“Cheap n good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

7 floors of shops. Enough for me to spend 5 hours of leisure shopping. Discount of 10-50% if buy 3 or more pieces. Generally for 1 piece, I find it is still cheaper compared to outside prices. About 10mins walk from Hang Tuah monorail stn. A must-visit shopping spot when in KL.

“The only place for sane bargain shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

KL is known as a shopper's paradise, but this mall is perhaps the only place that makes the city Bangkokesque in its affordability and breadth of merchandise.

There are discounts if you buy 3 or more items, but no bargaining otherwise. Most merchandise looked better than counterparts in Thailand. The mall is immaculately maintained, and I seriously contrasted them to the malls we have in India.

It is a huge building a short walk away from the Hang Tuah station, and the only place where you can shop without thinking. We found floors full of clothes, bags and trinkets. Shoes were rather under represented for a mall its size.

There is a huge food court on level 7 where we had the best meal of our trip- Roasted duck and port with BBQ sauce. The restaurants are labeled with the food they sell, and there is an excellent selection of things to eat from Duck, Pork and other meat and poultry delicacies.

This is one place you should definitely go to if you really want to shop. Avoid China town, Petaling Street and other "street shopping" and buy something of value here, imo. Stores are large and full of merchandise. We had very little time so we were focussed on needed things, but you should give it a browse.

“Cheap shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Not a very well known place, Tried asking around bukit bintang but no one was able to gv clear direction to this place. Even the taxi driver was scratching his head and asking where is that place?? Lucky it's quite near time square & when we saw the building, we point it out to the driver. 8 levels of aircon comfort & cheap shopping. A lot
Of cheap buys Rm$5 shorts, t-shirt for adult & kids. It was like we found gold, my friend & me bought a lot from This shop in level 3 at the corner. Found Rm$10 t-shirt, blouse of good quality too at 1 of the basement shops. Most of our stuff were bought from this place. Fun & comfort as it was not crowded and we could shop in comfort. There were restaurant, cafe & bubble tea stall on nearly every floor. Good place to go, need at least a day to cover the whole building.

“Cheap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Mall with 8 levels to shop. Good deal if u buying more than 3 items. Need to bargain & bargain to clinch the deal. Noticed most shops sales staff were too pushy & many foreign staff too. Cant speak english well. Lucky we can communicate in malay so is not a problem. Waiting for taxi at taxi stand outside the mall can b frustrating

“Great mall to shop for clothings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

About 8 floors full of fashion outlets. good discounted price provided you buy more quantity. hard to bargain though. location wise its quite weird, the building stands in a middle of an old town. nearest LRT station would Hang Tuah or Pudu.
