~ About No.7 ~

No.7 is a restaurant with a difference. Based at the Kick4Life Centre in Maseru, Lesotho’s capital city, we offer great food in a friendly environment with stunning views across the city. All of our profits are pumped back into Kick4Life’s charitable work, so just by dining with us you are helping to change the lives of young people in the community. What’s more, our staff team, under the stewardship of our experienced Head Chef and Restaurant Manager, consists of former and current participants undergoing a structured training program aimed at developing skills for a successful career in the catering and hospitality industries.

As well as the restaurant, No.7 runs a catering service for a wide selection of internal and external events from conferences and team-building days to dinner parties and weddings. We can seat over 100 people at one time with indoor and outdoor seating areas. The outdoor area includes 2 wood burners and a braai. Our cuisine is a freshly prepared menu that expresses a European style with a Lesotho touch.
