“Nice break from the sun, heat and crowds”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Pretty much your standard shopping mall with branded clothes, restaurants, and a cinema as well. We made a pit stop here on our motorbike ride back from Phuket town just to escape the heat. Don't expect bargain hunting here.

The food court is worth a visit with reasonably priced selection of local Thai food. Seems to be popular with the locals working in the mall so you can be assured that you're getting authentic local Thai food that the locals actually eat instead of the "touristy" stuff that you get even from the street vendors at Karon or Patong.

“Good shopping mall for a break from the sun”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Great mall with a mix of European, American and local stores. There's a nice supermarket and boulangerie to stock up on essentials and generally a good day for those a bit sunburnt, however this place is not good for bargains, for that you need patong beach or Phuket town

“Great Shopping”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

If you willing to pay the price you will find great things to buy at this mall. it is more like the average mall as opposed to Jungceylon.

“Interesting Mall if you want to be away from the crowds”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We stopped at the mall today after our half day trip to Big Buddha etc. I found it better than Jungcelon Phuket as it was much more peaceful. The souvenir shop on the second floor in intriguing. We binged on Aunt Annie's pretzels and had some Wagamama style ramen at half the price. Zara store was a welcome find and Marks and Spencer's was a disappointment as its a small store inside the Central.
Transport back to Patong cost 500 baht so be prepared.

When you have seen one mall you've seen them all - That was my first impression.

Judging from all the tourists sitting around the mall waiting for their tour busses to come pick them up again, I would say the that they felt the same.

Located on the main road, you might say it is convenient, but quite far from Phuket town.

Don't waste you'r time going there, unless you need something special - Go to the beach instead !
