Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We went Sunday to get groceries in the Rosebank Mall, but first decided to stop at the Sunday Market. We got there and had a tasty snack of Greek and Thai foods. Lots of great foods, and great art and clothes. Love the regular mall, too. Lots of great stores!

    One of Joburg's most special spaces. A series of light industrial buildings set amid picturesque courtyards with pretty greenery. The stores here are mostly boutique stores and offer unique goods, from local designer labels to ceramics, furniture and Joburg keepsakes. Breakfast at Salvation cafe is an institution (not open Mondays) and Peachy and The Bioscope Independent Cinema add a nightlife aspect to the experience. Bean There is renowned for its Fair Trade coffee – and is an excellent place to meet, or work quietly.

    Enough of everything -- shops, restaurants, cinemas, banks. This is a convenient and manageable center. It is well structured and easy to navigate. I found the security good, and it certainly is a place that satisfies all choices.

    By far the best shopping centre in Johannesburg - centrally located. Shops easy to find and great restaurants.

    The area has a lovely play area for children. Multiple places to eat. Interesting shops with South African stuff. The area around 27 boxes is also very interesting and seems it would fun and exciting in the evening and night. Much better than a mall.

    As we live in Malawi and mainly visit malls for essential shopping, we enjoy visiting Mall of the South. It has ample parking, all necessary shops and lovely restaurants.

    Get the feel of a factory, they have a restaurant downstairs and a courtyard outside as well as the beautiful space at the top with views of Johannesburg. Good food, nice coffee.

    This is the site where the Freedom Charter was signed so whilst the square is a bit rundown it is an important historical place with great significance for the townships.

    Sizable Mall which is multi leveled. It host a number of shops, ranging from regular commercial shops, boutiques, sports apparel shops, furniture shops. Kids entertainment is gallor, with movie house and variety of entertainment. I just love their lay out of newly renovated restaurants area. Their down side is their car parking machines, which are forever having problems.

    This mall is trying to cater for the entire South African demographic. They have succeeded in this however, it turns out to be the same as just about any other mall making for a rather mediocre experience. Not sure if I would travel all the way there again because sadly it's bland and nothing outstanding. If they really want the likes of me to return it needs a one of a kind restaurant or shop.

    There are quite a number of restaurants and great restaurants at that. The boutiques are lovely to explore and walking around admiring the stores makes for a great romantic predate idea.
