Very nice food. The best was the bibimbap beef and chili dumplings.

The food is really good, but I was deceived because I asked for a place near the window when I reserved and we were placed in the hallway (who it was the worse place I think). So the ambiance was not very good, not cosy.

Very slow service, avoid this place!! I reserved this spot for 6 people but they gave us a small table with only one grill. We were even not able to squize in. It was a Monday noon and they have a lots of empty seats. I asked the server if we can go to another table with 2 grills, but the server refused and told us we only have 2hrs to dine.

J'ai pas beaucoup aimé les viande assaisonnée, j'ai préféré celles avec poivre et sel

Guy-Kuku a été une belle découverte pour mon mari et moi.
Accueil très chaleureux, service attentionné de Chai, nourriture abondante, fraîche et savoureuse, et ce, à prix fort sympathique.
Je le recommande sans retenue et je souhaiterait que les gens de la Ville de Québec aient la chance d’avoir un Guy-Kuku dans leur ville.
Merci
Et bravo!

Surprised how much attention we were receiving from the staff to either clear the empty plates or change the grill. Love it.

Waiters got very aggressive towards the end of our stay. The first girl that served us was sweet and attentive, she was later replaced with an obnoxious guy that clearly was trying to rush us to pay and clear our tables even before we were served our dessert. Took my boyfriend for dinner for his birthday and it was not the same kind of experience we had in New York Gyu-Kaku.

La nourriture y était incroyable!
Le seul bémole, la serveuse ne parlait pratiquement pas français... je n'ai rien compris de ce qu'elle nous expliquait en lien avec les types de viande et la cuisson. Elle était toutefois fort sympathique :)
Nous avons adoré notre souper - VRAIMENT!

its one of my favorite resto. A bit expensive but we pay for quality. Sometimes i find some cut of meat are well done in sense they are too small and with the cooking they are shrinking so make them a bit un eatable or enjoyable.

it happen once that i didnt recieve part of a meal and realize after paying the bill but nothing really dramatic


For the rest... service, quality... awesome

Très bon service et personnel souriant et sympathique. Belle Ambiance et beau décor. Belles entrées. La viande était beaucoup trop grasse à mon goût à faire cuire sur le bbq.

The portions where smaller than usual, and requested the salad with everything on the side which the waiter forgot twice... he was not attentive and we had to adjust heat settings ourself. Suggest that you install buzzer for service.

if I could give this 10 stars, I would. It was our (me and my wife) first time at a place like this, the service was excellent, very helpful for a first time visitor. Our waitress was very informative and super nice and told us what was good and a best for trying as much as we could. Her recommendations did not disappoint! The food was excellent! An easy way to spend a couple hours cooking and talking and trying out new food.

Nous adorons aller manger chez Gyu-Kaku mais aimerions avoir plus de temps pour manger. Nous devons quitter le restaurant après 2 heures pour laisser la place, ce que nous trouvons dommage. Nous mangeons vite et n'apprécions pas à sa juste valeur le repas.

We went for dinner on November 9th and we noticed the quality of the food has significantly decreased. The meat wasn’t fresh with a brown tint, was chewy and full nerves. My husband nearly choked eating the meat.The harami steak has a very strong iron taste to it. The bimbimnap beef was a fail.The rice was undercooked and over cooked at the same time. We went many times to gyu kaku and loved the food. What happened to the quality?

The food was ok no more. The staff was very good. The problem is you start the night with being told you have max 2 hours. The BBQ was not strong enough so we could not cook the vegetables. It took so long that we were running out of time. WE were told we had taken all the time we could and we should prepare to leave. That to me is very bad

Was an amazing experience there!

The place wasn't crowded in terms of spacing. The person who served us was very informative and nice, easy to approach and ask questions.

At one point, they brought out the wrong item but we weren't sure if it was our fault since we pointed and asked the udon version of the soup that came and she checked, confirming that it wasn't on our end. I would've been okay if it was our mistake as well, but the approach and leisure/kind attitude our waitress had made the dinner more comfortable, definitely a great place to celebrate a birthday in a more intimate setting (it wasn't too loud which was something I wanted to have, to be able to have an intimate conversation).

Thanks!

Enjoyed the food but thought that the Bibimbap wasn't as good as it has been in the past. Not as crispy as it usually is and seemed to be a lot more spicy. Plus the welcome and goodbye was not as exuberant as it used to be.

The food was amazing but service was very poor. I reserved in advance to avoid waiting and our table was almost 20 minutes late to being ready. As well the food service was extremely slow and an order of brocolli was only brought at the very end of the meal.
