HANBAO means burger in Mandarin, and the Digbeth-based eatery is an east meets west dining experience. Sebastian and Alexander's original dream was to create a quality spot for diners to enjoy the ultimate in fast food. The unique burgers and cocktails served here are all about heavy indulgence; great food, great environment and great service.

Seb: I take the office role in managing everything business-related, always trying to improve, grow and push it forward. Alex takes the operative side, so anything front or back of house. Alex is the hands-on driving force that keeps everything running smoothly and as it should.
We opened the doors to HANBAO Digbeth in April 2022, so almost a year and a half now.
The differentiation that HANBAO has is the fusion between east and west with influences from music, art and present culture.
Digbeth is an up and coming area with a great community base and opportunities at every corner.
There are a lot of good lunch spots in Digbeth, but our go to is Baked and Brick. Their home-made bread is great.
Digbeth offers such a variety of things to do, from board games and arcades to day raves, to even having its own cinema. Digbeth can give you a great day / night out.

We’re always working on improving, whether it’s menu development or daily operations, we’re always looking at fine-tuning what we do and finding ways to grow from it, and speaking of growing, Bristol is on the cards for next year!
