    Really wonderful experience. The food was phenomenal, staff was friendly. In many places where all you can eat is offered, you feel like restaurants cut corners. That’s 100% not the case with them. I just wish they could get more staff so there will be more tables available.

    Not great. I’ll stick to the Boston location. Menu has Soju but they only sell sake. They ran out of shrimp at 830pm on a friday & instead of our server telling us, they tried to drop raw barbecue calamari off. Sorry, not the same as shrimp. The food all tasted the same and it took almost an hour to get our RAW meat. Not sure why this place was struggling. The customer capacity seems small due to the lack of space and there were probably 30 customers max in the building.

    They have recently opened in Burlington and it appeared they are not ready for prime time. Group of five of us had dinner. We ordered a BBQ course preplanned meal. They brought all the small plates at once and filled the table. We had no room to move and had to send things back to make room... Very rushed and disorganized. We also had trouble keeping our table at the right temp to cook the food. The food was good, but not sure what we were eating as it was dropped so fast with really no explanation. One thing we recognized and all liked was the pork belly.

    Very Nice but they need more staff, it was half empty but they couldn’t fill it due to lack of people. Great food and we had a good server but you can’t get in for weeks because of the staffing shortages.

    Great food and service. However no bar which means there is nowhere good to hang out while you wait for your table. Also they began closing up at 930 - our reservation was for 830. I recommend either (a) stop taking reservations earlier than 930 or (b) wait until guests leave before you begin the closing process. Nobody wants to rush through their meal or feel like you are waiting for us to leave.

    Staff was rushed trying to figure out seating and rolls of the various servers. You get the sense they ate trying to flip as many tables as they can. Need a wait area out of the doorway people are standing next to tables as you eat trying to get in. Door opens and you get blasted with outside air. Place is just too small for what they are trying to deliver. Definitely feels like a strip mall restaurant. Overall they can do better, seems like they ate still working out the kinks with the staff.

    Waitress was super helpful for our first time at Gya Kaku. There were 3 of us so we were initially thinking about getting the Ninja Course but wanted some other options. She helped us pick out just the right amount as well as providing recommendations to strike the perfect balance of food. Looking forward to the next visit!

    My wife and I was very disappointed with poor quality of the meat. Staff members were smiling, but actual serving was not efficient. We as well as other customers needed to wait for dishes for a long time.

    Great food and cool experience overall but no one was even available to check us in at the time of our reservation. Our apps and raw meat for cooking were arriving at the same time on a small table so cooked and raw food all so close together .. didn’t love that at all. Also would be awesome if they served regular liquor.
