“Good shopping centre + good food court”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Go for the food court, has everything from curry, grilled steaks to bratwurst, you order and it is brought to your table...Also has a 'Masai' market on Fridays...every fake trinket/curio you can think of but they will fool the folks back home, so an ideal one-stop place before you fly out.

“Swimming area is gorgeous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Nice place to hang out with kids as there is a pool and a slide. Some corporate bodies like banks also hold their annual parties for their young clients. There a swimming areas for adults as well.

“Bland and stodgy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

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 quickly. Not a place you would go out of your way to eat in, more a place to grab something while shopping - but only if you really have to. Nairobi has so much more to offer if you get out of a sense of denial that you are actually in Africa.

“Under construction!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

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.
