“Very nice-looking and interesting layout, but EXPENSIVE and out of the way!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

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 of shops and most were very upscale and very expensive. They did have most the standard shop-types, but I didn't see a good bookstore. The masaai market was a lot of fun, but did seem quite overpriced (even when you spend a LONG time trying to bargain for a good price). The food court had a lot of interesting options, mostly in the same fairly pricey range with average quality. The food court area seemed like it would've been a lot of fun and relaxing, but it was under construction and thus really not very enjoyable.

“Out of the way and confusing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

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 in Nairobi to see, that I would not make this one of them.

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.

“Gorgeous Mall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

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!

“Pretty good stuff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

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
