    The food was great. We went for the chefs special for two, it was plenty of food and very good value. Would recommend the chefs special to get a good taste of a bunch of different things. The staff were very friendly and advised how long to let things cook for.

    Get ready to eat tons and eat good! Not only is all their beef options and the chili shrimp super good (we are not big pork eaters), I Love zucchini and I LOVE sides. Edamame, Kim Chee cucumber, gyoza, tofu, seaweed salad, rice, miso soup. Service is great and everyone always very nice. Came here for my birthday with my husband :) and will bring my parents when they come.

    I had a yearning for Japanese food while in Honolulu and walked past Guy Haku. I had a pleasant and positive result to my enquiry so booked. A busy and cheerful atmosphere when we arrived and were greeted by our cheerful server, Baxter, His advice and attentiveness made our dining experience great. We enjoyed the food we chose and went home very satisfied. Regretfully our stay was too short for a return visit.

    This was a fabulous experience. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We enjoyed volcano rolls, filet, salad, asparagus and cocktails. I felt the food was very well priced for the quality which was great! Ambiance was chill with great music.

    We went while on vacation. We hadn’t heard of the restaurant before, but we all agreed it exceeded our expectations. It’s a cool concept barbecuing at your table, food was awesome, our server and all the staff were awesome, and you get quite a bit of food.

    This was such a fun experience, and the food was amazing! I have never had a Japanese BBQ experience (similar to Korean BBQ in terms of table-grilling). We did the all-you-can-eat in 90 minutes menu and it was such a fun way to try something new (just a couple bites of this or that). HIGHLY recommend going here if you're in Waikiki!

    One of the best deals in Waikiki. The servers and managers are very friendly and patient, treat locals and tourists with the same courtesy and professionalism. Alex took very outstanding care of me while dining solo during Happy Hour. Pitcher of ice cold Kirin draft is only $12!!! Prime Kalbi was my favorite meat to grill. It’s all good here at Gyukaku, Japanese yakiniku with lots of Hawaiian hospitality. That’s an unbeatable combo!!

    First time at this Gyu Kaku. The lunch special is a good deal. We both got the 3 choice meal. The food was filling and tasty. The service was friendly and attentive. The restaurant is in need of updating. It looks a bit rundown. The table for 2 is small, and it was a bit uncomfortable sitting so close to the party of 4 right next to us. We could hear everything they were saying, and I'm sure they could clearly hear our conversation as well. I did not understand why there were plexiglass dividers between the backsides of each booth, but no Plexiglas dividers between the side-by-side seating. It wouldn't help any for the Plexiglas to be behind us when we're facing away from each other.

    Very good BBQ. Highly recommend this venue. Only issue is there is no validation for the $30 parking. Unless you are ok with paying for parking rhe oeuvre of a meal, park at nearby lot for$6/hr Royal Hawaiian Parking.
