It was mentioned to multiple people, including our Open Table reservation that it was my birthday and I didn’t get a birthday dessert, song, etc. Dessert was included in the price of our meal, so it’s not like it cost the restaurant extra. A candle would have been nice. Gyu Kaku is our go-to restaurant for special occasions, but we won’t be back. Benihana gets our business now.

I dine here just for the Harami in Secret Pot, but EVERYTHING here is delicious.

Good food and service. They didn’t rush us and were helpful with giving us a tour of their menu offerings.

Great food. We had the all you can eat option and sometimes it took a while to get the food ordered. The staff made up for it by allowing us to go longer.

We had an awesome experience at Gyu Kaku for my husbands birthday dinner. 4 kids and 3 adults and we had a blast. I recommend the all you can eat so you can try multiple items

Food has become too salty. Air quality has worsened over the years. The main dining hall is now too smoky. Can't make conversation over the noise. Meat selections has decreased in quality as well as variety. Started to come here when it first opened, this time will be our last.

my only complaint is they took about 25 minutes to seat us. We were there on time. Everything else was great.

While the food remains excellent, the restaurant itself is looking a bit tired. Walls need to be repainted, floors refinished, and small repairs made to screens, etc. It's a busy restaurant, but currently, the physical plant lets down the excellence of the food and choices. Won't stop me going, but needs a refresh.

The food is always great at this restaurant and we visit here quite often. The service is usually outstanding as well, but on this particular visit, the service was a little lacking. We had ordered the AYCE special dinner and just about every time we wanted to order something, we had to flag down a waiter. Also, we realized it was towards the end of the the evening, but also had to flag down our waiter not only to get our check, but also had to flag someone down to take care of it.

Me and my boyfriend love this place we come all the time and have been coming for the past 4 valentines but this year on v-day I don’t like how they only had a special menu with only 3 courses you could choose from (course A, B, C) not the actual menu.. we are usuals so we no what we like on the menu. But we choose the B course and it was way to much food for only two people and when we got the bill the waitress charged us for the A course which was more expensive.. which was disappointing

Always good! Food quality and service is consistent every time we go. Parking can be a challenge, during peak business hours.
