Reliably great beer and food but those prices...

This has been one of the best spots for both after work drinks and boozy dinners for years. The burgers are a must. The beer is great and a real (much needed) break from Tusker. Since the new menu came in, the pimped up chips are pretty spectacular. We ate The New Yorker chips probably once a week... read more

My disappointment came about when my wine and mojito got diluted. I have been there a couple of times and it's sad to note that their alcoholic drinks always, and I mean always, seem to be watered down, something they will need to work on or better yet just take coffee or soda. The price on drinks definitely not worth... More

If you're looking for a fun, lively venue with great food and cool decor, this is the place! I'm a vegan and found several delicious menu items that completely suited my needs, and the staff were friendly and helpful. It was too loud for my taste - but don't let my personal preferences deter you from such a great venue!

This is a review of the catering for a formal function that wasn't held at Brew Bistro but their fabulous chef Hector provided the food in a kitchens that wasn't a professional one and unfamiliar to him and his team. From beginning to end Hector and his staff worked tirelessly to ensure that a fantastic evening was had by all.... More

I had a chance to visit for a weekday dinner.The food was very good and so was the beer.I sat on the fine dining area which is quite intimate and quiet.It is ideal for date night.

We love to go out dancing, drinking, and some shisha here, but be sure to get there early on a week end or you will find yourself very cramped and with no place to sit. The house made beer is the best I've had in Kenya but the food is mediocre...Granted, I had a big birthday party here with a... More

Brew Bistro was a pleasant surprise for me. I visited on a Thursday and it was packed but I understand it is even "body to body" on Fridays. The music was soulful - There was a lady who sang along with the band and boy, did she sing! The Tapas starter tray was very tasty, left me wanting for more.... More

We visited twice while in Nairobi for a week's work (we live in Nakuru). The first visit was on a Sunday afternoon. We booked in advance to make sure we got a table with a view of the 6 Nations rugby game we were keen to catch. Booking was easy and the table we got was great. Unfortunately they don't... More
