    Hi! I'm about to start a website where I review services of other companies. I just want to know what WordPress theme who will be the best for that purpose?

    I'm looking at the "sahifa theme" by theme forest. But before I decide I want to know what other people thinks.

    Sahifa is awesome for the cause. You can try out the Elegant themes too. They have a few good ones which will suite your need. Divi being one of those.

    I don't think that "shafia theme" is proper for reviews, it seems like a theme for news website, at least to me. Try and search for review themes if that's the main purpose of your blog.

    I will usually pick a theme with a clean design and use plugins for extra review features, such as WP Product Review.

    Hi again.

    I just bought the Sahifa Theme for $10 from a reseller. It was too cheap not to buy:)

    I recommend you to start making actual reviews and keep looking. The perfect theme does not exist so as much as you write you will start finding themes you like...

    I've worked with WP and found that any theme can work for reviews. The key is to find a theme that is easy for you to work with and have easy to use built in customization capability. I tend to use widgets and or plugins to insert my top reviews that are a must read for any reader coming to the blog. This way the critical review you want all visitors to read is on every page or at least has a link to it from every page on the blog.
