The shops may be generic but when I visited during Christmas, there were some pretty good deals going on. The food court is decent but the supermarket was just brilliant. It had stocked up a variety of everything, from fruits to chocolates to traditional Thai condiments and snacks at reasonable prices and a huge variety. It had a good deli as well. I visited the mall twice during my visit. Was fairly satisfied.
