Best

We enjoyed the happy hour. Good food and generous price. I will recommend to my friends. Pros: Food, Price

Worst

The only reason to dine here rather than any number of better and cheaper restaurants in Koreatown is (a) because it's closer to home if you live in West LA, or (b) if you dig a "...

Terrific for a date 3/26/2009

I'd been here once before for a party, so when I was looking for a place for a fancy date with my boyfriend, we went here. We chose a meal for two off the menu and there was so much food it filled up the boyfriend, who is a big guy with a huge appetite. This has become our default restaurant for dates and we go there any chance we get. It's a little pricey, but reasonable given the amount of food you get. Pros: Food, service Cons: noise more

Dinner with Friends? Go Out & Cook It Yourself! 1/7/2009

The Topanga Canyon (Woodland Hills) location is one of the few that actually offers an unlimited menu in addition to the regular menu! I believe the manager told us that it's one of three locations in Southern California that offers the unlimited menu. The have changed the ""rules"" that apply to the unlimited menu since they first started offering it, but the guidelines are still reasonable. We normally get the Our favorite things there are the Harami Miso beef and the Kurobota sausages. Yes, it's not ""real"" Korean food...but I never said it was supposed to be authentic. For something that is fusion Korean-Japanese, it's not all bad. Pros: Harami Miso beef, Kurobota (sp?) sausages Cons: Making your own dinner, no more all-you-can-eat appy bar more

Worst Korean food served by a Japanese restaurant in LA. 5/7/2008

Encouraged by all the fanfares in the media about Gyu-Kaku, I decided to check one out in Los Angeles. We were a group of 8, and was seated right across from the Men's rest room, that was a bummer. But with enthusiasm, we ordered beef, salmon, shrimp, vegies, and so on. Many knows that almost all of the foods served in Gyu-Kaku are of Korean cuisine, and not Japanese. But that misrepresentation is perfectly OK as long as the food tast good. To everyone's disappointment, the food was completely ""Americanized"" for mass consumption by the locals (who rated the food as excellent). Every meat and seafood pieces were heavily marinated in soy sauce and way too much sugar, Even the Bibimba tasted the same- nothing like the real one with a zing of hot pepper sauce. If you truly loved the Korean BBQ, skip Gyu-Kaku and look for many excellent eateries around the city. Pros: Good service Cons: Char coal did not light properly for the first 30 minutes. more

had better. 5/5/2008

okay this is a big chain place for bbq. that doesn't mean it is the best. i've been to two locations. wla and san fernando. had to wait twice. ambiance is good. service is good too. pricing might be a little high. but i just can't get over the way they cut their meat! they are all so uneven! sometimes i get a chunk and sometimes i can't even pick them up with my chopsticks! i like the meat simple. they are too sauced up to figure out the quality of the meat. Pros: fun place to go once in a while Cons: pricing and the over crowded tables more

i love LOVE Gyu- kaku 11/20/2007

japanese bbq at it's best. Plus its an extra ""fun""bonus that you cook your own food. Everything always tasted so fresh and is always promptly. Staples are avocado and ahi salad app., garlic shrimp, miso steak, ahi tuna, and the signature rice....you can't go wrong! Pros: fresh food, great menu. try the signature rice dishes! Cons: entrance is tiny so if there is a wait, you stand outside more

Great Food and Fun for everyone! 4/1/2007

We looked forward to this experience based upon other reviews and web info and we weren't disappointed! Gyu-Kaku is a cute restaurant offering a great variety of items to grill on your own table top grill. We tried a variety of beef items with different marinades, garlic shrimp, vegetables and sukiyake style rice. The quality was great, grilling was fun and we really enjoyed the whole experience. Service was prompt and very helpful with provided suggestions and recommendations. I wish we had saved room for the S'Mores dessert. I wish we had one of the restaurants at home! Give it a try, you won't be dissapointed. Pros: Quality, Service, Variety, Fun! Cons: Table was a little small for all the dishes.. more

Great food and good fun 2/15/2007

Gyu-kaku is a favorite among my group of friends. The food is excellent, very well prepared, and the do-it-yourself factor means you can cook the food however you like it. They have excellent, large salads, good soups, and a variety of quality beef, chicken, seafood and vegetable dishes. The key to this place is in the sauces they use to marinate the tender meats they prepare for you. Pros: Great food, lots of fun, inexpensive Cons: Slow service for large groups, noisy, can take a while to get seated more

Fantastic DIY meal! 11/27/2006

This do-it-yourself Japanese grill is above and beyond the favorite restaurant in my friend circles. Attentive service, fair portions for the price. One serving of their most popular Hirami Miso beef is about $8 and you'll still have room for some seafood or veggies. Pros: fun and different, excellent flavors, attentive service Cons: small waiting area, long wait times more
