Gateway Shopping Centre is a permanent construction zone!!! There is construction everywhere; inside, outside, on top, and under - really annoying, especially with the banging noise from construction operations.

We took my nephews to the play area at the wavehouse, lovely venue and big slides. Kept them entertained for at least 2 hours. The assistants where really helpful and sand art was an additional minimal amount.

This place offers a wide range of things to do. Can shop for clothing, exercise equipment and get dinner. I experienced good service and had a wide range for dessert. Good shopping centre.

Ts the biggest shopping centre in Durban. Many shops and very convenient. Variety of shops that you would not just find them in common malls. It's situated in a very lovely place

Pop corn is always saggy and old, chairs broken, wet and dirty. The movie times are all wrong. So you waste an enourmous amount of time. Avoid this crappy place

Great mall with generous selection of shops, restaurants and service providers. Possibly best to review the website for best entrance at which to park if you have a specific purpose in mind and aren't a walker!
