Went to one of the boutiques there and had a great experience. The recent upgrade points to even better all-round fun coming soon to the mall. I particularly enjoy the weekend market where curios are infinitely available. Try it

It's not really right to give this a bad review as it is undergoing a major refurbishment and going by the plans should really be a nice Mall, at the weekend they have a really nice family oriented market always worth a visit
