C'est ma 3e fois au restaurant, mais la première fois que je suis déçue de mon experience. Je trouve très impoli que la premiere chose qu'on se fait dire à l'accueil c'est : Je vous avertie vous avez une table pour 2 donc c'est 1h30 1h45 max. Ça commence mal quand dès l'arrivée on se fais avertir... Il y aurait moyen d'être plus courtois dans votre requête... Ensuite, nous sommes francophones et notre serveur, bien qu'il ait éte bien poli et professionnel, ne parlait pas un mot français. Je déplore qu'on ne se fasse pas servir à Montréal. Pour le reste, la nourriture était bonne comme d'habitude.

Arrived at the table, was all sticky.
The girl at the entry was cleaning the table next to me sprayed her cleaning product all over my arm, i shouted by surprised and was ignored. With NO EXCUSE AT ALL.
It was such a terrible experience with untrained staff, service took between 30-45 mins after ordering. I stayed for over 2 hours at the restaurant due to the wait time.

The sous/vid ribs were cold they came in a cast iron pan so no reason to be cold and it was overpriced and it took awhile to get them, the beef nigiri was so tough that I even had a hard time pulling apart with my fingers, I wanted to get a virgin cocktail and was told it would be the same $6.95 charge as a real cocktail which is ridiculous. Also all these items were specials so there is no reason for it. The service was slow to get the food even though it was not all that busy and we had reserved. We had gone because we ate at this restaurant in Hawaii and it was so good we went back multiple times, not so here. Will not be going back.

We were visiting Montreal to celebrate our engagement and wanted to have a nice dinner out. Neither one of us has had Japanese barbecue before and we loved the experience of grilling our food as well as how delicious everything was! Not only that, we loved the wagyu beef special - something that neither one of us has had outside of Asia. Highly recommended!

Every things were very good. And what I like the most is the BBQ oven which is clean and we do not feel any smell of smoke. The only thing I like less is the sauce was a bit sweet, but it's maybe my personal taste.

I often tell people that Gyu Kanu is the only restaurant in Montréal that doesn’t leave me with regrets. And I will continue saying that because once again, my dining experience at your lovely establishment was favourable.

Great dining experience. Food was delicious and value was excellent. Service could have been a bit better because our waiter seemed to be a bit disinterested in his job. Other than that, we had a great time and will def be going back.

Chhay was a great waiter always attending to our needs and informing us of the little details on what the dishes were and how long to cook them for. He also was so attentive with changing the grill ensuring our food was not cooked on a burnt grill. Not once did we have to call him over since he made sure we were well taken care of and happy with our meal.
The manager was also very friendly and courteous from beginning to end. Well done Gyu Kaku Montreal.

Second time coming and it did not disappoint. Our waiter was so kind, funny and helpful with the menus and even helped us save money against buying similar meats. Will always recommend and be back soon!
