Actually, most people will not go there for shopping, except for the Nakumatt supermarket that attracts a lot of customers largely from the diplomatic community in Gigiri and some shops, but it remains largely an entertainment place with some good restaurants, a cinema theatre and an exhibition hall. Its open air ambiance makes it different from some of the other... More

We have always enjoyed this mall. There is a nice ice cream place, butcher shop and fun stores. We really enjoy the food court. It seems like the places are a bit better quality than the average food court.

If you want to go bowling, swimming or just shopping this is the place to go. It is a huge outdoor mall that has shops ranging from grocery stores to high end clothing stores. It is a fun place to just walk around and they have some good places to eat. Yummy ice cream also I would highly recommend that.

Had the taste of blood in my mouth, then looked down to see blood on the chicken-and that after only ONE BITE! I showed the waiter who took the plate... More

What do you feel like doing today? Swimming, water slides, miniature golf, bowling, pool, movies, eating, shopping, banking, or just strolling? Well, Village Market has it all and does it all. It's a nice place to go any time of the week. I prefer the weekdays because it is less crowded. It definitely is a popular joint as it accommodates... More

Go for the food court, has everything from curry, grilled steaks to bratwurst, you order and it is brought to your table...Also has a 'Masai' market on Fridays...every fake trinket/curio you can think of but they will fool the folks back home, so an ideal one-stop place before you fly out.

Nice place to hang out with kids as there is a pool and a slide. Some corporate bodies like banks also hold their annual parties for their young clients. There a swimming areas for adults as well.
