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!
Amazing venue, had a wonderful time. the sweet soy chicken was jncreible
I've been to Brewery Bhavana twice now and have been blown away each time. The food and service was absolutely spectacular, I would recommend this restaurant to anybody visiting the Raleigh area.
Brewery Bhavana never disappoints. We got there early because the ballet ended sooner than we thought and they were able to seat us immediately. Our waiter was fabulous and gave us very good recommendations. This is one of my favorite restaurants!
Brewery Bhavana never disappoints. Atmosphere beer, and food were perfection.
Food was great, service was great. Definitely will be coming back again, so many thing to try.
Excellent experience all around. Will be going back to try the duck!
We went for my son’s birthday. They did not disappoint. Another excellent meal. Service was great!
Wonderful meal and service
Had a great time with great food and awesome drinks!
Really great meal for anniversary. They even brought champagne to the table,very nice touch. I rated 4 starts for ambiance for the loud noise level and due to the very tiny table. We had a hard time hearing our server. We couldn't fit everything on the table and kept having to rearrange (for context, we had appetizers, drinks, and an entree). The food was excellent!! As was th beer. Highly recommend.
We were disappointed with Bhavana Brewery. The food was fine, but nothing special, and a bit more expensive than other restaurants with similar options. can't see what all the fuss is about.
The atmosphere and food are all well above par. It’s a bit of a pricey lunch but worth it on occasion.
Great food and vibe my waitor was very personable and added the extra touch for my girlfriends birthday dinner. I will definitely be back
Fantastic food, service and beer. A unique and excellent experience. I’ll be back.
Fantastic food, great service, great beer; no complaints whatsoever. It was a little noisy but that is to be expected from such a busy establishment. Great place, will recommend to all my friends.
Friends suggested we go. It was “good
The food was good but the atmosphere is awesome. Highly recommend!
Amazing as always!
Lived up to the good things I have heard for awhile!
Always outstanding! Love the vibe, the library, the shop and all the eats!
Fun atmosphere but was not blown away by the food or beer. Not bad just not sure where all the hype is coming from. We shared 4 small bites plus a larger entree and enjoyed them all but nothing was remarkable. As for the beer, we are IPA drinkers and tried 4 IPAs that night. They all tasted more like a pilsner and similar in their fruity profile. Not the hoppy beer we were hoping for but it did go well with the food. This might be a fun place with a large group but I won't be making reservations weeks in advance again for just a date night.
This is probably my 10th time there, and I brought my extended family with me this time for my mom's birthday - BB never disappoints and they all agree!
Favorite restaurant in Raleigh! I always order small plates.
What a great combination of upscale Chinese food and dim sum with an outstanding book selection. If they had CDs I'd probably move in!
Go Go Go!!! Awesome date night with my beautiful wife!! Food was great and the scenery was perfect!
I really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was delicious and I loved the layout of the place. The idea of mixing a bookstore and a brewery is very interesting. Some of the tables are separated with light curtains which makes your dinner experience feel private in such a busy place. My only negative comments about the place is that they should provide quality chopsticks, not the ones from takeout places and the bill should be given in a nice fashion that fits the style of the place, like in a book or something rather than just put on the table. Otherwise greater experience would recommend for a fancy night out.
Great meal and great service.
Go to venue for entertaining out of town guests! Very unique atmosphere and fantastic menu and drinks.
Honestly one of the best experiences I’ve had! The place is so cool, food was AMAZING, service unmatched. Will be back again and again!
Brewery Bhavana is my favorite place in Raleigh. Food is absolutely fantastic, and they have some very interesting selection of local brewed beers.
The chicken dumplings were great and the schezuan fish broth was good but little bit on the salty side
Overall a great experience
Our server was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the menu. The food was wonderful with delicious and complex flavors. The setting was simple and inviting.
One of my favorite restaurants in Raleigh. I would eat here a few times a week if I could. Love the scallion pancakes and the seafood dumplings. I have dined here 4 times now and everything is always delicious!
Food was pretty good. Beer was delicious. Did not quite live up to the hype of the best restaurant in Raleigh, though.
Ambiance was nice on a Sunday afternoon . Our server was pleasant but not super knowledgeable about all the dishes served. I thought the Rice Conghee was waaaay salty as was a lot of the dishes we had. I hated to do it but I cut the soup w adding some of my water. They were out of sangria so no cucumber sangria. Got the Lucky Star and had too much lime juice🙁
Vegetable puffs were really delicious!
Our server, Hannah, was excellent. Feel free to ask to sit in her section. Seafood dumplings and the Borean Lager were the stars of our meal. Don't miss a chance to try this place.
Best spot in the Triangle.
We stumbled across Brewery Bhavana Spring of 2018, while looking at colleges with our son. The food was amazing; during a late lunch on a Friday afternoon.
We've been trying to make it work to get back here since, now that our son goes to Elon University. Finally made it happen, and we had some friends with us as well.
The food, service, everything was nothing short of AMAZING!
Our waiter and server were awesome!
Wanted to try something new and unique, so my fiance and I ordered the scallion pancakes that uses bone marrow, absolutely amazing. Might be my favorite dish in Raleigh. Also ordered the beef w/ longhorn peppers, very spicy but that's exactly what I wanted. Food was cooked perfectly and flavorful. Service and ambiance were top notch. We will be coming back.
