It was our first time and the waitress was wonderful. She helped us order and cook our meat selection. It was a very comfortable environment for our get-together with friends. We will go there again.

My family and I were seated right away with reservations! I come once every 6 months because it can be pricey and I don’t live near by. Either way, it’s always worth the wait! Always a hit and never a miss! Can’t wait to bring my ladies hopefully sooner then later!

The all you can eat was very worth it; like KBBQ but with much better variety. The service was outstanding, I never needed to wave anyone down, the waiter was always there when I needed something.

We went for Valentine's Day when they had three set menus. All looked fantastic. Plenty of food, tasted delicious. Lots of fun cooking at the table. Will definitely go back for the regular menu.

Food was delicious, great recommendations by our waiter, he was extremely attentive to our experience, his cocktail suggestions were spot on for both my wife and I. Prices were reasonable, recommend the hanger steak. Made reservations on Open Table, glad I did. The wait area is practically non existent, and because of the restaurant's popularity there was no place to stand without being in walkways or in booth areas. Minor inconvenience, if you get seated quickly. We will be back and bring friends, great social vibe to the place.

Everything was good except for the ambiance. From my seat at our table, I was looking at a wall that desperately needed painting. There were big chips in the paint all over the wall that I was facing, which really took the place down a notch in my opinion. The hostess at first wanted to seat us right in front of the Rest Room door, and I refused. Who wants that? Food and service were good, but until they spruce up the place , I'll wait to go back.

I went on 4th of July. I reserved a table but got the worst table in the restaurant. Then our waitress was really bad drinks were forgotton our menu was taken after we ordered only appetizers to start. We had to ask another waitress for a menu. We had to ask another waitress for napkins and bowls and to oil are grill. She was really bad. Then she added food that we did order. Then she did not take a discount of check. She rolled her eyes at me a lot. It was a real bad experience. Her name was stephanie and if i go back i dont want her serving me. I tipped her like 5% Of bill cause service was bad

I had dined at other Gyu-Kaku locations before (West L.A., Beverly Hills, Torrance) but this was my first time at the Valencia location. It's the first Gyu-Kaku I've seen that offers outdoor dining (a small outdoor area outside the restaurant, which is located in a suburban strip mall-- nothing fancy). It's a relatively small Gyu-Kaku and was a little less clean than their other locations, but not dirty/messy enough to be discouraged from eating there. This restaurant offers meats and sides you order and cook on a grill at your table, as well as pre-made dishes (for those who don't want to grill the food themselves). We ordered the limited time offer of premium AYCE for $40 per person, which was a great value in light of the selection, quality, and variety of foods offered on the menu. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Though I probably wouldn't return to this location due to distance, it's a good place to go for lunch or dinner.

I've been here before and don't remember the food being so salty. Maybe it was a fluke, but overall the food had too much pepper and salt. The service was good, they were attentive to our needs; our waters were always filled. The desert was a big upset. My wife bit into the chocolate cream filled brownie and found a piece of plastic. It was big enough to cause some damage had she swallowed it. She thought she had bit into caramel.

At any rate, they gave us 15% off the entire meal, which amounted to us paying 60 bucks instead of 65. I won't go there again.
