    A wonderful find. Great Japanese BBQ. Their are multiple menus. We chose the $45/person menu that comes with multiple appetizers and then choices of an additional appetizer, A, B, or C options for main courses, vegetables, and then dessert. Much food and it was all excellent. Service was amazing. The main courses are cooked by the guests themselves over a burner at the table. The waitperson comes by periodically to clean or replace the grate of the burner as well as checking up on us. A great experience that we will repeat in the near future.

    My boyfriend and I had a fantastic dinner at Gyu-Kaku enjoying Korean BBQ. Our servers Rudolph, Dez, and Jen were absolutely amazing; they were attentive, friendly, and made our dining experience truly enjoyable. The food was absolutely delicious. We tried a variety of meats including three beef choices and spicy pork which were all seasoned perfectly and we cooked to perfection on the grill. The flavors were bold and mouthwatering, and we couldn't get enough. The side dishes and sauces provided added a nice touch to the meal. We got the cheesy corn and zucchini. We left feeling satisfied and already planning our next visit. Overall, our experience at Gyu-Kaku was fantastic. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was lively, and the service from Rudolph, Dez, and Jen made the evening even more memorable. We will definitely be returning soon.

    Dishes were fairly tasty. Unless you’re incredibly hungry the AYCE may not be the best deal, ordering a la carte will be just as satisfying and for less per person. Service was good and dishes came out quickly.
