I love the food at this place. My favorite is the garlic rice and the juicy kobe beef. The reason I gave only 4 stars is because this place needs to have a better upkeep. I understand they are busy....thats because the food is so good, but I dont like to see dust and crumbs of food left over in crevices that should be cleaned. Besides that, you will definitely enjoy the food!!

Can't Beat 50% off Happy Hour!!!

I always wanted to try this place but it was always soo packed! And now I know why. It wasn't until I discovered that beer (the good kind . .Kirin & Sapporo) was only 99 cents, did I make an effort to try it. This place is totally awesome and is my new Friday night hang out for their late night Happy Hour (they have happy hr twice a day). We usually go in a group of 4 or more and it works out ALL the time. No hassles with the check afterwards like usual. Two things though: 1) You must like meat 2) you must like alcohol. If you want sushi, this is not the deal for you as far as happy hr is concerned. For $15 per person (the minimum required) you can totally get full off all kinds of yummy appetizers (wontons,calamari, ahi poke..) , select meats ( we always get the garlic kalbi chuck & chicken), and did I mention, beer/sake!!! Besides the value, the restaurant itself is quite nice. Great for groups & birthdays as well a casual date or just hanging out at the bar. The staff is super friendly and helpful with the grill, suggestions for selecting items if you're unfamiliar with the food, and fast w/ the refills on alcohol! It's been a couple months now and we're still not sick of this place.

great atmosphere. kids would love it, so let them cook it.

expensive, some of the cuts are not very good (the place is dark and meat is marinated, so it is hard to tell until you cook it and put it in your mouth.)

sometimes, they have specials.

So much Fun and Yummy!

I recently went here on a date and it was so much fun. We were able to cook our food on a grill in the middle of our table. It kept us entertained. The food was fresh and marinated to perfection. I recommend the Bimba spicy rice as a side. They bring it to you in a cast iron skillet and it cooks at your table. All of the beef dishes are very tasty as well. The smores are fun at the end for dessert. The only thing I don't like is if you go hungry, it takes a while to cook and the portions are a bit small.

Lots of fun and the food is excellent

This is one of my favorite places to eat. It has a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere and the good is fastastic. They have great Happy Hour specials (sometimes 1/2 off certain meats, $.99 beer, etc.) It's fun to cook your food on a hibachi-type BBQ planted in the middle of your table, and because everything is grilled it feels very healthy. Highly recommend the garlic noodles or Ramen noodle soup in addition to rice, meat and veggies.

Gave it a chance...amd LOVED it!

Yes, I was a dibeliever regarding the benefits of ""cook it yourself"" dining (why would I want to go out and cook the food myself if I could do it at home for free?!?). I also never enjoy traditional Korean BBQ joints since I come out smelling like a grill and they don't have a good selection of chicken & seafood. But I gave Gyu Kaku a chance and was won over. This place is very clean, non-smelly, with a wonderfully diverse menu. And WHY do people think Gyu Kaku is expensive?!?! There's a choice of pricey or moderately priced beef, while the rest of the entrees are all fairly priced (my favorite entree, the basil chicken, was around $7). My husband and I paid $60 for a great meal... Why I LOVED this dining expereince: tasty food that won't break your diet (you don't get as full b/c you take your time grilling and eating the food, without carby sides like mashed potattoes), cool low-key ambience, waitors that are attentive but not in-your-face... Overall this is a new favorite date spot for us.

""American"" japanese bbq...look at the prices

this place is for those who dont know they are getting ripped off... there are many of these places in the valley and LA that offer this kind of cooking and food for almost half of the price and half of the fuss...try gochi in the valley...

Save yourself the trouble of figuring out what to eat and get the Miso Harami Skirt Steaks. Wow, they're unbelievable. Expect to pay about 25-30 per person. Wonderful atmosphere and exceptional service. On a side note, I wouldn't recommend taking a vegetarian here with meat eaters. The grill can get pretty dirty through the course of the evening and picky vegetarians probably won't like meat parts touching the veggies...which is near impossible.

Great Japanese Korean BBQ mix

Ive seen this place a dozen times but never dined there. I finally stopped by with a friend and we both loved it. You get to cook your own choice of marinated meats with seafood, beef chicken or pork to choose from. The rice is served in a hot bowl with your choice of added vegees or egg. I tried the crispy seaweed with creame cheese for the first time which was a good appetizer. I ended up having a couple beef plates so next time I will be getting some seafood. The service is excellent and they also have a bar.
