  • This mall is super big so their is lots to do, but on the other hand their is so many people on a regular day that it is hard to walk/get around. 
  • This is a must see place for those people that enjoy shopping, they have some excellent bargains and some of the shops have generous sales including the big designers, just check the exchange rate ! t...  more »

  • Your legit typical popular mall that would most likely be used in movies. Although, the traffic there can be pretty taxing, especially when it's during rush hour (seriously, it's hella awful when you're caught in that situation), it's kind of worth it in a way. Again, when you reach the mall's underground parking, finding a spot can be a bit of a problem. On the other hand, the lively atmosphere inside of the mall is nice to have when hanging out with friends! Metrotown has all of the hottest shops too. It can be pretty crowded there though, so be careful! When at the food court, it can be tricky finding a seat. Bathrooms are alright, and service is just as a'okay too. A trendy mall in general, despite the crowded parts!
  • Great mall. It is a great destination for shopping, eating, and whiling away your time. I mean literally the place is huge and you will need enough time to explore it thoroughly. I found it extremely easy to commute here as well, because of the convenient sky train station right beside the mall, as well as the bus stand near below the mall. It has great brands with awesome products and services to offer. One must definitely make a visit here to check this place out.
  • Exactly what you would expect from a super-sized mall. All the big brands are here, and it brought a lot of great restaurants inside and all around its perimeter. Parking can get rough around the holidays, but it's attached to a transit station. The cineplex attached is great convenience too. All of your entertainment in one place.
  • Clothes and Food I swear to god that's the only thing you'll find here. A metric ton of clothing stores, a couple accessories places, some clothing stores, some authorized phone dealers, some clothing stores, a decent movie theater, sober clothing stores, and a respectable food court. Did I mention the frigging clothing stores? A little more variety would be great. Additionally a play place for children, at least ONE in the whole bloody complex would certainly cool. I can't go to this mall with my 3yo anymore because there's absolutely nothing for her to do there, and nothing to look forward too for her. At this stage, Brentwood hilariously has more to offer, and as of this writing, it's a shell of its former self
  • Yes, they have pretty much everything... BUT: - parking is horrible. - staff is pretty consistently ruder than other malls - the most reports of violent/rude/disgusting/threatening/idiotic behaviours at Skytrain by my non-driving/everyday transit commuter associations - usually ranked way worse than surrey stations or main-street. - it is almost always insanely crowded. Have had several friends near a panic attack from poor crowd behaviour when we had to brave it for that one specialty item they simply couldn't find anywhere else.
