About This Deal

Grills bring flavor and fun to the lives of a wide range of people types, including suburban dads, television chefs, and international hip-hop ultra-star Xcalade. Get your fill of the grill with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Japanese cuisine at either New York location of Gyu-Kaku. The authentic eatery has locations in both Midtown and the East Village.

For lunch, design your own dish with a yakiniku grilling set. Try the U.S. Kobe beef set ($22), which includes 3.5-ounce portions of both Harami skirt steak and chuck rib. For non-grillers, the garlic-noodles bowl (from $8) or hot-stone-pot bibimbap (from $8) side well with an order of Kurosawa cold sake ($9). The dinner menu includes everything from grilled veggies such as fresh asparagus ($5), broccoli ($4), or garlic button mushrooms ($4) to spicy Chilean sea bass ($15). Noodle dishes including goma negi ramen or udon ($9) and chicken garlic noodles ($10) round out the menu. For dessert, save room for dorayaki ice cream ($6), in which ice cream is sandwiched between two fluffy pancakes. View complete menus for the Midtown and the East Village locations here.

Sultry mood lighting casts a seductive feel against the modern décor. Gyu-Kaku boasts more than 700 locations worldwide and is skilled in the art of sizzle. The expansive menu allows diners to get creative with dishes and satisfy a wide range of cravings. Redeem your Groupon for lunch or dinner.


Time Out New York and New York magazine both recommend Gyu-Kaku:

  • At Gyu-Kaku, a bustling cook-it-yourself, California-based chain restaurant, Korean barbecue gets the Japanese makeover. Sauces are sweeter and milder; vegetables and delicate seafood come wrapped in easy-to-grill foil packets. Dominoes of harami skirt steak, marinated in sweet dark miso, turn caramelized and succulent on the hot grill. A quick sear of the fat-veined Kobe kalbi yields unctuous, buttery bites enhanced by the house’s soy-based tare sauce. – Ganda Suthivarakom, New York
  • Gyu-kaku...looks like the ideal spot for a group dinner party: a slickly designed, dark-wood-covered space where you can throw an indoor barbecue with all the fixins...The meats were exceptional—namely the deliciously salty, marbled kobe and marinated lamb chops. – Time Out New York

Citysearchers give the Midtown location 4.5 stars, and 84% of Urbanspooners like it. More than 200 Yelpers give four stars to the East Village spot:
