“An Amazing Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I have been going to the Seven Seafood & Grill since it opened first in ABC Place. The food is exquisite and the owner Kiren is friendly ad an amazing person who is keen to ensure that all is going well. The fish and chips is cooked in a light fluffy batter, the wedges are yummy and everything on the menu is well thought out. Their wine list is excellent and the new lounge at ABC next door is chilled. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They also do not forget a face and hence always welcoming. The new Seven in Village Market is just as brilliant!

“excellent fish restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Consistent experience over several visits: very good food, pricey but good value, good service, nice extras.

Before the food arrives, garlic bread is served with 3 addictive dipping sauces (additional bread and sauces are brought out on request).
The selection of wine by the glass is interesting and overcomes the Chile/box tedium of many other places.
The fish is very fresh and cooked perfectly. I also recommend the niçoise salad (with octopus or fish topping).
The venue is a mixed bag - inside is a sleek lounge atmosphere, and there is a small patio that is one meter from ABC Place's parking lot (separated by a screen and plants).
I believe the dinner menu is more expensive than the lunch menu, which is good value.
My go-to place for fish in Nairobi.

“Best place for seafood in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Seven Restaurant at ABC Plaza on Wayaki Way is our favorite place in Nairobi for seafood. The quality of the ingredients is fantastic for Nairobi and the creative menu is always inspiring.

I’ve seen other reviewers comment on the new Seven Restaurant in Village Market, but that location has a different menu focused more on steaks than seafood. If you are looking for great seafood, exceptional service, and ambience that makes you feel like you’ve left Nairobi for the evening, try Seven in ABC Plaza. If you’re looking for a great steak restaurant, try the Seven at Village Market.

Highlight: Grilled whole fish (see attached photo), excellent servers, and delicious cocktails.

“My #1 in Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

If you are a seafood fan - this is a place to be in Nairobi. It is located in a rather awful place but what you get let's you forget about the traffic on Wayaki Way, the ugliness of ABC Plaza (which is not a plaza in any sense) and the long rain season in Kenya.
The food is just fantastic. Fresh catch of the day, courriered daily from the coast, good selection of other seafood. Their crabs are a must try. Great fun to eat - nothing beats splashing crab meat with a hammer on your neighbour apron :-) and the taste is unforgettable.
The staff is very friendly and quick. They are one of the few in Nairobi that can talk wine.
The place is not cheap but I will surely come back at least once a quarter. It is worth the money.

“Great Place for a Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

The decore and service is very good. The food is of a good quality and although a wee bit pricey, well worth the effort. It is tucked away a little at the Village Market and could be signposted a little better. All in all, well worth a visit if you are in need of a decent steak.
