Gyu-Kaku - Vancouver, BC | Nelson
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!
I came for my birthday dinner with my boyfriends family. It was their first time going to gyu so I ordered for them and they loved everything that arrived. Excellent service as always. I recommend this place and location often and eat here once a week
The service is great and the food is good. table fit for small groups not over 6 and noise level is acceptable only if your next table too high...:)
Love their stone bowl rice, taste so delicious and the ice-cream is a must try especially the sesame one and green tea flavour good too.
Will recommend the restaurant to friends and perfect for a small group party.
I was pretty disappointed with quality of food and the service. Beef Kalbi was chewi and flavor was so so. Service was slow. Not the best experience and I don't think I will come back
I’ve been a customer for over 10years and every visit was so good. But this time, the beer tasted stale, so the server informed the manager. He offered the 2nd round but they charged it. They should be more careful with the quality control. Bad taste beer ruins the flavor of great food.
Service was excellent, food was to die for, and the location is perfect. Will come here again and again!
Love the food
More than some restaurants in Vancouver, even high-end restaurants are filled with too much noise and super loud music all the time, however; the Gyu-Kaku is very comfortable because I do not need to shut
all the time. Sometimes so exhausting.
Thanks, the Gyu-Kaku
Great service. Good lunch time deal.
Wonderful friendly staff accommodated us after the fireworks just before closing. We got a big order in and they took care of us wonderfully.
I absolutely love gyu kaku it’s my favorite restaurant I think the servers could be a little more consistent at checking on the table because I like to order lots of drinks so I’d like to make reorders as often as possible otherwise everything is amazing
Awesome little place with a good late night happy hour!
This place is awesome. It is a great environment, friendly staff and the food is authentic. It is a unique dining experience as you cook the meal at your table and the beer is ice cold.
It was super happy hour and the value was really good for late lunch.
Excellent service with delicious food. The combo has so much food. We couldn’t even finish it. Highly recommended!
Excellent food and service!! Always great to come back!!
We had fun
Repeat visits over several years and the quality has remained consistently good. Come for happy hour/super happy hour if you can. Wide selection of dishes, not just bbq.
amazing service! my parents were really happy!!!!!!
I’ve always been a fan of Gyu-Kaku: from Hong Kong to Vancouver. It never disappoints me. My most recent experience was July 1, where I came here with my friends and family. It’s my sister’s birthday so I booked a table in advance. We had great food and the staff sang a birthday song for my sis!!! She’s so happy and we had a great time together. Definitely will come back in future.
The server forgot to bring the food until we had finished eating all.
Service was awesome and food was great. The servers was very nice and helpful. We had a great atmosphere at Gyu-Kaku and would definitely come again!
Great service! Very attentive and friendly. Quick and efficient but delicious and nice to have two hours to dine.
Bad idea to go there because u have to cook u food they’re bring to small pieces beef and chicken to but it on the barbecue gril.. we don’t like it stupid
Run down and dirty. Quality of meats not great. Our stove was not hot enough. All around unsanitary conditions. We left after ordering and trying to cook food as we were too scared to risk eating the food when the place was so unclean.
The food is ok, the service can improve
We much prefer the Gyu Kaku located in Richmond, the kitchen was quite loud and our waitress came across as moody.
Will not be going back to Nelson St.
Great food, good service, pricing seems fair for a large party. Good ambiance and tonnes of dining options.
Great service and our server was in training she did very well and checked on us periodically and made sure our beverages wasn’t empty.
Service was excellent, the waiters were extremely nice and helpful. The meats were fresh, tasty and high quality. Overall, it's a memorable experience at Gyu Kaku!
this is one of my favourite dine restaurant ♥️
sakura lunch course is a really good deal for 2 ppl and of course so yummy!!! service is awesome as well!
My server was excellent and very helpful! First time to this restaurant had a great experience! Will be back again!
Awesome place to go with a group of friends! Lots of choices for food and drinks. There is something for everyone.
Great interactive lunch. Delicious selections.
Our server was all over the place . Kept asking very stupid questions in return to our questions ! Did not feel comfortable with him
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!
This restaurant has such a wonderful authentic Japanese atmosphere. The food and service are ALWAYS exemplary!
Reservation works for this restaurant. Unlike other where yiu reserve and still have to wait for long. Good value for lunch on weekdays.
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.
