Bier Garden

On Dong Khoi street, near the Saigon Opera House and in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City you find Bier Garden, a Hoi An style restaurant where the friendly staff serves a variety of international and Vietnamese dishes with a special twist.

The restaurant opened in 2010 and has earned a good reputation over the years. The speciality of Bier Garden is, as the name of the venue already indicates, beer.

The bar of the restaurant offers a selection of 34 different beers from all over the world. The airy garden space is the perfect place to lean back and enjoy an Omaha beef steak, which arrives at your table sizzling on a hot rock. Other specialities include German sausage or phở hot pot.

For lunch you may want to try one of Bier Garden’s delicious bánh mì combos for VND 79,000++. The most popular of these is bánh mì with roast pork, German style.

Ambiance

Bier Garden restaurant is built in the beautiful style of ancient Hoi An, making use of many wooden elements and lovely lanterns. Upon entering the venue, the first thing that captures your view is the big counter and the selection of 34 beers from all over the world, displayed on the shelves behind.

Right next to this is the small but beautiful garden area, featuring a koi pond. This is the best place to sit and relax in the restaurant.

Behind the garden, the main guest room opens up to the visitor, dominated by the open kitchen, where the chefs prepare the tasty dishes that get served at the Bier Garden. Upstairs you find a big, open area that is the perfect location for hosting events. The greatest strength of the venue is probably the airy openness to the garden area and the wind that gently moves the Hoi An lanterns.

Guests who would like to eat in an air conditioned environment can take a seat at the 30-seat lounge area, right opposite of the beer bar.

Bier Garden seats 180 guests, but with the design and the separate areas, it looks smaller and more private. Every evening between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m., a Filipino band lightens the mood with English songs and live entertainment.

Service

A part of the good experience at Bier Garden restaurant is the friendly and attentive staff that serve food and drinks with a smile. During your stay you can rest assured that your water glass doesn’t stay unfilled for long periods of time. They are also fast to recommend the hot stone special and other promotions. The staff training is focused on the special beers they serve at the restaurant.

Experience

While Tiger draft beer is the most popular drink at Bier Garden, the drinks menu features a selection of 34 different beers. Most of them imported from traditional beer countries like Germany, Czech Republic and Belgium.

That feature alone makes the venue worth a visit, but the food menu is even more interesting, because it offers a wide choice of international and Vietnamese dishes, prepared by the chef who formerly worked at Lion Brewery and has over 10 years of experience.

 

While the German sausage is the most popular serve of the restaurant, they feature an array of dishes that make you curious in the beginning and happy in the end. Steaks arrive sizzling on a hot rock and whether you eat your imported U.S. Omaha beef steak rare, medium or well done is up to you. There are many promotions around the hot rock dishes you don’t want to miss.

If you strive to eat phở with a twist, try phở lẩu, the popular Vietnamese noodle soup in a hot pot pot variation. And if you are in a hurry and can’t find time to sit down in the cozy environment, pick one of their 11 mouthwatering bánh mì creations, from which roast pork bánh mì German style is the most popular one.

Open kitchen at Bier Garden, Dong Khoi Street, HCMC

While sausages and steaks are nice, we went straight for the salmon. Grilled to perfection by the dedicated chef and served with steamed vegetables on tagliatelle and with savory pepper sauce at the side. The vegetables were steamed right to the point and retained their vibrant colors as well as their individual taste.

Grilled salmon with vegetables and tagliatelle

Here is a selection of German-inspired ribs and salted roast pork, some vegetables and a mouthwatering dipping sauce. This kind of savory snack goes well with the selection of beers that is served at the restaurant.

Beer Snacks at Bier Garden Ho Chi Minh City

Bier Garden is kid-friendly, although they don’t have a kid’s menu. But it’s not too hard to keep track of the small ones, since they tend to gather around the pond in the garden area and play with the fish.

All that makes Bier Garden a nice place to sit and enjoy a cool beer with friends, family or business partners.
