    Everything was so fantastic. The garlic noodles, harami skirt steak in secret pot (!!), shrimp ahijo, bistro hanger steak, takoyaki, and ice cream mochi all made me come... give a great review.

    Great service, food and atmosphere. Going there with friends is super fun but a bit pricey!

    it's always a delicious experience at Gyu-Kaku! And I so rarely get the chance to go on "Happy Hour, All Day Monday" that this was an extra treat. Always a fun time and great food.

    The food is fantastic! We ordered a meat set, and it was just an endless assortment of everything! Various meats, miso soup, different appetizers, and more! The meat was superb and varied. Everything was of very high quality, super fresh, etc. Great place! I recommend booking in advance through the app, as it's hard to get in.

    The food was amazing but the cleanliness of the restaurant could be better. The sauce bottles are always sticky and the tables were not cleaned well. I leaned on the table with leftover sauce residue and my clothes got dirtied as a result.

    Always a solid choice, though the restaurant itself was a bit tired and dirty. Needs a renovation. Also the cuts of meat weren’t as good as say 10 years ago.
