“appalling service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I went to Seven (Village Market) for a friend's birthday dinner. It is completely overrated. Firstly, they kept us waiting at the bar 25 minutes before we were seated. The bartender didn't even know how to mix drinks! Then I ordered the 'all you can eat' ribs and was told I could only have an extra half portion. When the ribs did come, they were all fat and no meat. They were therefore inedible. I sent them back and they were added to my bill! When I queried the bill, I was told I had to pay for them even though they were inedible. Overall, the service is appalling and the restaurant is disappointing. It is NOT good!

“Best restaurant in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Seven is specialised in Seafood so if you want meat go to Carnivore or Gaucho. Seven is known for its fish speciality and starters which were amazing. The service was ok for Nairobi standards..the wine was good also although not such a great selection. We hd to sit at the bar as there was no empty tables being a Friday. They also have a lounge area just across thats serves nibble food

“In the end it has to be about the food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

My wife and I went to Seven on recommendation of friends but were quite disappointed in the food.
The Good: Nice atmosphere and great service. Onion soup was quite tasty.
The Bad: We both went for the steak and lobster. The steak, while having a nice taste, was small, 1/3 gristle, tough and dry. The lobster was just okay. Had a house red wine in a huge glass with barely any wine in it.
The ugly: Paid $100 for two people and left hungry.

“Seven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

When in a seafood restaurant - eat seafood. I made the mistake on my first visit to order meat - never, never again. The seafood is well worth coming back again and again.

“Lovely cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Went there for lunch with a friend;
1) The ambience and general outlook of the place is very nice and makes one relax especially for corporate staff who are in busy offices.
2) The service was execellent the staff are polite and professional they kept us upto date on the progress of our orders.
3) The food was lovely and the potions were very generous
4) Ordered French fries and steak and I must say this is one place that has lovely mouth watering fries. The steak was also lovely. I would recommend the food any day
