We have dined in Gyu-kaku in Cupertino, Chicago and Hong Kong. All three are excellent. Despite traffic in South Bay, we still come here for odd-hour lunch or early dinner, before the crowds. Happy Hours are a must to get favorable prices. All the beef cuts are great, including our favorite beef tongue. No pork belly though. Service is good and the grill is changed a couple of times or if you ask. The place is clean and very popular with the young generation.

My spouse and I were invited by another couple to try this restaurant. You will need a reservation and with that said we waited 15 minutes for a table to be cleared. The booths were a bit small for our group of four. There is a gas powered grill in the middle of the table and you will need to cook your items.

We ordered the Meat Lovers meal for four. This included rice (small portion for 2), edamame (smaller portion for two), miso soup (which our server forgot to bring out earlier in the course) Gyu-Kaku (plain garden salad), fried chicken Karaage, garlic shrimp (very good), but the New York Steak Miso and the Bistro Hanger Steak Miso were excellent choices and I would recommend ordering more if you're a meat lover!

Service was okay, but we did visit on a Saturday. I would return again and recommend this restaurant.

Nothing exceptional but a good late night find. Prices are reasonable in happy hour. The ladies do their best to serve. Don't order cheap sake.

The one thing I tell everyone about Gyu-kaku, if your food isn't good you have no one to blame but yourself!

Think of this as fondue with a bbq grill. You order either a course menu or a la carte then cook all of the food yourself. They have an excellent selection of meats, all of high quality and tasty cuts. The appetizers are delicious as well. There is also a small selection of vegetables, but believe me this is not a restaurant for vegetarians, you'll leave hungry.

The service is always attentive they will regularly offer to change your grill and refill your drinks.

The only drawback is that it is rather expense, the cheapest course menu is $55 for two people and they go up from there. They do have some affordable lunch specials however. They also have happy hour pricing that takes a few dollars off of many of the dishes.

It's expensive but worth it! Our server was excellent despite how busy the restaurant was over the Christmas holidays.
