  • You can see that it was a nice mall. I think that after the bombing of the 2013 already is he defected. Many stores are closed and it is sad. Of truth to this day (October 2017) the only option of nice shopping mall in Nairobi is two rivers mall.

  • 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.
  • Dosnt Doubt have a supermarket but understandable with what happened there a few years ago. It's still a lovely place to hang out
  • I went to urban gourmet and I had a great time! Westgate is a good place with chilled vibes, especially in the evening.
  • Nice shops around. Food court has its variety. Security is tight, understandable. Worth spending a day.
  • Great place for a nights out with friends and the cinema is 10/10. Highly recommend to visit.
