Gyu-Kaku - Broadway - Vancouver Ratings and Reviews
I made a reservation a week before Christmas eve and we were lucky to get one. I called that day because we were running late. They were very nice and helpful. This place was good for family or friends to get together. It was wonderful experience and we'll be back.
Our server is friendly and efficient but she messed up our bill. Don't know if she did that on purpose because she gets extra money for charging more than what she actually sold? The food is always good there as I have been there many times before. On this occasion, we ordered the Kabuki set course for 3 people, one mega size beer and 2 regular pint size beer. The bill that I got looked way over charged and then I realized what she has done. She charged the Kabuki set course as priced on the menu and then she charged me again for every item on the Kabuki set course individually. I told our server of this mistake and she quickly corrected it. I tipped her 15% on the total of the bill and left. Thru this confusion, I didn't realized later when I got home that she also made another mistake by charging us 3 mega beer instead of 1 mega size beer and 2 regular pint size beer. I will now make sure I check my bill carefully each time before I pay.
Love cooking the fresh food ourselves; servers were attentive and changed the grills when needed; meat dishes were well marinated and tasty. Be prepared to get a little smokey on the hair and clothes. Probably not for toddlers/really young kids who do not yet understand not to touch the hot plate of BBQ but have arms long enough to reach it.
I really recommend the BBQ restaurant for friends' get-together. The restaurant is in the second floor, and the parking lot which is under the restaurant is rather convenient. I strongly suggest everyone make a reservation a few days in advance cuz the restaurant is so popular! We only have two hours to have dinner here cuz still lots of people in the waiting list after 2 hours. The service of the waitress was really appreciated. In one word, the atmosphere, the food, the service all are satisfactory.
Great food! And lots of it, my partner and I were very impressed with the quality of the meats and also meats and the meats also, the meats. The ice cream was good too, but boy howdy! The MEATS. The service was also stellar. Our waitresses were on it! Super impressed!
I feel like the quality of the food has deteriorated a bit this last visit. The chicken karaage which we really enjoyed in the past this time is quite tasteless. Not sure whether they have not seasoned as well before deep frying or whether it is the chicken itself. Also the beef bibimbap came with very little beef.
If I want to find a BBQ place to eat, I would always go to this location. Prices are always acceptable. Happy hours are at a convient timing that me and my friends can go to. Employees are always on point and very friendly. They will also teach you how to BBQ with different techniques! Recommend this place for sure!
I came back here during lunch super happy hour after my first time visit (was a dinner)again but this time during happy hours..food tasted waaay better especially the Toro Beef! Also the servers were exceptional at this visit! Our server Kevin was very polite and offered great customer service!
Worst service we've ever encountered in our lives. Dipping sauces were almost empty when we sat down, then not refilled once they quickly ran out. Had to constantly ask bussers to get drink refills because our server was nowhere to be found. Turns out the server decided to go on a break during the dinner rush! Not the best idea when you are cooking tiny plates of food that take 2-3 minutes to cook and eat. Finally, to top it all off, the server informs us that we have to leave because there is a reservation for our table! She has the gall to do this as we're cooking our food! Maybe if we had any semblance of decent service we wouldn't have been there as long. Oh and by the way, I booked a reservation too, and since we're still trying to enjoy our meal we sure as ** ain't leaving. She should be honoured that I gave her a $1.00 tip on our $137 meal. Obviously we are never going back there and we will tell everyone we know to avoid this location at all costs.
Their service is awesome! I booked a dinner for 2 to celebrate my wife's birthday. I initially asked them to write a card for my wife but they did more than that. They prepared delicious ice cream and almost half of the employees came to our table and sang happy birthday song to us. We we're IMPRESSED. I would recommend everyone go there and enjoy the meal.
They were very helpful by accommodating my last minute request to add one more person to my reservation on a very busy Sunday evening. Our server was very polite and efficient, and patient! I wish they had more locations across the lower mainland and open later for those who are looking for a late meal after 9pm. Love the food!
A friend who was in Vancouver last May revommended we go to this restaurant and was sure we would enjoy it. She was right!
We loves the BBQ concept and our 10 year old son enjoyed cooking his own food. He worked hard with the chopsticks and would not ask for a fork!!
