Didn’t like being seated right next to two other tables of people and right in front of the entrance in a pandemic, we asked to move tables and the staff was kind and accommodating about it. The food and service was amazing!!! I booked the spot for my sisters birthday and they brought out ice cream at the end, very cute! First time going there and will definitely be back!

this is one of my favourite restaurants! the servers are always so kind and the food never disappoints. we always get the toro beef and chuck rib for something simple but flavourful, but if you prefer the more saucy meats, you can’t go wrong with the short rib and harami skirt steak. their harami in secret pot is a little bit on the expensive side ($32) but it’s really good if you don’t mind splurging a little - the meat is so tender and the sauce is great. will always go back

Had an amazing date night here. Love this place, great value, so much tasty food. The service here is good - friendly, fast, and very polite. We really enjoy the option to get individual dishes or a full meal plan - we typically do the meal and add an item or two. They have a great rewards program and it’s fun for everyone I’m the family, even the odd or stuffy family member.

Masks are required, which is great! But what’s the point of wearing a mask without covering your nose or mouth?? That’s what the host did!!!! Not acceptable at all! The host needs to COVER his face AND mouth which is required by law.

Thank you for letting us know of your concerns! We want to assure you that we comply with all government mandates very closely, including the mask law that went effect August 1st, the day after your visit. As of that date, we have been 100% compliant with employees in masks. We would love to have you visit again so that you can see our adherence to this new mandate and many other safety precautions we have in place to ensure our diner's and staff's safety and well being.

Amazing! First time here and I must say that was one of the best customer service I have ever received. Went for my 21st birthday and they treated me like family. I felt so special and they even gave me a birthday card with my actual age I turned. They paid attention and listened! The food was on another level of amazing. Cannot express enough how great of a birthday I had tonight. Thank you!

Good COVID protocols. Temp check at entrance. Ask for reso and masks when you enter. Staff have masks and gloves. Every other table blocked off. Felt safe and they did do have a sign saying they did a high end cleaning at some point.

Great set menu for returning back to business. 2 people. But could easily feed 3 comfortably. 2 of us were stuffed!!! Had the more expensive one but it felt worth it. Great service, timely. Food was very tasty. But it is up to you to cook it properly. We were chatting too much and some burnt. Veggies were good too. And the rice bowl was awesome. Bibimbap style so there are bits of yummy crunchy rice.

Got a special treat for bday celebration. Was very nice and unexpected.

We love bringing new people here! My aunt and uncle had a special 40th anniversary evening we happened to miss, they’re quite picky when it comes to food and we wanted them to experience something new. Additionally we had family in from out of town so we did a huge family dinner and everyone had a great time. It was quite a busy family day in the restaurant but this is one of our favourite places.

Outstanding group dinner with friends. We ordered a set menu for 8 ppl for $240 which was really a good price. There was excellent salads, appetizers and then an assortment of different meats for grilling. The service was excellent also - very affable waiter/waitresses and the manager was also very good. Overall, an extremely positive experience and we will definitely be going back.

We were one of only two parties of five for the entire time we were at the restaurant, and the restaurant had a larger table free all of that time. However, the staff member seating guests refused to give us (or then other group) that table all of that time, having chosen to keep it unused instead - inexplicably.

We hated it today. we go to gyu kaku regularly and we always loved the food and the service. but today it was terrible. to start off with the appetizers the “steamed” dumpling was cold it almost felt like raw. we were hungry and when it was pointed out by my fiancee that it MIGHT be raw it was all gone. my fiancee’s brother noticed how cold it is too. if we get sick tomorrow I think we know why. next is the salad it was okay then 20mins has elapsed we still got no meat to grill. they brought our sukiyaki bibimbap. our server was so nice to stir it and “scrape” the sides it was awkward looking at him stir and scrape our bibimbap in a regular ceramic bowl, we are all wondering what he was doing. as a regular in gyu kaku my fiancee then finally asked the waiter why it is served on a regular bowl and not the hot stone pot they usually come in. waiter responded they ran out and it is dirty still. taste was terrible,we might as well got plain rice.onion was raw.we were hungry so we ate some of it.40mins in and still waiting for the meat.we finally complained to their manager about it. he just said they are short of staff and it was busy. in our mind it is not an excuse for a sloppy service and food. at 8:45pm we finally got our veggies and meat. that is the only time they fired up the grill. we were excited to grill our meat but then after 30mins trying to cook our filet mignon cube it was still raw in the center and no sear at all. the grill was on but it is not hot enough to cook the food. manager offered us to be transferred to a table. it was so awkward transferring all our food to another table. again as a regular customer this by far the worst service I got and worst food I got from this restaurant. there are times that we felt like our server had forgotten us. I dont think we will be back anytime soon from the food and service today. highly disappointed. the only thing that tasted great was the water.
