    I prefer Gyube where its one set price for all you can eat as this place adds up in price VERY quickly. They charge for every single dish including simple things like kimchi or regular side dishes you would get for free at most similar places. The “premium” $32 short rib is not worth the high price. I will stick to Gyube or Shinta. Service was VERY GOOD however. 2 people with 1pitcher of beer ($12/pitcher special) came out to $180 after tax and tip.

    The amount of food you get for your money is fantastic, and it tasted amazing. Our waiter was excellent, and the drinks specials were cheap. The interior was nice but could use a small improvement. I highly recommend and will be back.

    One of my wife’s fav restaurants now. Food is pretty authentic. Good ambience and very convenient downtown location. We had a nice selection of starters, my wife then had some grilled meat and both my son and I opted for the garlic noodles.

    Fantastic dinner! A wonderful break from the usual :) we’ll be back. The only complaint I had was that our server was hard to hear over the music, not her fault in any case, but being our first time we were having trouble hearing her reccomendations. :) The Meat Lovers package at happy hour is a great deal and a fantastic intro to the Japanese bbq experience!

    The waiter was really nice and he took the time to explain the menu to us. They were always around when we need something. We went late so we had to choose before a certain time but it was fine. It was a lot of food for three. But the taste and sauces were great! Very satisfied with the experience for the first time we go there.

    The food is amazing and delicious as expected as I have been to Gyu-Kaku many times. However, it was very apparent our server was trying to rush our dinner to get us out very quickly. We had our reservation at 7:45pm and the last call was at 8:30pm… also meaning food will no longer be served after this point. I had ordered one of the large group packages they offered which is supposed to be a 1.5-2hour dinner service that came to be 45 minutes… for a meal of $170+ I would have liked to enjoy my experience. If their expectation is to have all the food out by 8:30pm then they shouldn’t allow a 7:45pm reservation or should have informed me. It is also noted online their last seating time is at 8:30pm which does not make sense why their last call would be at 8:30pm? We felt like we had to chow down our food.

    Came for lunch. Great cuts of meat for the BBQ grill. The lunch options were filling and we literally rolled out for $30/person. We could have ordered less and still have been quite satisfied. Service was attentive. Our favourite was the beef tenderloin, pork toro and the marinated beef toro. Also the seaweed soup and the salad were both really tasty. Normally we don't bother with them but the salad was excellent.

    If you enjoy table cooking this is the place! I'd think it's good for multiple people to socialize, cook and eat together. We normally go for their set since we can't eat that much (They also have All You Can Eat Option). Their set that's said to be for 2 people, we struggle to finish with 3 people. They also have daily alcohol special which seems like a good deal.

    Food is good. Service is good and not pushy. Fair food prices. The only downside is reservation. So far my experience in reservations is 50/50. I have experience on arriving for reservation and having a table and arriving for reservation and not have a table available. I also don't think the place easily accessible to people with specific physical impairment.
