  • This is an excellent place and beautifully built. I like the variety of foods available in the food court. You will have to monitor our children after 5 pm because we found out after 5 the children have to be with their parents if they are under the age of 18, not that I would allow my children to roam around unsupervised in the first place.

Adjacent to public transport and some great shopping opportunities as well as a great variety range of reasonably- priced dining opportunities.
