“Excellent Yakiniku”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

Love Japanese BBQ and Gyu-Kaku exceeded my expectations. Took a colleague that had only experienced Korean BBQ and he really enjoyed this experience. Excellent service, new looking decor, and food and beer was very enjoyable.

“Fantastic Restaurant!”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

This is a great small restaurant in Tustin. The decor is very stylish, the food is great, the music is good, the service is good, and it's great to cook around a grill that's on the table with friends. It's especially a good deal when you go for Happy Hour which is basically any time except 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm.

“Japanese food Korean style”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

If you like cooking at the table, this could be a fun adventure. Not my idea of a night out of the kitchen. The service was very good and welcoming. The food was tasty but small portions. We ordered 3 appetizers, 2 starters, and one meat dish to share. The meat was probably 4-5 oz at $5.95 additional. If you go on Monday or before 6:30pm you may order off the bar menu where the prices are a little less BUT you must order a minimum of $15 per person. Their combination dinners were $55 for 2. Some dishes are cooked before served so you do not need to cook at your table. Unfortunately in a place like this, no matter how nice, you leave with your clothes smelling of kitchen oils. This is similar to Korean BBQ cooking at the table but without all the relishes & kim chees. For that price and experience, I would prefer to go to an all you can eat Korean BBQ.

“Great food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

I've been to fondue and shabu shabu. This is a japanese restaurant with a grill in front of you. You order meat, fish or veggies and cook on the grill. The gyoza was fantastic, the garlic shrimp really good. My favorite was the butterfish. My husband does not like fish and he thought it was fantastic.
Beware, you can order too much food and it will get pricey. Order small, you can always order more, not like they have to cook it for you! Go for happy hour, to save money on food and drinks!
