Menlyn Launch


If you loved the idea of a piazza with a variety when it comes to food, then look no further than Central Park

Central Park, an open-air piazza that is flanked by restaurants, is a meeting point and a magnificent events area in Menlyn. Inspired by a vibrant Italian piazza, Central Park brings together food, family and friends to have fun. It is a central gathering place for the entire precinct and its visitors, right at the very heart of Menlyn.

Here, an excellent variety of restaurants, fast foods, coffee shops, delis and cafés offers you the choice of enjoying a unique indoor setting or dining under the beautiful African skies. We’re also excited about all the magnificent events we’ll host in this area.

Some of the restaurants that make up Central Park include:

  • Nonna’s
  • Moo Moo
  • Food Chain
  • Royal India
Festive Season


With all the gifts you’ll be shopping for, gift-wrapping will be a necessity. We’ve got you covered!

Wrapping gifts can be an art form if you know how to do it. If you don’t have the time or the desire to do it, it can be a complete nightmare. This is why we have set up stations that will help you get wrapped up before you leave the mall.

The Craft Store (LF109) will offer:

  • A Gift wrapping station
  • A Work stations for creating a special customised gift
  • A Chill section where you can enjoy a cup of coffee and some refreshments

The Luxury Store (G38/39) will offer:

  • Gift wrapping classes
  • A Lounge area to enjoy a glass of sparkling wine, appetizer with canapés
  • Relaxing head and shoulder massages to ease your tension while your gifts get wrapped.

Santa’s Workshop (LF101) at Central Park will Offer:

  • Santa’s Workshop will have daily programs for the kids from 12pm -1pm, including creative workshops and a photo booth with props to take some pics with Santa and daily prize giveaways.
  • While the kids have some fun there will also be a chill section for the parents where they can take 5 minutes to relax and enjoy some refreshments.

Our gift-wrapping stations will run from 9am – 9pm on Mondays to Sundays and 9am – 5pm on Public Holidays.

All money that will be charged for wrapping will be donated to Smile Foundation SA.



If you’re dreading the festive shopping rush, we have tips that will make the process a lot more pleasant, making sure that you get everything you need.

When Menlyn gets packed with Christmas shoppers, some people are known to get a bit overwhelmed. But worry not; crowds shouldn’t put you off, especially when you have a few handy tips to get you through.


    When you have an idea of what it is that you want, shopping becomes easier. Make a list, even if it’s a rough one, before you leave the house. The list will act like a map that will point out which stores are a must-visit on this specific trip.


    Nothing will make shopping harder than being hungry. Fuel up before shopping and if it’s going to be a full day, schedule in a leisurely lunch at one of our many restaurants or fast food joints.

    Once lunch is done, you can walk off some of the calories by doing some more shopping. Win-win!


    African summers are beautiful but the heat means that hydration will keep you going for longer. Stop to buy water as you make your way around our mall and you’ll find the rest to be a breeze.


    A good pair of walking shoes or sneakers is your best plan if you are going to be putting in hours at Menlyn. Comfort is key when long distances are ahead of you. It will be worth it when you get to enjoy all the gifts you’ve bought for you and your loved ones.


Chocolate, especially high quality chocolate like Lindt can make any day a special one. With Lindt having joined the Menlyn family, we are offering a R5000 voucher to this chocolate-y slice of heaven.
