Reviewed May 29, 2013

You can do all your shopping under one roof - groceries, cloths, hardware, footwear etc. Nice to for quick meetings.
Parking can be a problem especially with the ongoing road construction

“Good, but not brilliant”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

The Yaya Centre is obviously popular. It's not big at all, so you can walk through the entire place within about half hour if you want. I didn't really see any anchor tenants, other than Foodplus and Mr Price Home.

Nothing special really, but liked the bread bakery / coffee house on the ground floor (I forgot the name!).

There is a fantastic bookstore on one of the upper levels though, in which you can just get lost in.

Reviewed May 7, 2013

There are many shops to choose from. The location is ideal and the staff in most of the shops are very friendly and professional.

“Huge!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

A great mall to visit and SHOP! I loved the Maasai market in particular. The vibrant coloured beads were so beautiful! Avoid weekends, if possible as it can be crowded.

“Older shoppping center, but still has some nice shops”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Yaya is one of the older shopping landmarks in Nairobi and is centrally located. They have a decent food court, nice bakery, and fruit and veg shop. The grocery store here (Chandarana) is a little limited, but they have certain items that are not at the other major chains (Nakumatt and Uchumi).
