Village Market is a pretty comprehensive shopping mall with a nice choice of shops and restaurants. There is a movie theater and the Masai Market is here on Fridays. Has a nice indoor/outdoor feel to it and they have recently upgraded the food court area. Only negative comment is that it's like a rabbit warren and I have yet to... More

I love going to the village market. It's like an escape from the real world. They have wonderful art galleries and restaurants.

You'll find all the stores you need at this outdoor mall. It's a bit of a trek if you're not staying in the Gigiri/Runda area, but it's well designed and they've got live music at times.

Food court so you can get what you want here--exchange money in safe place, shop, etc. Only downside is the renovation at the moment.

I had always liked visiting this place, but recently i avoid it. The number of under-age alcoholics and smokers causing havoc and misbehaving is a put off. The management should look into this seriously.

Not only for shopping but for an outing this place can be one of the choices. With friends, you can enjoy the get together, especially the weather of Nairobi is generaly always with sunny days. Varieties of food if you seat for eating something.

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.
