Love Gyu-Kaku. The food is healthy and tasty and the atmosphere is fun and energetic. I love the West LA location the best but the others are good as well (Torrance, Beverly Hills, etc). One of my favorite restaurants in LA !!!

Terrific for a date

I'd been here once before for a party, so when I was looking for a place for a fancy date with my boyfriend, we went here. We chose a meal for two off the menu and there was so much food it filled up the boyfriend, who is a big guy with a huge appetite. This has become our default restaurant for dates and we go there any chance we get. It's a little pricey, but reasonable given the amount of food you get.

Dinner with Friends? Go Out & Cook It Yourself!

The Topanga Canyon (Woodland Hills) location is one of the few that actually offers an unlimited menu in addition to the regular menu! I believe the manager told us that it's one of three locations in Southern California that offers the unlimited menu. The have changed the ""rules"" that apply to the unlimited menu since they first started offering it, but the guidelines are still reasonable. We normally get the Our favorite things there are the Harami Miso beef and the Kurobota sausages. Yes, it's not ""real"" Korean food...but I never said it was supposed to be authentic. For something that is fusion Korean-Japanese, it's not all bad.

Worst Korean food served by a Japanese restaurant in LA.

Encouraged by all the fanfares in the media about Gyu-Kaku, I decided to check one out in Los Angeles. We were a group of 8, and was seated right across from the Men's rest room, that was a bummer. But with enthusiasm, we ordered beef, salmon, shrimp, vegies, and so on. Many knows that almost all of the foods served in Gyu-Kaku are of Korean cuisine, and not Japanese. But that misrepresentation is perfectly OK as long as the food tast good. To everyone's disappointment, the food was completely ""Americanized"" for mass consumption by the locals (who rated the food as excellent). Every meat and seafood pieces were heavily marinated in soy sauce and way too much sugar, Even the Bibimba tasted the same- nothing like the real one with a zing of hot pepper sauce. If you truly loved the Korean BBQ, skip Gyu-Kaku and look for many excellent eateries around the city.

had better.

okay this is a big chain place for bbq. that doesn't mean it is the best. i've been to two locations. wla and san fernando. had to wait twice. ambiance is good. service is good too. pricing might be a little high. but i just can't get over the way they cut their meat! they are all so uneven! sometimes i get a chunk and sometimes i can't even pick them up with my chopsticks! i like the meat simple. they are too sauced up to figure out the quality of the meat.

i love LOVE Gyu- kaku

japanese bbq at it's best. Plus its an extra ""fun""bonus that you cook your own food. Everything always tasted so fresh and is always promptly. Staples are avocado and ahi salad app., garlic shrimp, miso steak, ahi tuna, and the signature rice....you can't go wrong!

Great Food and Fun for everyone!

We looked forward to this experience based upon other reviews and web info and we weren't disappointed! Gyu-Kaku is a cute restaurant offering a great variety of items to grill on your own table top grill. We tried a variety of beef items with different marinades, garlic shrimp, vegetables and sukiyake style rice. The quality was great, grilling was fun and we really enjoyed the whole experience. Service was prompt and very helpful with provided suggestions and recommendations. I wish we had saved room for the S'Mores dessert. I wish we had one of the restaurants at home! Give it a try, you won't be dissapointed.

Great food and good fun

Gyu-kaku is a favorite among my group of friends. The food is excellent, very well prepared, and the do-it-yourself factor means you can cook the food however you like it. They have excellent, large salads, good soups, and a variety of quality beef, chicken, seafood and vegetable dishes. The key to this place is in the sauces they use to marinate the tender meats they prepare for you.

The service is generally good (I've had mixed experiences), and you can order periodically throughout your meal if you want to try new dishes. Small groups (4-6 people) that can fit in the isolated booths seem to be the best fit here.

Fantastic DIY meal!

This do-it-yourself Japanese grill is above and beyond the favorite restaurant in my friend circles. Attentive service, fair portions for the price. One serving of their most popular Hirami Miso beef is about $8 and you'll still have room for some seafood or veggies.
Try the garlic spinach or sweet potatoes (not yams...sweet white potatoes) they're surprisingly good.
If you want a dessert to remember, go for the S'mores. We've had so much fun roasting marshmellows over our in-table grill.

Reservations or an early dinner walk-in are recommended as the wait can be rather long in a very crowded front hallway-sized entry way or a usually chilly Pico Blvd. Definitely a great place to celebrate or to treat an out-of-town guest.
