Brewery
Sanskrit for cultivating, the seed of Brewery Bhavana was born from within our community of makers and dreamers with a shared vision: to create community through our humble offerings.

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!

Excellent meal and outstanding service! Large open room and therefore very loud. We had the crab fried rice wrapped in an egg pancake and chicken lo mein and both were flavorful and delicious. Will definitely return.

The food at this place is always amazing. Just knocking it out of the ballpark every time. Dumplings are incredible, though their price is a bit on the high side which is my only complaint. Have been before, and will return again.

Great dinner with my wife. We had cabbage rolls to start and the beef with peppers and shrimp lo mein. All 3 where great. Great Service and we had drinks at bar when we arrived early. Getting reservations require longer term planning than most local spots. Definitely not over priced and worth the wait.

Food was not up to our standard . And for the price paid, it was not worth it. I definitely will be ashamed to recommend Bhavana to my friends.

Lovely and unique restaurant in Raleigh. All the food was perfectly executed and the ambiance was very nice. Only negative was that the chairs were quite uncomfortable.

On a busy Thursday night, we had reservations for 9:30 and arrived early hoping to be seated sooner. The hostess did a great job of getting us a table by 8:45, which we appreciated. After a terrific beer at the bar, we were starving, and the food was, as always, exceptional. The buns are pillow-like without being doughy and the roasted pork belly entree was perfect. My only comment, after eating here now for the fourth time, is it would be great to see some creativity on the menu, perhaps based on the seasons? Otherwise this is always a solid choice.

It was the fries that time we took two out of town business colleagues here and they were so impressed. It’s such a fun place and delicious food. The noise was so loud though that we really couldn’t talk business comfortably. Overall, I love Brewery Bhavana always.

The food was amazing. We came for the dumplings and enjoyed soup dumplings, seafood dumplings and pork dumplings for appetizers. They’re a bit pricy as they come in 4s for about $12, but very tasty. The Peking duck was cooked well with a crispy skin outside and my congee was the best I’ve had since my trip to Thailand and NYC. Overall excited to come back and new things on the menu!

As first time patrons, we shared a selection of small plates and large plates to have a variety. We all agreed that everything was perfectly prepared and seasoned. Service was also perfectly timed and the crafted beers were as exceptional as the food. I can’t wait for the next visit.

We had heard so many great things about BB and it did not disappoint! We had the best server who took time explaining the different beers and dishes. He definitely knew what he was talking about! And the service was outstanding. All the pairings he suggested were spot on. The food was delicious and unique. It has great ambiance. It was a little loud and dark for me but overall the place still has a good vibe.
