We ate here before a 7 pm broadway show. The waiter was very helpful explaining how to order. The meats were surprisingly lean and tasty. We cooked everything except the rice on the grill in the middle of the table. It was like fondu on steroids. We were all very pleasantly surprised.
Très copieux. Bon rapport qualité /prix surtout par rapport à l’emplacement (5min de Time square et le jour de Noël ). Service impeccable.
Loved dining here!! Loved everything about the food and the drinks and grilling my dinner! Will definitely be back again!
Super fun and delicious food. Our tweenies loved the food and especially the s'mores. Kind of pricey though. I don't think that rice should be charged at such an exorbitant rate. Should only be at cost or $1 max per bowl.
Great service. Great drinks. Great prices.
Excellent value with outstanding service. Will definitely return. The smores at the end of our meal was the perfect touch!
A friend and I decided to meet for happy hour. As he lives in Harlem and I’m in Brooklyn, we typically meet in the Times Square are as a middle point. He had been to Gyu-Kaku before and I wanted to try it.
We arrived at 3:30pm which was during their happy hour making it perfect timing. I checked in with the hostess as I had made a reservation. My friend suggested we sit at the bar so we did that.
We started with drinks and weren’t sure on food quite yet. After ordering our second drink we decided to order food. We both ordered the Spicy Tuna Volcano and then he got ramen and I got th Garlic noodles. Without question, the Spicy Tuna Volcano was amazing. We both enjoyed them and were quite happy we decided to get two orders. Our other options were delicious but not amazing.
While I’d definitely visit again because the happy hour menu & prices are great, I will say the service was lacking. The hostess wasn’t welcoming and failed to check me in correctly for my reservation. The bartender wasn’t friendly nor was she attentive to anyone seated at the bar. Thankfully her shift ended and her replacement was quite friendly.
We had a very big group so maybe it was difficult because of that. We had to preorder everything two days before but still there was so much confusion who is getting what and took us awhile to get the food. But waiters tried hard to make up for this and we even got free desserts. So overall a great experience.
We always love coming here! Everything is delicious and they have the best happy hour!
Overall we had a great experience here. Food was so good. And especially for the price. The only problem we had was the fact that we had a 7:30pm reservation, arrived at 7:15 and weren't seated until 8pm because of the fact that they 'forgot'. Meanwhile the table was ready as soon as we asked them what was going on, they seated us. Other then that slight issue, everything went very well.
Our party of 3 was pleased with the overall experience. The wait with our reservation was 10 minutes and once seated the Staff was attentive and friendly. The meat selections were of good quality.
This place was awesome! The food was tasty and well seasoned. The Japanese bbq was something I’d always wanted to try and this place did not disappoint. Super excited to go after we saw Kinky Boots. It was right around the corner. The vibe and energy were great. Check out this place. It was about $70 a person with some adult beverages. I would probably not take kids under 8 if you are going to bbq bc of the open flame. It might be a little anxiety inducing.
I was seated at my rsvp time and was waited by a fantastic waitress by the name of angeli(sorry not to sure how it’s spelled) the food was superb as always. Fast and tasty.
What a fun place to eat!! Food was excellent, wait staff was efficient and pleasant. Great place to eat before or after a show. Will definitely be back.
Amazing!!!!!! We absolutely loved everything we could est from the menu!
Staff is very nice loveeee with a passion one of the bartenders she a blue dress on love that place food is good wish there was a little more poultry to the menu and seafood but I heard every location is different but other then that this place will be my go to hangout with friends , girlfriend, etc.
I come here a lot. Introduced it to my friend & service was better than ever.
Gyu-Kaku always gets it right. Food is very flavorful, staff is extremely warm and accommodating, and atmosphere is calm, soothing!!
Favorite spot to eat when in the City!!
Originally I thought this restaurant offered Sushi as well. Upon arriving and finding that I was wrong I was a bit disappointed but the Restaurant surprised me with exceptional food. As a self taught Chef I am very picky. This restaurant nailed it.
The noise level depends on the time, the closer to the night the noisier it gets, but it is not that bad you can have conversations without yelling.
