I often go to the Seven restaurant for both personal and business dinners. From my point of view is among the top 3 restaurants of Nairobi, and the best one without doubts for seafood. Food and atmosphere are great, an the personnel is nice and well prepared. The position is probably not the best, as it is located in a... More

My brother lives in Nairobi and took us to the abc plaza. My brother was very surprised when the staff told us that the restaurant had been open for 3 years - perhaps a better advertising campaign would ensure that new customers are aware of the venue. We viewed the restaurant menu and decided to reserve a table that evening.... More

We stumbled across this restaurant in the middle of a casual shopping mall in Nairobi. Because Nairobi is landlocked we were a bit skeptical but intrigued by the plentiful seafood and shellfish on the menu. We started slowly to test the water with an order of baked oysters. They were prepared wonderfully. We had two more orders. We then ordered... More

...for something completely different in a restaurant, the original branch of which (ABC Plaza) is best known for its fish. Delicious, with a crust worthy of a London pub. Service at lunch was a little slow, but friendly. Much better than average lunch stop.

I have dined at Sevens on several occasions, the ambiance is very good and the food has been good, when the owners are present. However when the owners of the restaurant are not there, the staff are not able to perform on their own. Now that they have opened another restaurant, the owners are rarely there. Yesterday evening, I ordered... More

However the taste of food is deserved waiting. I propose the seafood salade as starters. Especially the toast sauce is delicious.

It was a busy Friday night, and the service was very slow and the waiters were overwhelmed. It took 15mins for us to receive our drinks, and another 20mins for them to take our food order. The food was good but some items were missing from the menu that night, not sure why.

We all enjoyed the seafood (i have posted pics). It was fantastic. My mouth wanted everything on the menu. I prefer the dinner menu to the lunch menu though both are awesome. Stephene was the best, he infected us with a smile and also recommended very good wine. This place is still my fav for seafood in Nairobi.

Others may have felt their red snapper a little dry, but the mixed traditional fish stew was first class, as was the stuffed squid. Their list matches this with an interesting range of white wines, with the Sauvignon blancs standing out. But it isn't cheap, but arguably is good value if they maintain that quality of cooking.

Thank Nigel C
