Shoping in peace for good quality locally made products and souvenirs.
All the shops and restuarant accept card payments, but take cash for the restuarant tips.

A couple of great restaurant options there, Vegetarian and Itallian (with good wine prices).
Batering local market 40m away over the road if you have the constitution left in you for bartering.

I am so pleased that I found the Old Town Mall before the end of my stay in Lilongwe. It was a place of calm where you could browse at your own leisure, in sharp contrast to the frenetic, and occasionally intimidatory, atmosphere of other shopping malls and markets in the capital. The quality and range of the goods on display, all with a local provenance, was excellent whether that was tourist souvenirs, local produce or even an old-fashioned bookshop. And don't forget to have a meal in the Veg-Delight restaurant.

I consider myself very lucky to have discovered this little gem of a mall. It's small, but the vendors have amazing products. I was able to find gifts for pretty much everyone here, from beautiful custom greeting cards, art, textiles, ceramics, and more. The items I discovered are quality and not overly priced, and the service was very good too. I went early on in my visit, so I was not sure if this was normal or not. Later, I realized it was rare, so I arranged to go back and shop some more. An added bonus is that most stores accept VISA—a rare find in Malawi.

If you are this part of town don't miss Africa Habitat, finely crafted furniture and top quality gifts. A number of interesting restaurants and shops in this small mall.

One of the first places to be "referred to as a mall" in Lilongwe. Rather small with maybe about 10 or so shops but well maintained. Its located in the busy part of Lilongwe with 2 restaurants within the compound. Though small it caters for a range of stuff like optician, real estate agent, grocery shop (rather expensive), bookshop, photo framing.etc. Rather stingy on parking but very secure mall

A good place to buy gifts and locally made handcrafts, especially AfriHabitat. I bought a lot of Christmas gifts there, and now planning to go back to shop for myself!
