Great place for a fun experience within the rich Kenyan culture. The prices might seem high, but you are basically supporting the country's heritage. It was great fun talking to the stall owners - each have their unique style!

We spent few hours with kids. Did some shopping, took some photos and had good food. It’s a shopping center with a different setup. Looked pleasant with trees and plants all over. Never looked like a mall. Lot of options for the food.

Ramps available from the entrance into the main part of the food court for wheelchair access and to the best of my memory there's also a ramp to the upper floors very close to the stairs, hope this helps.
