This is a very nice place that had the atmosphere of an American restaurant. The food is good, and they have several different brews are made in house (a nice change from Tusker). Beers are buy-one-get-one-free during happy hour, which is 5-7pm. I would definitely return. Ask for Curtis.

As an American, I'm often disappointed by burgers in Nairobi, but never at Brew Bistro. They have several kinds to choose from (even lamb!), the meat is good quality and the Belgian fries are also my favorite in Nairobi. The staple beers they brew are pretty good (Hefeweizen is hit or miss), and happy hour is buy one get one.... More

As everyone has pointed out so far, this is definitely an expat bar but the beer is great. Happy hour is 2 for 1 beers or mojitos from 5-7pm. We happened to be there on a Tuesday and it was build your own burger night! Uh yes. I had a falafel burger with avacado, mango chutney, and tomato with the... More

You see a lot of expats here. There is a lot of beer, however for a bar the list of other drinks available is rather limited. Food is ok, it is a burger place. If you come early enough you can enjoy a nice chat with friends. Once the music starts it is so loud that conversations are not possible... More

If you're here on a night with a band - be prepared to shout through your meal. The burgers are great and the beer is superb. A welcome reprieve from the bottled urine that is Tusker.

Brew Bistro ends up being the default night out plan;it is close by,secure and mostly fun times. I do feel the cocktails are watered down. I complained to the manager and he simply added sugar. I will say they have very good burgers.

Nice place to enjoy an outdoor sitting. Great to watch sports (you have many TV screens) and cocktails. Live bands time to time.

Had supper here one evening and the food is superb, with great service too. It was nice that the manager personally came to check on the people at every table and ensure that they were completely happy as well. Maybe the background music is a little loud which makes conversation harder than could be ideal, but is overall good value... More
