  • It's like any other malls with fair amount of international and local brands. It's nice to be indoors when it's super hot outside or pouring wet. Ample parking space, empty most of the time.
  • well run and manage building. with 24hour security personal, monitor by cctv. the worker are polite and well train during different festive seasons, the building it well decorated. and varies of sales hold all the years rounds.great jobs.
  • Great place for weekend hangouts. Generally not too crowded and is a strategic place as it is located near to the famous Kuching Waterfront and the recently completed Golden Bridge. However, parking could be a struggle sometimes. Some improvements should be implemented though - escalators broken down and stays unfixed for eras, toilet cleanliness etc. Otherwise, nothing to complain.
  • Place to get some emergency cheap clothing and footwear. Some street food stores. Mainly deep fried stuffs.
  • Decent varieties of shop and eateries although it can benefit more by having smaller shop lots. Location of restrooms is rather inconvenient and signages are not obvious. The mall need improvement on maintaining its escalators as a broke down may take weeks in rectifying. Overall is not a bad mall, probably just sub par managed.
