Yaya is ok, but it's not a place to shop for vegetarians and people who is much into organic food. The supermarcets are poor in that way. Unless you want to pay way too much in Healthy U.

Went on Weekend. Not overcrowded, just right. Parking was available. The food joints were filled. Nice place to spend time shopping at chandrana or eating at various outlets as Pizza Hut, Java etc. Masai Market was also available.
