We enjoyed the Korean BBQ at Brother's. It felt authentic and it was fun to taste all of the side dishes and enjoy the chicken and beef. I wish we had gone with more than 2 people so we could have tried more dishes. A fun spot to check out in San Francisco.

Every time I got into SF late, I always know that this restaurant will be open, I have been to this restaurant for couple years, good food and service is fast, wish they have more servers, cause some times you have to walk away from your table to the register to ask what you need, but most of all, pretty...

Confession: I got to Korean restaurants for the banchan as much as for the main dishes. And this place has a great selection. My mother and I were served at least 8-9 different dishes. And it seemed like they were willing to bring out seconds on them if you asked. We didn't--there was plenty of food for the two of... More

A fun experience that everyone should try. Excellent food. Try to make it there every time I am in SF. You cook your own food on a grill in the middle of the table.

We came here just after they opened at 5pm, so service was impeccable since we were only one of 3 tables. Being Korean, I have been to many Korean restaurants and this was one of my favorite places ever. My husband had never been to a Korean restaurant where you cook your own meat at the table and he loved... More

The interior leaves a little to be desired--rug! No decor! Exposed ventilation! But you'll be paying so much attention to the food it won't matter. My boyfriend is Korean and used to frequent Brothers when he lived in San Fran many years ago. It's just as delicious as he describes. The kalbi was perrrrrfectly marinated and juicy after grilling. We... More

Needed to get a late dinner and was looking for something with a little kick. Here it was three blocks away. A huge amount of food for 19.95 -- I got the pork. With the fire grills and the food, this will surely be a spot a take a small gathering to next time.

It was my first time having Korean BBQ and I really enjoyed it. The pork and beef were really flavorful and tangy. We didn't have the ribs so I can't comment on them. The seafood pancake was delicous and the other side dishes were really tasty. We couldn't finish all the food and the prices were reasonable. The atmosphere is... More

The food here is definitely on the sweet side, and not all that refined. Nonetheless, it's authentic Korean barbecue, done on real charcoal on your table, and the service has always been enthusiastic, if a bit matronly. The price-performance is hard to beat. Strongly recommended. It can get crowded at peak times, but we've been there on weekdays after 8... More

The last couple of reviews are spot on so I won't repeat everything they said. I have been coming to Brother's for at least the last 20 years. It is a family owned place and they can have an attitude if they think you have one, but we ate there tonight with our two children and they could not have... More
