    Food came quickly. Server was very accommodating. They no longer have a kids menu. We had one of the two person bbq meals, and it was more food than two people could eat. S’mores were fun!

    Haven’t been here for a few years. Feels old & dirty now. A/C was out. NO effort to bring in fans…to a place where you are grilling at your table. Entertaining out of town guests…so embarrassing.

    We come here almost weekly. Staff is usually on top of it and attentive. From the moment we sat down it seemed we didn’t have a designated waiter. One waiter was so into a table of 3 guys next to us, talking story and checking on them continuously. It actually started looking like a flirting thing going on. We received food and they walked away. I had to tell them that the grill wasn’t on. We waited for it to get hot. It was taking forever. We ended up calling someone over 3 times to let them know our grill was not getting hot. I was a bit annoyed at that point and asked if we could move us to a new grill…. Why didn’t they offer that to us? They have in the past. I don’t know if it was understaffing issue, although I saw plenty of staff walking around, or just a bad day. Over all… we will of course come back as we like the food.

    Grill plate had uneven heat distribution which made grilling experience less than optimal. Hostess wasn’t very personable. Waitress was nice but could tell she was frustrated with faulty grill plate. Overall experience not as great as before pandemic.

    We ordered the same foods and menu as the Guy-Kaku at Waikiki where we had dinner a few weeks ago. The foods tasted much better there at Waikiki. There was no salty taste in Garlic noodle, and same for other menu so it was a little bit disappointing.

    We were a little disappointed with the service this time around. We frequent here often, but today, the staff was really off... not attentive, and forgetting to bring things out. It was not up to par with what weʻve become accustomed to at this franchise. The food was great though...

    Even if it's same Gyu-kaku, every branch provides different services, ambiance and food quality. About food quality, this branch was the most decent one I've been. I hope their restrooms be cleaned more. Their soap dispenser was empty or out of order last time, but they didn't get it fixed yet.

    My 10yo said this was not just dinner but an experience, which is a perfect description. We ordered the dinner for 4 and there was so much food. And, it was good! We had fun cooking and trying all the different meats and the s’mores at the end were a perfect touch.
