Always a great time here !!! Huntington and Pasadena are the best locations. Tustin is too loud and very bad service and I tried multiple times thinking maybe just a bad night.

We asked not to be seated by the door as it was very cold and moved but this request was ignored.

It appears that a single serving became smaller than before during a happy hour. Also the price during a happy hour became higher. Including tip and tax, to be full for a couple, expect to pay $100 during a happy hour including 1 order of a beer.
As for the qualify of meat, seafood and veggies, over all it’s ok. Shrimp was super salty.
Service is nice. Staffs are attentive and friendly.
Umami scallion that came with tongue was good. They used to have Umami rice that had those scallions on a bowl of while rice but they no longer have it. That was very good and addictive.

Food and service were good. One regret thing is that the restroom area was full of tobacco smoke. I hate that smell.

Highly recommend! Staff is friendly and welcoming! Food was delicious! We got the Ninja all inclusive for 3 even though we were 4 and garlic noodles. Plenty of food!!! The fire pit to cook your meal made for a fun experience! Value is excellent! Overall is a must go to.

It was super nice to catch up with my girlfriend but we started noticing that we were being watched on getting out. It was uncomfortable. They kept stopping by for our check. Kept taking one plate at a time. Finally we were told it’s a two hour minimum and that they had a line out the door. It was extremely awkward. First of all we didn’t get sat for thirty minutes after our reservation. We never got our grill changed until 15 minutes before we were told our time is up. Our wine glass was in a champagne flute because they didn’t have wine glasses. Every time we needed a refill they asked us for our glass. Idk it wasn’t the best experience but it is what it is. It was 8pm and our time was up.

1. My luncheon partner really enjoyed the food + new experience with cooking your own food at the grill in the center of the table. Loved the salad dressing.
2. Multiple servers swapping in, and out, service was good but forgot rice that comes with luncheon. Had to ask for it twice, I think.
3. When arriving, rock music was extremely loud. They did turn it down eventually per our request but still too loud, difficult to hear when more crowded.
4. I ordered pork as one of my 2 lunch choices. Was very fatty making difficult to eat, not much meat. Also ordered salmon, $2 extra but it was really good.
5. Thought a little pricy for somewhat small quantities.
Overall it was enjoyable.

This is my absolute favorite restaurant. I’ve been coming here for a long time. This was my Birthday celebration with my family and my 6 year old grandson loved it!!! I always order the Hanger Steak, the spicy cucumbers, shrimp, assorted veggies, garlic fried rice and appetizers. Everything is delicious and the s’mores is a great way to end dinner!!

They were testing out a new way to order on the phones. And my order didn’t get put in, but thankfully we did have a server and. She was able to help put in the order. I think that the app might not work for such a busy restaurant. High volume of people and then too much activity on the WiFi slows it down and orders don’t make it To the kitchen.

My boyfriend took me to Gyu-Kaku for my birthday and we’re really impressed with their service and great food. We use to frequent the Cerritos location and stopped going due to lack of good service.

We had reservations at 2:45pm but were not seated (or noticed) after checking in until 3:20pm. Others that were either late or their entire party were not altogether were seated before we were.

Once seated, the food was great and so was the service. They were understaffed, but were exceptional after the whole getting seated debacle.

We went there for Mother’s Day celebration. We made the reservation two days in advance, and didn’t have to wait when it is our time to enter.
The food is decent as usual. We did wait a little bit longer for the food to come, but overall everything is great!

The plates weren’t cleared of the table like normally they do.. the music was extremely obnoxiously loud
The service was slow and spicy beef broth soup was terrible-
Our Gyu-Kaku points expired because they were close during the pandemic for nearly a year - I feel the should reinstate our points back because it was impossible to use them when Gyu-Kaku was closed for many months during pandemic 😡

The food is always sooo amazing! For some reason it was a bit slow coming out this time. I have been coming for 15 years. I do miss the music they use to play. The modern music they play feels miss matching to the nice datenight feel of the restaurant.
