Since I really do not like such crowded places (which Brew almost always is!) I did not quite enjoy the ambiance, though the food is lovely, especially the calamari. I can't get enough of it.

There are there Craft breweries in Nairobi. Serville brewdry, Sierra and this one. Big five has five different Beer and occasional special Beers. A real microbrewery but morebof a lounge. Many expats come here and partymood on weekends. Beers are adapted to the local market and not to challenging. But they are the best in Kenya.

For anyone that appreciates quality beer then Brew Bistro delivers on this front! The beers are streets ahead of other brewers and the food is not bad either. My only problem is that it gets too crowded at times......maybe a move to a bigger location one day might help alleviate this. Looking forward to my next visit.

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

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 prostitutes trying to pick... 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
