Good shopping mall with ample parking. Free parking! Has many clothes shops including all your western ones (marks and Spencer's, next, h&m) has a play area upstairs which will keep the kids busy. Has a number of food places which are either really cheap or really expensive for the food you get. Worth a visit. It's near Citu Centre mall.

Lacking many of the many normal UK and American Stores, most from the west will find the stores boring and overpriced. Few good finds, great place to purchase quality cuban cigars.

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.

The Seef Mall is a shopping Mall ...just perfect in size. Busy throughout the week as the shops operate from 10 am to 10 pm. Shops, restaurants and cinemas at both ends of the mall. A nice hotel suite style is just within one end of the mall. Gets busy over the weekend with lots of visitors coming from Bahrain's... More

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

There are stuffed animals for hire which small children can ride on. Now it is just a few weeks before Bahrain Formula 1 race, and it... 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.
