Unfortunately, while I have loved my experiences at Gyu-Kaku in the past, this one fell WAY short. Gyu-Kaku offers Japanese BBQ where you grill food yourself at the table. They have preset menu options that make the decision making process easier. Our meal had multiple courses (salad, miso soup, edamame, appetizer, rice, meat and dessert). I am completely baffled how THREE of those did not show up until after our main course and not until WE mentioned it was missing. Not only was this unacceptable, but there was a complete lack of ownership of the mistake. Our waiter did not take immediate action to remedy, just continued to take his time. We had to ask them to take it off our bill, they did not offer. This place specializes in its course-style eating, and the ball was completely dropped.

Unfortunately, despite how much I like the cuisine here, it might be awhile until I come back. This trip left me with a bad taste in my mouth.

We always enjoy lunch at Gyu Kaku. The only complaint is that hot tea is not always available due to an ongoing kitchen equipment problem. Come on G.K. You can do better!

Did not care much for what we had - noodles with chicken, as it had no chicken or it seemed ground chicken. However, we thought it was interesting to, next time, try the grill to cook ourselves. Portions are way too small!

Food was great as usual, however this is actually the first time service was a little lacking. From the didn’t want to be here hostess to the waiter that was not thrilled to be here. I get that it’s a holiday but we have always had excellent service

The food, as always, was amazing. The service was sub par. Servers treated out table like a chore and would disappear for 20 minutes at a time. If the service here wasn’t consistently awful, I would dine here more often.

We have visited this restaurant several times and are never disappointed. This time, we had Japanese friends visiting from out of town. They truly enjoyed it. The quality and quantity of good is great. And, the prices are quite reasonable for what you get. We’ll be back.

Menu changed just today.
Still a great deal for weekday lunch.
The lunch meat set now has beef rib, which was good except for the grizzle.
The hot tea machine hasn't worked at the Addison location since the spring.
The management really needs to correct that.

Love their supreme all you can eat items! Everything you possibly want is on there! The service is not as good as we expected, slow to pickup dirty plates and table often run out of space, from time to time it was hard to find out server etc.

The restaurant has changed in the last 2 years. Service is no longer very good. The prices have gone up, and the happy hour is reduced.

The food was great as always. We have 4 in our group and the server was awesome. It did seem like they were slowing us down. The food was coming out fast in the beginning but when we started re ordering meat it slowed down substantially. The restaurant was not crowded st this time. All In all it was great. We always enjoy coming here.

I was so excited to find a yaniniku place! We don’t have one in the central Arkansas area, so this was a real treat for us! Our server, An, was wonderful and helped us pick out things. The rest of the staff would also check in if we looked confused. Next time we come to Dallas we’ll be visiting again!!

Higher quality and more option than Gen Korean BBQ. We ordered the meat lovers fixed dinner. It was nice to NOT have to choose the meats.
Only one of the meats was substandard. I believe it was a skirt steak which if not cut properly can be very chewy. Several of the meats were crave-able.
I like that it wasn’t a giant restaurant. My server never got lost. Beer by the pitcher is a nice option. I really enjoyed the three sauces to dip my meat into; I am not sure which one was my favorite.

Eating at Gyu-Kaku was so much fun. We had a table of four which was perfect for all of us being able to reach the grill in the middle of the table. We shared the Samurai and it was PLENTY of food for all of us. We enjoyed trying all the different BBQ options that came with this meal since it was our first time at a Japanese BBQ restaurant. Our server was Michael and he was very attentive and helpful with teaching us how to grill our food. We will be back!
