Guangzhou Restaurant Review: Paulaner Wirtshaus

The Place

Our favorite German restaurant is back in Guangzhou with the Paulaner Wirtshaus opening at Four Seas Walk in Panyu. The 1,500 square-meter beer hall is one of only four in the world to boast the Paulaner brand in its newly reimagined concept. 

Owner-operator Paulina Zhang lived in Munich for 30 years where she learned true German cuisine and hospitality. This is evident in her hands-on approach to delivering a high quality customer experience in every detail.

The Food

While many European restaurants in China dilute their specialty with generic menu items, Paulaner is committed to providing succulent and authentic German cuisine. Anyone familiar with German cooking will be thrilled by the menu. Classics like crispy, roasted pork knuckle or schnitzel make appearances alongside signature dishes like beer-glazed ribs – all of which are accompanied by delicious and unique sides like German potato salad, spaetzle or warm sauerkraut.

The sausage selection has all the favorites from girthy Munich white sausage to grilled veal currywurst, which will be sure to provide the taste of Germany that you have been craving. If it sounds impossible to choose just one then look no further than the extravagant sharing platters with a collection of sausages, meats and sides to satiate even the hungriest of yodelers.

The Vibe

As the weather cools down, now is the best time to enjoy a cold, fresh pint in the outdoor biergarten and enjoy a platter of cured meats and german pickles. 

Paulaner beer is brewed in Hangzhou and transported at optimal temperature by specialized trucks to be pumped directly into the massive tanks at the bar in Panyu so that the beer is always fresh and flowing.

Although the restaurant has yet to celebrate its official grand opening, buckle up because Oktoberfest is just around the corner. Paulaner is offering very reasonable free-flow and German buffet tickets to help celebrate the notorious beer festival. The event runs from October 22 to 25 and includes live music, nightly raffles with fun prizes like 3-liter beer glasses and electronics and, of course, beer drinking competitions. The event is from 6pm-1am nightly with the buffet available until 11pm to help soak up the beer and keep the party going.

Paulaner Wirtshaus also offers a VIP membership option which allows special deals on food and drink as well as a monthly opportunity to come in and try special new menu items for free. Most importantly, however, is the accompanying beer stein (Germany’s famous stone beer mug) that will be personalized and stored behind the bar.
