Back in late October or Early November I took a good friend out to dinner to thank her for all she had done to help. We had a great and wonderful experience. Chef Mike was entertaining and educational. The food was absolutely delicious and simple.

I absolutely agree with pisbee! Entertainment Elements was the only hope in downtown Kitchener which could make this shabby, miserable town change into a cool, sophisticated place! What a shame!!

This restaurant is now closed...really too bad because it was really a great place to go...it always got good reviews...just another example of cheap and lazy Kitchenerites not supporting Downtown businesses because you can't park for free or right in front of said business...geeeeze.

Freshly made soups and salads, excellent sandwiches made to order (I like the chicken and brie), and interesting daily specials. This is one of the better lunch options Downtown, imo. The fresh produce on offer from Baileys Foods on Tuesdays is well worth the visit...More

Thanks for your review. The chicken and Brie is one of our most popular sandwiches. Please try some of the other Chicken sandwiches such as the BBQ chicken and the Jerk chicken. We just put the ABC back on the menu (Avocado, Bacon and Cheddar)....More

The quality of the food here at Bistro Nash has really declined over the last few months. When it first opened, I ate here regularly. I found the prices a bit high, but the quality and taste of the food made up for it! However,...More
