Japanese
Gyu-Kaku, meaning "Horn of the Bull" in Japanese, provides the authentic Japanese yakiniku (grilled barbecue) dining experience where customers share premium cooked meats over a flaming charcoal grill, while sipping on Japanese sake, shochu, and frosty cold beers. Gyu-Kaku offers a wide range of meats including the best-seller Harami Skirt Steak in Miso Marinade and Certified Angus Kalbi Short Rib in Tare Sweet Soy Marinade.

There are over 700 Gyu-Kaku restaurants worldwide, and the first U.S. location opened in West Los Angeles in 2001. Our Award Winning Restaurant was awarded the Hot Concept Award in 2007 and the demand keeps growing! Our fun and exciting experience allows for everyone to enjoy barbecuing at their table. The best part? Our Smokeless Roaster. With our down draft system, the smoke is sucked into the bottom of the table and away from guests!

    I took my niece to experience the establishment. We had the upmost terrible service. We could not get any food that we ordered. The waiter took our order but never and I mean never came back. Overall they were rated very highly with me but now they are at the bottom of my list. It is going to take them quite a awhile to regain my trust in them for quality service.

    Service was pretty good and quick. Did the premium all you can eat and tried quite a bit of food. Food tasted okay. Not anything special in my opinion. Eventually it just all started to taste bland. I don’t personally think it was worth it and probably won’t be coming back.

    Overall I enjoyed the experience. Service could use a bit of work. The host seems a tad rude and once seated it took a while for server to come around and greet/place menu and take drink order. Appetizers were also brought out same time as food. Overall I will give another shot although not super impressed after this first visit.

    My main concern with a review of a restaurant is obviously how is their food and how is their service. The food was excellent and the service was great. So would I go again absolutely. The ambience is nice but nothing exceptional. They were very busy so of course the noise factor was a little high. However, that means people enjoy going there.

    Great concept, excellent service, delish food. Fun place to gather with friends. Grace, our server, happily explained the various cuts of meats and respective marinades. She was also candid in telling us which items that she herself had not yet tried. We appreciated her feedback, and her advice on what to try next when we return. And we are definitely coming back again soon! I'd also forgotten my receipt and called the restaurant from home that evening, and they texted it to me. Their responsiveness was awesome!

    We went to Gyu-Kaku during the Queen's Feast week, so you get a four-course meal, salad, appetizer, entree, and dessert. The salad and soup were quite good. However, the entrees were not as good. Most of the meat was quite tough and hard to eat, and not all that flavorful even though it had been marinated. For dessert, they offered smores, which should have been an easy win. Unfortunately, the marshmallows and graham crackers were both old and stale which made them barely edible. When our waiter showed up he did his best to emphasize the regular menu and dismissing the menu for the Queen's Feast. After that, the service was quite good. They were prompt with the food and cleaning the table. They also advertise two-hour free parking. After going through and using the voucher code I still had to pay!

    Lunch service was slow. I wish our waitress was more attentive about clearing finished plates/ items. I helped by stacking empty plates and leaving it on the edge and sometimes it would just stay there for several more rounds of interaction.

    Overall it was a good experience but I probably would not do it again. We paid with tip, about $85 for two people that really did not have much to it. Also one of the beef strips that we were eating had a refrigerated taste to it. Like it's been in the refrigerator for a while. The rest of the meat was fine. We lived in Japan for four years and we would cook this way at restaurants and it was a lot of fun. But they gave you other things besides a few strips of beef and rice. It would Nice if they could've gave us a few vegetables besides soy beans.

    Got sat relatively quick. Took about 5-8 minutes for our order to be taken. The guy who took our order left, another guy came and asked for our order after it was already taken two times…Food didn’t take forever to come but they never seem to have all you can eat options even though it’s always advertised. Overall ok but the servers looked lost and rushed. Definitely not a date night vibe.
