  • Everything the heart desires. A good offer mix of local over international products. A game - and fun activities for children, and many different food offers. This one is not boring.

  • A reasonable sized mall in the center of Westlands, in Nairobi. Ample parking inside and outside. Variety of stores and eating places. Top floor has a cinema also that screens Bollywood movies.  more »
  • Heavily guarded mall with security presence, I felt scared moving amongst the armed security. Reminds me of the war zone countries in Cental Africa. There is not much to see except a quaint cinema on ...  more »

  • This is still one of the finest shopping experiences in Nairobi. Not too late and not too small, just enough. A new anchor tenant is expected to setup shop pretty soon which should really increase activity therein. Art Cafe and Urban Burger are real crowd pullers offering excellent ambience to relax with friends more so on Friday evenings. Parking is also in plenty and security is top notch.
  • Lively place, you get to find items you may not find elsewhere though expensive. And wonderful places to relax, drink coffee, eat both be and non veg. Great.
  • I love the planet media cinemas at Westgate mall. The seats are great and the caramel popcorn is amazing too. It's sad that the text book center was closed down. There's a massive array of stores for everything. They're a bit on the higher side of the price range but you can always find a good bargain too. The mall is very handicap friendly and wheelchair accessible.
  • This is my favourite mall because it's so close to home. I often go for movies though not the best quality, it's quite affordable. Lack of supermarkets sucks but has a general great ambiance.
  • Awesome place. Especially loved the bookshop. But since Nakumatt left it needs to get a supermarket to replace it
