Great yakiniku, and conveniently at the mall.

This was my first trip to the Windward Mall location. I always eat at the Waikiki and Kapiolani branches when visiting. I was at the mall so decided to try this particular branch. As it is a franchise, each location is a little bit different. Being used to the Waikiki and Kapiolani branches... read more

I highly recommend Gyu-Kaku at the Windward Mall in Kaneohe. The food is great, it's a neat concept. If you come during their awesome happy hour, you can sample lots of different items at great prices. The staff has been exceptional every time we have visited. The manager (I believe his name is Rod) is unbelievably friendly and attentive........he deserves... More

We stumbled into this spot by default during a trip to the mall. My husband was gesitant at first because he wasn't up for cooking his own food. I coerced him into it and the experience began. Our waittress Mary was very pleasant. She explained all of our inquiries and was very attentive. The food was great and the atmosphere... More

We loved this place. Great food that you cook yourself at the table. The cocktails were on the small side compared to other restaurants in Oahu.

The food here is really good. You cook it yourself, but don't worry, it comes seasoned. It seems that everyone orders the bibimbap with good reason, it's really good. The only downside is you will walk out of the restaurant smelling like food. But the food is worth it here.

Great place to go with a group of friends. Food is pretty expensive considering you do all the work as far as cooking but it makes for a really fun time with friends. I wouldn't recommend as a date style place as the restaurant is always extremely noisy

Our senior outing had targeted a well known Kaneohe establishment, but disappointingly found it closed for the day (hand-written sign taped to the door indicated something unexpected happened). So we decided to go to the Windward Mall, which would probably offer a number of choices for us to choose from. We stumbled upon a restaurant called Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ and... More

Went on Saturday night,no reservations,but was seated in about 10 minutes.Our waiter Jon took the time to explain everything on menu. and was very attentive.It was worth the drive as the food was fresh and tasted so good. Had a good selection of dips that popped the veggies.Meat was so tender it melted in your mouth

Order, then cook up the food in the center of your own table. Fun times and the food is prepared nicely. Wait staff is excellent and I highly recommend eating here. A hidden treat located inside Windward Mall.
