Great upmarket mall in one of Nairobi's high-end suburbs. There is something for everyone. A vibrant food court for families and teens and lovely restaurants if looking for something more formal. Good variety of shops as well.

Decent outlet with an outdoors setting and good food but not worth the traffic if you are not nearby. They have an excellent curio shop upstairs, a good cafe, a big supermarket, a couple shops that sell nice African clothes and a wonderful art shop.

This place could double as a labyrinth with up and down and winding aisles amid a variety of stores that range from chic local arts and crafts to outdated European fashion. Worth visiting to kill time. Is in a kind of remote area of Nairobi not far from where most embassies are located which means that on the way you... More

This is an interesting mall, though it used to be more interesting when I visited during its early days. On this return visit I found the place to have added extensions very haphazardly and made the moving about and looking at shops and restaurant very confusing. Ugly is a good adjective. However, we were here for a quick lunch and... More

Great place to get some groceries, clothing or nice international food. It is located right across the Tribe Hotel. It is a safe place to go, since it has security guards everywhere. There is also a frozen yogurt shop, a nice Italian restaurant in the second floor.

I only had an hour in this place but grabbed a quick lunch at one of the kiosks, called Orchid. The combination kebab with garlic chips was incredible. Moist, marinade meats and real potato fries doused in garlic sauce. Yum
