“Chinese Restaurant Yaya Centre Food Court”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Anyone visiting Yaya Centre in Nairobi should head for the Chinese Restaurant on the 2nd Floor food court. The food is generally excellent and quickly prepared. With the arrival of more mainland Chinese the 'standard' menu is being extended to include more unusual dishes. Ask for the Chinese Rice Pudding - delicious chinese dessert made of sticky rice, raisins, dates, nuts etc. Recommended.

“Convenient shopping mall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Yaya centre is a good size mall popular with locals and expats. The mall has a good selection of shops that cover a broad range of products: fresh produce, clothing, sporting goods, shoes, leather products, chemists, bookshop with a very large variety of books on Africa, and local curios. You can even find shop selling musical instruments. Service providers cover banking, travel, unisex beauty parlor, mobile phone services. Food court on second floor with italian, indian, and chinese; bakery and coffee shops. The mall feels secure and appears to be well run. Stores open everyday. Masai market on Sundays. Got there by hotel taxi but parking seems to be adequate with outdoor and basement parking, automated ticketing.

“Yaya - Modern style shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

A small shopping but with the essential, very clean and with a nice food court. I like the two christian shops there. Find christian music, inspirational books, bags, fridge magnets, postcards, DVDs, posters and many other items. Nice place to go.

“Yaya Apartments”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Yaya Apartments are very overpriced. The building is presented nicely but the service appalling. Problems are not addressed or solved. It's a too bad approach. Walls paper thin and staff must hear the noise before they may THINK about doing something. It is appalling. They are constantly renovating other apartments, they call it works. The noise is so loud you can't hear on the phone or your TV. This is 6 days per week. 8am to 6pm. I would highly recommend not staying here.
