“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We were really excited and had set aside a whole day to shop here, but we were quite underwhelmed. The Microsoft store was fantastic and a great shopping experience, as was the M&M store (but after visiting the London one this one is TINY in comparrison). Food hall was just ok, I was excited about Pinkberry but they were out of the 2 flavours I actually would have had. I wasn't impressed with most of the clothes stores and found very little that interested me and the Mac store was so so busy, you could hardly move so I would suggest going to one of the department stores if you are going for MAC stuff.
I think after going o Millenia first, this mall was a bit disappointing, I really did expect more from a US mall, and actually, I prefer the good old Metro Centre in the UK (and that's sayin a lot). We spent 3 hours here before walking to Best Buy and going back to the hotel.

“A great place for tourists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I feel that this mall is a great place for tourists to go when they want to experience typical "American" shopping. Large shops, an absolutely delicious food court, and a variety of different types of shops leaves this place as a great place for tourists to experience. I love coming back to here. The Japanese food in the food court is pretty much unmissable too!

“Not as good as it used to be.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We have been going here for many years, and sadly have seen so many shops that we have loved disappear. Waldenbooks, FYE, Hallmark and Yankee Candle.
We have now found another Mall in the area which has all the shops we want and will be going there in the future. Shame but no point going if it doesn't have what you want from a mall.

“No McDonalds here...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Not a regular at McDonalds but just fancied one, the food court has lots of the usuals but no McDonalds. Anyway, there are lots of shops here, not just selling designer but also bargain stuff too. Pretty much like meadowhall, white rose or Trafford centre, except the parking is twice the size.

“M&M Store”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Love this store, found out what color of M&M I am. Bought some fun things, especially M&M's. The mall is huge, with a hotel in the middle. A lot of the stores, like all other malls, cater to the young, which I definitely am not, but it was fun.
