“Best food in Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Seven serves the best food in Nairobi, without doubt. Staff is very well trainend and understand hospitality. Ingredients are fresh and well selected. The menu is refined. It is nice that the restaurant is not dominated by expats. If in Nairobi enjoy your best meal in Seven!

“Impressive service, delicious food, fantastic atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

After living in Nairobi for about two years now, I had only only heard good things about Seven Seafood & Grill. I was not dissappointed. Service was world class and the food (seafood platter starter, calamari mains) was excellent. If you haven't visited yet, go visit. Probably a good idea to book if you're going on a friday or saturday night. Enjoy!

“Fantastic food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

Absolutely fantastic service!! I had the shrimps and they were an extreme delight paired with a glass of Chardonnay. A recommendation made by the waiter and the pairing was perfect. Slight body odour issue with a few of the other waiters that came to serve. Apart from that, Seven is the place to go if you're looking for some delicious shrimp and service.

“Excellent again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Having now been to both branches of Seven, it's obvious that they are the place to go to for excellent service, delicious food and great atmosphere. I think I prefer the setting of this one because it's not actually inside a shopping mall but adjacent and there are a couple of other cafe/restaurants next door. Nice outdoor terrace even though it's overlooking the car park. Very nice welcome although we hadn't booked and the place was packed except for 2 tables. The bar area is great for hanging out before tucking in to smoked tuna and lobster cappuccino starters, followed by giant tiger prawn and prawn masala mains and rounded off by a yummy trio of crème brûlée. Great stuff, we'll be back!

“Please make reservations”

The place is always packed for obvious reasons. The food was all great, the service impeccable and the evening lovely. For sea food this is the place to go.
