“Something for everyone”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Hemingways is the one-stop shopping mall in East London. You will find most things there - and a few major stores, such as Mr Price SPorts, are only at Hemingways in East London. For me, though, I generally try to dash in and out as quickly as possible - and avoid it on busy Saturday mornings. Be prepared to walk..
There are some nice entertainment options, including Electric Avenue bowling alley - which my 8 & 6 yo love.

“Granddad Was Impressed”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

I call him "Granddad" but actually he is an old hiking buddy. Took him to the Mall for his first visit and together with some other hiking friends went for tea at Woolworths Restaurant. The food was great but the service was poor and the noise level was too high for a comfortable conversation.
Afterwards it was decided to explore the Mall. He was very impressed by the extensive range of shops, restaurants and cinemas so for sure he will be back there again.
In essence it is no different from other malls but it is very big for East London standards.
And it does have the added advantages of having a casino and hotel inside the complex.

“It's okay”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Not bad, ample parking, parking fee affordable. Shop prices are somewhat higher than in counterparts not situated in the mall. Clean facilities and wide variety in eat out places.
