“Good outdoor shopping and extensive food court”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

You'll find all the stores you need at this outdoor mall. It's a bit of a trek if you're not staying in the Gigiri/Runda area, but it's well designed and they've got live music at times.

“Good safe place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Food court so you can get what you want here--exchange money in safe place, shop, etc. Only downside is the renovation at the moment.

“New years”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

I had always liked visiting this place, but recently i avoid it. The number of under-age alcoholics and smokers causing havoc and misbehaving is a put off. The management should look into this seriously.

“Outing & Shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Not only for shopping but for an outing this place can be one of the choices. With friends, you can enjoy the get together, especially the weather of Nairobi is generaly always with sunny days. Varieties of food if you seat for eating something.

“Just another shopping mall in Nairobi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Actually, most people will not go there for shopping, except for the Nakumatt supermarket that attracts a lot of customers largely from the diplomatic community in Gigiri and some shops, but it remains largely an entertainment place with some good restaurants, a cinema theatre and an exhibition hall. Its open air ambiance makes it different from some of the other shopping malls in Nairobi but its limited parking space makes it virtually impossible to go there over weekends and public holidays. Shopping malls in Nairobi are becoming thirteen to a dozen and more 'localized' in many areas as people avoid going great distances to visit the distant ones due to the ever worsening traffic jams in the city. OK but not something to 'wow' over.
