    I am Japanese. I and my American husband have been to Japan many times, and have often enjoyed Japanese BBQ. We miss Japanese BBQ here in the US but with Gyukaku, we no longer have to suffer! The yakiniku meats are fresh and of high quality. Unlike other BBQ places, we can control how well or raw we can cook the meat. Appetizers, salads and small dishes are fantastic. We always order 4-5 of them and they are quite reasonable. Wait staff are smart, quick, friendly and professional. Our waitress took an order of 12 items without writing anything down and got it all right! We highly recommend this place - we are lucky to have Gyukaku in Philadelphia.

    The service and food was good. The restaurant had not updated their prices on Open Table so things were about 20% more expensive that listed. The manager made no attempt for service recovery. The waiter was very empathetic. Bottom line is go to the restaurant’s website for better pricing information.

    We got the meat lovers package with all 3 upgrades which brings the price to $101 for that package. Tried to upgrade standard chicken karange to the spicy one for $1 more (price difference) but they wouldn't so it. Included salad had too much mayo in it. Chicken karange was really good. Meats were good. However for price would've expected a little more meat.

    We’ve been to different branches of Gyu Kaku and this has to have been the worst. Portion sizes were small. Food was bland. Nothing tasted good- the chicken was so bland that I gagged. We ordered the garlic chicken, teriyaki chicken and I had to use the accompanying sauces to give it some element of flavor whereas in places like Chicago or New York- I had a great experience.

    The experience was overall OK. The A/C was out so they had very large portable units in each room (which worked to keep it cool, but we’re very loud). They were out of their Kirin draft that they feature and out of one half of the spicy comparison special. Logistics are an issue, but it seemed more than that. Hopefully they sort it out.

    Our food was good but a lot of it was very salty. The restaurant was very hot and circulation wasn’t the greatest. What made our overall experience great was the service. Our server was wonderful. Attentive, polite and so very efficient.

    As a lady, while I was using the restroom and locked the door, A MAN came in accidentally as the restaurant locker was not working appropriately and it’s a women and men shared restroom!!! The restroom door locker is defective, and the manager of the restaurant knows it already as when I brought this issue to her, her response is “YEP, THAT LOCKER NEED SOME EXTRA EFFORTS, YOU NEED TO PUSH REALLY HARD to make sure it’s locked, otherwise the locker may seems locked but not indeed”. She didn’t think this is a big issue at all. No apologies at all. Do not go to this restaurant if you ever want to use the restroom safely or if you agree with the value that the restaurant should take care of the customers safety and privacy.

    Delicious and quite expensive place to get your meat sweats on. To get to the restaurant we had to walk by an upscale taco place and an upscale pizza place. Our party decided that at $65 per person for lunch that would’ve been a lot of gourmet tacos. If you love beef and cost isn’t a deterrent this is well worth it.

    Unfortunately, we went when the AC was broke and with no circulation and the heat of the “grill”, it made it tough to enjoy. We ended up doing our best to just cook as fast as we could and ate most at home.

    The service was good. I’m Korean, so I’m used to grilling my own BBQ but the grills were of poor quality. Only half of the grill has any fire or heat. Apparently they had just switched management. I hope the restaurant is off to better days.

    Food and variety was great, atmosphere was fun and lively. and service was awesome! Vivian catered to our every need, and even had the whole gang sing happy birthday to my daughter! What a great night and can't wait to go back and try other things on the menu, especially the desserts. Only things missing were a liquor bar (no BYOB, although they said they're working on the liquor license), later hours, and karaoke :)

    This restaurant has declined in service, professionalism and ambiance. My friend and I had long gaps in service over a dinner that ended up taking 2 1/2 hours to eat. Something is going on with the liquor license so no alcoholic drinks were available. As an alternative to a cocktail, I ordered a bottle of Pellegrino water which arrived warm to the touch - instantly melting all the ice in the glass. The entrance is cluttered where the bar used to be, the whole place seemed unkept.

    Dinner started off a little rough as our grill wasn’t working properly, but both our server, Vivian, and the manager worked very hard to get us to a new table and even gave us a discount for the troubles! We will definitely eat here again. We thank the staff for working so hard through the equipment issues :)
