Canal Walk is a massive mall situated quite close by to the Ratanga Junction Theme Park. There are several entrances to the mall which are luckily well signposted confirming which major retailers are situated closest to that entrance. The parking area is boomed and one has to pay to park. The interior of the mall has an air of opulence... More

Tasha's in Canal Walk have very innovative salads and their breakfast is excellent. i have seen people enjoying all dishes ordered. There is always a queue. Very good sign. The setting is as nice as can be in a shopping centre. Staff very well trained and very professional. It is a pleasure to go there every time.

Like the subject says, the place is great with a nice offering of different shops. The sales assistants in the stores can appear a bit snob sometimes. It was sales period when I went so I had tons of bags in my hands which gave me more importance to their eyes. I would go back anyway.

From normal chainstores to more boutique-type stores, CW has it all. Large cinema complex, good food court options and a very clean environment completes the picture. Parking isn't optimal as it's a far walk no matter where you park, and especially at night after a late movie it can be a bit daunting to walk to your car. Take extra... More

It is a nice mall the Canal Walk Shopping Centre. However, it’s extremely confusing getting around. There are no maps and you’re bound to get lost. Unfortunately, there is also no free car parking.

The mall is huge. There isn't a store that you cannot find. It was very busy when we went, especially around the food court and cinema, which seems to be in the middle of the mall. It is open between 9 and 9, which was helpful.

One of the best shopping centres in South Africa. Wonderful layout and attention to detail in the interior is out of this world. All the retail therapy you will ever need. All the brand shops are there.
