“High end shopping mall”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

A big bright and modern mall. Has a high end Nakumatt which seems to sell most things however shop floor staff are not very knowledgable or helpful. The usual range of high street shop brands and a cinema. the food court are is currently closed and boarded over but there is an Art caffe, subs sandwich shop and a pizza/chicken place plus a few coffee shops.

Very expensive for most things but there is a good photography shop where you can bargain a little. As said in other reviews, bring your money, you'll need lots of it.

good parking facilities with lots of security .

“Art caffe Westgate”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

A bustling cafe but somehow once you are settled you do not hear the buzz of conversation. You can either sit in the verandah for smokers or in side where there is also wifi for clients. Two of us went for a business lunch and ordered caesar salads with tuna which were brought fresh and with speed and we had very healthy portions with cappuccinos afterwards. The service was excellent and although we ate and left pretty quickly due to our work schedules, we did not feel rushed in what turned out to be a busy lunch time for the cafe. It is very popular for shoppers taking a rest, a meeting place with lots of laptops open and also mothers resting with babies in push chairs. Very welcoming and certainly an experience to repeat.

A brand new, state of the art shopping centre with a price tag to match!
Full of all the high end shops & cafes with individual boutiques selling everything you could possibly want.
Good security & plenty of parking but bring your wallet
