Japanese
Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ in Vancouver is one of the best spot for an amazing experience in British Columbia!

Traditionally called Yakiniku, this Japanese barbecue spot is known for their delicious, fresh, 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.

As we do get very busy during peak hours and we do require reservations for maximum 2 hours dining time only. We are sorry for the inconveniences and we thank you for your cooperation.
For all reservations we do hold a 15 minute grace period for the reserved table, if the party is late after the 15min, the reservation will be automatically cancelled.

Again, we thank you for booking your reservation with Gyu-Kaku and we look forward in seeing you soon!

Sincerely,
Gyu-Kaku Vancouver

We usually go to Gyu-Kaku's West Broadway location in Vancouver, BC (more convenient for us), but this time was to introduce an out-of-town friend to Japanese BBQ. He was staying at a downtown hotel, so we walked to the downtown location. Another reliably good meal! Friendly bilingual (Japanese and English) waitstaff helped to provide an authentic-feeling experience. I had to explain to my friend that the shout "Irasshaimase!" means "Welcome!", not "Go away, the restaurant is full!" I think he is going to try the Calgary location now!

We had a family (adults )dinner for 5 and ordered the dinner for 6 as we felt the dinner for 4 would be too small. It would have been perfect if we wouldn’t have added a couple of special extra dishes they had. We were all so full! Both the service and the food was outstanding.

The manager was very friendly as well as our server. This has been an incredible experience with great food and service. Cooking yourself is definitely a different experience. Ambience was good and with the specials and a full belly, I definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a unique and satisfying experience!

Our server was great. Very quick and attentive. Filled up our water and tea multiple times throughout the night. Our food also came very quickly which was nice. Food is consistently of great quality.

When cleaning our table the server accidentally spilled some sauce onto one of our bowls of Icecream but he happily got us a replacement with extra large scoops. Great experience overall as always.

Obviously use MSG or some other form of food additive to make the heart pump hard all night long, preventing sleep. We spent a very bad night of discomfort as a result. Too noisy to hear person across the table speaking.

This was my first time doing Korean BBQ, and it won’t be the last. The food and drinks were great ! This made a hibachi seem dull in comparison to flavor and enjoyment. Hope we get one of these in the states where I live so I don’t have to drive so far for my next fix.

Horrible wait service. Hostess states we could have happy hour, our waiter took our happy hour order, then waiter came back and said he could give us happy hour because he enter the order past 6pm. We said okay and asked we would keep our original order. Half way through our meal, we were wondering what happened to out set menu. I asked the waiter and he the set menu we ordered was only for happy hour. It didn't dawn to him he should of made that more clear and provided the dinner menu... and we had six people in our party and should of figured out the eight extra dishes we ordered on top of the set that he only delivered was sufficient for a meal. Boy, service failed on so many levels. No tip and not coming back.

Our server were both nice, and very professional. But their hostess was so rude and unfriendly person, scare to go there again, she has never say "hi"or never properly greeted, kick us out using waiters. We know there was 2 hours limit. Somehow she hates us. NO more this restaurant, and I don't recommend for any business lunch or dinner. It is sad, cz I used to like there before.
