This is a small mall, which has kept pace with its bigger brothers. Good shops and restaurants for this part of town. Parking works well.

Situated in the upmarket Kilimani area of Nairobi, the mall is quite accessible and has sufficient parking. It has a good variety of restaurants and many other services on would expect in a mall. My favorite is the bookstore on the second floor which carries a delightful range of books.

We were there in the evening looking for dinner and there was not a lot to choose from which made us go to another place.

its a nice bustling place. You can get different kind of stuff at the well stocked shops. Food, Vegetables, Meats, Groceries, Clothes, Electrical items, Paintings, Hardware. Mr Price, Chandrana supermarkets, Artcaffe, Woolworth and Masai Market are very helpful.

Nice place to look around in. Good draws were the cafe downstairs, the bookshop and health shop upstairs. Decent range of items / products; although overpriced. The bigger draw, however, is the Masai Market which takes place on Sundays.
