“Under construction!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

It was a very interesting market place where many types of people were shopping from locals to tourists. Much of it was being renovated so you had to really watch your step. There were all kinds of shops from small grocery stores to cafes and restaurants to children's toy store, t-shirt shops etc.

Wide assortment of shops. Amazing food court. Good secure environment for shopping and a meal. A lot of Africana also available for purchase for travelers.

“Very nice-looking and interesting layout, but EXPENSIVE and out of the way!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We went to this mall because we wanted to visit the Masaai Market there and only had one day to do it. It's way out from the main part of Nairobi, though I think if you're with the UN, their headquarters is nearby.

The layout was creative and very interesting. There didn't seem to be a great variety or quantity of shops and most were very upscale and very expensive. They did have most the standard shop-types, but I didn't see a good bookstore. The masaai market was a lot of fun, but did seem quite overpriced (even when you spend a LONG time trying to bargain for a good price). The food court had a lot of interesting options, mostly in the same fairly pricey range with average quality. The food court area seemed like it would've been a lot of fun and relaxing, but it was under construction and thus really not very enjoyable.

“Out of the way and confusing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Village Market seems a bit out of the way. It is a maze of shops once you find it. We had gone there with a specific restaurant in mind. The driver was a bit confused and dropped us quite far from the restaurant so we walked more than half an hour to find it. There are so many other places in Nairobi to see, that I would not make this one of them.
