“A fun food experience”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

My wife booked a reservation for 12 here for her mom's 70th Birthday. We arrived on time and they had us seated within 5 minutes. The waitress serving us was really nice but she kept forgetting parts of our orders. I guess that is to be expected with such a large party but it did seem to happen way too often. Still she was really nice and corrected any issues quickly.

The food was fantastic. High quality cuts of meat. My kids had a blast grilling their food on the open flame. We only had 2 grills for a party of 12 which probably wasn't enough. I waited to cook my food so that others could cook theirs. I'd say that 4 per grill would be about right. 6 was just too many for that small of a grill.

Overall everyone had a great time and left full. I'd recommend it to anyone.

“So good we went there twice in two days!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

We went to the restaurant during Happy Hour on the first day and liked it so much, we returned there for dinner the next day.

During our first visit, we ordered the Hanabi set. We enjoyed everything except the basil chicken so on our second visit, we went a la carte, trying their spicy tuna volcano and chicken garlic noodles, both of which we liked. Make sure you order the beef tongue! And the green tea Mille crepe was soooo good!

Service was highly attentive. The waiters and waitresses constantly topped up ice water for us and removed used plates and bowls.

Our bill for the a la carte meal was significantly higher so do bear that in mind if you, like us, tend to order lots of dishes.

Having been to Gyu-kaku in Singapore, we find Gyu-Kaku Times Square much better value for money.

“friend's Bday”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Location excellent and nice decoration, food is good. The service is TERRIBLE, since we went for a birthday we were taking pictures cause it was a new experience cooking at the table, but the waiter it was so nasty telling us (am not sure if was he/she) that it doesn't wanted to be in the pictures, but we were taking group pictures and at the same time the waiter was mixing some rice at the corner of the table...

Nasty waiter, rude to me and everyone else are like machines, just run with the food, NO CUSTOMER SERVICE AT ALL.

reasonable price for 6 people

“second trip, just as much fun and great”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

We were looking forward to coming back here and weren't disappointed. We made a reservation for 6PM and then got a bottle of sake and some apps in the bar area. Staff is great and very friendly. Happy hour prices are great. We had (again) volcano tuna, wings, and garlic noodles. Volcano tuna was amazing. Wings were maybe a bit too salty this time, but still very good. Garlic noodles were awesome (though note that they come with the dinner assortments).

Dinner was great. We just went with the 4 person assortment (again at happy hour prices). It ended up being too much food and we took some back to the hotel with us. The items to grill are all very good and the kids had fun doing the grilling for the family.
