“Beautiful place with brightly colored flowers everywhere.. exotic African merchandise available :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

I visited market village with a friend and it was a great experience.. we started off by having lunch at the food court and ordered food at an indian restaurant.. the food was really good.. food court is out door but the weather there is always pleasant so i enjoyed it.. i was quite impressed by the chandelier that was made out of recycled glass bottles of coke and other soft drinks..
We started visiting shops one by one looking for something interesting to take back home.. some of the leather made stuff was really good and i got a nice folder made of leather.. some of the soaps made of organic materials were also interesting.. i saw a lot of colorful flowers everywhere and they were so clean i thought they were artificial but my friend told me they were real.. i was quite impressed by that..

overall it was an amazing experience and i recommend it to anyone who is going to visit Nairobi :)

“Great place to meet friends over Planet Yogurt and Dorman's Ice coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

One of my favorite meeting places. Casual, outside food court with plenty of variety and everyone of the many guest I have taken there has found food they enjoyed. I love the seafood place's garlic crab in a shell, Dorman's Ice coffee and Planet Yogurts, frozen yogurt. I think it is the best frozen yogurt anywhere and far better than any I've had in the USA. There very best fresh fish market in Nairobi is there at Prime Cuts Butchery.Their Malindi Sole and Parrot fish being my favorite. I dont do much other shopping there aside from Nakumart and the Green Grocer. The new Seven upscale restaurant upstairs has nice jazz and a relaxing atmosphere.
