A reasonable sized mall in the center of Westlands, in Nairobi. Ample parking inside and outside. Variety of stores and eating places. Top floor has a cinema also that screens Bollywood movies.

Heavily guarded mall with security presence, I felt scared moving amongst the armed security. Reminds me of the war zone countries in Cental Africa. There is not much to see except a quaint cinema on the very top floor.

The Westgate shopping mall has had a disastrous history, but now it is clean, modern and very usable. The arts and crafts stalls must be investigated as there are many bargains to be had - barter a little. Lunch, snack or coffee, and ample parking...More

Though security is thorough and most reasuring, both on cars and in person, sadly the memory of the 2013 attack lingers in the number of vacant shops and a rather Marie Celeste feel. Nakumatt (supermarket) is no longer there to pull people in. The shops...More

Nice and clean mall. Mall has a forex for your currency needs, and Artcaffe here is very nice. Great food and drink options including local beers. Their Chia firecracker smoothie was a hit with us. Mall has plenty of paid parking outside.

I just went to Westgate for the first time in years. I have to say that it's a good mall. It will improve further once a new supermarket moves into Nakumatt.

This a nice, if small size, mall (by western standards). I certainly felt safe with the security screening and guards. Unfortunately there are many vacant storefronts and the grocery store had way too many empty shelves (it was unsettling).
