Fantastic service, modern atmosphere. Inventive takes on classic Asian dishes. The crispy pig ears and shumai were wonderful. The xiao long bao a little dry and the lo mein a little salty. But would definitely come back to try different small plates. Beers, especially the grove, were tasty. Overall pretty good experience.

Incredible food and service. We shared all dishes, could have enjoyed small plates all night. The soup dumplings, the shrimp and corn hand pies, the Shumai and the green beans were all over the top delicious. The Old-Fashioned is worth a return trip. Lovely lovely evening.

Best restaurant experience in Raleigh. The food was incredible, but our server Raymond was excellent as well. He was attentive (but not overbearing) and was willing to answer our questions. He was also patient (we ordered one item at a time and ate tapas-style), never rushed us, and even sent out another dish for us to sample. Very eager to eat here again!

Great experience and wonderful food. We had a reservation and were running a bit late, called ahead and our table was held. The only issue I have with this place is the noise level. Both times I have been it's hard to hear your dining companions. The exposed ceiling and brick walls are nice to look at but allow of too much sound to bounce. Please invest in some panels to absorb sound and improve the experience. Your staff will be glad you did too.

The restaurant looks incredible and the food is phenomenal. They even have a little flower shop you can surprise your significant other with at your table.The meal was going great and the food was incredible. About halfway through the time there the hostess checked me out twice while my wife sitting right next to me and kept that did not please her in the slightest. Besides that little event it was a pleasant experience

Food and service was exemplary. Top quality meal served in a timely manner.
Noise level was a bit high as the bar area was pretty crowded but did not really interrupt conversation.

Really like Brewery Bhavana. You’ll have to make a reservation we’ll in advanced in order to not have an hour plus wait. Also the table we were sat at was so small that it only fit 2 small plates at a time, so that’s my only slight complaint. Would definitely return.

So sad I’ve lived in Raleigh for as long as I have and only recently tried Brewery Bhavana. Excellent food, service, and ambiance. I’ve already told everyone I know that this restaurant needs to be on their short list of places to try. Already looking forward to my next visit!

One of the top reasonably priced restaurants in Raleigh. Food is awesome and their craft beers are exceptional! Full cocktail bar, wines, and cider if beer isn't your thing. Young hipster vibe. Get reservations or prepared to wait!!!

Service, energy, people watching, all in a beautifully designed space. The team effort to make our dinner special guarantees a return visit. We parked for free in the well-lit garage a block away, and on a Wednesday night, the house was packed.

Great food. A bit noisy. Expected the dim sum to be carted around rather than ordered off the menu, but still a great experience. As a non-beef and non-pork eater, the choices were limited yet were still shared eight dishes that were extremely tasty. Would recommend the crab fried rice.

We were celebrating my daughter's birthday. Everyone loved sharing several appetizers so we could sample a lot of different dishes. We wish they offered more vegetarian and gluten free options. We would go more often if they did.

Brewery Bhavana was absolutely amazing! Everything about it, from the unique cocktails and endless choice of delicious beer to the surprising chocolate cake at the end of our night was outrageous! :) The BEST thing we had, actually one of the best things I’ve EVER had, was the “scallion pancakes” dish- because it’s beef bone marrow topped with braised/shredded beef... Oh my gosh! I am fantasizing about eating it again right now! 😁

The service was impeccable and the food was pretty good. The beer as well was pretty good. I gave 4 out of 5 to the food just because I thought the chicken would be all white meat but they just give you the chicken with fat and bones pieces, and for me this is disgusting, besides that I love it everything and I will always bring my friends there when they come to visit me.
