Love this place. My Korean friend never likes to eat Korean food as she's used to better at home. This place is the only place she is willing to go. They used to have a self serve for the ban chan but took that away unfortunately.

To my surprise finally a good place to get some Korean food. From where I come from ,we have so much Korean restaurants . That it's very hard to find good ones anywhere else . This place is kind of a small place . So gets full pretty quick , especially if you come in a large group. Loved the bachan great assortment and fresh too . The tofu soup and onion pancake was up to par for what I'm used to. The fried chicken came out pipping hot which I loved. The chicken was juicy which was great, some places have super dry Korean chicken wings .

One of the best, if not best, Korean spots in SSF. Good tofu soup and good kalbi, bulgogi, etc.

Low key lunch or dinner spot in SSF. Definitely come here for either the soft tofu soups (their specialty) or the lunch bento specials. As with other Korean places, the banchan side dishes are complementary. There are about 6-8 different banchans, and sometimes they throw in a complementary kimchi pancake. For lunch, the banchan is buffet style, so you can grab as much as you want (but don't be wasteful!).Their lunch special bentos are a good size, with a protein + rice, japchae noodles, a dumpling, buffet style banchan, and a small miso soup. Definitely a great place for lunch, though it's small, so it's best to go with a group of 6 people or less.

Great tasting Korean food in the SSF / Daly City area. Place is small and gets crowded during lunch and dinner. There is usually a wait. Mom's serves a tasty veggie pancake as a complimentary appetizer. I usually order the bibimbap in the stone bowl and have the waitress refresh the banchan (small dishes) at least twice, during dinner at a minimum of three times. We come here only during the weekends. Their parking lot is usually full so we end up parking across the street, putting quarters in the meter during lunch.

How I miss having a go-to Korean place around the corner. This isn't exactly around the corner from me, but I think it's my new guilty pleasure! The restaurant is small but has plenty of tables. Turnaround is really fast so you don't have to wait too long to get a seat. It was packed on a Thursday night at 8pm. Lots of banchan and you get a small sized veggie pancake for free too. Service is awesome. We got 2 tofu soups and 1 kalbi. The kalbi was great and came first. It was a heaping pile! The tofu soup left something to be desired. I like that they give you an egg (some places don't give you one!). But I asked for medium spicy and it wasn't spicy at all. The broth was very thin and not that flavorful. Maybe that's just how they make it versus other places? I don't know. (Free parking is awesome.)

Mom's Tofu House is a small little Korean restaurant tucked away on Grand Ave...with some great Korean dishes! I usually come here during my lunch break from work, and as long as you get there before noon, you'll be able to get a seat and a table without a wait. Once the clock strikes noon however, the people from the surrounding areas start trickling in, and before you know it, you're hit with a mass of people on their lunch break, all waiting for a seat and table. If you get there after noon, you might have to wait a bit before getting a table. The best part about this place is that the mini Korean side dishes (kimchi, fish cake, salad, potatoes, etc.) are all placed together in a side bar area. This side bar area is self serve and you can refill your own plate as many times as you want. Along with the unlimited side dishes, I usually also order a spicy beef soon dubu (beef tofu soup) which comes with an egg (crack it open and throw it in your soup) and a small bowl of steamed white rice. There are 5 levels of spiciness, and I find the 4th level (spicy) to be the most optimal. Anything more than the 4th level is too spicy to be enjoyable. Prices are relatively cheap (as far as Korean places go), and the service is quick and friendly. I would definitely recommend this place for lunch!
