Small mall with limited parking, but I was able to find what I needed quickly after discovering my power adapter was broken. They had two electronics stores that were both helpful and their prices were competitive with what you would pay in the US. They had a variety of apparel stores to take care of any needs you might have.... More

This is a good mall with great diversity for shoppers. Most major international brands of consumer items can be found here. There are several banks and a forex bureau. Eateries include various fast foods, pizzerias, Chinese, Italian and continental choices. For cold beers I would recommend mercury lounge or a two minute walk to the nearby Brew Bistro.

Very nicely designed mall with an international feel given the rich mix of local and international brands that call the mall home. With a reasonably good variety of restaurants, shopping outlets, banks, well stocked bookshop, movie theaters, ample parking and pretty good atmosphere, The Junction is ideal for family and business.

Visiting the Junction Mall in Nairobi was just like being in a mall back home in the States. Lots of stores to visit. Could use a few more choices of eating places though. Nice and clean.

The art and architectural designs at the Junction are awesome. Visited here with youth from Nairobi Chapel for a movie and I enjoyed the experience. Their theatres are lovely and cool. There restaurants too. Though quite expensive. And the traffic from town is too much..

This mall was close by to where I was staying so I visited this a couple of times during my business trip. It has all the basic shops you need ie. Nakumatt, Mr Price, Woolworths as well as a handful of nice upmarket souvenir shops. Be sure to visit Kazuri, the bead shop which sells lovely jewellery pieces at very... More

It's an ok mall you can go for shopping at supermarket or many shops, go for a movie, grab a bite at KFC or subway or the many other places depending on your preferences.

Great experience ie sufficient good brand stores eg Woolworths, Mr Price, a BabyShop and a proper food court, large Nakumatt. Very crowded though and the usual security checks at entrance. Great for picking up important things on the go. The Maasai market is available on the third floor on Thursdays, look it up for great African stuff and bargain hard!

Because I stayed close by, I made a number of visits to the mall for various reasons from hanging out with a friend at ArtCaffè, change money, buy groceries. I liked attending the Masai Market which takes place on Thursdays - quite a vibrant atmosphere with lots of good souvenirs.

Thank Qutedoc
