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 !!

Come here quite a bit and service is always friendly and very good as well as the food. Not a fancy place at all - nice and casual, and remember you are going home smelling like bbq.

Good value over all for the food provided but the service could be much better. Further more the electric cooktop is mediocre at best a gas powered one or a stronger electric one would be preferred.
