最終の男性アジア人担当者が最悪で食べ放題なのに全く注文させてくれません。待て待てと言われます。結局注文できたのは2回。付けたれも私達だけ貰えず態度も最悪でチップなんて払いたくありませんでした。(払いましたが)

We love this place! Service was simply the best, food even better. A hidden gem, luckily for us we have dined at a Gyu-Kaku on the mainland and knew what to expect.

Quality of meat is not great. We got the chef's special and the meats were either overly marinated or chewy. Marinade was way too sweet.

Food was delicious! There were 5 of us (two of whom don't typically go crazy in AYCE places) and we opted for the course meal for 4 and it was perfect! Food was delicious, all the meats were marinated well and the smores dessert at the end was very nice!

Booth are awful for tall people and staff is not disposed to help relocating you. The kitchen is not trained to cut a Japanese cabbage salad properly. Apparently pictures on menus are not enough to show when something is done wrong.

I make sure to visit Gyu-Kaku every time when I'm in Honolulu (which is usually twice a year) and it never disappoints. As usual, the food and service was excellent and I'm already looking forward to my next visit!

Overall would love to give this place 5 stars. If you come for the food, drinks, service, then this is the place. The only downfall is, i was here 2 months ago and would figure with covid that the owner operator of the establishment would have spruced the place up a bit. Fresh paint works miracles and cleanliness at the foyer creates a sense of cleanliness. Again for everything else this place hit the spot.

We went there one night during our honeymoon trip. The food was very good, the service, not so much. We saw our waiter only once after he brought us the water and turned on the grill. After that, other servers were stopping at our table to clear plates out of the way. He didn’t explain the menu or process of how it worked so we learned the hard way by ordering everything on the menu. We ended up leaving food on the table since we were told we can take food home but when asked for a to-go box he said we can’t take food home from all you can eat. If we would’ve had another server the experience would’ve been way better.
