Long wait, great food – Ok, I did have problems with a two hour wait for a table and the perfunctory service we received after the wait, but all was forgotten and forgiven once we started eating - the food was incredible. Be prepared for a long wait, simple surroundings, and basic service, but the food is definitely worth it
Loved it! – When you go to Brother's, be prepared to leave smelling like food. My friends and I had the BBQ. Their prices are a little cheaper and I feel they give you more food than some of the other Korean Restaurants in the city. The restaurant itself isn't all that nice, but I like places like these. It seems more authentic. The service there isn't as good as other Korean Restaurants, but the food was really good! I'm still searching for my favorite Korean Restaurant.
Eating late? This place is great! – Tabletop Korean-style BBQ is recommended. Soups are tastey without the MSG aftertaste. The red vinyl chairs are reminscent of a Chinese restaurant than Korean, but this place delivers on service and food. Even at 11:00 PM on a Tuesday night they happily seat you with a smile. Now that's what I call service!
Excellent BBQ and Friendly Service – The bbq pork, chicken, and beef were so flavorful. The pan fried fish was also delicious. We ordered the stone rice pots, also very tasty. The staff there were very friendly. They gave us a free order of soup and a plate of noodles. Be prepared to smell like charcol smoke afterwards, but the food is worth it.
Great food at a great price! – This place is by far one of the best Korean resturants in town! The place itself is basic, plain and simple. But the food rocks! The kimchee and veggies are always fresh. The tofu soup there is good too but remember to specify level of spicyness! I have tried everything and it is all good. Only con is that its always packed with families and large and small crowds.
Eau de BBQ – Would recommend making reservations on the weekend. Even with 6pm reservations, we had to wait for our table. The place was packed. You leave with a full tummy, smelling like BBQ for the rest of the evening. We ordered 4 plates - 2 Kal Bi, 1 Gol Bi and Shrimp Tempura. The beef dishes were well-marinated and tasty. The tempura came with a thick batter (I prefer a lighter batter) with huge portions compared to Japanese restaurants. We ordered a dumpling soup which we could've passed on. The restaurant gave us a vermicelli dish on the house. The meal came with about 10 or more sm side dishes, pickled vegts, spicy tofu, bean sprouts, lettuce, seaweed, dried sm fish. You have the option of cooking it over charcoal at your table (if sitting at one of the BBQ tables) or having the kichen cook for you.
Packed w/ energy and smells! – Wednesday night - 6:15 dinner, party of 10. Thank goodness for reservations! This place was bumping when we walked in at 6 pm and left at 7:30 pm. We had beef, pork, squid, pancakes, and chop chae family style! Great place for large groups, but be warned that your clothes will definitely have a lingering scent once you leave this establishment.
my favorite Korean place in SF – This place is stupendous. Ever wondered how much meat you can really eat all at once? Head over to Brother's. We went in a large group, and had a hard time keeping the owner from bringing us extra sodas and side dishes (on the house) to go with our beer and barbequed meats. This is a real family place. Don't miss out!
some of the best korean bbq in the city – i'm not sure if those people who wrote the bad reviews went to the same place i've been going to for almost 10 years. the service can be slow but what do you expect when your packed (hence the wait) but the food is great and the sides have always been bottomless. it's just as good as i ate growing up. even my mom liked it.
Go for lunch. – The best time to go is during lunch time, because after lunch, the prices are too high for what you get. But if the food was extremely to die for, I probably wouldn't care about the price. The BBQ is okay, but it is certainly nothing to rave about.
