“see middle class South Africa in all it's glory”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

Its just a shopping center, and not a very attractive one at that - from the outside anyway. BUT, if you want so see the "new South Africa" in terms of a completely mixed middle class then Eastgate is the place to go. Wander around the shops and it is the usual fare of South African brands - but the people make this place buzz - all colours, all shapes and sizes and all nationalities. Saturday after the 25th of the month (pay day) is a great time to see eastern Johannesburg (and beyond) shop and consume and mingle - an awesome sight!!
