    Food is good but expensive for portion size. There is only a limited din sum menu between 2pm-4pm. We spent $100 for 3 orders of dumplings and 4 beers. Ended up getting more food elsewhere after.

    Every time we come it is an awesome experience. The food was fantastic. The soup dumplings are my absolute favorite. Our server was great and gave excellent advice. It is pretty loud so it does feel like you have to shout unless you’re in a corner. But we love brewery bhavana.

    My recent visit to Brewery Bhavana was an absolute delight. The food was exceptional, with every dish bursting with flavor and expertly prepared. From the diverse dim sum selection to the perfectly grilled meats, each bite was a testament to the chef's skill. The atmosphere was inviting, with a beautifully decorated space and attentive staff ensuring a memorable dining experience. I highly recommend Brewery Bhavana for anyone seeking top-notch cuisine and a welcoming ambiance.

    Top 3 restaurants in Raleigh. Eat small snack before you come because serving size is small. Pizza by the slice restaurant down the block. Quality of food is best Asian food in Raleigh.

    I loved my seafood dumplings and the pork shumai. Green beans were a great sharing size for a table of 5. We savored the coconut cake and chocolate turtle cake. Our party also enjoyed cocktails, green tea and coffee- plentiful beverage choices to complement the food. I highly recommend this great place to meet friends and enjoy the sunshine beaming through the skylight on a Saturday.

    This is my first time with this restaurant and oh, I was very disappointed. I have tried several dumplings and by far this is the worst. I honestly don’t know what the big hype is, our appetizer tasted like something that comes out of the frozen section of Walmart, the entrees was not bad , but too spicy that I couldn’t finish. I decided to take it to go and my bill came to over 100 bucks…. Definitely over priced glorified Chinese food , I would not recommend this place to anyone unless you like paying 3x the price for frozen food that comes from Walmart

    I was impressed from when I first walked in. The bar, the greenery, the library. Then we tried the food. Everything was amazing, and the sharing experience with all the plates made it so much fun for us. My friend had a birthday, and she newly found out she is pregnant. Our server was on top of everything. 10/10 best service. At the end of the night, they gave my friend a rose and a little gift……..it was a onesie! My friend cried she was so touched by the thoughtfulness. Will for sure be returning! Go check it out!

    Everything was outstanding, from the drinks at bar, to the greeters to our wait staff. Food was off the charts. Only hiccup was when I was leaving the restaurant at 7pm, I was approached by someone who shook me down and wanted money for food. The restaurant should consider security for its patrons.

    This was my first time coming to Brewery Bhavana and it was absolutely fantastic. I wanted a special place to take my fiancé for Valentine's Day, picked this place randomly the day before, and it turn out to be the perfect place for the occasion. The food was delicious. I had the Wild Duck. It was prepared to perfection, so compliments to the Chef. I wish I could remember my waiter's name because he was the absolute best waiter I have ever had. He set the tone for the entire night. He was humorous, very attentive, knowledgeable, and professional. Thank you. 10 out of 10 definitely recommend!

    We had the best experience. Our server was amazing. I asked for a gluten free main dish and she brought out a gluten free appetizer for me with our parties regular appetizers. Then she saw my purse on the floor and brought me a purse hanger. That’s above and beyond. I will definitely be going back. And the food was delicious!

    Delicious food, great beers & large selection of them. Def on the pricier side but worth it for special occasion dining. My only sort of “complaint” was that they keep it insanely dark inside but I get they want the vibe and ambiance - so maybe I’m just too old for hip downtown dining 😂😂. 100% will return.

    The food, ambience and service were great. Our food was very hot when it came, but cooled down quickly. I wish there was a way to keep it more warm. But I am sure it comes with the season of being cold outside. You can tell they had regulars because one of them told me where to find the bathroom! Would definitely visit again :)

    Accessibility note!! If you are waiting for a table (we have A reservation, there is not seating area dedicated to this, we did ask and they sat us right away but a small area to allow for those who need it would be beneficial) We had a pleasant enough time. Overall the food was alright with some just okay and then a standout in the mooncakes and the relish (one of the best single bites I’ve ever had in my life). I felt like the bao buns were very small for a steep price and the boneless spare rib bao were dry. Bonus points for our great server and the chili crisp oil.
