“Just like the others...?”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

The mall was a bit average compared to, say, Westgate. It has the same feel to it as Junction, so if you've been to one, you've basically seen the other one. It's also smaller.

“Shopping Centre”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

As modern shopping centres go it wasn't bad. My daughter and I managed to get a manicure and pedicure without booking, we got a Kenyan simm sorted, had a pleasant lunch and checked out the books and went back briefly a second time, for the cashpoints.

“Galleria Mall Nairobi”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Although I am a frequent visitor to Nairobi this was my first actual visit to Galleria Mall. It is a very pleasant shopping mall with a good range of shops. The Nakumatt is certainly one of the better Nakumatts and the other shops make it worth while paying a visit. There is a nice rnage of places to eat and the Java is particularly nice with a large outside seating area simiar to the one at The Junction Mall. A very very large, secure & well maintained car park helps with the experience.

It is certainly worth a visit should you be in Nairobi.

“Probably the best "typical" mall in East Africa”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

If U R homesick for the Edmonton Mall (the world's largest) or the Mall of America (#2), then this is an OK place to visit. If you want to visit Africa this is not the place.

“Pretty Decent Place to Shop”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Now, for perspective, we're living in Ethiopia so our perspective may be off for people visiting from other places. But, there's a pretty decent selection of clothing, electronics, sporting goods stores and restaurants. We were particularly excited about the frozen yogurt store. The prices aren't cheap but it was nice to see the large selection.

Also, the Galleria's location in the Karen section of Nairobi keeps you out of downtown Nairobi traffic. That said, there's currently major road construction in the area.
