Best food in town
Food is amazing. Every time I come here, I feel like I never want to leave. Very chic atmosphere with a relaxing mood.
The service is great and the staff really does a terrific job at taking care of you.
The appetizers are delicious.
Theres plenty of places to park: theres a parking lot across the street and a parkin garage up the street within walking distance.
Most of the time I find myself looking at my watch waiting for the food to come, but here I was so entertained with the fun atmosphere that I was pleasantly surprised when my food arrived
Not bad, too expensive – I could eat sushi for breakfast lunch and dinner.. Brothers is good, but the wait made the experience a little lame. Everybody talks about this sushi being fresh and I tend to agree regarding the fish, but I thought the rice was not quite up to par. The staff was friendly, (sushi bar) and the service was good, but for the money and the long wait, I might investigate other places before I return.
Over-rated; over-priced – Read the review -- so I wanted to try the place out. Have heard great things about Brother Sushi for many years, and finally got the chance to go. Bad idea.
My order -- tuna sashimi and tuna roll -- was very mediocre. Main complaint: it was definitely NOT fresh -- the tuna was dark and warm and the IKURA, especially, arrived to the table with a residual, cloudy look and was warm and soft -- not fresh and firm and clear as it should be. The wait staff was sluggish and non-responsive. Sweet shrimp was okay -- but not worth the enormous prices they're charging for it.
The place is mediocre at best. Atmosphere was predictable and had a cheap, cheesy feeling.
Also -- notice that all the 4-star reviews are old. There's clearly something that has changed in this place. So many people couldn't be wrong. Don't bother with thiis place. Drive a little. Find something that is worth the $$,
Have heard the hype. Quality is not what it should be. Troubling: there was a fishy warm odor to the place. Definite disappointment. This was a downer. Even the chicken teriyaki had a frozen, veiny quality. Got the feeling that they were having refrigeration issues. I hope this isn't what the Valley consider good sushi. You'd be better off with a leancuisine.
Prices were outrageous for the quality: 110 bucks for three people. Pass.
These reviews are dead on: Excellent Sushi! – This is just down the street from my work (lucky me) and I had been reading some reviews this week for local sushi places, and this one really stood out. Now I know why: It's excellent.
Very fresh fish, daily specials were great, chef was very friendly, handled special requests with a smile.
Can't recommend this place enough!
Best Sushi! – This is my wife's favorite place. Been to some fancy, high-falutin' sushi places like Nobu New York, that sushi nazi guy in LA, etc., but they don't compare to Brother Sushi-- seriously.
and you don't need to be (or pretend to be) a sushi connoisseur. They will serve you what you want, the way you like it. if you don't know, just ask the chef, and he'll whip you up something delicious. you can get authentic sushi if you are a purist, you can get natto and ankimo if you feel adventurous, or get funky Americanized roll if that's your thing. unpretentious, fun, and simply delicious!
Best Sushi in the Valley – I've been coming here since my young'n days. It's a small hole in the wall in the SFV that offers fresh sushi. For non-sushi eaters, try to Kerri cut roll, or the garlic shrimp roll.
Otherwise, there torro, yellowtail, tuna and salmon always seems fresh.
On top of that, they have by far the best tempura fried ice cream!!!! Unlike other places where the ice cream is melting, the flaky and crusty tempura later is sizzling hot, while the ice cream is frozen like a block of ice.
Make a reservation though!
don't listen to the 'disappointing' comment – I've been going to Brothers Sushi for 18 years, and they are hands down the best sushi i've had in America. I've been to Japan and i must say that Brothers is on par in terms of quality of fish and service. The person who made the 'disappointing' comment probably thinks that she is a "sushi expert" for loving crunchy tempura rolls, california rolls, and MAYBE EVEN EEL ON TOP, Don't listen to that. If you're a true fan of sushi and enjoy it more than just rolls, then you will love brothers sushi. The sweet shrimp there are incredibly large and fresh (living right up to the moment they're served) and the giant clam sashimi is amazing. The quality of fish like salmon, kampachi, yellowtail, etc rises above all other places and has great flavor.
The roles they do offer are unique and aren't run of the mill california roll variations. Try the Kerry Roll and the Linda Roll and you won't be disappointed. Don't listen to people who don't know a thing about sushi =/
Always fresh sushi – This place is as good as everybody says. If you want rolls, just ask the Chefs for the book where they have all the rolls written up. Try "Rich Taco" this is a very tasty roll. Also the seared garlic Tuna. The price is not more than any other good sushi place, but the fish is much moore fresh than many sushi restaurants. Highly recommended
disappointing – after i read all the great reviews on this place, my boyfriend and i decided to check it out since we LOVE sushi. we were SO disappointed! there were only a few "unique" rolls to choose from and out of the 3 that we got, we only liked 1 of them. the 2 that we didnt like had no flavor to them. it was also on the expensive side. if i had to say one good thing about it- the fish was fresh. when we left the only thing we could think was what a waste of money it was and how we should have stuck to our usual sushi place. we pulled into the nearest coldstone so that we could eat at least ONE tasty thing that night!
yum yum – brothers sushi is all about freshness. the fish melts in your mouth and is hand picked by the owner himself who is a sweetheart. you must try the paul roll not only is a burst of flavor, but the presentation is beautiful as well.
