“A great one-stop-shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The mall has banks, a huge supermarket, a food hall, a couple of decent cafes, lots of interesting kids' activities during the holiday season and most importantly, an affordable 24hr emergency hospital service.
On Fridays and Saturdays there is a small Masai market. This market allows the tourist or visitor to browse the stalls without being hassled by nuisance hawkers trying to sell their wares. The goods are varied interesting and of great value.
The mall is great, you get free wifi, loads of parking, kids activities and a decent pizzeria. I wish it had a movie theatre, though.
The mall is a great place to stop over when visiting the local attractions in Karen, such as the Giraffe Center, Elephant Orphanage, Karen Blixen museum...

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

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.
