This is a nice mall right across the street from the Hayat Mall. This mall has a typical spread of stores, and a spectrum of brand value. The food court is very large, but whenever we have visited, it has been busy and usually uncomfortably warm. One of the stores not seen in other malls is the Pottery Barn and... More

Yes, this is a typical traditional mall. Yes, it has many of the same stores as other malls, BUT for Americans in particular, this store has a large Pottery Barn and Pottery Barn Kids. It's a great place to pick up the few holiday-type items and just get a feeling of being home. I haven't shopped in PB for years... More

Yet another of the many Malls here in Riyadh. Of course one has to go see. Plenty of shops, eating places and activities for the kids. Often I see kids on Rollerblades happily shopping with mum.

This is one of the convenient malls to visit with family. One can visit the Hyatt mall next to its basically you can spend the whole day ago these two malls. Continuous bargains and sales throughout the year. Ample parking. Of course there are big crowds. But all the branded shops are available between these two. In most instances the... More

It's old in concept and distribution. A long hall with stores, that's it. On the other side, is lively and well stocked, whatever you need, both in terms of clothing and apparel, is there. It's also very close to the Hyatt mall (just across the street), so you can continue your search there.

It's exactly the standard Saudi Arabian mall experience: Two storeys span a massive area with special "Family Only" dining areas. It doesn't have Jarir Bookstore like its neighbour Hyatt Mall does, but it has Tamimi Supermarket which I prefer because it has products that other supermarkets don't. Parking areas are tight and snug, with sharp neck-breaking turns and centimetre-to-centimetre parking... More
