“An oasis of organisation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

When I was getting a little tired of the chaos of Nairobi, Westgate Mall was a great little oasis to enjoy clean, calm corridors and nice cafes and restaurants. A central atrium lights up the centre, with several floors of shops easily accessed via the stairs, elevators or lifts. With a Nakumut supermarket on site, the Mall was a great place to relax over a coffee for a couple of hours, then stock up on supplies. I didn't use it, but there seemed to be ample parking out the front, or secure parking underneath the Mall.
The Dormans kiosk on the ground floor was excellent, as was the Artcaffe booth on the first floor. For a proper sit-down meal, there was the Artcaffe on the ground floor.
Security guards man the doors and roam the floors, so you can expect a hassle free time at Westgate. A good place to know about when visiting Nairobi.
