I heart Gyu-Kaku!

I love Gyu-Kaku! First introduced to them at the Kapiolani location, have been to the Waikiki location, hit up the San Diego location (cause that's where I live), and met up with my cousins at this location. Always a friendly greeting upon entering, and the wait staff is so nice, courteous, and... read more

Love this place and have taken every visitor and family members there! Kids love to do the cooking. Think we have tried just about everything on the menu. We always go during happy hours.....best deals!!

Ok, this was recommended by a local, and we loved it! It is more of a local hole in the wall. It's not fancy or super nice, but it's good food and fun. We ate there during the lunch special for two, and it was plenty of food for three. My son did all the cooking (with supervision...he's 12).

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, I asked for the kama'aina menu. The... 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
