Gyu-Kaku - Arlington, VA
We recently discovered Gyu-Kaku and are very delighted. It can be tough to get a table so plan ahead. The quality of the food, especially meats, is very good, and it is a fun experience to cook by the table. Definitely one of the higher quality restaurants around in Arlington.
The waitstaff were very helpful explaining the length of time to cook each meat. They were prompt with cleaning up dishes and delivering food and drinks.
My brother was visiting from Cali where they have a location and he always told me cane highly recommended. The food was not unlimited(all you can eat) considering normal Korean BBQ is unlimited meats as in Iron Age, Honey Pig, etc. had pretty much package and nice choices for the a la carte menu. Liked the s’mores and the calamari but the amount of meat for the packages were not substantial, even when you add more meat still was 2 pieces (the most) for a 7$ plate of meat. Had really great service but not your ideal Korean BBQ unlimited all you can eat spot.
Gyu-Kaku was excellent from start to finish. The staff was superb, and food was delicious. It is also a fun family experience, and we will certainly go back again.
Not a big fan of their garlic fried rice and spicy galbi soup. soft tofu soup was okay, but was more like kimchi soup. Meat were marinated little too much to my taste. Horumon was good. Shrimp shumai and tofu appetizer are not bad, mushroom medley was good but wish it was not marinated. Spinach garlic was good.
Second time eating at this restaurant but for my birthday this time. The food was just as good as last time, granted the value was not amazing but the quality clearly makes up for that. Our waitress was amazing that night.
I’ve been to Gyu Kaku in other cities, and it hasn’t disappoint me this time!! Love the food here, nice meat, nice dessert, nice rice and dumplings.. It’s a good place for friend reunion and celebration.
The staff, food and ambiance were great. I had a great time again at this place and would recommend it.
Great ambiance and delicious food! Manager and staff were very accommodating and made it a very authentic experience.
Fantastic food and great service. Absolutely recommend.
Service was awesome and friendly!! Was celebrating good times with family!!
Good quality of meet for BBQ.
A must try! Bring your whole family! Drinks are good 👍
Awesome food, great service, at a reasonable price.
Amazing food! The service was great and the menu was explained thoroughly. Glad to have a Korean BBQ spot nearby.
The food was delicious! Experience was fantastic!
Very nice staff. Especially Jane, she forgot one of our dishes but instantly apologized and gave us discount and free ice cream
Great service, food and experience! Definitely going back!
Great place for Gluten allergies! We could eat most everything and had no negative reaction (due to cross-contamination). Our waitress was super nice and helpful in advising us what to stay away from.
Food was well seasoned and delicious as well, we definitely left full.
The only minor down-side, was that it got pretty hot in there especially since we are so close to the cooking source, so perhaps setting the AC a little higher would be the answer.
Food is good and the service is exceptional! A must visit! It has become one of my favorite place to eat! Keep up the good work!!
The staff are very friendly and very helpful, and they deliver our orders, which were added during our meal, promptly. The place is not too noisy, and the ventilation is well that there is not much of a left-over smell on clothes after the meal. I highly recommend this place.
19th Bday celebration
This was one of our faves in Japan and while a bit different that those experiences, was still great food/fun time!
Great food at a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend it for anyone who loves a similar type of restaurant.
We had a reservation for 4 pax. When we arrived restautant hostess showed us some notice on the desk which is we had to wait for fourth person. We told he is on the way just 5 min. they did not accept( if we make biggest reservation its make sense i can understand but eventually we were gonna sit for 4 pax table because we were already 3) other issue was id for the drink, I told them i am a turist i did not bring my passport i had an International Citizen Id ( if i can use my homecountry driver license in Usa without passport, you guys had to accept as well) anyway manager gave us a chance.
Staff was polite and doing bespoke service. They need little bit more training about meats. On the other hand almost all meat marinated same style with sasami and sweety taste. I think should be different herbs and spices and not all sasamis.
Thank you we really enjoyed i had to give this feedbacks because its my occupational illness.
first time here and it was great, we ordered a bit of everything and it was all tasty
Beef tongue is a must-have, reservation is needed to avoid waiting
Decent food, good service. Experience ruined because I wasn’t “allowed” to take the remainder of my uneaten cake (I had 2 bites) home. It went against their policy. Keep your cake. We won’t return
The service and food are very good
This was one of the most delightful dining experiences I’ve had in a long while. The food was delicious, and the service was exceptional. The two of us shared one of the BBQ combos, and it was great. I will definitely be returning.
Nice vibe, & very busy
Great experience. Only negative was it felt like I was being watched while I ate. I think it was just the table staff trying to be attentive and clear the table.
Outstanding everything-food, service, value and experience. I’m coming back for more of it all.
Interesting place where you grill your food. Meet excellent.
However grilling time for different types of meet and veggie is different. Waiters just tell you this 45 sec each side. This 3 mins. This... why not to prepare a sheet with ordered items and recommended grilling time?
We had a great time with delicious food. Would be happy to come back again.
Polite and professional staff.
The service is outstanding and the food quality is very good.
We loved it. Great recommendations and service. Food was delicious. Will be back.
Good for groups and make sure to go hungry... so much food!
Nice and friendly place, the food was great but the wine list does not even mention the wine name... just house chardonnay, house pinot noir, it would be nice to know what one is ordering.
It was fantastic. I would take dates here. I’d have an anniversary dinner here. Hell the happy hour is awesome. Super cheap yet strong drinks. This is my new place to go.
