Gyu-Kaku - Torrance Ratings and Reviews
I spoke to Joshua the manager because I didn’t appreciate the hostess who answered providing me false info before I asked to speak to supervisor. When I arrived to the restaurant we spoke and he he took care of the situation and apologized and said he would check his phone lines and servers which I doubt he did. Hopefully I won’t have to deal with anything like that in the future.
We had a reservation for my son's 12th bday. While we were not seated right away, everyone was nice. This was our 1st time, and we will definitely be going back. Our server, Eder (spelling ?) was amazing!! He explained how everything worked, including all the different deals, and was extremely attentive -- never had an empty water glass!
Awesome service. The food came out in a timely manner so that we didn’t have 10 plates just waiting. Everyone in the place seemed to love their job and willing to help. The manger and general manager were both there so it was nice to see them working and interacting with customers which makes for a great place just like Gyu-Kau!
Gyu-kaku was a go to spot for a date the first time i tried it. Loved it so much that i ended up taking my friends and family there. Their meat is very good quality, and the setting is cozy enough to feem
Comfortable in. The best thing about this place is their staff. They attend to my every need every time i go. They also take care to replace your grill top before it gets too dirty.
Their takiyaki appetizer is very good, would reccomend.
The food is pretty good overall, but nothing to hype about. Personally, I find the marinade a bit too heavy or sweet on some meats, but nothing tasted bad. The real winner for me is the bang for your buck: a single $60 meat set served 3-4 people and left us stuffed!
Gyukaku does not disappoint when it comes to good food and good service. You can cook the meat to your liking. Extensive menu. The noise level of the music is too loud as we could not hear each other across the table. There is a difference between energetic and just plain noisy.
Always great food I've never had anything from the menu I didn't like. AYCE options and Happy Hours. Bring your appetite and try something new....The wait staff is friendly and fast never a dull moment. Very loud so if you're looking for quite wrong place to come. But this is a fun place so make sure you're in the right mood when you come in no long faces....
