That’s the problem when restaurants get a lot of hype: your expectations are really high. It was a lovely building. Cool vibe. Excellent service. Just OK food. At least it wasn’t overly expensive. I’m glad I experienced it.

Vibe is very cool, beautiful and chill decor. Service was impeccable. Everyone was so friendly and waiter was phenomenal. Food was excellent - some of the most authentic bao buns we’ve had since living in Japan. Oxtail ok scallion pancakes was best thing in the menu. Cocktails and beer were delicious. Will definitely be back next time we’re in Raleigh.

We were in town for the weekend and the only reservation left was a Friday 10pm. I had read such good reviews, that I went ahead and made the reservation. Do not regret! The food, drinks, and service were wonderful. We were conscious to be quick to order since they close at 11 right now, but we did not feel rushed in the least. Was a top notch experience and I will know to book earlier our next visit.

The service was wonderful. Our first two dishes, vegetable egg roll and seafood dumplings were fabulous. Our second dishes, pork & chive shumai and shrimp & corn were okay but not spectacular. The drinks were ver good.

It’s not the most authentic Asian/dim sum. Definitely “Americanized”

Beers are amazing!

The service was good, but the food was not tasty at all. We got he General Tso and the Sweet Soy Chicken. The General Tso tasted more like sweet and sour chicken with a bright red ketchup looking sauce. The Sweet Soy Chicken was just ok after adding their specialty sauce mixture.

We were visiting the area and read about this "cool" place to eat. Brewery Bhavana does not disappoint! The ambience is remarkable and lively. Amazing design and tables were spaced out yet you could feel the energy. Our server was exceptional and knew we were celebrating a special occasion. The food is memorable and everything we ate was spot on. Nice selection of beers and cocktails. Highly recommend for foodies.

Food was great! But service was shockingly slow. Our reservation was for an early dinner, and I could only see three other tables seated when we got there. We waited about 10-15 minutes for drinks, 20-25 minutes for an appetizer, and another 20 minutes for entrees.

I recommend trying the Peking Duck. Even though it is different from the authentic Peking Duck, the taste is great and we love it a lot.

Our reservation was for 9:30, we weren’t seated until 9:58. The hostess was in no way polite or sympathetic. With the restrictions in place, this left us with an hour to eat and drink. Our server forgot sauces with our meal and it was hard to get their attention when we needed them. I used to go to Brewery Bhavana a lot before covid, but this experience definitely made me question going back in the future.

Our second time here. Rare to find a place that caters to beer lovers but also has great Asian food, wine, & interesting cocktails. Great service. Casual dress so you can pop in anytime if you are in Raleigh.
