Gyu-Kaku - Vancouver, BC | Broadway
Enjoy an ice cold beer as you grill your own meat. Happy Hours offer the best deals on food and drinks, so be sure to wind down and get the night started right with us.
Traditionally called Yakiniku, this Japanese barbecue spot is known for their delicious, fresh, high-quality meats!
As we do get very busy during peak hours and we do require reservations for maximum 2 hours dining time only. We are sorry for the inconveniences and we thank you for your cooperation.
For all reservations we do hold a 15 minute grace period for the reserved table, if the party is late after the 15min, the reservation will be cancelled.
Again, we thank you for booking your reservation with Gyu-Kaku and we look forward in seeing you soon!
Some meats and the salad were too salty. Please reduce sodium level
Happy Hour All Day Monday
BBQ Meats are $7 - $8 per dish. All the raw meat portion and the quality are good.
Always a great experience but had a server (Jennifer) who was absolutely amazing and went so above to make sure our dining experience was great excellent. All the staff at this location are lovely, can’t wait to come back
Food is amazing, great value and great service. Would highly recommend.
Really great place to eat! Service is on point, music and atmosphere was great!
Tasty, but little bit pricey. Good to go during happy hour.
Servers check the tables a few times, very good service, but they are too busy to be called.
Reliably good! Celebratory gathering for our young athlete's recent success. A protein feed and grilling fun for him, too!
Fast accommodation and cheerful staff! Parking is convenient. The restaurant was also clean and food is great as always!
Very good food.
It would be helpful if they allowed reservations for parties larger than 6. We had to make 2 separate reservations then request that the tables were close together. That caused a delay and staff had to scramble. We appreciated their effort but it would not have been an issue if they allowed reservations for larger parties.
It was much better than the last time I visited. I wish I was served with wet towel (oshibori) or more napkins.
Great restaurant to have a casual meal!
It was my birthday . We didn’t see a server for roughly 20minutes after we got sat. I am a manager of a restaurant and am not over exaggerating the time. The food is delicious and the price is great though. Just very poor unpersonalized service.
Super happy hour is the best - make sure to make a reso!!
I visit Gyu-Kaku regularly! Always great service and food, one of the best gems in the city. Whenever I have a friend from out of town I always suggest they check out this place
I went to the restaurant to make a reservation for 19 people 2 days before; however, the front desk waitress informed that they don't take reservation for a large group and asked us to go to downtown or Richmond location. We went to this place as we just work right beside the restaurant. We finally made couples reservations. When we went there, they finally could put us together but not informing us there is gratitude fee involved upfront. While we were having the lunch, we knew the restaurant was busy but we asked couples waitresses to help our group to just only take one picture, it took at least 20 mins and all waitresses saying they were busy and be right back to help us. If you will have a large group to go, please don't go to this location.
Nice place to hang out with friends
Always pretty nice to go during lunch hour. Less people, less noise, same great service and awesome food. Better than the DT location in terms of environment. Recently, the great promos are hard to resist.
We all loved everything, meats, veggies even the bill.
Food and service was excellent. We dined to celebrate our daughter ‘s birthday. The service was excellent as was the food. You’d be surprised how quickly you fill up. Recommend anyone who wants to have a food adventure!
Overall is pretty good except at the end we been rush to leave because customers is waiting.😞
Overall, enjoyable experience, good food as always and the service was very good.
Hopefully Vancouver will soon have a Japanese style yakiniku restaurant that actually has good quality meat to match its prices! At $140 for 2 adults and 2 young kids (barely ate anything), I expected much better quality at these prices. The hanger steak was mediocre, tenderloin was tough - (probably stewing beef!), and the kalbi short rib is boneless (wth???) There were plenty of staff (that were constantly yelling “welcome” in Japanese) but somehow very difficult to flag someone down to order food etc. I guess it’s easy to slack standards when you’re the only game in town, hopefully these guys will bring up their standards once Vancouver has a better yakiniku option!
Went at lunchtime and tried the Happy Hour set for 2 with sides of Tuna Tataki and Kara-age. Reliably good! Our server was a trainee, so we being regulars had to prompt him about some things like refilling tea and changing the grill -- haha!
mmm... I liked meats at Gyu-kaku... However, unfortunately the meat quality went downhill...
Also i couldn’t have Horumon which is my favorite meat!!!
beef tongue isn't really fresh
3rd time attending this location. However, this time, Service was rushed, even though we jad a reservation and having a 2 hour limit. the server brought the bill and visa machine same time as the dessert and asked for payment. We said not uet voma back when.we are done eating. In general the servixe was poor and i will probably not return.
Service was really good and food was delicious
This is my favorite restaurant since i lived in US. Unfortunately i had terrible service 2 days ago. The server didnt know how to serve drink properly. I had sapporo beer ,the glass beer has holder but the server hold the top of the glass with his fingers ! That is DISGUSTING ! He didnt even give a straw . He served drink and just walk away and he act didnt care to my table. He looks lazy to work. tipping in this restaurant is obligation so even I tip $1 doesnt deserve that server service quality !!! I would not come to this restaurant if that server doesnt improve his service quality .
Fun experience, but portion sizes were small for the price.
Great food as always.
Dining time at this location is two hours and we accidentally exceeded that time. The reservation needing our table had arrived and needed that specific table as that area was for large groups (we were only 2 patrons). The staff worked hard to find and clear a replacement table for us so we could finish our beer without rushing. At that time they were exceptionally kind and grateful for our moving and it was a favour for us! Simon is an excellent server and was very pleasant and engaging.
good food and a good time. my go-to place when I crave bbq meat!
Rice was undercooked and very soggy. The server kept forgetting to bring us rice, water and food. Had to ask quite a few times and he got flustered by us kept reminding him.
Food was great! We may have ordered too much haha. But half of the meat was served about 15-20 min after we finished the first half of the meat and got full from waiting, so that was unfortunate.
Happy hour is very good pricing, quick service, food is good quality. The rewards program has a decent rate of return as well. Best part is the grill venting doesn't leave any fumes on your clothes! Would definitely come back again.
Food is consistent with the downtown location. Bench seats near entrance are only divided by a screen, so you can hear your next seat neighbor discipline their kids. It’d be nice if there’s more privacy and have the table/seats separated
Service was very slow for 1 person in our party. He got his food 1h later
Great food and attentive service. The experience was fun for the whole family.
