It has best hotels and resturants. It is situated in the best area in terms of accessability. Affordable public transport and closer to the airport and sibanye casino.

Convenient location, choice of seating with exterior view or warm n cosy inside seats. Delicious pizzas, didn't enjoy the calamari starters. Service prompt and great but over priced meals.

When you are thinking what to do with your kids this is a really good option. We went bowling, played pool at very reasonable prices. Even the parking is plentiful and inexpensive. The mall is huge by any standard.

Gateway theatre of shopping is the largest mall in Africa. Loads of shopping with a huge variety. Everything under one roof ..... good food & coffee shops . Entertainment varies from movie theaters to kids fun world including bowling and mini golf courses.

Gateway feels in need of a revamp. The mall is very crowded, stuffy and dark. Although all the big chains are represented it's not the best shopping experience.

Gateway is AMAZING. If you are shopping for a specific item, and you cannot find it in the many shops at Gateway...then stop hunting for it...it does not exist, because Gateway has EVERYTHING and more. Enjoy!

Major refurbishment going on which disrupts the experience. Many cafes closed and you could see a reduction of people visiting due to this fact. La Lucia mall a better option. Don't go for food.

A huge mall. Lots of well known and lesser known names. Shops tend to be clustered by type, (Sportswear, kids etc.) which is helpful. Takes hours to get round and lots of lovely stuff. Well worth a visit. A bit short on toilets so make...More
