Been here a few times and love it all the time. There's restaurants and loads to do. It's clean and the service is good. Do get an MVG card, it's convenient and I hear you can get all sorts of deals with it.

The Grant West is a very big place, but to be honest I really did expect a lot more from what it looked like on the outside. It is very outdate and needs to be upgraded. I would also say they should get a ocean basket and to update the food court, everything looks so outdated and the kids area... More

Great family venue, loads of entertainment! The photo booth is so cool!! We tried to snatch a group photo in the lobby area at the big Christmas tree but was stopped by the security. In hindsight, the very alert security is so reassuring especially during the festive season. GW has been around for years, but it never gets old! Always... More
