    First time returning to Brewery Bhavana since COVID. Based on previous experiences, we were expecting better service quality and speed. The friendliness of the place didn't seem on key like it was pre-pandemic. Server didn't seem to have patience, and looked as if she was over serving, not leaving much time to cater to table needs. Long waits in-between. Took almost 20-minutes to receive a paper menu for one of our senior guest. Appetizers came out at the same time as the meal. Waited for almost a half hour trying to check out. To top it off, it was very warm inside, which impacted the overall experience. The saving grace was that the food was tasteful. For a moderately priced restaurant, we expected more. We'll likely come back in a few months and give Brewery Bhavana another shot. Until then, what was our number one Raleigh recommendation to visiting friends and family will take a pause until we feel that what made Brewery Bhavana special comes back again.

    Adam was our server and he was very knowledgeable and gave phenomenal recommendations. Food was delicious as well! My only complaint is that they did not offer military discount, but we will definitely be back. Might be my new favorite date night spot.

    Brewery Bhavana never disappoints. The food was amazing and the service was great. I brought a couple of first-times with me, and our server's ability to break down the details of the dishes and make recommendations that complimented one another was super helpful and led to us building an awesome meal.

    Overall, this place is pretty good and certainly a great place to try at least once. This was the first time back since the pandemic. The beer is where they shine and they definitely know how to nail the distinctive styles while also getting creative. Lots of styles to choose from and something for everyone. I think the main disappointment for us was in the prices We are not averse to paying more for great food and atmosphere, but this felt a little over the top for 8oz pours and small plates of dim sum. I can’t help but think we were also paying for the “Instagramable”ness of the space. Bottom line - delicious food, tasty beer, and quite a pricey lunch.

    One of my favorite meals since I moved to Raleigh. We went for lunch as the dinner reservations are harder to come by. Our server was very good but she was super busy. I watched her get quadruple sat and if you have ever served, you know it’s a nightmare. We started with the Char Siu Bao. I’m not a huge fan of pork but they were sooo good! We ordered the duck egg rolls, crab fried rice (10 out of 10), beef with longhorn peppers and sui dou (green beans). The serving sizes were enough for sharing and the flavors of everything were amazing! We had lots of leftovers!

    We had one night in Raleigh and I seriously contemplated spending the entire evening at Brewery Bhavana, despite our plans to explore other breweries in the area. The ambiance was divine. It was open, bright, and there were plants everywhere. The beer was spectacular. The flavors were uniquely entwined but they remained true to their style. The food was delightful. We had the dim sum and I wanted to try everything on the menu. Their cocktails all sounded fantastic but I stuck to the beer. Last, but certainly not least, our server Shae was top notch. She was kind, attentive, and super helpful. We loved her and couldn’t have asked for a better person to take care of us.
