    Service was lacking. Server was no where to be found when you sit in the back room. Quality of food had declined over the past few years; considering it is a franchise, the quality is not up to par with other Gyu kaku's. Washrooms were quite dirty. Damaged table and dining ware were being used to serve customers. I would visit other bbq restaurants around the city instead.

    Food was delicious, atmosphere is fun when going in a group. Would recommend the set menu for first-timers, but if I go back again, I would rather choose a-la-carte from the menu to focus on things I enjoy eating and not waste things that nobody wants to eat that come with the set menu.

    We had reservations for 7 and were seated within 10 min. They had a 2 hour wait for walkins so that was good. We got the meal value for 3 and took a lot of it home. The service was excellent as was the food.

    My recent visit to Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ left me disappointed. the inflated prices and lackluster food failed to impress. While the menu offered variety, the high prices didn’t match the mediocre quality and small portions. Additionally, the dirty, milky and unhygienic ice further disappointed. Lastly, Discovering that Gyu-Kaku manipulated its online reviews with incentives for positive ratings was the final straw. In summary, Gyu-Kaku may seem like a top dining spot, but it falls short in both value and integrity. I urge diners to seek out establishments that prioritize authenticity over deceptive practices.

    The overall experience was great. Service was fantastic. The food was great for those who enjoy meat (very fresh). My husband and I are on restricted diets for health reasons, so a place like this, for us, is a once in a blue moon thing. My son goes frequently with friends and this is one of their favourite places. Young demographic, great music (a little too noisy for us mid-aged people, but I’m sure younger crowds appreciate it).

    Generally love Gyu Kaku. The servers are great and food is tasty. Was disappointed to go on a Saturday to be told that their brunch special wasn’t available despite it being clearly printed on the posters in their entrance that it’s available weekends. Not worth the price but would return Monday to Friday.

    They were behind over half hour and that was with a reservation. I don't think I've had to wait over 1/2 in maybe 10 or more years so I was a bit surprised. We almost left, but stuck it out. Normally with a reservation at any of the other 100 restaurants I've visited in the last few years, you wait a few moments and then they seat you. I would suggest they manage their reservation windows more appropriately. The meal however was excellent and our server was very kind, cheery and excellent to deal with.

    Great combo meals and service was really great. One of the bowls / plate trays though had really thick, old grease underneath that was not washed properly. It had hardened that one could scrape it off. Other than that, all good and would come back.

    Khoa, our server, was amazing. Made the experience really great. Some of us were new to the restaurant and he made sure we were directed accordingly. It was a little bit busy, and we did not mind the slow service, because his personality made up for it. Food was also very good. We would definitely consider coming back!
