“Huge mall, lots of international-brand shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed the 12 straight hours we spent at Gateway. We had serious clothes shopping in mind, so we unfortunately missed some of the other entertainment options but there was a great selection of anything you could want, though the prices weren't amazing they were what you can generally expect to pay on the same brands in other places. This is really a one stop shop with everything a person could want in one place. Getting there without a car was a bit of a challenge though! We had great Italian food in the Mezzanine. If you want to see it all, you'll need more than one day!

“same old, same old... only larger”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

seen one, seen them all.
Thats what it felt like. Same brand names, same food operations, same movies. the attractions did however, include a climbing wall and wave surfing and go-carting which was an added bonus, especialy when you want those pesky kids to get out of the way of serious shopping. yep, you gotta be a sean shopper to go through all the shops in a day. lots of choice and what the big names call deals.
In the big scheme of things, it was not much different to any other mall, except for the scale. But hey, if youre into crowds, this is the mall to be at. The place was busy!
Guess the durban crowds like the mall. what can i say? its also a few minutes from the Umhlanga beaches.
cant go wrong there.
