Seems to be the latest mall in town with a hotel above it. Good food court, many branded shops, food outlets, upmarket coffee shops, plus a supermarket on the lower Ground floor. Very centrally located.

A nice mall near the waterfront and India street with a great food court upstairs. Lots of other stores as well, worth stopping by for the food or air conditioning.
