“Nice shopping mall.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Village Market is a pretty comprehensive shopping mall with a nice choice of shops and restaurants. There is a movie theater and the Masai Market is here on Fridays. Has a nice indoor/outdoor feel to it and they have recently upgraded the food court area. Only negative comment is that it's like a rabbit warren and I have yet to see a comprehensive directory of shops. There is a bit of everything there from shisha to shoes. Do wish the bookshop was better.

“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.
