Sausages, beer....what else do you need?

This is a great place to come for a meal with friends who like their food and beer. They brew several types in the restaurant including a white (wheat) beer, a dark one and a lager. If you're lucky you'll also get a good view of the lake and on a good day, even a cracking sunset. Try the... read more

I reviewed this restaurant a few months ago and couldn't believe how far downhill the place has gone since then. The location is neither convenient nor attractive (from the front anyway). It looks like it's on an industrial estate for restaurants.However the inside of the restaurant is quite attractive and in keeping with the German beer house theme. What it... More

A colleague and I visited this bar at 10pm on Saturday night in July 14. A little bit off the beaten track from the main bar street of Ligongdi but well worth the walk. home brewed beer and good service (didn't eat but there were a few people eating on the night). The night we were there it was very... More

Great home brew beer and authentic German food! Band had a wide range of music. Nice outdoor view of beautiful Jinji Lake http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g297442-d1813978-Reviews-Jinji_Lake-Suzhou_Jiangsu.html

This place isn't about authentic German food, but then making sausage and sour kraut isn't all that complex. Good beer, plenty of noise and decent service make it a popular spot in the lakeside restaurant row.

I really enjoyed the spatzle and the people I was with said the pig knuckle was pretty good. The beer was tasty and the happy hour, 2 for one special, made it a good deal. Worth a visit.

Great German food with lake view. My mother is German and after 8 years living in Asia, I sometime miss some good German food which this place delivers. Nice lake view. 10' drive from the Interncontinental Hotel rated the best hotel in Suzhou.

The food tastes really good, I am german - so just trust me. Also a chinese waitress in a traditonell german "Dirndl"... More

A tall glass/stein on hot Suzhou summer. A no brainer, and Hofbrau Suzhou is a great place to have one. Include a plate of sausage and "happy, happy, joy, joy." You can also enjoy the pork knuckle, sans the "eh" fries, and you've got a grand slam! Service was fantastic and attentive. The location is nice since it's near Jinji... More
