Iím not a huge fan of the other Westfields myself, but for us theyíre the only show in town.
I think the westfields are alright as far as shopping centres go. The main problem with the only one i go to (stratford a 3 or 4 times a year) is it just simply gets too busy. So it's just not a pleasant experience.

Seems pretty similar to the big malls you get in asia except they always seem deserted by comparison.
