    Yummy food that came in a timely manner. The grills were kept clean and service was present but not too disruptive. Good deals on happy hour. My only issue was that we didn't really get water refills until the end of our visit. Friendly staff and decent price!

    I've visited twice and would come back. The "courses" (combos for groups) are fairly good value for the money. Drinks are tasty and cheap, I definitely recommend the sake-colada cocktail. Great to go with friends.

    We came back for a second time and were really happy with the service and food at the Toronto location. Just like before, the portions were generous and tasty. Our server was attentive and friendly. We drove from Oakville, but it was worth it. The Mississauga location was a disappointment in terms of service, food quality, and stingy portions. We'll stick to the Toronto location from now on and highly recommend it.

    We love Gyu-Kaku hence it is one of the few food apps we have on our phone. Until yesterday, we were very happy with the food and service. We ordered a lot, the four of us friends. The service was not perfect that night. Our salad was very delayed. There were orders made after the first order and after many follow ups, it finally arrived. Also, the New York Striploin tasted a little stale, like they were brought down from the freezer and then thawed. Disappointing night after many trips here. We are still gonna go but I hope it doesn’t happen again or we will have to find another like resto.

    We booked our reservation for Valentine’s Day at 8:45pm. As soon as we sat down we had last call (it does not tell us when last call was when we booked). We were not able to every thing we wanted to. Our server also didn’t bring us our drinks in time. We purchased the Valentine’s Day package. I don’t think this place was worth it for the price and the cuts of meats provided.

    I have been here so many times it’s a little embarrassing but I can’t help myself! Between the kind service to the amazing group deals, this place is both affordable and fun! We got the chef’s menu for two and it was more than enough food! Plus drinks are reasonable too. My sever Kaoru was kind, helpful, and apologetic for any slow service due to the volume of the restaurant - which we didn’t even notice that the kitchen was behind cause we had so much food! She is a great server !

    This restaurant surpassed our expectations. We weren't sure of what to expect when we came into the main dining area. There was only a few booths and benches and seats against the wall. However the ambiance was more than acceptable. The waitresses were very accommodating and helped us understand the menu and to choose the foods we would enjoy. The food selection was diverse and of excellent quality. It was fun BBQing our meal. When we proved to be a little slow with cooking the waitresses and the proprietors reached out to help us. My family and I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Service was a bit slow at the beginning but got better during the meal. We ordered a feast for 6 people + additional food for 2 other people and the food was delicious. We had some noise since we were sitting close to the kitchen entrance but nothing that would case a bigger trouble.

The food was delicious and fresh, coupled with the attentive and friendly service from our server, made our experience truly enjoyable. Overall, it was an excellent dining experience; worth the drive from Oakville. We look forward to returning. Highly recommended!
