Now, for perspective, we're living in Ethiopia so our perspective may be off for people visiting from other places. But, there's a pretty decent selection of clothing, electronics, sporting goods stores and restaurants. We were particularly excited about the frozen yogurt store. The prices aren't cheap but it was nice to see the large selection. Also, the Galleria's location in... More

You may find things a bit expensive at Galeria but for a stop-over with friends moving for safari tours, it's a nice time to take a break having coffee there before going to visit the next place.

The mall has banks, a huge supermarket, a food hall, a couple of decent cafes, lots of interesting kids' activities during the holiday season and most importantly, an affordable 24hr emergency hospital service. On Fridays and Saturdays there is a small Masai market. This market allows the tourist or visitor to browse the stalls without being hassled by nuisance hawkers... More

i didnt expect much from 'just another shopping mall' but galleria is a place of its own. The design of the entire place is magnificent and its the definition of a one stop shop. Its a beautil place, plenty for kids to do while you shop or do other things and the parking lot is huge. I know it all... More

Galleria made life much easier nowadays, no need to go to town for basic services or banking. Safaricom shop is my best shop, no need to make long ques at their moi avenue shop. The food courts provide a nice atmosphere to hang out with your friends and family as you eat and later do your household shopping at nakumatt.

This mall is frequented mostly by Mzungus (white people) visiting Kenya, or Kenyans who live in Karen. It is quite expensive in the stores, but safe and relaxed. Cars are screened as they go through a guard gate, but people can walk right in. It is just across from Bomas. There is a Nakumatt, a Safaricom store, a Chemist/Pharmacy, Bookstore,... More

For me going to Galleria is complete waste of time, very few choices and very expensive. Guess its for people who live nearby but definitely go for a breakfast after a 3 hr visit to the Nairobi National Park. Since the construction of a new road on that sector the driving time has definitely reduced and more so on a... More

I love the extra large parking space, the restaurant varieties and the shopping. If you love shopping spare some 2 hours or so for this. I love the Art cafe restaurant on the ground floor especially their gas heaters in the evening when its gets really cold. The java coffee house is also good to sample.

This is one of the many new shopping centers in Nairobi. The mall is very nice and clean. It has a wide variety of retailers that you can make purchases from and the prices really aren't too bad. They have some really good choices in terms of food, and the waiters will always be ready to take your order in... More
