This is the 1st mall of its kind in Kano state, the most secured place to make shopping and have some fun. Is not only shopping but there are many recreational areas. You need to pay a visit if you are in Kano.

The first of its kind in a city that had until its opening, survived through centuries with its millennia of ethnically styled retail outlets. Emergence of the mall all believed, would usher in an era that would see Kano transform overall in to a modern...More

Because of the security situation, I feel safe here than going to other outdoor markets in Kano. But there is far too few shops here in this big complex.

Coming from Lagos where the big malls in Nigeria started, the Ado Bayero mall has nothing great in it. Beyond the beautiful architecture which is not common in Northern Nigeria, there isn't much in it. Most stores are vacant. Eating is restricted to 2 stores...More

Unfortunately this is the best of which Kano mall can provide, most of the stores are closed leaving very little store actually open for purchasing stuff. It wouldn't hold up against over mall,and it's quite basic for its architectural design. Overall completely basic.

Ado Bayero Mall is situated in Kano, the popular north city of Nigeria. The location of the mall is not excellent, resulting in many empty spaces and it's not too crowded... For example Adidas Store opened there for on year and closed down...very disappointing!!!
