The former NUSS Guild House bungalow at Adam Road has transformed into a restaurant and art gallery featuring local and regional art pieces. Sit back and have a sip of wine or have a quick bite while viewing through the pieces of art works that are available for sale.
I never have a good impression of 7 Adam initally. We were there for dinner last year and the food was not up to expectation. The pilaf rice was tasteless, the duck confit was too tough, the baba pork ribs was too sweet… it just didn’t work for me and quite a disappointment. So when the restaurant manager contacted me and told me they had changed their chef and menu, it took me a while to consider if I should give them another chance. I am glad I did.

Arriola, helming the kitchen, 7 Adam’s new menu offers European cuisine with a dash of Asian influence, giving guests a multi-dimensional palate experience. He was with The Halia and joined 7Adam since October 2012. If you have been to Halia, you probably will remember Chef Reynaldo’s signature Sauteed Risotto Soja. Chef had previously spent five years in France, training under French chefs like Thierry Marx at the two Michelin-starred Chateau Cordeillan Bages. This dish was actually a challenge set by Chef Marx, that is to cook a dish that represented Reynaldo’s home, and he came up with this. It has since been in the menu at any restaurant he works in. Chef’s Risotto of Sprouts ($22) is not an ordinary risotto dish. The risotto was made from bean sprouts and served with braised oysters, sliced truffle, emulsion of mushrooms and wine. The crunchiness of the bean sprouts provided the “mouth feel” which ordinary rice could not have achieved. Wagyu Rump Steak ($30) is not the best steak I have eaten but still good for its price. The meat is flavourful and tender and served with ginger, oyster sauce, trio of capsicums, truffled baby potato mash with bacon crisps. Asian Spiced Australian Lamb Racks ($42) had the lamb marinated in asian spice for 6 hours. The marinade permeates the lamb’s meat before grilling it to medium. It sits beautifully on a bed of ratatouille peppers and sauteed potatoes, served with rosemary and port wine jus. The lamb slid off the bones easily and ratatouille gives a tangy flavour to the dish, which is an interesting twist to the classic. Overall, I think Chef Reynaldo has displayed daring creativity by giving his European dishes an Asian twist, such as adding Southeast Asian spices to them. The food is good enough for repeated visits and the prices are friendly.
I had the most appalling experience at 7 Adam this morning. I had successfully placed a reservation for 7 to celebrate my birthday over brunch at 7 Adam at 11am, which was the stated opening hour on the restaurant's Fb, amongst other websites. I have a revs code and email. Upon arriving at 11.10am, we were puzzled by the 'Closed' signage hanging on an opened gate, a visible dark restaurant with tables still in upturned position and the front glass door locked. The restaurant was clearly not ready for receiving patrons for weekend lunch. I called hungrygowhere to double check and was told that the restaurant opens at 11am. Meanwhile, some cars which have arrived had turned and left, presumably feeling as quizzical as we were. About 15 minutes had ensued when a uniformed staff appeared at the main door of the restaurant. We asked her if it opens at 11am and she said no it opened at 11.30am and if we wanted, she would open the front door. We were astonished because we had made a reservation for 11am and she seemed to suggest that we had made a mistake, the restaurant will remain closed unless we wanted to enter. Her tone was one of disinterest. Considering that we have with us a hungry 10 month old baby and a 2 year old toddler, we decided that it was unwise to enter and wait indefinitely for the tables to be set, kitchen to be set up before our ours could be taken and served. We left disappointed. Besides my birthday celebration, I was considering 7 Adam as a potential venue for my daughter's one year old celebration. Indeed, the art pieces energized the previous guild house with a warm vibe and a buzz. However, the bewildering lack of professionalism and explanation on the part of 7 Adam points to its undependability and lack of grace, thereby skidding my enthusiasm for the place to a halt, even before I could sample the dishes
Amazing Food and Experience... I was craving red meat, so when I received my meal, it was practically melting in my mouth and of course I had to pair it with a glass of red wine, I asked my server what they would suggest as a good pair and they were right it was superb... I'm from NYC so I'm pretty hard to please but when I went to 7adam I was feeling right at home... I know this is kind of petty but seriously the decor of this place is so cool! with all the art everywhere and the outside patio with live music. I loved my experience here!
