Gateway pretty much covers it all from large chain stores to unique boutiques, food, movies with a premier section and a fun area for kids of all ages. Generally plenty of parking

Situated in Umhlanga, not too far from Durban CBD. Ample safe and secure parking. All relevant major shops available. Many exclusive shops and plenty restaurants. Movies cinemas available. Open from 09h00 daily. Taxi drop off and pick up area available.

The service at the various shops and kiosks was so bad as to make us watch the film we chose and to leave as quickly as possible. With the high rate of unemployment you would think that people would take care of their jobs. Not the case at all.

It has a good selection of big brand shops, so keep the pockets full to burn all the holes. It also have a good selection of restaurants & eateries to enjoy. This mall is definitely more beautiful than Canal Walk, Cape Town.

Everything you need under one roof. The variety of shops and restaurants is mind blowing and will definitely address each and every taste. If you have the time go see an IMAX movie on the top floor and have a pizza at Col'Cacchio.
