Excellent, authentic Japanese Yakiniku (BBQ). Beautiful presentations, servers and friendly and knowledgeable. If its your first time get a set course menu and get a taste of everything. Very friendly pricing too.

---> NOT SUSHI! --> NOT AYCE Korean!

Happy hour all day Monday and from 4 til 6:30 other days. There is a super happy hour with even bigger discounts after 11pm!

I go there once or twice every time I visit Vegas, and that's bout once a month. It's pretty close to the strip, but you can't walk to it! LOL
West on Spring Mountain Rd (that's where The Wynn and the Venetian are) then left on Decatur. Easy to find if you are driving or take a cab.

On our last trip to Las Vegas, we were treated to a very unique dining experience before we flew back to NC later that night!

You are seated at a large table and in the center of the table is a built-in small grill!

You order your food from a menu, but when they bring it to you, it is cooked by someone in your group, who is given the title of "Master Griller!"

Each dish is served un-cooked and you are told how long to cook each item so it will be done perfectly before your Master Griller puts it on your plate.

Of course, this takes time, but you have things to nibble on and drink while you wait and unless you are in a hurry, it's a lot of fun...not to mention the food is delicious!

We had a really fun time and have never experienced anything like that before and we are both over 56! We really wish they would open up a restaurant like this in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC, area, as it would be fantastic to do this again!

If we ever return to Vegas again, however...it will be on our "must do" list!

I had a group dinner after a workshop. We ordered a course, which include bistro hanger steak miso, filet mignon ponzu, N.Y.steak miso, premium sirloin tare, yaki-shabu miso, kobe beef, and some other that I cannot remember the names. All the marinated beef dish taste the same. Maybe it is miso-based. To me, they were all a bit salty. The rice was a bit dry. I liked the draft beer.
The restaurant requests customers to show up 5 min before the reservation time.
Due to its lact of complex tastes, I would go to Korean BBQ, Gangnam.

Gyu Kaku is a chain restaurant that specializes in Japanese BBQ where you grill your own meats table side. There are a variety of delicious meats and sides to choose from a la carte, or you can order a dinner set which is slightly cheaper.

For starters I ordered the fried bacon chips, good but a bit salty even without the salt on the side. I also ordered garlic bimbimbap to share. It was so delicious that we had to order another one. For the side veggies, broccoli and mushroom medley which are served with butter wrapped in tin foil to grill. The kimchee was pretty standard.

For the meat selections, I ordered the Japanese sausages served with whole grain mustard for dipping which were pretty good. Also Kalbi short ribs, filet mignon, toro beef and the spicy pork were delicious. The garlic shrimp was way too salty, too much garlic salt! There are also 3 different dipping sauces for your meat to choose from - sweet soy, ponzu and spicy.

The restaurant has an app for you to earn points from your bill so that you can redeem them for entrees in the future. We had a great dining experience here and will definitely come back again.
