  • Of course I'm used to my house in Dubai or Hong Kong where does my wife and the shopping malls are to new level. However, this center of everything apart from the big names in fashion, but the food is good and the major shopping chains also in equipment there are. Beautiful spacious and kept clean, huge parxheggio. I mean good

  • We came to this mall to go to the Hello Kitty Cafe, which was disappointing. The mall has a lot of high end stores, but not enough stairs, elevators and escalators. The food court is over the average,...  more »
  • I grew up in this mall. I got my first real job at this mall, took Dial-A-Ride here as a kid and watched as it was taken over by the behemoth known as Westfield. Nowadays, just trying to find a spot t...  more »

  • Although crowded during the weekends and around holidays, this mall keeps getting better shops and restaurants. The food court has definitely improved significantly in options within the last decade. The shops have improved as well. It's simple, the better the shops and restaurants are, the happier customers are and the more they shop/eat there. The weaker and less popular shops have been weeded out. During the day on weekdays is the best time to visit and shop in order to avoid the crowds. Lunch time brings the normal wave of employees from the surrounding neighborhood but also brings a wave of students from nearby Arcadia High School just a block or two up the road. Overall, great location and even people watching is fun here. Definitely recommend this mall!
  • This is one of the better malls out there. It helps that it's located in Arcadia adjacent to Santa Anita Race Track which is a nice part of town. There are numerous shops, restaurants, movie theater etc on the premises. While there is ample parking it can be pretty hectic on the weekend or during the holidays. They have an open air mall section that is pretty cool. They also have a Teavana location which is rare since most of these will only be found on the west side or in the OC. If you're coming here you'll easily spend over an hour just looking around. If you want to make it even more fun being some money.
  • This has to be my favorite mall to hit. The mall has all the stores I need for my shopping to get done. Not to mention the food to eat is just great. I love the options and the veriety is off the charts. You have to be here to see that the mall is really kept clean and well managed. Stop by and check it out if you haven't already.
  • Very kid friendly mall. Took the kidos to Dave and Busters with the family and they had a blast. We ate at the food court and the choices were all very nice. There was something for everyone. Lots of lounge/ seating areas - again well thought out for family and kids.
  • Nice mall if you don't mind the crowd. Very good food court. Beware of drivers not obeying any rules. I've seen people driving wrong direction several times.
