“Pretty convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Great shops, Great restaurants. I love the quality of the merchandise i always get from there. Parking can be a bit confusing but there is plenty of it.
There are also plenty of cabs who seem to know their way around the city.
The security is also pretty great here..

“Yay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I love yaya centre. Its as if they can tell what i need even before i need it. I love the security at the entrance, its comforting. The shops are brilliant and placed well. I genuinely love this mall. Great job!

“Good for shopping and eating. Alexanders downstairs has great pastries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

You can do all your shopping under one roof - groceries, cloths, hardware, footwear etc. Nice to for quick meetings.
Parking can be a problem especially with the ongoing road construction

“Good, but not brilliant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

The Yaya Centre is obviously popular. It's not big at all, so you can walk through the entire place within about half hour if you want. I didn't really see any anchor tenants, other than Foodplus and Mr Price Home.

Nothing special really, but liked the bread bakery / coffee house on the ground floor (I forgot the name!).

There is a fantastic bookstore on one of the upper levels though, in which you can just get lost in.

There are many shops to choose from. The location is ideal and the staff in most of the shops are very friendly and professional.
