Best beer in Nairobi

If you are tired of Tusker look out for this place. They have a microbrewery that makes their beer. Really enjoyed the pils and the stout. The food is pub style, but tasty. Great chicken wings. We were there on Salsa night. The live band was good and the place was packed. Only negative were the... read more

Ate at Brew Bistro last week with visiting family in town. It was our first time since the new chef had made changes to the menu. Not everything gone, but definitely some new options, personal touches and refreshing changes. We decided to go for a tapas style meal and accidentally ordered one or two dishes too many, however enjoyed them... More

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 for about... 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
