    Food was terrible - it came 2 minutes after we ordered, even before we got water or any drinks. That’s how you know it’s bad. I could get better Chinese food at my local chinese restaurant or at PF Chang’s. The scallion pancake was too rich, the pancakes were dense and greasy. The duck egg roll was heavy and lacked flavor. The general tso chicken was dense, dry and hard. The service was terrible and despite assuring me they would have a candle for my husbands birthday, the server didn’t know and the cake we ordered (the tropical cake), was dry and flavorless. Will not come back.

    Everytime I have out of town friends come, I always bring them to Brewery Bavaria. I usually pick what we want to eat, though this time, I asked for recommendations. While waiting for the food, we had a couple of great beers. hen the food came and both of us were disappointed. Unfortunately, we came at a later hour and ate at 8:40, maybe the top chefs went home then. Either way, we had the bone marrow with beef or pork (we couldnt tell) as the meat was very dry and we left most of it over. The dumplings were avery at best. the Scalion pancakes were tasty, though not enough to fill us. We left hungry and at again later. We spent around $100 . For the money spend, we could have gone to a better place for food. Im sorry, but I was let down and Ill consider going to another place for food and this place for their Beer.

    Went here for a pre-show date with my husband and it was perfect. The space is very open inside and nicely decorated with it’s own in-restaurant library. Even though it’s a brewery, we didn’t try the beers so I can’t speak to that. We did have cocktails which were unique and well balanced. Defintely try the Cloud Cup! Our waitress was so kind and helpful and pointed us to a lot of good dishes. We got 6 dishes off the Dim Sum menu- 4-5 would have been plenty! Our favorites were the scallion pancakes with bone marrow, pork and chive shumai, and the seafood dumplings (I will dream about that broth!). We could have skipped the char su bao buns- not a lot of flavor- but the bun itself was a lovely texture. High recommend Brewery Bhavana for it’s easy going atmostphere, friendly staff and wonderful food and drinks.

    I saw this restaurant online, and the ambience and the food looked great. I love to spend a pretty penny on a nice restaurant so the prices are normal for me. I will begin with the service, she was great. I wish I could remember her name but she was super sweet. I had no issue with the prices on the menu UNTIL I received my appetizer. I ordered crab rangoon, and it was approximately $17. I was very disappointed to see there were 4 small size crab rangoon with little to no filling. Just bread. My entree was good, I would recommend the beef with longhorn peppers. My partner didn’t enjoy the general tso because it was overcooked. Our drinks were okay as well. Overall, our bill came up to about $100, and we were both disappointed. The value was just not there for us. We wish we would have just went to Bonchon for better food and pricing.

    Had an absolutely amazing meal at BB today! The edamame ginger dumplings and the chicken jiaozi were superb as were the sauces and mocktails. Dawn H was a great server, attentive but not intrusive and we had a lovely 2 pm post-NCSymphony birthday celebration. Room was quiet because of the time of day but I’ll bet this place is hopping later on. The front desk staff were friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back and already know what we will order next!

    This tapas/family style Laotian restaurant is one of our favorites as locals. Anytime we have someone from out of town visit and we want to do a nicer dinner we go to Brewery Bhavana. The flavors are incredible and have some fun unique options that give everyone the opportunity to expand their palate.

    Food & flavors always awesome here, however, this visit the General Tso Chicken seemed a bit overcooked, a tad tougher than usual. Beef with Longhorn Peppers and Duck Egg Rolls easily made up for that.

    Ambiance and service were very good. Dim sum and appetizers. Excellent. Disappointed in main courses. Blue crab main course with rice was bland, barely a flavor of crab. Chicken entree was too crispy. If I go back it's to sit at the bar. Have an excellent beer and some dim sum.

    Went there with my wife to celebrate our anniversary. It was our 3rd time visiting Bahvana as we recently moved to NC from Rhode Island. Our previous 2 visits were amazingly perfect. However, this time although the food was great, the service could have been a bit better. 1. Food amazing 2. Ambience, atmosphere amazing 3. Drinks - Very good 4. Service - average. When comparing the service we got during our previous visits, I can say it wasn’t as we are use to receive there. To avoid overcomplicating this just going to say that for this type of restaurant my expectation is that I won’t need to call the waiter to ask for anything. My expectation is that I will be asked by the server with no need to bend my neck to see if the waiter will look at me and there won’t be any need to call her by saying excuse me!!!

    Amazing! One of our favorite spots in the Raleigh area. We love the dumplings and General Tsos meal. They have the best cocktails too. We purchased the coffee beans in the shop for the first time- delicious! Strong, robust flavor and not bitter at all.
