Yaya is a cosy mall in a dynamic part of the city. It has grocery stores, healthy food shops, clothes shops and restaurants of different cousins. It has around 4 shops where you can find African made stuff. I recommend it!

Not an impressive mall. Not much in the way of stores and a small food court. The only highlight that it was Sunday and the Masai market is at this mall that day. That was worth going to

I come here on weekends to shop for indian groceries. There are many coffee shops located in basement and a good food plaza in second floor

Yaya is ok, but it's not a place to shop for vegetarians and people who is much into organic food. The supermarcets are poor in that way. Unless you want to pay way too much in Healthy U.

Went on Weekend. Not overcrowded, just right. Parking was available. The food joints were filled. Nice place to spend time shopping at chandrana or eating at various outlets as Pizza Hut, Java etc. Masai Market was also available.

Yaya is a decent mall. It feels a bit outdated. Shopping at the Chandarana here is always a nightmare for me as it's overcrowded and badly organized. The mall in general feels crowded and hard to get around in. What I really enjoy is the...More
