“It's hard to use terms like "average" when the average dispensaries in the area are so high. But not much sticks out above other East Bay dispensaries.
Quality: yes they have good strains but unlike every other dispensary around, test results are not emblazoned on their product. Besides a sign that says they test, there is no easily viewable proof.
Service/knowledge: I have spoken with one person there that easily doled out advice and information. The several other times the folks either didn't know or were too aloof to share with me. Again this is in contrast to the exuberance of most of the budtenders in the other East Bay dispensaries.
Price: Oy! 7Stars is quite easily the most expensive in the East Bay. I find that they charge $15-20 more, for some of the strains that I'm interested in. For example, they sell ACDC for $55 1/8. I can drive a bit further to Berkeley and on average I can get it for $27-35.
Location: Yes, it's conveniently right off the freeway. But unless you've been there before you will get lost the first time. And during peak shopping times the parking, think crowded mall parking.
Overall: I'm glad they are here but for me they leave a lot to be desired. I wish they'd replace all of the customer service PR/marketing language you can read for them and actually show that in their actions.
P.s. Yes, it's a cute place with a good selection for such a small place.

“On my mission to try all clubs in my surrounding area, I came across this one. I did get a little lost in the mall, but eventually located it and went on in. The security at the front door was a little grouchy, but whatever it's all good we all have our days. The intake for my first time visit was quick! The selection was awesome, I like how they have some items on display so you can view at your own convenience. My bud tender was chill, knowledgeable. Not that I asked to many questions because of my anxiety LoL, but I managed to get what I wanted (vape set up) and left. Then returned five minutes later because I forgot flower...overall I would return to this location, I like how it's small and tucked in an Asian mall with a great selection. ”
“This dispensary is really cute and it's typically my go-to. The Budtenders are friendly and helpful. I'm kind of picky and I always really appreciate it when I can speak to a knowledgable Budtender. As a type 1 diabetic I liked that I was able to find edibles that I could have, even though I'm usually just there for flower. Great place, decent selection, fantastic staff.”
“I think it's a quick stop location. Compared to upscaled dispensers 7 stars is like a stop for cheap convenient gas.
The product they had was served in bags and the vendor kept coming with more junk behind the counter.
So many stems and very leafy.
Pretty much if I was with family and I wanted to show them a good time. This place is not that.”
