Gyu-Kaku - Arlington, VA
Great food. Great server. Poor check in experience with hostess. She seemed annoyed with us.
Very good experience. We love Gyu-Kaku! We lived in Japan for three years, and yakiniku is our favorite.
Always love coming here
The food was extremely good, and the prix fixe meat lovers menu was a great value for two! A cool experience overall, as well.
Loved it! As a party of three, we were able to do the standard for two Gyu-Kaku plates with some add ons a la carte! Meat was prepped beautifully and quality of vegetables was excellent! I downloaded the app and can’t wait to use the rewards to get more points for discounts!
The for two meals are a good deal
Loved all of it. Definitely recommend and will be back soon.
Always fun eating here!
We love this place!! Definitely will go back again for BBQ!!
Good as always! Been to this location 5 times and we enjoy the food, service and fun with friends.
Extremely Poor service. Server routinely forget to bring food items out. Some items did not come out until after the meal was over even after reminding server and manager numerous times that we did not receive our food orders. Didn’t refill our drinks on time and had to keep reminding to refill drinks. A few times the drinks were not correct but we drank them anyway because of the long wait. Server Turned off the grill to replace the grill grates but didn’t come back to replace the grill after Reminding server numerous times to replace grill or at least turn it back on. We sat around for 20 minutes waiting to grill. When bringing out desert items server did not bring out spoons or plates for us to enjoy the deserts. We asked for spoons and plates numerous times but server just brought out the check instead. Food was really good but service was extremely poor. Talked to the manager after receiving bill about our poor experience. Manager reduced bill. Will not be visiting again.
It was the first time and not the last:)
The food is good but service is just okay.
It was great! Always is... i always take my friends and family for a new dining experience. Will return!
Took my husband here for his birthday so we could try a new restaurant in our area. Fun dinner and great service
Services are the best I never saw in the past especially Sharon. She is the best.
Amazing experience and our server filled us in on everything we needed to know!
Delicious food. The beef tongue was amazing. Will definitely go back just for that.
Good and nice!
Small portions, overpriced. Sukiyaki bibimbap was terrible—tasted like rice and bean paste.
Servers are always friendly whenever I've been here. They are especially helpful for first timers explaining the menu and how to cook.
Here you cook all your own meats or fishes, which took most of my time once I did that for myself and my husband. Some of the food was flavorful but some just ordinary. It was ver crowded and therefore super noisy. The servers try hard. Overall just an ok expérience - lots of work on my party for a meal that wasn’t extraordinary. I’ve found my Korean bbq experiences more flavorful!
Overall, a wonderful night; however, my wife bit into an “avocado seed” and almost broke her tooth. The server promised to remove it from the bill but nothing was taken off the bill. I’ve been to a few locations in Hawaii and Japan and thought the presentation was great and the food was above average.
I would go again but will be wary of seeds in my food going forward.
We ordered Meat Lover's, and thought it was a great value! The food was plenty for three of us! Highly recommend it.
Way too loud to carry on a conversation. One suggestion is to turn off your background music when the restaurant gets crowded.
Excellent service as always. The food is great although Some marinated meat can be a little too sweat.
We love Gyu Kaku restaurants and this Arlington location is no exception! Affordable, delicious, and they have a rewards app. We will definitely be back.
We recently discovered Gyu-Kaku and are very delighted. It can be tough to get a table so plan ahead. The quality of the food, especially meats, is very good, and it is a fun experience to cook by the table. Definitely one of the higher quality restaurants around in Arlington.
The waitstaff were very helpful explaining the length of time to cook each meat. They were prompt with cleaning up dishes and delivering food and drinks.
My brother was visiting from Cali where they have a location and he always told me cane highly recommended. The food was not unlimited(all you can eat) considering normal Korean BBQ is unlimited meats as in Iron Age, Honey Pig, etc. had pretty much package and nice choices for the a la carte menu. Liked the s’mores and the calamari but the amount of meat for the packages were not substantial, even when you add more meat still was 2 pieces (the most) for a 7$ plate of meat. Had really great service but not your ideal Korean BBQ unlimited all you can eat spot.
Gyu-Kaku was excellent from start to finish. The staff was superb, and food was delicious. It is also a fun family experience, and we will certainly go back again.
Not a big fan of their garlic fried rice and spicy galbi soup. soft tofu soup was okay, but was more like kimchi soup. Meat were marinated little too much to my taste. Horumon was good. Shrimp shumai and tofu appetizer are not bad, mushroom medley was good but wish it was not marinated. Spinach garlic was good.
Second time eating at this restaurant but for my birthday this time. The food was just as good as last time, granted the value was not amazing but the quality clearly makes up for that. Our waitress was amazing that night.
I’ve been to Gyu Kaku in other cities, and it hasn’t disappoint me this time!! Love the food here, nice meat, nice dessert, nice rice and dumplings.. It’s a good place for friend reunion and celebration.
The staff, food and ambiance were great. I had a great time again at this place and would recommend it.
Great ambiance and delicious food! Manager and staff were very accommodating and made it a very authentic experience.
Fantastic food and great service. Absolutely recommend.
Service was awesome and friendly!! Was celebrating good times with family!!
Good quality of meet for BBQ.
A must try! Bring your whole family! Drinks are good 👍
