The mall design is not very big but perfectly balanced. Although it lacks interesting shops. Most shops are over priced!!! Like yaqoby stores items are available at 300% the prices of Amazon which is a ripoff. M&S and Next are charging almost double the Recommended retail price (which you can clearly see in the attached tag). Not to mention that... More

This the first mall built in Manama, but there are now so many and as a result none of them are busy. Lovely and clean and all the usual retailers here, but I think what makes it special is the range of restaurants....and the service level is excellent. There may be a lot of competition but this mall can compete.

i would suggest this mall to those out there who never get tired of walking an exploring the Mall (P.S.) of course its nothing compared to the Dubai mall). You have all the high end brands at one go. The best part is that it has two food courts located at two different sections plus other coffee chains as well.... More

As mentioned previously, not as large as others - Dubai for instance. But we don't spend any money in them anyhow since 99% of the same stuff is cheaper at home. But nice to wander for a couple of hours in the cool, a coffee, snack, Baskin-Robbins etc. M&S, Boots, H&M, Next, Monsoon, Adams Kids, Wallis and others. 3BDs taxi... More
