“Good food, not so good services”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

This place is located in scbd area which i thpught would be easy finding it. Its not. I call the restaurant asking where the exact place and said it was behind automall, but since im not that familiar yet with jakarta so i ask if its in the lot 8, she said yes. So i went to lot 8 scbd and found none, after circle around i found out that it is in lot 6, quite secluded place, oh well not the easiest place to found.

When we arrive, we are greeted and seated but only i ask about 3 times. Ok i know you people is busy and thats why i ask for which table we could sit on. Fine

We order the food, japchae and kimchi jigae. It was quick and at good taste. But thats it. Nothing too special. I want to order some pork but the waiter only said not available when i actually knew that they do provide it , i just order kimchi jigae and thats with pork. And i also happen to know that gahyo kelapa gading serve pork... Thats why i ask here. But oh well the service is quite disappointing.

Good korean standard food, good atmosphere, not so easy to find the restaurant for the first time , all that was okay. I know this place is busy but it doesn't mean you treat your customers like you just want them to eat and go. In my op the waiters need to be more properly train.

“Yummy korean foods, authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013

I have eaten at Gahyo a few times. The meats are well marinated and yummy. The sidedishes are quite in variety and delicious. The price is quite reasonable, I think. And at the end of the meals, you can ask for the ice coffee or the ginger drinks that are both quite refreshing.

“Korean food suitable with local indo taste”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

Crowded especially nightime and weekend, better book first. Great korean barbeque restaurant, a bit pricey but worth the money.

“Go to place for intestines”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2013

As far as Korean restaurants in Jakarta go, Gahyo is among the pricier ones. With the place being packed every single night, the quality of the food speaks for itself. As far as grilled meats are concerned, I think there's better to be found at BornGa (beef) and Ham Ji Bak (pork) but no where else satisfies my craving for daechang (대창), the cow's large intestine, which comes marinated in a sweet soy sauce. Pair that with either a beer or soju and you've got the ingredients of a good night out.

“Definitely not returning”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013

I used to be a silent reader of tripadvisor restaurant review and thanks to this bad experience after dinner at Gahyo last week, I decided to write a review. Gahyo SCBD had been my to-go restaurant, everytime we treated our Korean business customers. So, last week I visited Gahyo with my partner, and also to have casual dinner to celebrate our 4th anniversary (it was his first Korean BBQ experience). We made a reservation at 6:30 PM and arrived earlier at 6:15 PM, and seated on a tatami table. All went well until at around 7 PM, the place started to get packed, and ppl started to line up. Among other guests there, the waiter and waitress decided trying every single way to kick us out of the place, before we even finished. They even kept on cleaning up our table, putting the bill right on our face and said we needed to pay it, while we were still finishing our bottle of shoju. We finally decided to leave, because it got too unpleasant and ..rude. FYI, I did go to Gahyo about three weeks before, with my Korean colleague, at the same hour, ordered exactly the same meals (short ribs) and sho-ju, spent hours chatting, and did NOT get this terrible treatment. Well, enough saying, I definitely will not return. I already passed this experience to my other office colleagues.
