Welcome to the Restaurant Bräuhaus China!

We warmly welcome you on a «trip to Europe»! On this trip you will experience typical Bavarian, Austrian and Swiss hospitality which is based on centuries-old traditions and which we directly imported to China.

A visit at Restaurant Bräuhaus is always a gastronomic and cultural experience.

We have a variety of food on offer that includes Munich Originals as well as Bavarian classics, and European titbits accompanied by our chefs’ local and international favourites. Our platters are served on large wooden boards, in lush bowls or big cast iron pans.

Our home-brewed Restaurant Bräuhaus beer is always an excellent supplement. If you have any questions about our home-brewed beers please ask our brew master.

Whether our guests are dancing till late in the evening or just having a relaxing time with friends – typical Bavarian food is part of the package we want to deliver to our guests – to discover the typical Bavarian way of life.
