About Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ
Gyu-Kaku is a “yakiniku” restaurant that was originally developed by Rex Holdings Japan. Translated, “Gyu-Kaku” means “Horn of the Bull” in Japanese. As one of the largest restaurant operators in Japan, Rex Holdings Japan developed the Gyu-Kaku system of restaurant operating techniques and methods in the mid 1990s and expanded throughout Japan. Gyu-Kaku has since been advanced and modified for the U.S. market. Gyu-Kaku offers customers the opportunity to cook various cuts of beef, pork, poultry, seafood, vegetables and desserts on the specially designed in-table roasters that are designed to vent smoke through forced air openings built into the roaster. The internal vents are designed to reduce the amount of smoke and odor that may be emitted in the restaurant or transferred to customers’ clothes. The menu also includes a variety of alcoholic (including “sake”, or Japanese rice wine) and non-alcoholic drinks.
