Overall was a pleasant experience. Can be difficult to order food for the all you can eat. Might consider using an electronic ordering system to avoid over-ordering or confusion.

The tables are too close to each other , you can hear everything from other tables , especially the ones that are separated with something in the middle. I would like to see more restaurant style not just a place to eat .

I love the variety of meats and foods. Best time to go is when they have happy hour. Monday is all day happy hour! I always make a reservation on Mondays because it gets really busy and the wait can be an hour long.

I always love bring my wife to this place because it truly makes her happy and content and I enjoy myself. I was extremely satisfied especially because they honored my reservation and my special request, making my wife’s birthday extra special. I would always recommend this restaurant! Not only do they have the best service and such a peaceful and relaxing ambiance, but the food is more than excellent and incredibly delicious!

This is a fun restaurant with quality, tasty food. The only issue I have, and the reason for 3 stars for ambiance, is the club music playing. It's too loud and thumping. It's fine for dancing, but not to have playing over dinner. After all, one dines with a group of people one wishes to have a conversation with.

Reservations are highly recommended at Gyu-Kaku as this place is very popular. Our waiter Avonte was amazing and frequently checked on our table making sure we were fully accommodated. The menu was recently updated and far more robust than it once was and the food was soo delicious. Will definitely be back again!

We really enjoyed our lunch here with the kiddos! Great service, happy hour/brunch prices were very reasonable. The whole bbq’ing at the table seemed to be a tad more “children” friendly and encouraging than other bbq places we goto. Will absolutely be back.

We have gone to this specific resturant a couple times. This past one was terrible, took 35 minutes to bring out “uncooked meat”, food did not look fresh, we didn’t enjoy our food, the waiters kept changing and wouldn’t come around. I will not go back again.

Went for dineLA week. The value was good. The food was quite tasty. It was plenty of food to satisfy the two of us. We especially enjoyed the mushrooms. I look forward to visiting again in the future when it is not dineLA week. It seems that you can find good values at any time. One highly recommended for anybody who likes this sort of food meaning cooking it yourself. Which I think is fun.

I've gone to many Gyu-Kaku locations and i have to say, the Burbank one is by far the worst. We saw our waiter once throughout our whole two hour meal. The hostesses were delivering food and had no idea what they were bringing us. When we asked, they just looked at us and walked away. Extremely rude. We had a party of 5 and they put us at a booth that sat 4. And gave our 5th person a broken and uncomfortable, random chair at the end of our table. You could tell that chair was not supposed to be there, because there was barely any room for anyone to walk by. Will not be coming back to the Burbank location again.

We arrived about 10-15 minutes before our reservation time, and since it wasn’t too busy when we showed up we were seated quickly. The waitresses were all very attentive and polite. Food was brought out faster than we had expected, which of course was great. Overall, we had a very good time at Gyu-Kaku.

We made a reservation at a certain time and were seated about a half an hour after our reservation. It was kind of like what’s the point of making a reservation? I expected maybe 10 minute wait but 30 minutes was not good.

I like the food. I go often. BUT they have been booking to many reservations or allowing to many walk ins so EVERYTIME I make a reservation. They will make you wait 20 - 30 min to be seated. BUT if you are late by 10 min they will cancel your reservation. NOT FAIR

Fun Korean BBQ restaurant. You cook the food yourself on a BBQ in the center of your table. Lots of all you can eat options from very expensive to moderate. It was Thanksgiving and the restaurant didn't crowd people or rush you. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating.

Gyu Kaku is a great spot! You really have to be hungry to order special combos :) The plates with meats are small but trust me it will fill you up with all other yummy little plates they serve with it. They also have individual rice and noodle plates which are bigger and you can share it with everyone. It's my favorite Japanese BBQ place ever !
