It used to be the best mall in Bahrain but it became the second after opening City Center few years ago. But still busy mall and I recommend the expansion area to visit and enjoy the restaurants and coffee shops around. Avoid the weekends to visit the mall or go early to enjoy it.

This is a good clean mall with plenty of shops to keep you occupied. I waited here in the Starbucks on my long 10-hour layover as I did not get a hotel to stay in. It was comfortable and has a kids friendly place for them to play. For a tourist with a long layover, I was able to get... More

Seef mall is my go to place when i need some calm shopping time. It does not house the variety that City Center has although it has some of the good places. Only downside I would say is the lack of parking sometimes, and the comparatively smaller food court.

I love the way they differentiate their stores and products between Bahrain City Centre and Seef Mall. In this case, aside of the greatness (on Bahrain scale of course) of Bahrain City Centre, I can say Seef Mall quite steals the show... Fave store is always the Sun and Sand stores...lots of cheap apparell and sports goods..the most important thing... More

This mall is kept to high level of cleanliness and the stores are affordable and very good variety of merchandise. Dinner was excellent at the Brazil Grill.

I really thought of it to be a wonderful place in comparison with malls of UAE but it stands nowhere close. The mall is built in a very trendy way but it doesn't house good enough places. the food court is also a limited one and so is the sitting area. The only good thing about this mall is Magic... More

There are a few hidden gems within this mall. Magic Island is a great place for kids and family. They run some great deals from time to time. The mall snakes around a bit so it's a bit unconventional than most. You have Hm, mac cosmetics, two airlines and a bank. Plus many many others. Try it out
