Its a shoppingmall - not a restaurant

But there are decent places to eat. My favorurite is the Osteria restaurant and especially the Papardelle with smoked salmon. Art Café is also nice for drinks but not for food. As a mall - its quite small - but very long so lots of walking required. Parking is also a bit limited - arriving at... read more

The food court at the village market gives the most Amazing choices from Simple Juice, Chinese delicacies to carnivorous meat pieces. I am always spoiled for choice. Village market is a great place to spend a Sunday and for sure the whole family will enjoy. Lots of entertainment activities including movies, bowling, water fun among others.

Coming to Village Market while being in Nairobi is like coming to an oasis. It is clean and you feel safe. The area is not very big and the shops and boutiques are not very many. The outside food court offers a variety of meals. It is a good chance that you will find something tasty to eat. The sitting... More

Perhaps three stars is a little mean but the main dining area had the feel of a cheap cafe although the food was of decent enough standard given it was fast food. There are some classier restaurants on the upper levels but they are - naturally - more expensive and I'm not sure are worth the money.

This area includes various shops, boutiques, open air and closed restaurants, a supermarket and even a cigar shop. It is worth to visit when you stay close to the area and would like to buy local clothes, souveniers and Kenyan food.

Shopping here is a joy but the water park is my most favorite thing about this mall. Also the layout. It's intriguing.

The village market has lovely boutiques, small eateries, a lovely bakery, the famous art cafe, the popular Friday Masai market.....and you name it. I hung around this place quite often and soaked in the ambience of the shopping place,,,,,,it was lovely to browse through some very creative boutiques selling lovely curios, outfits, shoes, handbags, costume jewellery and many more things.

Village has been an all time favorite for a lunch and drink out in weekends. Good choice quality food stalls and mini bars. The ground is mix of Kenyans and Europeans from the near by Gigiri area and UN. The kids entertainments area is currently closed off hence no fun for kids anymore, hope they come up with something for... More
