“Thanks to Java house”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

I was recommended to go to this center. So i Guess my expectations was high. I got kinda dissapointed.
The mall is nothing special. They have some good stores, and a good supermarket. The Javahouse turned out to be one of my favorite Places to eat.

“A Good Shopping Center in a Convenient Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

The Ya Ya Center is located between the Junction and the Center. There are three cafes, a juice bar, and several up market restaurants. There is also a very good book shop with plenty of titles on Africa. There is a well stocked fruit market as well as a very good supermarket. There is a sporting goods store. There is public transportation available from Ya Ya Center as well as plenty of taxi cabs. The security is excellent. However, I must comment that prices at Ya Ya aren't cheap.
