Great mall, shop till you drop, top tier shops and even those that are easy on the pocket. Open till late so the fun doesn't stop.

The Mall is like any other upmarket mall anywhere in the World . Nothing to write home about . The Science Centre has moved out . 3D Simulator rides are probably better in your own neck of the woods back home in Charleytown . The only saving grace was the Central Shooting Fountain with the pleasant seating . According to... More

Plenty to see and do. What you would expect from a massive shopping centre. All the top clothing brands, eateries and entertainment. When in town, definitely a place I frequent.

Great Mall but just too large especially when going with kids. I placed my little one in a trolley and wheeled her along to the ride. She had an awesome time looking @ all the shops and sites :)

We have been to the Gateway shopping mall countless times when on holiday in Umhlanga every year. Like other reviews mentioned, this mall offers entertainment for young and old. We always watch a movie at Gateway on a rainy day and love to play bowling and when our two teenage boys are with us, I am outnumbered by the three... More

We have visited this mall frequently over the years and it provides you with an above average shopping experience. We would not choose it as our #1 choice Mall in the Durban area, which in our opinion is won hands down by the Pavilion. Gateway does has one advantage and that is its outdoor entertainment area - very innovativen

I travel to Umhlanga Durban every 2 weeks, and every visit I spend time at Gateway. I have not once had a bad experience there. It is always clean, and there are so many activities to keep children and adults alike entertained. There are plenty of restaurants and take-away fast food places, and coffee shops to suit every palate. There... More

With over 400 Stores and almost 100 restaurants, one can spend a whole day there and not realize the passage of time. And don’t worry if you have missed your morning exercise, the Shopping Complex stretches one km from end to end. And to relax, there are some 20 movie theatres to choose from ! My wife and younger two... More
