  • 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 »

  • Westgate Mall restored nicely and has again a nice variety of shops and recreation. Because of its spatious design it's very light inside and one does not really have the feeling of being inside a building. Supermarket is good and parking space is ample.
  • I'd say its one of the best in Nairobi and has different types of shops.. the only thing i wished it was better is the food court..its still in process but hopefully it'll serve different varieties very soon
  • This is a great mall, the shops are nice. The food court offers lot of options. It has a great movie theater. We always go there to watch movies on Sunday morning as the first show has cheaper tickets.
  • One of the Most beautiful mall In Africa. It has many cafe's and shopping destinations+ Movie thearters. You should consider putting this place in your Bucket list.
  • It's amazing the amount of work that has been put into bringing back the mall to its former glory. It's beautiful.
