“One of my preferred beer hang-outs in NBI”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Have visited the Brew frequently over the past years, both as NBI resident and as visitor. Yesterday evening, I was back in Nairobi and met with friends at the Brew for drinks. Make sure you make a reservation, or come early, if you want a seat especially on Thursday and Friday. With live music playing, it will be noisy but it has a good vibe and the (covered) terrace enables you to enjoy the great NBI climate in an 'indoor' environment. Especially nice with sunsets. We ordered fingerfood to share. Overall the food was nice. Lamb Kofta, Mini Burgers (very good as always), Calamari (not the best ever) amongst others. The peaunut sauce was not as tasteful as it used to be (change of Chef?). We enjoyed the happy hours and the locally brewed beers. Parking next and under the building and located near Junction/Yaya. You will not regret coming here.

“Good beers in Nairobi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

The beer is what makes this place a good stop for a cold pint. They dont always have all the varieties of beers available (I visited there on 3 occasions) If they have all the beers in stock a great way to get the best value is to order the beer sampler. The food is typical pub grub with specials running all the time. The band is rather good, but the sound is a bit owerwhelming, If you are looking for a place to hang out and dont mind the sound you're ok :) overall a good night out.

“Lively Weekend Crowd”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Having visited Brew Bistro on three occasions in the last 5-months, and over the weekend. It's always packed, little chance of a seat (get there early), and you need to fight your way through the crowd to find somewhere to stand. The beer has a unique taste (brew their own), it takes some getting used to, but still went down.
Having said that, The atmosphere and music is great.
On one occasion we ate in the restaurant, I had an excellent steak, which was cooked to my taste.
Worth a visit.

“amazing place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

i am a vegetarian.. and even though they do not have a wide selection for veg food the much that they have is delicious,.... you get what you pay for. the ambiance is nice especially during sundowners and happy hour..... great live bands.... the only downside is that if you want to go late at night it gets too packed and there is no seating, so go before 9pm... but otherwise its a great place
