“A good mall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Westgate shopping mall is quite big, but I only got attracted to Nakumatt Hyper Market on the ground floor and the Planet Media Cinema on the top floor, some restaurants there were nice, but most of the shops there were just average and not so attractive to be visited for shopping purpose.

“Nice with some shops and nice restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Don't expect a shopping mall with lots of shops in Kenya. There are usually just a handful of fashion stores and none of them even coming close to what we are used to from Europe, the States or even South Africa. But this one is nicely built with some nice restaurants. Take a stroll, don't expect to find too much to buy, instead enjoy the ArtCaffe restaurant or Sushi upstairs.

“Racist maître d’hôtel at Westgate branch”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

The non-African maitre d seemed more interested in flirting with isolated female patrons of the cafe, rather than working along his job description. I sat there with intention to do my work, and could hear him blatantly voicing his dislike of my kind of folk there (I’m a bearded Sikh). I immediately packed up and left, on the way out I told one of the friendly waiters that I could hear everything he said.

But the waiters and waitresses of African descent are awesome as all Kenyans can be; the giant of a doorman has a beautiful smile!

“Modern”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

Seems like mall in the Western Countries. Very modern shops and high end restaurants. Planet Yoghurt and Onami are absolutely class

Shopping - maybe slightly expensive

“Washing at night should be done after cineplex patrons have left”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Washing of floors should be done after all cineplex patrons have left using the escalators. All access to escalators are blocked during cleaning , patrons have to use staircase.
