  • Yaya is ok, but it's not a place to shop for vegetarians and people who is much into organic food. The supermarcets are poor in that way. Unless you want to pay way too much in Healthy U.  more »
  • I always go to Yaya, for the Java coffee and mint tea from Art caffe. The mall has a variety of stores for clothing, food, snacks to name a few. It is a great place to catch up with a long time friend...  more »

  • They place is very lively and has an exciting feel to it. I loved the supermarket. I was able to buy food of all types both local and imported which are difficult to get elsewhere. Java and other eateries provide good ambience. Shopping mall is attractive. Welcoming from them entrance. Quite a good place to visit.
  • The mall is the best in Killimani area, you can shop every thing here, the roads that are round the Yaya Center Mall, prove that this is Place to be while shopping. The place is the only one you can enter in Buy everyone Uniforms, international schools uniforms are found here, the best Cameras are also found here. The best food can be beaten here,
  • The mall is great, you can shop for almost evey household items, cloths, hardware, electronic gadgets etc. Plus they have some restaurants and cafeteria including java house pizza hut and more. Nice place to go with family and shop at the same time you can enjoy food.
  • A huge Shopping Mall in Kilimani, Nairobi. Excellent security and when shopping there, one would have no reason to go anywhere else. You will find everything that you need at Yaya Centre
  • From its glorious time as the Mall of Malls, back in the day, Yaya, that oozed class, finesse, charm, and devilish abandon, we now have a shell of a building that has been turned into a maouselim with equally irritable parking space. Please where do we even begin? It's small. Like, I have been to bigger brothels than these! Small, squeezed and smelly. The businesses and brands haggling for customers have to do with low ventilation, heavy traffic, of mostly suppliers and teenagers, a parking space that is damp, squeezed and gloriously confusing. The eateries on the ground floor compete with the tailors and flowers on second, with the spices and soap shops on third floor. Oh, what glorious smell! Are we ignoring the two tall residential towers - abandoned, ghostly, unoccupied next to Yaya with its rich history of political intrigues, workmanship, devious revenge and now stand as a mark of what could have been? Yaya is no longer Yaya. It is like an egg with no salt. And we don't eat eggs to begin with.
