Great food, fair prices and the restaurant was clean with a nice aesthetic overall. Grilling my own food is fun.
Was a bit disappointed by the service here at Broadway compared to the Nelson St location. The first server we had rushed us to order and then forgot the promo code I gave her. The manager applied the discount at the end though so it was alright.

Food always arrive super fast, service is always on top. Waiter will come by a few times to pick up used plates and ask if everything is alright. It is best to make reservations as they are busy all the time.

as always, the food and service are great.
just one criticism, the outside common area of the restaurant is filthy and hasn't been cleaned in years. it needs a good thorough power washing, for the whole building including the stairs and parking lot area!
all the business tenants in this building need to get the landlord to start cleaning.
it's the first impression by customers and right now, very unappealing.

Servers were super nice and food was delicious! The restaurant was pretty busy...we were there for late night happy hour...but our server was still attentive. The food came out fairly quickly from the time we ordered. The marinade on the meats were delicious! The sukiyaki bimbimbap was yummy. Will definitely come back again.

Food and service excellent.....table ready within 10 minutes. We were finished eating and were thinking about dessert when the fire alarm went off and sprinklers turned off all the barbecues! Staff was good -quick to get everyone out, we offered to pay since we were finished and they basically said to" forget it- no one pays tonight" Hope everything is okay there. (We didn't see any flames) This was our second time here - a fun experience until the alarm went off!

Spicy pork was very dry. Taste awful.
Basil chicken .. every time I grill it sticks. Every single time. I really don't know what's the trick ?
Avocado chicken salad. Where is the avocado...????
Spinach and broccoli are too salty
Broadway location I have tried few times .. always disappointed. Still prefer the Nelson vancouver location .

Gyu-Kaku is great for friend and family gatherings, and special occasions like birthdays - especially if you have a smaller group. The staff are amazing; food is staggered well so the table doesn't get too crowded with too many dishes. It does get loud, but nothing unmanageable. Great for when you want some meat with healthy options on the side.

My wife and I went here for our wedding anniversary. We had a 5:00 reservation and waited for almost 10-15 minutes for a table to be ready. We had edamame, meat dishes like BBQ pork, garlic mushrooms and asparagus. Food was exquisite and at a good price. We liked the idea of cooking our food at the table. Would definitely go here again!

Came here for a birthday dinner with my family and we all had a lot of fun. We’d been to the location in Richmond before but wanted to try something new and it was worth the drive out to Broadway. The service was great - the server was very helpful and even let us know of all the suggested cooking times for the meats we ordered. Since we went during Monday (all day happy hour) the prices were reasonable, and even though we got a combo that was meant for 2 + a sukiyaki bowl, we were all very full after, considering we all have big appetites! The vibes are good because everyone is just there to have a good time and enjoy a nice meal. It’s also possible to find free parking in the residential area (after 6pm it’s unlimited).

The food was delicious ! I go here for my birthdays and last time with my friend . The food was amazing and there was so much variety, come for happy hour if you want a cheaper price because it is a little more on the expensive side. The only down side was that it was a little hard to get a hold of the service and our waitress was a little unwelcoming but everything else was great and I will be back again for sure.

This is the second time I've been to Gyu-Kaku, both times at the Broadway location. One of the best experiences I've ever had at a restaurant. Made a reservation online, and were seated immediately. Our server was amazing as he genuinely cared about our experience (ie gave us recommendations on how to cook our meat, extremely attentive at refilling our water). His attitude was so positive, caring, and he made this experience unforgettable. Redeemed offers from their Gyu-Kaku app and it was an extremely efficient process with him. The meat in the combo we ordered was well marinated, and the sauces were also delicious! The ambiance is probably louder than a normal restaurant, but it is louder in a more positive way, which adds to the experience. Will definitely be back for the top-notch food/service very soon.

It was my first time dining in a restaurant where you cooked your own food, What an experience it was. The food there is top quality and the value for money is quiet good. My 3 companions and I got the cheaper 4 person food deal and we were stuffed after dinner, we hardly had space for the smores. Great food and lovely staff, a must if you are ever in Vancouver.
