“amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

i didnt expect much from 'just another shopping mall' but galleria is a place of its own. The design of the entire place is magnificent and its the definition of a one stop shop. Its a beautil place, plenty for kids to do while you shop or do other things and the parking lot is huge.
I know it all doesnt sound too out of this world but you only experience it when youre actually there.

“A good place to shop and eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Galleria made life much easier nowadays, no need to go to town for basic services or banking. Safaricom shop is my best shop, no need to make long ques at their moi avenue shop. The food courts provide a nice atmosphere to hang out with your friends and family as you eat and later do your household shopping at nakumatt.

“Very Expensive but at least you don't have to haggle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This mall is frequented mostly by Mzungus (white people) visiting Kenya, or Kenyans who live in Karen. It is quite expensive in the stores, but safe and relaxed.
Cars are screened as they go through a guard gate, but people can walk right in. It is just across from Bomas.
There is a Nakumatt, a Safaricom store, a Chemist/Pharmacy, Bookstore, Travel Agency, Camera Shop, Forex Exchange, several Banks and separate ATM's, a Java House, ArtCaffee, KFC and a Sports Bar upstairs called Blanco's.

Last time I was there, the road was being completely rebuilt, making traffic a nightmare. It took up to an hour for what would normally be a 5 minute ride. I'm looking forward to the completed road, part of Kenya 2030.

“A low key but expensive mall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

For me going to Galleria is complete waste of time, very few choices and very expensive. Guess its for people who live nearby but definitely go for a breakfast after a 3 hr visit to the Nairobi National Park. Since the construction of a new road on that sector the driving time has definitely reduced and more so on a Sunday morning
