What an amazing shopping mall. It is the largest in the southern hemisphere! Wear some comfortable shoes or plan more than one visit to the mall. It is quite tiresome to do it all in one day. There are a huge selection of movies, games, shops, restaurants and take-aways, as well as a waterworld! An all-in-one shopping mall!

To me Gateway has all that you would expect from a South African shopping mall and probably more than some! I admit I didn't do a lot of personal shopping there but it had all the usual shops, restaurants and food courts and amusement areas. I did indulge in some ten pin bowling which I enjoyed and there is go... More

We own timeshare in Umhlanga Rocks, so we quite often get to travel there. Going to shop at Gateway is one of the highlights for me, and if the weather is not good, I could just spend hours there, shopping, or sitting at one of the many restaurants. We are fortunate enough to go outside of school holidays, as I... More

The shopping centre is well positioned and has everything from retail stores, to restaurants and movies to designer shops. But!!!! Try and avoid in December as it was extremely busy and very noisy. I would recommend visiting but not in Decmber

This is my third trip to this specific cinema only to be offered the same useless service as before. The only good thing is the reclineable seats the table is too far to keep reaching for your drinks and eats you would think that charging such a high price for a movie ticket will get you better service but sadly...
