  • Village Market is one of the best locations in Nairobi. The ambience is great, there are many shopping and dining options here. Also on the only bowling alley in Kenya is found at the village market. Make a point of visiting and you will have the best time. Also good to bring your kids, they will have fun
  • Village Market is just nice easy place to be where there's not too much rush. There strategies of marketing the mall is awesome. Having Cooking classes for both adults and kids, the Salsa nights, and so on. Their yearly Halloween party has not been matched to date. Probably the only mall with games for adults, namely Bowling. I think they should have considered bringing back the waterslides.
  • The remodeling and addition to the original mall have totally changed it into a most modern mall... The choice is restaurants is amazing...
  • Beautiful mall. Well laid out, some many different spaces that all exude class and exclusivity..no crowds here. Easy access to this complex via private or public means.
  • I highly recommend the village market especially for the food. I love the new renovated side it has many options for different cuisine from Lebanese to Japanese to Chinese to Mexican...they have good fast food restaurants to fine dining as well at the harvest.
