Restaurant und Biergarten am Chinesischen Turm, Munich

(550+ reviews on the web)
Food & Drink
One of the finest restaurants in Munich, Restaurant und Biergarten am Chinesischen Turm was a gift to the city from Elector Karl Theodor in the 18th century. The Chinese Tower, inspired by Buddhist temples, makes a paradoxical backdrop to the restaurant's more casual beer garden. The beer garden's tables sprawl out under the tower beneath the trees. Hofbraeuhaus is accompanied by sausages, bratwursts, sauerkraut, and beans. You can make reservations at the fine-dining restaurant inside the building, but at the beer garden, just plop down and order up the local brew.

  • Again like Augustinerkeller, if you like heavy salty and fatty food this is your place. If you are the olive oil fishy type of 21st century have a small Radler. I quite enjoyed my Haxn and spare ribs ...  more »
  • Had a wonderful visit to English Bay to see the surfers, then walking inside the English Garden and discover this gem of a spot where you can relax and have some food and beer. Awesome surrounding!  more »
  • This is certainly an interesting place, there is plenty of beer available, however it can tend to be quite busy during peak days or hours. It is also a bit of a hike from the more touristy areas downt...  more »

  • Tasty food, marvellous area. Self service makes it easy to serve yourself and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. Prices good enough. Portions big .
  • Good choice of food and atmosphere is great. There's lot of seating so it's great for big groups. Not the cheapest place around, but it is a great location for a beer and some lunch.
  • Extremely overpriced, as in all famous places in Münich. The view is nothing special, the Chinese thing is boring and not remarkable in any way. It is not worth the trip coming here. The food is good though, I recommend wiessbier and the sausage.
  • Nice Biergarten! As usual in bavaria, you can buy a beer but bring your own food if you want!
  • Great food in a wonderful location. Prices are good but make sure to check your change when you pay
