“phenomenal seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Having lived in Nairobi most of my life, I know that seafood options have always been iffy. So I (sadly, and shamefully) usually wait for holidays away to really go into seafood. Seven has changed all this-- the food is fantastic!!! It's a great place- the ambiance is good, and the service is wonderful; and of course, the food is out of this world!

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Friends said that Seven was expensive and the food was ok/good, however after going last night I cant remember tasting such good fish [perhaps since the Maldives], it was up there with Nobu etc., the service was also friendly and efficient and the New Zealand white wine supurb, which was backed up by my French companion! Although a little pricey, it is well worth going to treat yourself! enjoy!!

“Not quite "Bush Larder"....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

After watching a cookery show called "Bush Larder" featuring the chef, Kieran from Seven, we excitedly made a dinner reservation. We were somewhat disappointed that none of the dishes that are showcased on the show feature on the menu, not even as specials. We had hoped for something local/Kenyan. That said, the food was bloody tasty!!!! Great presentation and the waiters are knowledgeable and friendly! Great evening out.

“yummy fresh seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We have eaten here a few times since moving to Nairobi. The food is incredibly fresh, delicious seafood from the Indian Ocean (highly recommend the slippery lobster, amazing). Service is always on the money. Adjoining bar is super fun as is Mercury Lounge a few doors down. Make sure to call and make a reservation as they are always pretty busy.
