We visited this place late night on our first stay in SF. Thanks to yelp. Great first time experience on Korean BBQ. The restaurant is basic and simple. Be aware of smoky BBQ. An nice place to be with friends and enjoy grilling indoors. A must try!

We ordered a variety of foods for $260 through Doordash as the reviews tended to say that the restaurant itself is rather smoky and when leaving, one reeks of smoke. Well, the food was neither smoky nor aromatic. There were some good dishes, tripe stew, kalbi, and broiled king fish were OK, though not in any way standing out. The... More

The kids absolutely loved Brother's, and so did I. It's hard to go wrong when you have marinated meats and mesquite coals at your table. We ate kalbi and bulgogi, and loved every bite. Your table gets filled with a wide assortment of Korean condiments ranging from sesame spinach to kimchee, which help round out your meal.

Delicious. If your looking for a place with great ambiance, then this isn't it. But if you're looking for great food then this is the spot.

Have been to this place several times over the years and happy to find it hasn't changed on our recent visit. We enjoy Korean BBQ at home and like that at this place you cook your own meal and do not have a server managing everything for you at the table. On prior visits have experienced larger crowds and were... More

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
