A very modern, stylish Mall with many stores. There is also The Hyatt Hotel which houses great steakhouse called The Grillhouse. I rented a car here and everything was perfect. Definitely worth checking out when you are in anShopping mode.

Sandton City has become extremely busy after the renovations, the inclusion of the Diamond Walk with its high - end shops and the mix of shopping and restaurants. Mandela square remains a focal point and the restaurants on the square are all pretty good with most having good views across the square. Pretty much something for everyone at Sandton City.

A very big, a very fancy mall with literally everything you need. The place is really big, best advice if you are shopping here, have an agenda of exactly what you need lest you will end up lost and confused. but they have it all

Well I've watched Sandton City develop and grow over time, it has become a bit too big for me. I used to come here often when I worked in Sandton central and today I only came since I was in the area for business purposes and I actually managed to shop for few items from my old favorite stores.

I hadn't started with the intention to shop but everything is here, from high end stores (I can dream) to little cafes, a large supermarket, a banking area & many ways to reach Nelson Mandela Square. Given the appalling weather during our few days in the area, it was a bonus there was somewhere to wander!

This is my favorite mall in Johannesburg. It has all chain stores, makeup, clothing, groceries, restaurants, movies and more. This is my all rounder day out. When I need to shop, Sandton City is the place I go to. It is attached to the Nelson Mandela square and has load of shopping and dining choices.

If you looking for a big mall with loads of upmarket retail shops this is the place to go. You will find great retailers and very nice restaurants. The mall does not feel cramped with nice big hallways and great vibe.
