Gyu-Kaku - Burbank, CA
Traditionally called Yakiniku, this Japanese barbecue spot is known for their delicious, fresh (never frozen), high-quality meats!
Enjoy an ice cold beer as you grill your own meat. Happy Hours offer the best deals on food and drinks, so be sure to wind down and get the night started right with us.
630 reservation for 3 and some Parties walked in and were seated ahead of us. We were not seated until 705.
This location is always crowded. I wish they could expand or even open another location in downtown Burbank. I always order a la carte and find that to be the best experience and value.
Would be an all around 5 star review but the first meat they brought us was FROZEN?! I couldn't believe what I was seeing! My foodie boyfriend mentioned it to our Server, Victoria, at the end of the meal and she graciously offered us another meat but we were full and that wasn't the point. Shame on the man who presented us unseasoned meat straight from the freezer. The meats don't come out all at one time. Pop it in the microwave if it's going to taste bad anyway. At least it won't take away from the experience by being the very first grill item we set out to cook ourselves. Everything else was very delicious and Victoria was supportive of our sake fueled brunch experience in every way she could be.
location is great! Service is excellent! Food is not as good as the other location.
Great customer service and friendly service.
Always welcoming. Always delicious!
Elijah is always great
This was very fun dining experience! The food was amazing! And our server was very helpful!
The flame kept going out from our grill, but it wasn’t a big deal.
The food was amazingly good, even if I did cook it myself, but that was the fun part. The menu is a bit confusing but offers something for everyone. I would definitely go back again.
Good experience. I’m glad I made a reservation ahead of time because it was so busy and a lot of walk ins. Good happy hour! We all enjoyed it before New Years..
The food is incredible and it’s fun cooking everything to your own liking. The staff is amazing, attentive, and friendly!
Went there Christmas Eve - there were very busy - our server was lovely! Food is always great and can’t compete for the prices. Thank you for a great evening!
They changed the menu and its more expensive and the meat isnt very good. The kids meal now includes edamame , corn & tomatoes?? Ridiculous. never again
Great Meal Great Service
The waitresses were on point even if it was a busy night. A bit overpriced, but the food was great.
My server was amazing, do everything to keep him 👍
I always love this place, this time not sure what change but we got to our table and waiting approximately 15 to 20 minutes before I got up and the lady at the front if she could send are server since no one has shown up. The lady in the front was very friendly, outside of that everything was great
Server was nice and helpful. The ambient was very calm. The service in the kitchen is very good as well, did not have to wait long for my food.
Grabbed dinner with a friend wanted to try this location, I have been to the Sherman oaks one and loved it, overall it was good service and good food but not the same as the first time I’ve tried it (:
Birthday with 8 high school boys. They had fun cooking for each other
Good, inexpensive "Japanese" BBQ. There is something for everyone.
Me and my wife went here for our anniversary and loved it. The food is amazing and we had great service. Will definitely be going back again!
Reserved birthday occasion, not sure if I had to specify also in writing but there was no acknowledgement for the occasion also made reservations at 8:30 and weren’t seated until about 9 because patrons at our table decided to hang out an extra 30 minutes before or after paying and staff informed us they couldn’t do anything about it (rightfully so) does not discount the disappointment the ambience wasn’t the greatest sitting in the back in view of kitchen but that’s is just personal taste the staff that waited on our table was FANTASTIC not sure I would recommend it come back to this location maybe on a weekday? Can’t fault the restaurant for the delay and ambience it’s very busy but our wait time with reservations was about the same time as non reservation guests
Amazing food, atmosphere and customer service
You can never go wrong with Gyu Kaku when it comes to good quality meat. It is worth the money!
Good Japanese’s BBQ food. Service was ok but this place needs to put some money back into it. The menus were literally falling apart. Also the other locations have different specials which should be standard across all locations. We will be back.
Great wuality of meat, nice servers. Will be back again. We love the moodles and the rice.
Service was great .Food was delivered promptly we were sat quickly
Please was very dirty
Awesome experience everytime
Not worth the money, we were in a booth the room was so loud we couldn’t hold a conversation. I would not recommend this place. Servers forgot our veggies, forgot our dessert. The grill was not working properly took along time to cook our food they came by twice to adjust but it still took a long time. Bad experience.
Everything was too sweet and basically all miso. If they had just non marinated meat it would of been great. Pork belly was non-edible
When we sat down we saw bugs flying around. One that we killed looked like termite. Carlos was an excellent server however the lady that brought our filet pieces to bbq did not tell us that the plate held 2 orders, so while my husband ate the filet, I kept wondering when my meat would arrive. When we spoke to Carlos he checked and found out that the tray held two portions however, the lady who brought it to our table never mentioned that. The entrees we did receive were all tasty .
This was great for my dinner with friends! We all agreed on the same AYCE tier, so the food just kept coming! Highly recommend doing one of the AYCE tiers if you have a group of friends and you want to try others’ meats etc and just keep talking, and much less stress/math when the check comes.
Great food and friendly staff! I’ve been to other Gyu-Kaku and went for all-you-can-eat but was able to place order few times.. but this Gyu-Kaku was different. Staff was always keeping eyes on customers.
Took my kids here and they loved it🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 the food is so good and I really love that it’s all you can eat.
It is a little overpriced though. That is why I always think twice when I want to have dinner there
Great experiential dinner where we grilled delicious food on the grill inside our table. Happy Hour menu was good value!
Food was good. Waitress was very accomodating as we spent 2-1/2 hours for lunch.
Very noisy. Booths not comfortable. We had to remind the server several times about needing an extra setting. Food was fair. Meat was not very tender.
