.. this is a great mall. When you enter, you could be forgiven for thinking that you are in new york, london or Johannesburg as this mall has all the modern luxuries of these cities. It has a huge Nakomat and tons of nice eating and socializing spots. If malls are your thing; then don't miss this one.

First of all, due to its tragic past I did not want to visit, but changed my mind as I was staying close by. It was a first time visit, and I expected much more. As a female you wont be satisfied for clothes shopping as there are only a few non brand places and also shoe shops. Men might... More

Been 5 years since I last was here, and what a change! First thing you notice is the much better, needed, security measures taken in the whole mall after the terrible attack a couple a years back. The security is very good, and probably one of the best in any mall in Nairobi!? Inside, it's just as it was before.... More

They have some nice coffee shops and restaurants, a cinema, Nakumatt for groceries and a few outlets here and there. It's not a huge mall, but definitely one of the nicer places to spend time in Westland with high ceilings and enough light. There are some curios for tourists just up the escalator. The kids will love the toy shop... More

Westgate mall is the best mall in Nairobi. It has been re built after those unfortunate attacks and in fact the behind half of it is still being rebuilt after those unfortunate attacks. I would have loved to see a shrine to those who passed away as a timely reminder of those horrid attacks but then again I see the... More

It is high-end, but a good place to shop around. There is Nakumatt inside so you could also do your groceries.

Westgate has always been a great mall. The security is especially on point these days and there is a great selection of shops and restaurants to choose from. It always feels bright and clean. We really enjoy catching movies here. It's good to see people coming back despite the events of the past!
