Great food, amazing COVID-19 procedures, great service, and it was actually not too loud which was great as I could easily have conversations with my guests for my birthday. Love this restaurant, will go back soon!

Good spot to bring a group. Went during happy hour and everyone ordered the lunch combo (rice, salad/soup + 2/3 meats of your choice). Affordable, delicious and overall a good time.

Gyu-Kaku never fails to impress. It is one of our main go-to restaurants in Vancouver. Some of the selections have been dropped for the COVID-19 era (I miss you deep fried bacon pieces) but solid selections remain.

The service here is always top notch - fast, friendly, and focused.

We couldn't visit Japan this fall but this got us a little closer.

Took my father out for a birthday dinner and ordered the premium meat lovers. We both really enjoyed the food as well as the environment and service. Would definitely come back again.

Old customers of Gyu Kaku chain. Service mediocre. Slow, had to “convince” waiter that we were in need if a grill change, he first wanted to argue and said “it’s normal for the grill to become burnt”. Appetizers brought only mid way during the meal. Calgary location MUCH better.

Overall it was good. We have been before. But the service was below expectations this time. Had to remind them of our drink order - through a random staff member. Our Server seemed to busy with other tables. We seemed like we were not being really taken care of.

The service was amazing. Claire, our server was attentive and super sweet. My father in law shared with her that it was a special day for us, and she brought us two drinks on the house. Totally unexpected!

Delicious and great quality food, if you don’t mind grilling your own meats. Prompt, efficient and friendly service staff. Perfect place to hangout with friends/families and grill your own BBQ.

I went to Gyukaku for the first time 2 weeks ago, since then, I’ve been 3 times already. It’s an amazing place, the atmosphere is great, very authentic Japanese restaurant. The staff is friendly and very efficient. The food is delicious and the place seems very safe as they are taking covid19 seriously with some great measures such as temperature check, hand sanitizer dispensers and tables far from each other. I won’t stop going there !!
