Been here many times. Most of the sauces are now GF and the staff has been spot on as I have had extremely tasty dishes with zero issues.

The menu clearly marks GF items. They also said all marinades and table sauces are GF. They were also good at being able to do plain veggies without butter for our dairy allergy. Our server wasn’t knowledgeable unfortunately but did go check in the kitchen with our questions. The food was delicious. TBD if it’s celiac friendly and if I get sick from any kind of cross contamination.

Good food and service. All of their sauces are now gf. I never feel great about their answers when I inquire about gluten, regardless of who my server is, they always have to ask someone else. But their servers are friendly and always happy to find the answers they don’t have.

Lots of GF options clearly indicated on the menu. Staff was knowledgeable. All the meats you grill at the table are GF except the chicken, as are the sauces. Great happy hour drink prices. Fun restaurant with great service. Make a reservation, it gets crowded.

The food was very good, most of their marinades are gluten free. They were kind enough to alter the fried rice to make it gluten free. I didn’t get sick and I’m extremely sensitive.

First time going to Gyu Kaku! I had such a great experience. Everyone was aware of what had gluten and what didn’t. Most of the marinades are gf except 1. Definitely will be going back.

I previously gave this place 3 stars but am going to up it to 4 because they’ve recently introduced gluten free marinades and sauces. That means almost all of their meats can be ordered with GF marinade. Most other things on the menu aren’t gluten free, other than the white rice and edamame. Even the salad dressing has gluten in it, and a lot of the appetizers are fried. However, it’s a super fun place to go as a group and everyone really leaves happy. The only issue is the language barrier. Some of the servers speak English perfectly, others it’s clearly a second language for them. It can be a little daunting when you can’t be 100% sure they understood you and your allergy. However, the last time I went we had a server who didn’t seem very knowledgeable about gluten, but after I ordered she came back and told me how one item I ordered wasn’t actually gluten free. That made me feel a little better, she saved me from a lot of pain later! Overall, if you’re going here with a group, rest assured you can find something to eat without stressing too much.

Most of the sauces were safe, just be careful with the shared cooking surfaces.

Very sad, we went back today for the second time. Ordered only one steak marinade and explained in detail to the server who understood completely, go checked with the kitchen , she said it was safe. 3 plates of the same steak later manager comes out and tells us the server gave us the marinade with gluten. I mean what... And yes I’m feeling it now

The gluten-free options are a little confusing on the menu, but ask your server for help. Basically, half of the meat options can be done without marinade and seasoned with salt and pepper instead. They are still great cuts of meat. Then you cook the meat at your table, and they have several gluten-free dipping sauces to choose from. Some sides are gluten-free (rice, veggies), and they have mochi for dessert!

Place is amazing. If you are at the Beverly Hills location ask for Mark. He’s my go to guide for the gluten free world of Gyu-kaku. The sweet soy and spicy soy on the table are gluten free (don’t touch the ponzu). Also you can order meats and chicken without the marinade. The salt and pepper and basal marinades are gluten free. Love this place. Mark, as always you are my homeboy.
