Probably one of my best experiences at a Korean bar! The flavor of the meat was excellent, and all the side dishes were great! Loved the tofu soup that came with our meal too.

One of my favorite korean restuarants in the city. I've been to korean many times so this restaurant does serve very authentic dishes.

If the original Brothers restaurant is too busy, go down a block and check out Brothers II (same owners). Smaller and quieter atmosphere, but the food is the same quality and top notch.

A lot of times, the wait is waaay shorter for this restaurant, but the food is just as excellent too. Moreover, the service is actually so much better because I suppose they have to kick it up a notch to be the same or better than the orig so they can bring something else to the table. so EXCELANTE, the customer wins on this one, all the way!

BTW, I also wrote a review on Brother's Korean I (or the orig).

It does not deserve a single star. Cannot give any rating with a clear conscience.

The worst Korean food anywhere. It is an insult to Korean cuisine.

Highly over-rated. I wonder who has been rating this restaurant. Perhaps the owner's friends and/or relatives?

Previously rated as the best Kalbi in town, it did not come even close to mediocre. The Bulgogi was dry and flavorless.

No heat and our request for heat was turned down with a smile by the waitress.

Lacks any form of ambience.

Since we were two of only four customers at the time, there was plenty of waiting staff but no proper service. We weren't offered any drinks nor was the tea refilled.

Maybe the other Brothers Restaurant might be better but I am not about to find out.

Save your time and money. Stay away from this place.

Pros: None

Cons: Cold interior - no heat. Consequently, the food got cold fast. Dry, flavorless Bulgogi. Semi-professional service.

There are two Brothers restaurants within three blocks of each other. We have been told that only Brothers 2 has the grills where you can cook it yourself. Order and within 60 seconds you have over a dozen sides in front of you. Hot coals are brought to your grill followed quickly by the meat-- and HAVE AT IT!!! If you go during peak meal periods you have to fight for a table... finally had to pipe up when people started trying to take our table (no one was taking names and the lobby was packed). Go during the afternoon!!! Everytime we've gone we've gotten 1-2 items "on the house." Last time Grandpa came out of the back with sodas for everyone at the table. Can get pricy, just know that if you go at the right time, a lot of freebies may be included!!

Pros: BBQ Yourself Option, Great Family Feel, Great Food

Cons: Can get crowded, Leave smelling like B

Lots of food and a great flavor. I think the pork has more flavor than the beef, but both were good. They give tons of sides as soon as you are seated which may take some time, but is worth the wait.

Service was great and friendly, we are not Korean and we were treated nicely by everyone there. Food was great, lots of sides, definitely enough for two people. $41.00 for two entrees, a bunch of sides, soup, and 1 large beer. Would return again

Pros: tasty, bbq your own

Cons: parking, can be crowded

Editorial from

The second outpost of Brother's serves the overflow of customers from the original location just a block away. Here, the wait for a table may be more manageable, but the Korean barbecue, jap chae and spicy soups served in sizzling iron…
