“It is like a white man's den”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Beside Nakumatt and the food courts do not think it is worthwhile. The masai market is lovely but the same sae stuff for the last 6 yrs! Needs new ideas , fresh marketing and excitement. Sometimes it filled with fake diplomatic staff who have no option but to hang out in the food court! Not a mall or not a place to make a stop if on vacation- meaning- not a tourist attraction.

“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.
