Convenient if you are a newcomer to Kampala, as there are ATMs, outlets to buy a sim card, Carrefour supermarket, modern shops and restaurants. The downside are the high prices. E.g. the difference between changing cash in the city, or getting UGX out of the ABSA ATM in my case (just one transaction) was 30USD due to various extra fees and a very bad rate! Getting as much money out of hard-currency-tourists seems to be the Credo not just of the government.

There is a Millenium supermarket opposite the mall on Cooper street, but keep in mind that all imported western products are highly taxed and very expensive.

Car park on the upper floor.

An impressive modern and world-class mall. A one-stop upmarket shopping place with wide variety of shops; including fashion, cosmetics, cinema, banks and restaurants. It is well maintained, very organised and safe for shoppers.

The mall has a very good cinema up to date , with so many restaurants and above all clean restrooms . Though during holidays so many teenagers everywhere. But I love it here.

This mall is easily the best mall in Kampala. It is very westernised and being a Brit I found most stuff I needed in this one place. It is a bit pricey than other places but it definitely the place to go. The cafe downstairs is really good and KFC is there should you need it. The mall is very clean and has security at the door and also offers wheelchair access via car park which takes you inside. Good wee place

We were in acacia mal because it was raining outside and we found a very delicious ice cream. There is enough space to sit and enjoy diffrent kind of meals. But it's also possible to buy nice things.... go for shopping there.

Good restaurants and wider choice of food and drinks, some good shops who sell nice and traditional souvenirs. A good place to hang around with friends and families and to relax.

At this time it is considered to be the leading (expensive) mall in Kampala.

I was not impressed at all. No life in it. Good ice cream counter, average and below food court area, too dark, typical shoos with not too many shoppers.

There are good night clubs/bars/restaurants arround. There is also a goid night club at the top floor. But as a shopping mall? Skip it.

amongst the very few malls in kampala this one does stand ou and is a modern one with good crowd specially on weekends. they have a food court on th etopmost floor however the number of restros there was far less than my expectations from a mall in the capital city of uganda. u will be able to get almost all items of your daily groceries n needs in the supermarket in the ground floor as wella slatest gadgets and fashion accessories at other shops. the ice cream corner at the entrance is well placed n sell delicious ice creams. overall a cool place to hang out in kampala
