“Come for the Masai market on Thursday - no reason for the mall otherwise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

fun place to shop for handicrafts made by the local Masai population. Every Thursday at Junction mall and Tuesday at Westgate mall. Vendors can be aggressive but are mostly good natured and friendly to talk with. Haggling is a requirement. An entertaining dance show is a part of the market.

“The Junction is Convenient,but Expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I go to the Junction frequently to meet friends. I also do my shopping at Nakumatt becasue it has an incredible assortment of items. I can walk there as it's only 30 minutes from my apartment. It has a Java House where I meet my friends as well as a Dorman's,and Artcafe. I can also change Traveler's Checks for a very good rate at the Forex. It is very safe,and has excellent security. However,I wouldn't consider it a tourist attraction as it is nothing but another shopping center.

“Ok for an hour or two”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Another of Nairobi's shopping Malls. Filled with chain brand shops but on the very expensive side, I dare say Londons Oxford Street is cheaper. Has a Nakumatt grocery store and a reasonable foodcourt plus a KFC if your so inclined. Some speciality shops plus a decent book shop by the main entrance. parking costs 20KSh for an hour.

“Junction Mall, Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Junction is a pleasant place to spend sometime at. It's my favourite of the malls you will find in Nairobi. There is plenty of parking. It always looks busy parking wise, but there is multistory parking as well, which is very safe to use. It has both a Java House & Artcaffe, to spend your time eating & meeting with friends and a nice range of shops. Can get busy trying to access Junction from Nging Road, so try and come in from a different route. I'd recommend coming via James Gichuru Road/Kingara Road.
