  • Unique mall. Shaped Ike a pyramid and has Egyptian themed art work inside. A fine place to shop at. You can find wide range of stores and restaurants. Food court is usually not crowded. I would rate the place as below Accessibility- 7/10 Parking- 8/10 Ambiance - 8/10 Uniqueness- 9/10
  • One of those strange Malls that just doesn't seem to function well. What keeps it alive is probably the visa section, the spa and a few good restaurants. Was probably a great mall originally, but competition has drained it of anchor tenants. Except that it is the central place for most visas these days.
