This was our 2nd time coming here and I understand they get busy but we waited a long time for our food and then we didn't receive something we ordered. We had waited so long that we decided to just forget it and not ask for it.

We ordered the chef’s favorite for $95 from the BBQ courses for 2, which included soup, salad, bibimbap, kimchi, gyu-sushi & a variety of meat & 4 shrimps. The food was good but the portions were very small, each dish contained only 6 small pcs. for each meat, and only 4 pcs. of shrimp. For $95 plus drinks which came to a total of $150, I was still hungry after eating, it was not a good value at all!

Once a while we would come here for great Happy Hour, and this time we found that theHH cutoff time moved up to 5 pm from 6 pm! Luckily we sat down at 4:30 pm, but we waited for good 20 minutes to get chance to order, and the waitress coldly told us “Now is the Last Call!” OK, I had enough time to look at the shorter and much expensive menu, we ordered everything we wanted right before 5 pm:(
Then the food came, for some reason, the beef wasn’t as good as as before, we have tried different locations and thought the midtown location was the best, sadly not anymore.

First time trying Japanese BBQ. Overall a great experience, cute place for a date. It can get a little too hot around the table because of the fire which is expected.

The food was great, we ordered a few different options; meat, chicken, and seafood. Highly recommend for anyone looking to do something different.

Large Threatening sign at checkin says your reservation is toast if you’re more than 10 min late. Waiter greets the table by admonishing thst you have 1 hr 45 min to enjoy dinner. Been going for years and always enjoyed it but what kind of arrogance causes management to taunt their guests twice before starting their dinner?

It seems that taste of meats has deteriorated and the volume of foods such as rice and kimuchi has decreased if I compare with pre-COVID. I want “horumon” comes back to the menu soon.

We were in vacation in NYC AND visited Gyu-Kaku midtown on a Saturday eve with our 12 and 16 yo sons. We had to wait almost 40 min for our table though we had a reservation. It was worth the wait. We selected the combination meal for (4) for $160. The selection of starters and compliments were great but the meats-they were amazing. So fun to grill your own. Our sons had a great time doing the cooking . I am sure this is a place they will not forget. This is a great not to miss venue for a special night out for any group. We will definitely dine again if we encounter another in our travels.

We had to wait at least 20 mins before we got seated and 20 mins or so after we placed our order to get the meat to cook. But the meat was really fresh and tasty. And felt safe seated with the booth separation. Would go back again.
