Gyu-Kaku - Toronto
Traditionally called Yakiniku, this Japanese barbecue spot is known for their delicious, fresh (never frozen), high-quality meats!
Enjoy an ice cold beer as you grill your own meat. Happy Hours offer the best deals on food and drinks, so be sure to wind down and get the night started right with us.
My husband and I went there as our belated Valentine's Day dinner. We just moved to the area and found them recommended on google--100%, 10 outta 10, would go there a 1,000 more times without question.
Our waiter was knowledgable with the menu and talked us into doing smaller portions than we originally planned, which was thankful on our part because we were stuffed by the end. (Still made room for the chocolate lava cake and two rounds of s'mores though). Only downside I guess is that they weren't licensed for liquor, but I'm pregnant so that didn't really bother me at all.
If you do go, try one of their meal combos! It's a great way to get a taste of the best, and if you want more, you can always add on to the order! We did a happy hour combo, $80+ worth of food for only $50. For the two of us, it ended up being $95 which we were not expecting at all--we were prepared to be paying much more!!
You need to renew the alcohol license cause I wasn’t able to prove the sake :’(
Great place to eat and fantastic value. It can get a bit smokey though as some guests are not sure how to cook their food and overdo it.
Great food! Amazing service by Tatsu. Best server we've had!
The waiter was great, it was our first time and he explained to us his recommendations and the specials (happy hour) they had. Will definitely come back!
Very nice service!!! Foods are absolutely awesome
The food here is SOOOO good. Even though you do grill it yourself, the quality and selections of meats is excellent and the different marinades are so tasty. I’m glad we live so nearby. ;)
Everything was great except that I found the music was too loud so that, it was hard to take to my friends. It would be so much better if the music sound is lower. Thank you.
Service was great as always, and food delicious. Great cocktails. Food is bit pricey, even during Happy Hour.
Service is always excellent! Food is good and value is very good I would highly recommend a visit and you'll be hooked.
Very good food and a nice peaceful place to enjoy a nice evening dinner.
Great quality meats and amazing service. It's only a tad bit pricier compared to other bbq-style eats, but for the quality and service, totally worth.
Would come again and recommend to others.
Amazing happy hour menu - lots of delicious options - fantastic choice of cocktails mixed with soju / sake - overall a really good time! Kimchi was on point and s’mores to finish the meal was a fantastic conclusion!
The service was really good. everything was on time. They always check up on you. Really good customer service. would love to comeback again!
Everything was awesome. My only complaints are that it is quite pricey for the portion size, and all the meats I ordered were on the tough side. I think it would be helpful if the amount of servers increased, and/or if there was a table bell of some sort for the tables that are a bit out of sight.
Great value for the lunch special and food was fresh and delicious as usual.
Our server was very kind and patient. The combo for two is definitely enough for two (girls at least). We ordered another chicken karaage and the two of us ended up with a food coma. We tried the beer cocktail, I think beer+ginger ale may be my new fav cocktail.
Lovely atmosphere, great quality meat choice and great staff. Gyu-kaku has becomes a staple place for our family hangout.
A bit pricey but ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS
Always love coming here, gives a pretty good authentic yakiniku experience, and for those who haven't had this type of food before they explain everything.
And of course the food is amazing. The variety of really good meats is always on point and they're always so tasty.
Yummy seasonal cocktails too
Very good and fun place to go with your family and friends :) I went there with my husband. There are family including a baby in front of us, and many young girls next to us. You may think that the place looks like Korean BBQ place except the price. It’s not. The beef is tender, chicken is soft and tasty, and veggies are fresh. If you care about the quality of food, I would recommend you to go there instead of Korean BBQ place. Don’t forget to get Gyukaku app!
Great food and great service with friendly staffs!
Quality meat, quality food overall and i have a wonderful time with my friend!
I have been coming here ever since they have open, you will walk out extremely happy and satisfied after your meal! It’s not great for one person to eat but it’s fantastic if you have two or more people!
Food are awesome！！
Great food and fabulous service. Would definitely recommend.
Christmas get together with friends
Can get very busy on weekdays at noon so arrive a few minutes early to avoid a 45 mins wait or make reservations in advance. Lunch specials are a great value! Customer service is always great!
I had s great time. I've been following Gyu-Kaku on Instagram for a while and the food I ate was just as good as the photos made it seem. I was very happy.
Just love the food there!
Yakiniku style of dining is excellent if you want control over how soft or hard your meat is. What makes it even better in Gyu-Kaku is that you won’t reek of barbecue after eating. They have good ventilation and heating equipment. The fried chicken karaage and kalbi short rib are a must-have. Don’t forget to download the app to earn points while you’re enjoying your barbecue.
So much fun to cook at the table!
Reservation should be allowed from two people. Other wise a couple cannot enjoy a dinner at here.
Great food as always! Absolutely recommended!
service and food quality has gone down side comparing to its grand opening.
Great food and excellent customer service! However, the noise level gets too noisy but other than that everything was great!
