The Village View Shopping Mall is located along one of Bedfordview's busiest main roads. Situated just a kilometre from the M1 South on-ramp, the centre is a hive of activity. In late 2013, the centre underwent massive renovations. This not only improved its retail and dining offerings, but created a more welcoming shopping environment for visitors. The centre is now a go-to for shoppers looking to find the latest fashion brands, health and beauty products, super stylish home decor and more. Bedfordview foodies also love it here thanks to the variety of restaurant options on site. From tashas, to Pigalle, Rodizio Brazilian Restaurant, Turn n Tender and FireRoom Sushi & Grill, Village View has something to offer everyone.
Shopping on-trend fashion just got a whole lot easier at Village View Shopping Centre. Although the centre features only two fashion boutiques, Zoi and Zui SA, these two stores have more than enough high-quality style offerings to keep fashionistas coming back. Zoi is the urban working man and woman's g-to store for power blazers, fitted jeans and dresses. Stop by here before your next board meeting or business luncheon. Zui SA is a little less serious, stocking women's boutique wear and seasonal must-haves. Their fashion wear is inspired by London Fashion Week and the classic English style seen in top East End boutiques. Check out their online store for some fashion inspiration before heading out to Village View for your next shopping spree.
Village View's dining options are superb. With five major restaurant chains at the centre, you have ample choice when it comes to grabbing a bite to eat. For breakfast, brunch or a light lunch pop into tashas. This cafe style restaurant greets you at the entrance to the centre and as a result is almost always busy, serving up wholesome dishes made from the freshest ingredients. The seating area is breezy and well-suited for long conversations with friends. Try out a slice of their delicious cakes, or indulge in a gourmet sandwich. You can always walk off the extra calories while exploring the rest of the centre.
Fine dining is easily accessible at Village View, too. Take your pick from Pigalle - a Portuguese seafood and grill dedicated to delivering personalised silver service, or Rodizio Brazilian Restaurant. Rodizio is the more lively venue of the two, often featuring live music and dancing as part of their dining experience. However, whichever you choose you are bound to have a great time enjoying first class food.
For a fiery food experience head to Village View's Turn 'n Tender or FireRoom Sushi and Grill. While these eateries offer wholly different cuisines, flame grilling is at the forefront of their cooking techniques. Partnered with excellent service, these restaurants offer diners a fun and interactive eating experience.
Village View's Woolworths food store is a neighbourhood favourite. This wholefoods grocery outlet is a lot quieter than the outlets situated at the nearby Bedford Centre and Eastgate shopping malls.
