Gyu-Kaku - Torrance
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.
The food and service was exceptional! Would definitely recommend.
The service was extremely poor. Our original waiter went to break, passed of off to another waiter whom we were introduced to. Soon after that we were told that we will have another waiter taking over our table. That waiter helped us out 1 time and never returned. We were left to pull a waiter through passing to get us whatever we needed. This continued throughout our entire experince at this restaurant. I wish I could say it was busy so I might understand but it wasn't and I don't.
I been this restaurant couple of times and you never get disappointed at all.. just happy hour need to be little bit longer like 4pm to 8pm...
This is a very popular location so reservations are a must. They allow patrons at 2 tops to sit next to each other. This causes crowding and safety issues for other patrons.
Food is excellent and always fun to cook your meal. Wait staff is courteous and attentive.
Everything was great... all you can eat menu is perfect
Quality Japanese BBQ, healthy food. Great ambience. Happy hour beer prices definitely great!
Since it was our Anniversary, we reserved a special table number
- Unable to accommodate due to poor reservation management.
Wait staff changed three times while we ate
- Waiters two and three were inattentive
Wait staff communication was poor
- Special food requirements were not initially communicated
My wife and I have seen this restaurant evolve with management.
When we lived locally, we patronized this location a lot.
However, it seems the rewards program no longer recognizes Silver Status members and the Point expiration has become ridiculously thin.
Matthew T. was the first manager we met at this location.
The last manager we knew at this site was Mary.
Both Matthew and Mary knew how to run this restaurant and were always very accommodating.
Of all of the 10+ locations we have patronized across the country, starting in New York, this was clearly the best, consistently, in food and service.
This visit, aside from the food, my wife and I were very disenchanted with our experience on Sunday.
Unfortunately, we had to drive from Thousand Oaks to find out.
This is where we come at least once a month. Servers are great! They know us by name and are super friendly. Kat, Alex, and Esmeralda are the best.
Love going here, tried going to other Korean bbqs and nothing compares.
Food and service was great.
It was a very nice place to enjoy Easter dinner. The food is always great if you cook it correctly! I would recommend anyone try this restaurant for a lovely change of pace.
Though quality of foods were good, the level of noise is a little too high. But no way.
Good food. They just need to do better at cleaning the table what I thought was wet was soy sauce and the seat had some on there too. On the floor was trash. Just seem like like rush to clean up to wipe the tables quickly and push stuff to the floor. Our waiter Allen was very pleasant.
I got an appoiment at 7 i get the table 7:35 whats the point to make a reservation
The food was great and the specials for the month were very taste. Would recommend anyone to try it.
Love this place! I go with my kids, or husband for date night or with friends for a girls night out!
This will always be one of my favorite restaurants. It’s not the most practical for business meals because of the noise level, but that can’t be helped because it’s busy and the meat cooking makes noise. Regardless, the servers are so friendly and kind and attentive. I love love love the food so much. I could eat here everyday and never get sick of it. I really recommend this place for social gatherings, date nights, lunches with friends, family meals. I really love it.
Great service, always make Birthday celebrations to remember.
Great as always
Price is very good. We don't eat a lot, so the all you can eat is not a great value for us, so we order ala cart and it makes for a very reasonable dinner. This trip, our burner did not light, so they had to move us. I thought some reasonable token of apology was warranted, but they offered nothing for the inconvenience, which was a little disappointing. Our last orders were very slow coming. House Sake is very good. Its very loud, so if you're looking for a nice quiet evening this is not for you. We come here often, we like it. So, yes, would recommend as an evening to get something good to eat. If you want to chat, this is not the place for it...
Good service but disappointment because they ran out of Ramen that was the purpose of me going there to eat & made the reservation
Great night out with friends, family or date night!
Great food! Great group setting!
The food is soooo good!
I first tried Gyu Kaku during a group dinner. Ever since that first visit, I come up with any possible excuse to meet a friend here. I have tried so many dishes and they are all so good, it's hard to choose. The new seasonal menu has a dessert like nothing I have ever tasted - match tiramisu is the best!
Gyu-kaku is one of our favorite family restaurants! Both our kids love going there, and with a nice kids' menu and a happy hour special that my hubby and I take advantage of, it's a win-win all around. See you again soon!!
Great Japanese BBQ!
Alex is a great server
Always delicious and the best service! Such an enjoyable family dinner!!
Had a wonderful dining experience at my favorite hangout. Gyu Kaku, you never fail!
Love this location best
I order what was supposee to be a fruity alcoholic drink. It tasted horrible. I only took a sip and kindly asked the waitress to replace it. She absolutely did and of course charged me for it.
I didnt tell her dont charge me for it but i thinl in good faith when a patron tells you they need their drink is full to the rim, they should just take it back and not charge for it.
Best service. Everyone was helpful, patient and very kind.
One of my favorite restaurants of all time .
I just love this place ,ever time we go is perfect to the food and servers..
Wait staff (Jill?) was very kind and attentive.
Awesome food to cook at your table. Staff is helpful in explaining the menu and how long to cook each type of meat. I always enjoy coming here.
Food was good, waitress was good but a bit too busy.
First time my waitress so only focusing on 2 other tables. First time the burners weren't hot enough
This is one of my favorite places to eat at. I however was disappointed at the price increase. To be honest I was always looking forward to happy hour prices, but now seeing everything was raised a dollar or two it makes me want to go less and find better value elsewhere. Friendly staff, great food... Nice remodel. I just miss old prices.
