Wide variety of bland, not very healthy, Western style fare for those who want to believe they are not In Africa, but are really in some sunny suburb of the States. Village Market is getting run down and shabby; on a busy Saturday, the sense of shabbiness had spread to dirty tables; at least the food (in huge portions) came... More

It was a very interesting market place where many types of people were shopping from locals to tourists. Much of it was being renovated so you had to really watch your step. There were all kinds of shops from small grocery stores to cafes and restaurants to children's toy store, t-shirt shops etc.

We went to this mall because we wanted to visit the Masaai Market there and only had one day to do it. It's way out from the main part of Nairobi, though I think if you're with the UN, their headquarters is nearby. The layout was creative and very interesting. There didn't seem to be a great variety or quantity... More

Village Market seems a bit out of the way. It is a maze of shops once you find it. We had gone there with a specific restaurant in mind. The driver was a bit confused and dropped us quite far from the restaurant so we walked more than half an hour to find it. There are so many other places... More

Good restaurants, lots of family entertainment, interesting shops with stuff to buy for all ages. It is also the best place to find good meat in Nairobi.

We love this mall! This mall truly portrays the Kenyan/African culture. We love the diverse restaurants and shops to choose from and definitely feel safe with the hyped security. The security guards are very friendly and helpful which makes it even more enticing to shop or dine there...KUDOS!

They offer a wide variety of food here, however the pricing can be a bit on the upward side. The decorations and theming of the location however are truly amazing, and you will definitely enjoy the atmosphere

I had to go to Village Market. After so many numerous recommendations and talk, I found myself there. But that was a while ago. I therefore made myself relax and get a fair experience before writing this review. Village Market is located at a good place. The surrounding areas are heavily expatriate populated. This makes the prices of things in... More
