Rooted in the historic Moore Square Park in downtown Raleigh, Brewery Bhavana is a gathering place celebrating communal beer experiences that exhibit the hand of the maker. Brewery, dim sum restaurant, flower shop, and bookstore, Bhavana is our love letter to a community that has given us so much.
We look forward to seeing you!
Didn't disappoint second time around, beers are excellent and good is delicious, impeccable preparation. Beautiful Shane and ambiance only adds to the experience of BB.
The food and service was superb as always. Decor and ambiance was outstanding as well. You know you have been somewhere special when you leave with a really happy mouth and tummy.
Great food and experience. Need a bit of help with ac, was quite warm.
Always great staff and service.
Good food. Reservations can be difficult at times, but overall a great experience.
Wonderful casual restaurant for special occasions or just a lovely lunch any day. The food is outstanding, and the service friendly and efficient. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a
delicious meal in a friendly and comfortable spot.
Always Great Service. Good food and nice atmosphere
Had been interested in trying for awhile but was difficult to book a dinner reservation at a time we were interested in dining, so we went for lunch. The interior was clean and nice. The layout with a shop, library, and dining area was a different experience from most other restaurants.
Ordered edamame dumplings for a starter and server kindly gifted some chicken dumplings when my wife was concerned about liking the filling of what we had ordered. The dumplings were good and the gesture was appreciated. I wanted to try multiple items so I ordered duck eggrolls and the scallion pancakes instead of a larger entree. Both were good, but I wouldn't describe either as meeting expectations based on price or perception of the quality of the establishment. There was no complexity or balance to the flavor - kind of one note.
I would likely dine again if my wife or someone else suggested it, but there are other options in Raleigh that I prefer.
Wife as nd myself go here often and love the food, beer, and atmosphere. Recommend this place to anyone who is in Raleigh and looking for as great dining experience
for a wednesday night it was really crowded. Waiting 15 mins past our res time to be seated, but it was fun looking around. Hostess was sharp, finding us and knowing the name. Waitress was patient, informative and fun. Food was great. Small plates filled us more than we expected. Bill was pretty reasonable. would def go again.
I just want to say my waitress was AMAZING!! That alone made me want to return. The food was delicious, and worth all of the reviews I’ve heard. Just come to spend your coins, because the food is pricey. I will definitely be returning!!
Had been wanting to go for a while. Met a friend for lunch who also had been wanting to try BB also. Wow! The beer and food were superb! And our server Emily could not have been more pleasant, helpful, and knowledgeable. BB is truly a star in the Raleigh restaurant scene.
Such a great meal. I made a reservation before getting into town and will be back again and recommend to everyone I know that might be in the area. Great food and ambiance!
I don't think you could order anything wrong off this menu. I've been here several times and it is consistently delicious with fantastic service. highly recommend!
Best restaurant I’ve been in a while. Food was delicious, the decor was super nice and the service was outstanding. Definitely going back there soon.
This is becoming our favorite place for special occasions. Treated really well on our anniversary. One thing I would like is more food menu options, but even so everything is delicious. Excellent and varied beer options.
Excellent, high quality dim sum but be prepared to pay the price. Entrees could be a little more varied for patrons who don’t particularly care for spicy food or fish. Felt a little over dressed as the reservation said “business casual” and many were in t-shirts and flip flops. Not many in nice dresses and shirts.
Birthday celebration for my husband, 1 free birthday heer!!!
Food was incredible, space is very beautiful, but it is very loud and we went on a summer night and it was VERY hot inside. May not be the best place to take fussy kids or grandparents but 3 people had many plates and several drinks and the bill was only 130. A wonderful place I wish I could eat at every day!
We love this place. We always bring our put of town guests here dine.
I came her with my mother, who has both shellfish and mushroom allergies, and my partner who is a vegetarian. Our waitress was fantastic and gave us a list of the items she could eat safely. We enjoyed the chicken dumplings, curry chicken bao, vegetable curry puffs and the edamame ginger dumplings. Every dish was amazing. 5 small plates were enough to satisfy us, but we weren’t “full.” It was an excellent meal but it was pricey for everyday.
The atmosphere was beautiful. I enjoyed their Pilsner and service was excellent. I would recommend for a special occasion or special event. Definitely make a reservation at least a week in advance, it fills up quickly. We arrived when they opened at 5 for our 5:30 reservation and the bar was already packed and the restaurant tables were full by 5:20.
Had a few beers and they were very interesting, and good. Food was pretty mild. The place was kinda loud.
This is just a great place to dine. The atmosphere is casual and welcoming. The food is delicious and the beers are great. This was my third visit and I will be back again!
Love this restaurant! The food is out of this world
Once again, Brewery Bhavana did not disappoint! We ate dinner here for my husbands birthday and everything from food to service was amazing. We also really appreciated the complimentary local cupcake provided for his birthday, it was a nice touch to the end of our meal.
The ambiance, the food, our server were all exceptional!! I cannot wait to go back!
This was our second time dining at Brewery Bhavana and we had an amazing time! Our waiter was simply phenomenal. The way he described the menu really brought the meal to life and made you anticipate the flavors before you even tasted the food. His curation of the experience was A1!! We stuck with one favorite from our first experience (chicken curry bao) but then tried three new items (vegetable curry puffs, sweet soy chicken and beef with longhorn peppers). The beef was magnificent! To top things off, the Chinese Old Fashioned was a good remix of a classic drink. We can’t wait to come again!
BB is consistently great! We don’t get to dine there as often as we would like, but it doesn’t disappoint when we come. I love the beer selection is steadily growing. We took home a bunch of beers too. It’s great way to spend an evening.
Wonderful brunch as always. Service and food are always beyond top notch. My favorite place to eat in Raleigh hands down!
It was great ! Only change would be the waitress could check a few less times on how we ware doing. The conversation was interrupted several times to tell her all was well.
Food and atmosphere is amazing! Green bean appetizer is delicious! Cocktail called “They Thems” is my new favorite drink!
Always a favorite - great food and great service in a beautiful setting
Brewery Bhavana was absolutely wonderful. We've been trying to make it to this restaurant for months (not for lack of reservations, but because of busy schedules) and it was well worth the wait! The beers were delicious and full of flavor. Our server was a delight and was not overbearing, but still managed to be there at all the right times. The food was OUTSTANDING! Just so delicious and not bland at all. We cannot wait to go back!
Service was outstanding! Food was fresh and very flavorful!
Delicious beer and food! Great time sharing small plates with friends.
Simply the best food in Raleigh.
The food was delish!! Our waiter was great. Always an enjoyable experience all around
Wonderful! Best dumplings ever!! We loved our expirience we will definitely be back!
Ambiance was perfect. The food was good. Our waiter was very attentive. Overall, would highly recommend. It’s a beautiful restaurant!
