I like the frequent changing of the grill so that we get clean grill to bbq another batch of meat avoiding burnt meat residual on the grill. Taste of the marinated meat was delicious. The waitress was attentative often coming around to check out on us to see if we need any help such as regulating the bbq stove, refilling our tea, explaining how long we should grill the meat. We ordered three lunch specials and one set, the meat was served in the right pace so that not all the meats were put on table all at once, crowding the table. The waitress did a good job in letting us know that the food for the Sakura set would be served later on. We were satisfied with the pricing of the lunch specials and Sakura set and found that they are of good value. two-hour maximum window for this visit is reasonable; we had enough time to grill and enjoy our food. Happy Hour was served even on weekends. The first time I was here was on a Saturday weekend. The food was plenty for two people. So, this is the 2nd time, we can
share the Sakura set together and add some lunch specials. The ambiance was good, not very busy and we could sit comfortably in a booth for six people. There was no rushing of food ordering. We could take our time to decide on what to order. We were greeted as soon as we entered the restaurant and was said sent out by a warm farewell too. I definitely would recommend this restaurant and this location to my friends. The service was exceptional and there were a variety of meat to choose from. Also, smokeless BBQ was one of our requirements to dine in this restaurant.

I've used this place for my son's b day dinner before and they served the free ice cream before. This time they didn't give anything or mentioned nothing even if I made a note when I reserved the seats. A little disappointed.

This is quickly becoming one of my favourites spots in Vancouver. I love the food, the atmosphere, and have I mentioned the food? You get a LOT for what you pay for. 4 of us got the 2 person special and with only a couple more extras we were all full to bursting. Love the options and the meat is always tender and delicious.

A little disappointed with my dining this time, we have made a reservation from app for 3:30pm. Due to traffic problem we were 5 mins late, I thought restaurant supposed to hold my table for 15 mins but I have ended up waiting for a table to be opened for more than 20 mins, surely when we started our dining, I couldn’t even get a glass water refill, I have asked 3 waitress for refill my tea and water they all answered to me sure, but I have kept waiting and waiting finally I got a my last waitress attention, because grill also need to be changed, anyway. This is my worse dining experience in this restaurant, I couldn’t believe I am getting this kinda service. It used to be the number one restaurant I wanna to go when it comes to my dining choice. But I have to rethink it again cause the service is bad now

We dined the day before Mother’s Day. And I was at the Richmond location one month ago and was impressed with the service and food. However we came early at 5:00 pm and comparatively the services between two locations are obvious. Meats were dropped off without telling us what they are. Every staff seemed to be in a hurry. There was no recognition from the staff for Mother’s Day when we have two mothers having dinner.

We went during super happy hour and although only a small handful of items had a super happy hour price, the rest of their menu was happy hour priced. This was great as we were able to try a lot of items for less than we expected. I would particularly recommend that carnivores take advantage of super happy hour pricing, as filet mignon is quite a bit cheaper during this time, as is most of the meat on the menu. My friend and I really enjoyed the experience as it was hands on, since you cook everything on the grill yourself. It also allowed us to eat a lot of meat at a cheaper price, as we often don't eat meat at restaurants as it's usually a lot more expensive than buying and cooking it at home. The only downside was the service was not great. Some items took far longer to come out than they should have, and it was almost impossible to flag down our server after they delivered our first batch of items for cooking. Definitely don't go expecting stellar service but the food and prices during super happy hour are worth a visit.

• pay street parking; Gyu-Kaku is located on the 2nd floor beside Ihop
• I recommend reservations as this place is always busy & jam packed, you’ll see why
• meal sets are pretty good, its good enough for 2-3 people $50 for the good ones
• the meat marinade is just so good that it’ll make you salivate every time you think about this resto
• comes with small sides like corn & edamame unlike the typical Korean resto wherein they have Kimchi & other side dishes
• for dessert, I chose Lychee ice cream, its light & flavourful
• great service, they top up your tea without you even asking
• they also have points system, if you often, you’ll get free food according to their promo
• check out the photos

Really delicious beef sukiyaki and the chicken and shrimp barbecue was surprisingly good, considering the main focus of the menu is beef. Wonderful Takoyaki too. The only complaint I had was that the hostess didn't offer my daughter her birthday ice cream, which was supposed to be free on her special day! We ended up driving to Glenburn's instead, though, which was probably a good decision. :P
