I fell in love with Gyu Kaku in Calgary. But that was vacation. Back at home, the one in Montréal is just as good. I brought friends there and we all agree their meat is delicious. If you love BBQ, this is a must.

I always get a consistent service at Gyu-Kaku, no matter which location I visit. Food is always delicious and fu fresh. At least at this location we were not rushed to finish our food and leave. The Arlington location always limit you on how long you can seat and enjoy your meal....two thumbs up for a great service.....

Totally satisfied by the food here, every single dish.
All taste really good, hot and the portion is enough for 4 people (we ordered the 125$ set). And also a dish of matcha tiramisu.
Very disappointed. I think they made it for a long time then put it in a fridge. Can’t feel the mascarpone in my mouth, and it’s not a tiramisu cake I’d say :)
However, we had to wait a bit long after finishing the entrees.
And it’s quite loud here 😂
The price is a bit higher than other Japanese restaurant.
Anyway, I’d still recommend this restaurant to my friends

This is an amazing experience overall. A do it yourself cooking experience with some good choices of drinks. You will have a chance to taste new things and enjoy a traditional Japanese /Korean yaki niku restaurant. The service is impeccable and fast. The manager Bobby is taking real good care of you for your every needs. It's a must on your bucket list.

The restaurant was a bit noisy when we went so it made it a bit hard to understand the waiters instructions on the meat cookery. Besides that everything was delicious and went above and beyond our expectations. Will recommend and come back

Great experience and service. I already recommended the place to friends. Food is fresh and tasteful. Table was however too small for the 4 people combo. The pace of the service could be adjusted a little bit, so that we don’t get overwhelmed with foods and no place to navigate.

I reserved for my family for my birthday. I had to convince my parents to go, as they do not much like to go to Montreal anymore. Unfortunately, the food was not as good as I remembered it. Almost everything was overly salty: any meat with miso sauce, the garlic noodles, the steamed broccoli, and most of all the premium tongue. The bistro hanger that I remember being the cut my friends and I had agreed on numerous occasions to be the best one for the price fell short this time. The meat was tough, and salty. This practice feels akin to lower-end Korean BBQ places salting all their meats or marinading various meats with the same recipe. The appeal of Gyu-Kaku, beyond grilling meat, was to taste the different cuts of meat. I did not taste beef this time, only different salty textures.

While table waiting service was excellent, management's solution to our complaint about the premium tongue being exceedingly salty was to offer us another serving of it. We were already at the end of our meal (after our initial first dishes, the rest came at a snail's pace) and we were already full. At a minimum, the premium beef tongue should have been docked from the bill. In retrospect, it may have been, but there was no mention of it and I threw away the receipt, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for that.

One last small point of criticism. I had reserved for 5 and they sat us at a table for 4 with an added chair at the end. Are there no tables made for 6 people? It was a bit hectic to place all the dishes on the table. Thankfully the waiting staff was attentive and quick to clear away empty plates.

We were four and we took the SHOGUN menu. All of us would have like to see a bit more fish in that meal. We had three variety of beef cuts, chicken, pork and shrimps. You should consider a sea food menu. But over all, we did enjoy our meal.

Took our daughter and friends while they were in
Montreal to perform (early 20’s) They loved the food and and being able to grill it themselves. Great servers and plenty of food and choices on the 6 person “Shogun” we ordered. Fun for family or group.

We reserved a table for 8, and finally we were 6, told them at the entrance, and finally they gave us a table for 4 and added a chair and we were sitting 3 on a place for 2. And we didnt' have enough place for everything on the table, it was very tight. Next time ask a table for 2 ppl extra and you should be ok.
