“Galleria Mall Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Although I am a frequent visitor to Nairobi this was my first actual visit to Galleria Mall. It is a very pleasant shopping mall with a good range of shops. The Nakumatt is certainly one of the better Nakumatts and the other shops make it worth while paying a visit. There is a nice rnage of places to eat and the Java is particularly nice with a large outside seating area simiar to the one at The Junction Mall. A very very large, secure & well maintained car park helps with the experience.

It is certainly worth a visit should you be in Nairobi.

“Probably the best "typical" mall in East Africa”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

If U R homesick for the Edmonton Mall (the world's largest) or the Mall of America (#2), then this is an OK place to visit. If you want to visit Africa this is not the place.

“Pretty Decent Place to Shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Now, for perspective, we're living in Ethiopia so our perspective may be off for people visiting from other places. But, there's a pretty decent selection of clothing, electronics, sporting goods stores and restaurants. We were particularly excited about the frozen yogurt store. The prices aren't cheap but it was nice to see the large selection.

Also, the Galleria's location in the Karen section of Nairobi keeps you out of downtown Nairobi traffic. That said, there's currently major road construction in the area.

“Nakumatt Galeria”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

You may find things a bit expensive at Galeria but for a stop-over with friends moving for safari tours, it's a nice time to take a break having coffee there before going to visit the next place.

“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...
