My Go-to place during my French School days

Used to go to the Yaya Centre on my breaks from LDD. I don't know how it is now but I'm sure it can only get better. good memories from there.

It was a good mall. Nice place to hang out with friends and/or family. Decent restaurants(especially the Idian ones). You can shop, eat, and chill, all in one place. Nice.

Good mall located in Hurlingham, Argwings Khodek road. Has a good supermarket as well as lots of other shops, also popular with expats who live in the area.

Yaya is a pretty good shopping mall to visit when you have some time to kill. The bookshop (book stop) at yaya is pretty good and the guys know their books, there are 2 or three eating places therefore food is not a problem. The kids shops would be good for parents. Just be warned that items are not the... More

I have eaten at the Food loft previously but had never eaten at the Italian restaurant. We decided to try it and we ordered a Pizza and a pasta dish. The pasta dish was not very tasty and the pizza was not nice at all. I could not eat much more than a few mouthfuls of the pasta. It was... More

Thank you for the review. We embrace customer views so that we may improve the customer experience. Good security is a big part of the customer experience and that is why checks are thorough. Whereas this may cause a bit of a traffic bottleneck at the main entrance, it is necessary for the trained guards to do a proper job.... More

Compared to other malls around,Yaya can be almost classified as 'small', but it has a well blended variety that is pretty much sufficient and the location is also convenient enough.
