“A feeling of greyness”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

We lived in Kenya 10 years ago and always enjoyed a visit to the Sarit. We returned for a holiday in July and visited the Sarit. Sadly nothing has moved on in it. If anything the aisles in Uchumi have become even narrower. The food court seems to have the same restaurants, and the same chairs - but the food (esp. the pizza) was actually quite good. The place seems tired and we were struck by the newer Westlands Mall nearby which seems shiny and new. Come on Sarit we remember you fondly.

“Oldest Mall in Nairobi”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

This was Nairobi's first shopping mall, and though they have tried to modernize it, it is still ugly and cleanliness is generally lacking. Parking is available, but often difficult to find. The food court is excessively noisy, with few edible items. Has some good shops, though.

“TRYING TO COMPETE”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

With the opening of Westgate nearby, Sarit Centre looks modest by comparison. There have been some efforts to improve its appearence. But Westgate is spanking new, so we go to Sarit less often than we used to.

“Generic mall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

When there was only the Sarit Centre, it was a good mall to find a few things, have a bite and catch a film. However, as Nairobi has developed, malls have inevitably popped up all over the place and the Sarit is no longer worth the traffic, in my view. The traffic around the Sarit is awful almost any time of day. The parking is dreadful and one can easily spend 20 minutes going round and round praying to the parking space fairy! The shops are all fine but now they have other branches in easier to get to malls, it makes little sense shlepping all the way to the Sarit. If I am making the effort, I would rather go to Westgate mall round the corner which has parking space, is a bit nicer and more modern and is just a generally better mall, in my opinion.
