Our favorite restaurant in the city! Will always come here for special occasions, or just a friday night. We absolutely love Gyu Kaku and cannot wait to come back once COVID restrictions are lifted.

We got the chef’s favorite meal for 2 ppl and everything was delicious. We went home and realized they never gave us our gyu-sushi :(

Also miss how the meals before used to include either ice cream or s’mores. But otherwise, always consistent and delicious.

Excellent service and super speedy ! We got appetizer brought to us under 5 min of ordering. food was absolutely delicious! Marinated perfect. I would only hope they could give more kimchi and lower the price from 6 dollars if someone wants extra.

Twas my husbands birthday, and we have a 10 month old baby, they gave us a corner table that is very convenient for us and our baby. Food was delicious and service was outstanding. Will definitely come back to this place. The only downside is parking but otherwise all good

Everytime we book on OpenTable we get the same table by the bar that gets a lot of foot traffic. The grill on the table was very shotty and kept turning off on us so they should get that fixed. Food was okay and tasty but overpriced for what it is. The server was supposed to replace our grill that had burnt pieces all over it but he forgot so we had to flag him down again. We ordered a Coke Zero that had no flavour and tasted like water, but the server was able to get another type of soft drink for me. They are very friendly though so we liked that and greeted us right away. They were quite busy so I would give them another try in the future. Overall it was not as good as Gyu-Kaku that I've had in other cities but we will be back.

we went for a 4:45 sitting, were 15 minutes late getting seated , then finally when seated they told us we had to be out in 90 minutes from our reservation time. They had no Sake to offer, no beer totally out of all! who runs a resturant like this? food was not cut up to cook just big slab on plates so we have to ask for knife to cut it all up! Very disappointing! we have been there many times before and were very pleased. This week they were totally disorganized and almost rude? Where is old manager they sure need him!

food portion is about2/3 as before covid. Beef tongue has kinda badsmell and cutting is awful. I really wondering why the shap has triangle and some even broken to pieces. Wagyu short rib is good. Service is good but feel like the server is kind of pushing us for order. She saw us just scanned the qr code and asked can we order. Both service and food are worse than calgary Vancouver and Orlando.

We had a great night out dinner today. Freezing out. We arrived earlier than our reserved time and were welcomed generously. After our temperatures were checked, we were ushered to our seat. We loved where we were seated. We weren’t rushed throughout our dining experience. Our bbq combo were delish and filling. Cocktails surely hit the spot. Special shoutout to our server, May! She was very accommodating, informative and attentive. Thanks to her and the entire staff of Gyu-Kaku, Edmonton for the hospitality! Take care, everyone!

As a lifelong Calgarian, I recently had an opportunity to try out a mirrored restaurant up north on Highway 2. As much as I want to say the Calgary location was better, it is hard for me to say, the Edmonton location proved otherwise. From the top down.

Both were very good, however, all the little things made this location better. The server was more friendly, recommended better selections, more attentive. The food was the same of course, however, all those little things made a great difference.

The recommended garlic noodles was served in a hot pot and smelled and tasted great. However, it is best to eat it while it is hot on the table. It gets a little sticky once its cooled down.

I also ordered an assortment of beef dishes and a side of veggies. They serve each order with 3 different sauces and my favorite is the spicy tangy sauce. Even though the dishes come typically pre-seasoned, the extra sauce is nice for dipping. They aren't overly strong, just enough flavor.

The atmosphere in this location feels more open and not as crowded. They have spaced everything out nicely with how 2020 has been going on right now. They value the safety of everyone and you will need a reservation.

It is because of this restaurant and their staff (mostly the staff!) that I have enjoyed my business trips north.

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.
