Description: Coming all the way from New York, Brooklyn Bar and Restaurant is an independently owned business who aims to bring a diverse, unique and vibrant dining experience to Dalian.We bring to the table a style of food that combines modern creative and traditional authentic American food in a Brooklyn-styled restaurant experience. Our ingredients are sourced both locally and internationally to guarantee we meet the highest standards in food quality. These ingredients perfectly compliment our house made bread, desserts, sauces and sausages, which we freshly prepare and make daily. We are immensely proud to make all our own food in house. The only thing we care more about than what ingredients go into our kitchen, is the food that comes out of it. Call us fussy, but if the food doesn't pass the standards of our trained & professional chefs, we won't let it leave our kitchen. Another thing very important to us is our staff. We've always treated our employees like they're family because we firmly believe that happy employees makes for better tasting food! So rest assured that you are getting the best quality and best service when you dine at Brooklyn! It is our hope that every customer that walks in our doors, leaves with a smile on their face and a dining experience they won't forget! We don't hope you enjoy your food... WE KNOW YOU WILL!

“Did not disappoint, as usual!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Went with coworkers and a supplier. Had the pizza, tacos, burger, fish and chips, and italian sandwich. With the exception of the "Chips" that come with the fish and chips, everyone loved it - as usual!

The "Chips" with the fish and chips were OK, but their regular fries are better.

Yes, as the previous reviewer noted, they only take cash here - no credit cards. For those of you who travel internationally a lot, you know that for an establishment to take credit cards, they need machines that can accept cards from all over the world - which usually means the need to have multiple machines - all at a cost to the establishment. Rather than assume why they only take cash, it might be better to ask the owner about the reasons behind the policy.

Wayne was there, remembered us, and spent some time chatting with us about the food, service, and how we were doing.

I love coming here and sitting in the bar area. It's relaxing, great service, fair prices, and always a great meal.

Wayne and staff - keep up the good work!!!

“Good western food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Brooklyn bar has good food, great service, a great range of drinks and a nice bar atmosphere. They have a good selection of American-style western food, including Mexican, burgers, salads etc, and it's one of the few (if only) places you can get Mexican food in Dalian. The service is great, and the staff all speak English. They have a good range of beers and cocktails, and also have decent wines by the glass, which is hard to find in Dalian!

“Used to be good.”

Every recent trip to Brooklyn bar as had problems. Overcharging on the bill twice, no sour cream with Mexican food, very little cheese on the pizza and burnt. Steaks are great though.

“Great Night in Dalian!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

During our recent visit to China, our night at Brooklyn Bar in Dalian was definitely just what we were looking for. It has a perfect atmosphere - the friendly, helpful, happy staff are welcoming and the style of architecture creates a warm, comfortable, pleasing-to-the-eye ambience. There are a broad selection of tasty dishes available including salads, tapas, tacos, burgers - we were impressed with our choices! Equally comprehensive is the range of drinks - the beer drinkers had a few of their favourite brews, I enjoyed a smooth good quality Australian red wine. The staff are obviously very well trained and the owner of Brooklyn, Wayne, has a friendly genuine nature - he's a super host! A fun memorable night out in Dalian China!

“Excellent Business Destanation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Exceptional food, drinks and service. China is generally lacking in customer service and presentation, however Brooklyn in Dalian goes against that grain..

Perfect for a long dinner with colleagues whilst enjoying a few micro-brews and quality cocktails after a long day.

Brooklyn offer a diverse menu including great mexican plates, authentic style homemade sandwhiches and world class pizza. It really is comparable to your favorite places back home..

Next time you are in Dalian,
I suggest you head in and say hello to staff. Everyone speaks good English and the owner "Wayne" is super helpful with other things to check out round Dalian..

I'm looking forward to heading back..
