    Maybe it was just a fluke but service was very slow to the point that we were told it was last call for our 90 minutes but we had spent a good chunk of time waiting for the second round of items we ordered I believe it was about 40 minutes. The servers didn’t seem to have very well balanced sections and the tables were incredibly small for how slowly they maintain the service. They were out of a few items which we would have not ordered the highest ayce had we known. Overall I would not recommend going for the highest ayce. The lower option based on their service would be on par with their rules.

    My son and I came here for Thanksgiving before going to a movie and I am just sorry we didn't have more time. We made it through two appetizers, two beers, a regular sake (which was as big as a large sake elsewhere, BTW), and two ramen before stopping to catch the movie. We didn't really get to delve into it, but from what I experienced; I am making plans to go back. This Japanese steak house features hibachi and AYCE options menu. I have to say; the beef is flavorful and definitely melts in your mouth. We shared an order of Fried Pork Gyoza dumplings and the Chili & Yuzu Roast Beef and I have to say, I kind of resented having to share - it was that good. I had the Goma Negi Shio; braised pork in an oxtail broth and THAT was the best ramen I've ever had. I think the noodles may have been homemade as well. My son had the Spicy Beef ramen, and it was gone before I knew it. It's in Cherry Creek, so you know, pricey; but well worth it. We had a great server who answered all of my questions and was very patient as we had a difficult time deciding what to order - and we were gossiping. There was a bit of a wait between courses and we also had to wait for our table, which factored into how much we ate, but honestly, the food and server made it worth it. I intend to go back to experience the hibachi and have Chili & Yuzu Roast Beef all to myself.

    Our server was not well-trained. I understand she's new and still learning but checking in with guests regularly would be helpful. We had to wait 30 minutes for her to check back so I can ask for S'Mores. It was slow evening so this is non excusable. There was no bartendar to make cocktails, so she had to make the 2 drinks and it was bad but the group didn't say anything because we just don't complain and is aware of restaurant business but her service was very bad. She's sweet but she could work on her knowledge on food items and checking in on customers more regularly and at least fill waters. She didn't even ask if we wanted more cocktails. It was a birthday celebration too. Sad but I do enjoy the food. Disappointed in service. I would return but would ask for different server. Sorry.

    We sat there last night for 15 minutes with no contact. Finally, the server came with no apology, dropped off water, and took off again?? Was really excited to try this place, but they seem to cater to the regulars and the regulars only. Never again!

    Everything was great except for the wait times to get food. AYCE has a 90-minute limit but we can’t even get our first round of order until 30 mins later. I love Gyu Kaku and I go almost twice every month but the service and the wait times have just been crazy. I hope this gets fixed soon!

    Place needs a remodel. Portions of the floor look to have water damage and we’re all buckling. That area was blocked off by just a row of chairs. Service was good and staff was very nice. Food was fair, not great.

    The miso soup was bad. The place looked sad and the waitress was nice but overwhelmed and not very good. She needed better training. The food took a long time to be served. The grill wasn’t working well. I will never go there again.

    So we came here for an early dinner and this is our second time here. Literally as soon as we walked in the host was AMAZING he was even considering accommodating our table away from people because I had an important call during our reservation!!!!! It wasn’t busy at all since it was early so we didn’t have to do all that. Our server was great! She was super informative and so sweet, I was tripping over my words a bit because of my speech impediment and she was so patient with us :) The kitchen was clearly not very busy because everything came out so quickly but boy oh boy was it all delicious, my husband ordered us the meat lovers this time and it was delicious, just a few bites more than we could handle but it was yummy. For drinks I had one of the Jumauni cold sake and it was so yummy and perfectly chilled. My husband ordered a mango drink that he said he enjoyed as well. We definitely recommend stirring it a bit since a lot of the syrup sits at the bottom. All in all an awesome experience with everyone and we will 100% make this something we visit once a month.

    Everyone was awesome from our server reading the room and just dropping by to refresh drinks and keeping an eye out in case we needed anything to the manager being super proactive and offering me some cold sake I wouldn’t have tried/ordered otherwise. Such a cool vibe, with indoor seating. It’s obviously a bit warm because of all the grills so definitely dress for the temperature. We did the most affordable course since we were just dining with the 2 of us and it was more than enough food to get a taste of the menu and figure out our favorites for the first time there. Additionally, we ordered the karagee (my fave!) and something by else I can’t remember the name of but I know it was pickled lol. I was so wrapped up in how great the food and ambiance was that I didn’t even take a moment to record content for my TikTok and just enjoyed being there with my fiancé going over the menu and just preparing everything together the way we like them best. This menu isn’t one that you have to make alterations to and it’s beautifully done. Thanks guys so much for the awesome experience and we’ll 100% be back within a week! So yummy :)

    Reading another Google review from Yi Sun pretty much confirmed our suspicion that this location's manager is prejudice against small kids and/or Asians. Definitely do not recommend going here which is ironic as this is a Japanese BBQ restaurant. Drop $200+ and we regret sitting into this place. We have visited their other locations in SoCal and the Denver location but this location is horrible.

    We love the food here but the service is abysmal. All the food was dumped at our table, no dirty plates were removed and we never saw our waitress after the raw meat plates were dropped off. We asked another server to get her and we asked for a grill change and she said she would return but never did. She never returned to bring us our bill we finally just went up and asked for it at the front desk. We were very disappointed in the service. It was probably the worst service I’ve ever had.

    We arrived at 12:55 for lunch. There were only 3 other tables occupied at the time so I anticipated a fairly quick meal. The food was average tasting & although our waitress was lovely, we didn’t get our food (plates of raw meat to grill and rice) until 1:45 - which we had to ask for. We finally finished the entire experience at 2.30 - far too long for a near-empty restaurant. Again, the waitress did her best but perhaps there are kinks being worked out at the back end because for a meal we had to cook ourselves, the wait was pretty horrendous.

    Second time here and absolutely shocked they are still having leaking issues in the back section being closed off. Totally ruins the vibe of the restaurant. Restaurant was hot- we both were sweating and being in front of the grill did not help. Server didn’t bring water frequently and found myself asking for water. Have been to the other location maybe 5 times and it seems like the food portions really got smaller this time. We’ve always ordered the same thing and it seems like each plate was about 60% of what it used to be. We would have leftovers with a set meal and now we don’t. Literally three small pieces of chicken on our meal. Overall disappointed because of the change - don’t feel like it was a better experience than the last.

    Fun evening for sure. Our second trip to this location and we did enjoy ourselves overall. We had a group of four and no one left hungry. Multiple appetizer and grill courses arrived and we couldn’t finish it all. Most of the staff is likely new so, overlooking a few service hiccups is no big deal at all. I’m sure they will work out the communication issues between front and back of the house. A fun place for an evening out. The only thing to which I took exception was the host’s table selection. The restaurant was mostly empty and available tables were plentiful. However, he elected to seat our group of four in a very awkward table wedged into a small corner of the room next to a fairly large party of ten (essentially, we shared a table with them as only a low, movable divider separated the two group). Three of our party had to scoot into the booth around a bend and then one chair was placed in the entrance to the corner leaving very little room for us. It looked like the table was designed for two, perhaps three at the most. It was close quarters and the members of our party that had to wedge into the booth side were rather uncomfortable. With many obviously four person tables available, the seating choice was odd to say the least. We quickly ran out of room when small plates of food began arriving. Not the worst thing that could happen to a dinner party but we were all a little confused. The meal was good and the atmosphere is fun. We will probably be back as it’s close to home.
