Nice place

We ate breakfast at the Artcaffe and did some shopping. Staff in the mall seem very friendly and there was a good selection of shops and a couple of cafes. It's not the easiest place to navigate around,

The YaYa Centre was very convenient to where we stayed and for a multistory complex it had pretty much everything we needed. There's a Javahouse, a grocery store, clothing and electronics shops, souvenir shops and on certain days a Maasai market on the roof.

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

Where to begin? Security have no idea what the search us for and parking is a nightmare, if you thought the parking expansion would help them am sorry because it seems to be worse now with traffic flowing the the main road! Huge nightmare!

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
