“Great for a taste of fine dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Brew Bistro has a small fine dining restaurant adjacent to the bar. Its great for dinner. The food is awesome. Perfect for trying new stuff. Drinks are great and has a very lively atmosphere. Nice for a special occasion. I would recommend it highly.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

This is an awesome place. The decor is great, the service, the cocktails and the food....wow but I am yet to get accustomed to your beer.

Keep up the good work

“Classy but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Nice place and worth checking out. They brew their own beer but I couldn't vouch for that as I don't drink beer.

“Classy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

The ambiance is great, the food is tasty albeit pricey. Place is frequented by young professionals and is a good spot to meet classy people. Went there on a Saturday night and it was packed almost to capacity by 8pm. Enjoyed the resident DJ mixes sitting out overlooking Ngong road.The chicken wings are tasty and the beers are refreshing.Beware of the cops along Ngong road, they almost always will stop you for a breathalyzer and often you have to part with a few Ksh.

“Tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

I have now eaten at both the bar and the restaurant here several times -the restaurant was a decent experience, with good quality tasty food, just very expensive for small portions. The bar, which I have frequented often in the last year, has Great food, for a little more reasonable price. I have few fave spots in Nairobi but this is one of them. Yes, it's more expensive than other places but that's what you have to pay for a chef who knows what they are doing I guess~! I have tried many different items on the menu and never been disappointed. And they have a great happy hour. Also, hands down they have some of the best beer in East Africa. So if you are tired of tasteless beer and want something with a little more personality and complexity -grab a brew here. It is popular so it gets loud at night -and they have karaoke, salsa, etc. nights so if you like that, it an be hopping. Only disappointed that they stopped serving lunch this fall -have had great sunday brunch there before. The service is fine, though not exceptional. I hope that they continue in excellent quality food -thats not always the case over the years in Nairobi, but I have my fingers crossed for BB!
