Gyu-Kaku - Honolulu, HI | Kapiolani
The waiter I had made the dinner extra special. Very personable, attentive, and caring towards us.
Was excited to enjoy some AYCE yakiniku.....but it was quite disappointing when they run out of most the good stuff! They give a time limit, and the food is coming out really slow too!! Then to top it off, our grill was only half working....literally!
#not worth the price if you run out lots of stuff
#slow service ever
Food is too salty. They didn't have any unseasoned meat. Some of dishes are too fatty.
One of the best meals. Out waiter was attentive, but at times it was slow.
Great food. Service needs work
Our waiter John really made my parents feel comfortable and explained the menu to them. Great service and awesome quality food. We will be back.
AWESOME! We love it there!
Good enough, I’d do it again
Happy hours are the best times. Love the seasonal menu offerings.
GREAT SERVICE, DID NOT SMELL LIKE BBQ. SERVERS WERE ON IT AND WE ATE LOTS WITH ALL YOU CAN EAT
They took us right in. It was packed but they took good care of our party.
Very good food and service was not bad although sometimes, the busyness of the restaurants keeps the servers on the move all the time and not so easy to call attention to. The place is not for quiet dates as the atmosphere is very lively and noise level is above normal. I would recommend Gyu Kaku for the excellent food, clean tables and seats and the convenience of making reservation online.
When your carnivore is calling, but your wallet is thinning, go to gyu-kaku to be satiated...nomnomnomnomnom!
Had to kill a couple cockroaches by our table. 😔
I absolutely loved the service and the quality of the food.
Fantastic food and excellent service. The only issue was I felt the restaurant was a little warm and you are cooking yourself so the flames make you even hotter.
We came here for all you can eat lunch which another Resturant told me over phone lasts till 4pm.
When we got there they said last call was 3pm so we couldnt order that. After the server spoke with the manager they allowed us to still do the a you can eat so YUMMY!
Two of us arrived at 4:30pm (4:45pm reservation). Hostess seated us right away although the 3rd person had not arrived yet (he arrived 5 minutes later). Orders taken right away (AYCE Seniors) and pitcher of beer delivered promptly! We were very happy that the special boneless harami pot was still available! Had that about 4 months ago - it is a keeper! Overall the food and service was great! We will be back - mahalo!
The food is still great but on our last 2 visits the service has been declining. Takes a while to order more meat when doing the all you can eat. That doesn’t seem fair when there is a time limit.
The tables are too close to each other and it can get loud when people are talking next to each other
Joe was our waiter and he was great! Service was quick and efficient by all employees. Food quality was also very good.
We had lunch for our first time at Gyukaku. The service, food and atmosphere was perfect.
We will be back again for certain.
Not the best time we have had there but still very good.
Great food, excellent service from all the wait staff
All the wait staff from joe to everyone even in the kitchen was outstanding.
Food quality is consistent and service was friendly but they did not refill my friend's tea. I had to ask that they switch us to another seating area - the first seats they gave us were near the front, behind the reception desk, and had very little ventilation, which felt hot and uncomfortable even without the burners on. From previous experience, I know that in that situation, once the cooking starts, it will become stifling and difficult to breathe. Please improve ventilation in all areas of the restaurant so you do not have this condition.
The hostess was very nice and promptly seated us.
nice place, with a neat concept & yummy food. it’s pricey though and you don’t get a whole lot for what you pay (especially vegetables) but was a cool experience
So delicious! I would definitely recommend going here! It's fun with friends or even a date night!
It was unpleasantly hot as the air conditioning was broken. The had zero fan to ease the heat which made a very uncomfortable experience.
No AC and portions were smaller than last time. Don’t know if we will be coming back
We all had great time
Hostess was amazing. Server ran miso soup to my table by accident, after serving it to us he came back and gave it to the table behind us. Unsanitary.
Some portions of dishes like the spinach and spicy cucumber were very small, not a good value. Service excellent and efficient.
Love it! The staff and food were amazing!
Great food and great time, great service by our server Nani and the rest of the staff. Will return again for sure.
There is so much selection even if you don’t want to eat meat
Made it for happy hour. What a bargain. Grandkids enjoyed cooking and serving. Service was wonderful.
Nami our waitress was awesome!!!
Really good, fresh cooked food (ordered from the non-grill menu this time) served by a very pleasant wait staff. Choice of music didn't feel appropriate.
