First time going to a Japanese BBQ - it was really fun to try out. Food was really good. Heavy on the meat but there are vegetarian options as well. Easy to order. We had bibimbap, takoyaki, rice, gyoza, butter and cheese corn, and beef, pork and zucchini for BBQing - one order each. Couldn’t finish it between 2 women but leftovers are always great. $50 but because we went on a Monday - all day happy hour - everything was cheaper.

It was second time to visit Gyukaku.
Last time, we had a great meal with HH price. Even low price, quality was good. So my son wanted to have his birthday dinner at Gyukaku.

This time, drink OK, server GOOD, but MEAT,,, WHAT HAPPENED???
Meat smelled bad. At first, I didn't say anything to my husband. But I carefully asked my husband and he said he also thought meat quality was bad.
Meat smelled bad and too much marinade sauce on it.

I like many kinds of drink selection there. And my family loves BBQ Sukiyaki Bibimbap.
I hope that it was just something wrong this time.

New covid practices implemented so the experience is understandably different. We went during dinner (not happy hour) and the menu was very limited. Disappointed the bibimbap is not being served in the stone bowl. That’s my favourite item on the menu so it was not worth it especially since the portion seemed smaller and also was not hot. Other bbq food is still good. Staff was friendly but due to limited numbers of staff you don’t really get checked on as much. This was the first restaurant I wanted to go to once restaurants started opening up so I was a little disappointed but understand that this is the new normal. We will be back but we will just adjust what we order or maybe only come during happy hour.

First time at Gyu-Kaku after they re-opened under their new COVID-19 rules. Food is still great, we ordered the special Kansha set meal. Dipping sauces are provided in little takeout containers instead of bottles on the table, but was enough for us. Ishiyaki bebimbap was mixed in the kitchen rather than at the table, then served on a plate, so unfortunately had no crispy bits. With fewer tables to look after, the servers are even more responsive and efficient. Atmosphere suffers a bit, seems less energetic, but felt safe!

Our server this Saturday afternoon was a bit overworked, so the table and floor needed a wipe, one item was missing/late, and we had to prompt for tea refills and a grill change, but our food was reliably good.

Came to meet with a gf. We got there in time for happy hour (2pm-5pm), where they have a happy hour menu with items priced from $3-$5. The Toro Beef and Umakara rib eye were our favourites. Nicely marinated, the beef had lots of flavour, making the dipping sauces (3 kinds) almost unnecessary. Our bill came to ~ $40 including taxes, for the both of us (~ $19 each before tax) ...but we were stuffed! I really liked the fact that the grills were practically smokeless and that my clothes didn't smell of BBQ meats when I got home!

Fun, good value, good food. Major issue!!! They quit using frozen mugs for the draft Sapporo beer - this a major offence in my book. Salty BBQ meat with a frozen mug draft Sapporo such that the top of the beer had ice crystals and the layer just beneth was rolling, partly frozen - that is one of life's simple pleasures - in my opinion. A pairing that is a 10 out of 10! I will come back, but not as enthusiastically :)

I’ve only been to this location a handful of times, but this location by far has the best service. They were very attentive and very friendly! I usually have to wave down a waiter at other locations but before I could even think about waving one down, one of them would come by. I will say that if you don’t like a place with louder music, you probably wouldn’t like this location — but i think that the music added to the ambience (especially since it was music that I already listen to!)

4 of us went and ordered a sharing platter for 4 people. Was surprised the amount of food that came and kept coming. Loads left over not that it wasn’t nice but just because we was so full
Loads of variety and we tried lots of cuts of meat that we would normally eat, all delicious.

Only downside the table was absolutely full with dishes each time we made space more food came

Our server was the most attentive I’ve ever had at any BBQ restaurant. He changed the grill top 3 times - basically whenever it became charred, so our food wouldn’t burn. Super friendly, amazing service.

The food was great and we didn’t wait long to get it. My only concern was the waiter standing by us with the card machine waiting for us to pay as we were STILL cooking our smores/eating our dessert. I found that rude and unprofessional. He didn’t leave even when he saw us in the process of still eating and stood there until we paid. Food was great, waitor was rude. He couldn’t have waited till we finished our food to let us pay. Smh.

We had our anniversary dinner here on Monday December 9th.
They seemed to have no record of our reservation through Open Table, but I showed them my email confirmation and they seated us right away.
The service was fast, efficient and friendly.
The food was fresh and delicious!
We will most definitely be back!
