This is a large 'beer kellar' type of bar/restaurant based on two floors and an outside area. The decor was polished wood throughout and gave you the impression of being in Europe not Vietnam. There was a good range of beers brewed and soft drinks,...More

We visited the Brauhaus at the beginning of the week with some local inhabitants and the business was thriving. They have a very good selection of beers but, if you don't drink beer, you are out of luck if you want wine, for example. The...More

This restaurant is a strange hybrid of German and Vietnamese. Consequently, the atmosphere is a little weird, as is the food. The decor is sort of German with heavy wood furniture, German/Eastern European beer, and wait staff dressed German-like! The food is generally pretty good,...More

Hoa Vien, the first & only restaurant that serves the world’s famous Pilsner Urquell draught beer - imported from Czech Republic (1995). As time goes by, Hoa Vien restaurant has acquired significant knowledge and experience in the field of food & beverage and has become a familiar venue for both Vietnamese & foreigners and beer-loving people. It would probably be impossible for us to be in our place today without the enthusiastic support from many customers & friends; especially the continual aid from the Czech Embassy in Vietnam and the Plzen brewery.Collaboration with Pivo Praha, Lukr Ingeneering Company, Beer & Malt of Czech Republic… Hoa Vien has successfully built up the brewery system inside the restaurant - applying Pilsen traditional brewery technology. Saigon Hoa Vien brewery restaurant was opened in 2001 & has been the first brewery restaurant model in Viet Nam. In Hanoi, over 10 years in operation, Hanoi Hoa Vien jubilantly opens its new venue in April 2007, with an area of over 1200m2, located right in the centre of Hanoi, constructed and decorated with the distinctive style & architecture of Europe - just 600m away from the City Opera House and the Hilton Hotel. Constructions & decorations at both restaurants gather our full interest & ultimately meticulous investment. Talented architects have decorated the building with wood & copper harmoniously with antiquity – we offer you the feeling of going back to ancient restaurants in Bohemia at beginning of the last century. Brass kettles are connected by a pipeline system to brewery equipment – installed inside the restaurant. Here, you can look at the continuous stages of the brewery process in reality & in a completely brand-new atmosphere. You can inspect every malt grain from famous Bohemia, gaze at hop flowers from Saatz (Zatec), enjoy young beer with a fascinating flavour in the brewery cellar. Besides quality requirements for input materials (malt, hop, yeast…) required in Technology-Transfer Agreement by our partner in Czech Republic, ante-brew water treatment is done with special filtering technology. Accompanied by these strict requirements, there are technology regulations for the Pilsen traditional brewery process - complied by experienced experts from the Czech Republic working at Hoa Vien everyday. All of the above factors are for the purpose of ensuring the ultimate constant quality of Hoa Vien beer. And for the first time in Vietnam, guests themselves can fill up their fresh beer glasses by beer taps - which are directly connected from beer-tanks in the cellar to drinking tables. This is a new & very special feature of Hoa Vien restaurant… HoaVien Brauhaus is the first brewery restaurant model in Vietnam, with the purpose of bringing high-quality beer to our distinguished guests, creating cultural/food/drinks exchange opportunities to propagate the concept about the Czech Republic’s brewery tradition - one of the greatest prides of the Czech people. Our purpose also includes the multiplication for this model in Vietnam; we are willing to support and offer necessary training for businessmen wishing to reach this model. These years, we have consulted & provided relevant information regarding designs, contrustions, equipment, installations, operations & technology transfers to many customers in Vietnam. The style & operation networks are administered by well-trained & experienced experts. Hoa Vien make sure of offering excellent services & constant quality at a reasonable price for guests’ ultimate satisfaction; creating new job opportunities & a stable working environment for restaurant staff. That target is the lode-star for our success.
