“Older shoppping center, but still has some nice shops”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Yaya is one of the older shopping landmarks in Nairobi and is centrally located. They have a decent food court, nice bakery, and fruit and veg shop. The grocery store here (Chandarana) is a little limited, but they have certain items that are not at the other major chains (Nakumatt and Uchumi).

“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.

The Yaya Centre is located along Hulinghum about 10 minutes drive from the City Centre. The shopping mall host several shops that range from Art Gallery, a food court, a bar plus several clothing shops. There is the open air Masaai Market on Sundays where one can buy great Kenyan artifacts.
