One of my favourite spots! All of their sauces and marinades (apart from the teriyaki marinade) are gluten free and their menu is very clearly labelled. I let them know I have celiac and they took good care of me. I ordered the prime kalbi short rib, premium sirloin, scallops, broccoli, and plain rice. Love this spot and highly recommend. Definitely always let them know about your allergies/celiac so they can avoid cross contamination.

I was hesitant to do the all-you-can-eat option because there’s usually not enough GF stuff—I was happily proven wrong! Also, the other Gyu-Kaku locations have iffy reviews. I enjoyed my meal and did not get sick. They advertise gluten free sauces, which is a great contrast to the plain meats at any Korean bbq places around. My crew was happy to start with only gluten free items on the grill and save the non-gf stuff for when I was full or needed a break. We kept tongs separate and all was good. A couple appetizers are not gluten free, but I ate plenty. Bonus, the grilling area at your table is sunken (like a Solo Stove) so you don’t leave smelling as much like meat as you normally would. Our server was awesome, knowledgeable, and willing to find answers to questions if they weren’t obvious. The green tea ice cream was gluten free so obviously I had to get that too. Tasted better than i was expecting (Same vibes as lavender ice cream). Overall, would definitely recommend. Need a reservation though!