Totally Recommended place. I have eaten there for lunch and dinner. and if your table is not ready yet, you can try the awesome cocktails at the bar.
Perfect for an impromptu small group lunch! Get to know how much food to order if you go for bbq - otherwise lunch will take a while, accounting for cook time.
They were out of almost everything I tried to order—drinks, food, everything. The music was also quite loud and while the service was quick and friendly, I was a little surprised that no part of the meal was comped considering they were out of so much.
truly terrible. really bad food. wildly overpriced . felt dirty. we live in NY so to get caught in tourist trap like this one made it feel even worse. we had never been to this restaurant and thought it would be ok given prior reviews. it was not. i have never reviewed any restaurant before but feel we want to warn others. (btw the waiter did his best to make the experience better for us)
Food was really sub par this time. We are big fans of Gyu Kaku but will not return. Meat was fatty and had lots of white cartilage. We even upgraded and chose the higher quality meats, and they were still full of fibrous tissue that was chewy and tough. Service was also very sub par, we ordered fried rice which only came after we asked 2 different servers for it, and only after everything was already cooked. We had no specific server, and no one came over to check on us, or to make sure if everything was ok. No one offered dessert or coffee, and we essentially just asked for our check and ended our meal. No one came to change the grill, as they usually do, until we also had to ask for that. Really disappointing meal.
Great team work with the staff. Great prices at happy hour. Great drinks. Thank you for accommodating us an hour before our reservation time.
We thouroughly enjoyed our food. The appetizer with the fried rice and spicy tuna was delicious. Cooking our own food on the table grill was a ton of fun and my teenagers really liked it.
The downside was the service. We waited for half an hour past our reservation time to be seated. That would have been ok. I understand, busy Friday night, but then... The hostess who took us to our table told us since they were busy we had a two hour maximum at the table and if we weren’t done on time, we would be asked to leave. Just rubbed me the wrong way. We had a show to get to, so the time constraint was not a problem - but a threat instead of an apology was enough to earn a negative review on the service. We got our meat first and expected the veggies, but when they didn’t come, we finally stopped someone to ask for them. Rice came 10 minutes after that. Not sure if that is how it always is, or if the busy Friday night meant that things were served sporadically. Then one of the 4 waiters who took turns taking care of our table turned off our burner. He hadn’t brought us our s’mores dessert. So that was another issue.
Truth is the food was excellent, and it was a fun evening. I’d like to go back on a slow Tuesday night or for lunch and see how the whole thing should be served. Despite the service it was a good time with good food.
I have been to the W 44th St. location twice. The food is fresh and the waitstaff is friendly and accommodating. It's a loud restaurant, but in a happy way. The booths in the back are very comfortable, although it is a good idea to ask your waitperson to turn the grill down. The portions are generous and a very good deal during happy hour.
It’s gyu-kaku. Nothing needs to be mentioned, solid 5 as always.
It was perfect and very friendly
Buena comida el servicio puede mejorar un poco
Cooking your own food turned out to be a ton of fun! Fully recommend.
The combo has pretty much in it, but most meat tastes the same, it gets a little boring if kept eating. The rice in stone pot is delicious.
I liked the idea of cooking at the table. But, I felt it was very much a tourist spot and a chain mentality. Very loud. The staff was helpful and friendly but I felt it all a bit worn out. I felt the portions were small. Too touristy for me.
For Korean BBQ, I think next time I'll head to Korean Town.
Friendly environment been coming here for years celebrated an anniversary that day so was a joyous occasion but great food n good vibes highly recommend
After reading a lot of positive reviews we made a reservation and were not dissapointed! The food was excellent and the waiter named A was really nice and helpful. We will come back in the future when we visit New York again!
Whenever we have visitors, Gyu-Kaku will always be on our list of choices to eat. I know they will never be disappointed with where I’m taking them. Don’t forget to try the Toro beef, melts in your mouth kind of meat! Always a very pleasant experience whenever we eat.
If I want to impress anyone or have a fun time with friends and family—I bring them to Gyu-Kaku. It’s a great experience!
Good place to date and meet with friends!
My best friend and I went for my birthday we had a good time, this is our favorite spot in the city. Very affordable prices , great menu.
