A small shopping centre, not much to see or do here. If you are looking for places to eat at, topping here will be worth your while, Istanbul restaurant is a decent place to get food that was pretty good 👍

Supermarket and clothes and shoes shops. Free parking and vast rage of restaurants with local and international food variety on the ground floor and top floor. Mobile phones shops. Closer to feira popular and marginal.

There are lots of shops at this mall including a supermarket. In addition, they have restaurants ranging from Turkish to Indian. The Indian restaurant is supposed to be excellent. I ate at the Turkish restaurant and the food was excellent!

Best shopping experience in Maputo. Several floors of diverse shops, restaurants and a supermarket. Fun world for kids at the top floor as well as cinemas on the ground complex

I quite like to stroll around this shopping mall with its jumble of small stores. There are good places to shop for shoes, sportswear, gifts, stationery, home electronics, and a lot more. On every visit there are one or two new stores that have popped up, a fact that contributes to nice dynamics here. Also there are a couple of cheap and decent hairdressers. The noise level in the top floor game arcade is quite maddening though. There are some good restaurants too, lining the outdoors plaza between the mall and the cinema.

A word of warning (as other reviewers already pointed out). While HiperMaputo on the ground floor is an exceptionally well-stocked supermarket where I'd do more shopping if they only accepted credit cards, the cashiers manning the checkout have an organized scam going. They systematically do not give correct change back. After losing 50 mets on one occasion, I subsequently always check the receipt and change received. When confronting them, they immediately hand over the missing money without a word or an excuse.

Let's now wait and see how MSC will be coping with the competition from the new mega-malls under construction around Maputo.

An okay shopping center, not a lot of nice clothing shops. Resturants are plenty and all offer a variety of food. A great place to eat, not shop.

We shopped at the Hypermarket here twice and both times they tried to swindle us (only times this happened with change in Maputo). The cashiers knew exactly what they were doing. I just stood there pointing at the receipt with the change laid out. Without a word they corrected it. I was really shocked. I don't know enough Portuguese to say "thief".

The shopping centre itself has many shops and cafes.

Typical shopping mall, situated in a cluttered area. The jewel of the mall is Jimmy killer fish&chips. Delicious food and great service.
