One of the city’s more affordable neighbourhoods, nearby Ibn Battuta Mall (within walking distance for most), residents of ‘Disco Gardens’ as it is affectionately known, do daily battle with queues of traffic to get into the community (and the adjacent The Gardens) in rush hour. Fortunately, plans are in place to open up new access to ease pressure on the current infrastructure. The community itself is host to a range of budget eats (we recommend Green Leaves), supermarkets and salons.
