There were five of us for lunch. We tried all 11 different meats/chickens/shrimps. They are all very tasty and delicious. We had plenty of left over. We could've ordered four meals instead of five. My daughter enjoyed the left over when she returned from work.
Highly recommended!

I socialize with a group of folks who "love to eat and to eat delicious and plentiful foods!" Plus, we love to grill so this was the perfect lunch outing for us. DineLA is a lovely way to enjoy an assortment of taste bud explosions and Gyu-Kaku does not disappoint! Our 1:30 p.m. seating was prompt, our waitperson was attentive and swift with our orders/and needs, the varied entrée selections were just right, everything was fresh and great quality. We had a wonderful time and will dine again soon.

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!

Food and service are always good. Prices however, seem to go up every couple months. It used to be a great value. Now not so much. The lunch combo is a great value but any time outside of lunch can get pricey.

Came to celebrate my brother's birthday, love the happy hour prices and lunch menu option! The sukiyaki bibimbap rice was terrific, easily my favorite dish at Gyu-Kaku. I will most definitely go back for other occasions or even for lunch/late night dining.

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!
