Gyu-Kaku - Toronto
Traditionally called Yakiniku, this Japanese barbecue spot is known for their delicious, fresh (never frozen), high-quality meats!
Enjoy an ice cold beer as you grill your own meat. Happy Hours offer the best deals on food and drinks, so be sure to wind down and get the night started right with us.
Amazing happy hour menu - lots of delicious options - fantastic choice of cocktails mixed with soju / sake - overall a really good time! Kimchi was on point and s’mores to finish the meal was a fantastic conclusion!
Everything was awesome. My only complaints are that it is quite pricey for the portion size, and all the meats I ordered were on the tough side. I think it would be helpful if the amount of servers increased, and/or if there was a table bell of some sort for the tables that are a bit out of sight.
Our server was very kind and patient. The combo for two is definitely enough for two (girls at least). We ordered another chicken karaage and the two of us ended up with a food coma. We tried the beer cocktail, I think beer+ginger ale may be my new fav cocktail.
Lovely atmosphere, great quality meat choice and great staff. Gyu-kaku has becomes a staple place for our family hangout.
A bit pricey but ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS
Always love coming here, gives a pretty good authentic yakiniku experience, and for those who haven't had this type of food before they explain everything.
And of course the food is amazing. The variety of really good meats is always on point and they're always so tasty.
Yummy seasonal cocktails too
Very good and fun place to go with your family and friends :) I went there with my husband. There are family including a baby in front of us, and many young girls next to us. You may think that the place looks like Korean BBQ place except the price. It’s not. The beef is tender, chicken is soft and tasty, and veggies are fresh. If you care about the quality of food, I would recommend you to go there instead of Korean BBQ place. Don’t forget to get Gyukaku app!
Great food and great service with friendly staffs!
Quality meat, quality food overall and i have a wonderful time with my friend!
I have been coming here ever since they have open, you will walk out extremely happy and satisfied after your meal! It’s not great for one person to eat but it’s fantastic if you have two or more people!
Great food and fabulous service. Would definitely recommend.
Christmas get together with friends
Can get very busy on weekdays at noon so arrive a few minutes early to avoid a 45 mins wait or make reservations in advance. Lunch specials are a great value! Customer service is always great!
I had s great time. I've been following Gyu-Kaku on Instagram for a while and the food I ate was just as good as the photos made it seem. I was very happy.
Just love the food there!
Yakiniku style of dining is excellent if you want control over how soft or hard your meat is. What makes it even better in Gyu-Kaku is that you won’t reek of barbecue after eating. They have good ventilation and heating equipment. The fried chicken karaage and kalbi short rib are a must-have. Don’t forget to download the app to earn points while you’re enjoying your barbecue.
So much fun to cook at the table!
Reservation should be allowed from two people. Other wise a couple cannot enjoy a dinner at here.
Great food as always! Absolutely recommended!
service and food quality has gone down side comparing to its grand opening.
Great food and excellent customer service! However, the noise level gets too noisy but other than that everything was great!
many times asked get kid's cutlery set.didn't come.even kid's meal came.didn't bring cutlery set. my kid was waiting long time. poor restran service.
Food was fantastic and so was the service
Had a great meal with friends. Food and service are exceptionally customer service oriented. Service staff are easy going and kind. Highly recommended to other prospective.
Mon préféré à Toronto, j'y vais à chaque fois!!
Le riz Bipmap est délicieux et les viandes/légumes sont de super qualité!
Les serveurs/serveuses sont très soucieux de donner un bon service courtois et personnalisé!
Fabulous food. Great atmosphere. Some staff were amazing and friendly. Some not as friendly with a little bit of attitude. All in all fabulous food and would definitely return
Comida espectacular, el personal es muy atento, los calamares deliciosos y el New York y el Ribeye súper recomendable, pero lo mejor de todo son los noodles!!
It's very nice environment, you can talk and hear your friend(s)! Excellent, fresh food! Reasonable price! I recommend the place strongly!
Restaurant itself is nice, a little noisy but not terrible, grill gets nice and hot but the place is well AC'ed. The staff will even let you know the recommended cook times for each dish. However, our waiter seemed like he hated the job and was not very professional about it. That said we got our food, tasted great, and the rest of the staff was excellent.
Very nice restaurant!! Both foods and services are great!
I loved everything but they really rush you through the dinner even though we were there at 4:30.
This place never disappoints. It's been a regular lunch hangout for quite some time, but we've never been on a weekend AND IT WAS GREAT. Their "happy hour" menu offered exceptional options and fantastic taste, one pair ate for under $100 including drinks + taxes + tip. We will do this again in the near future!
Restaurant is clean and meat was delicious.
Just Rice was too hard and dry... other than that fair price and fun place for get together.
Food is good, great variation. Can grill or order premade dishes
Sapporo Beer is perfectly chilled and served in a chilled mug
Usually busy, so would recommend making reservations
My wife, son and I really enjoyed our dinner at Gyu- Kaku in Toronto. We were seated exactly at our reservation time. Drink and Happy Hour specials were going on all day. Our servers were prompt, friendly, and helped us order just the right amount of food. We had a great time grilling at the table. There are some vegetables, but basically you are there for meat. The vibe is exciting. It's a busy and hopping place. I highly recommend it!
The service is authentically energetic and helpful. There is nothing like sitting at a table with the barbecue in the middle and a ton of meat all around waiting to be cooked and devoured. Definitely a place to take friends and family to enjoy a special occasion. Our server was fantastic and kept our meal apace! A Great time. Be sure to download the Gyu-Kaku app and collect your points!!
Food was excellent! Will be back soon!
An enjoyable meal and experience, great for having a conversation over good food and not feeling rushed. Wait staff was attentive but inexperienced and not able to answer some basic questions. The veggie options (particularly broccoli ) did not impress us on the grill. But the meat selections, noodles - excellent.
The ventilation can be better. It seems little smokey and oily smells around the restaurant.
Overall the experience was good. In terms of customer service I found the Montreal location to be superior. They did not make us feel rushed by telling us there’s a two hour period. We came with a kid (6-yrs-old)so there’s no two hour eating experiences for us. The servers were more attentive in MTL. We didn’t have to hail them. However, it was bit too loud in Montreal (the music). A bit jarring at first. The music level at the Toronto location was much better. Food was good! The overall experience was good, close to excellent. I’ll definitely go back because overall, I love the place :).
