The renovation seems endless, because of which more than half the mall is shut. The chinese outlet in the food court served fare, which was just not eatable !

Wonderful Mall, all new and lovely. Lots of places to sit and relax. Enjoyed familiar foods in IKEA and did lots of inexpensive shopping for the home. Very impressed with the taxi services and the centre valet. Looking forward to returning again.

This is yet another mall in Dubai that is pretty big. The mall was quite empty when we visited in the afternoon hours. Signage is very poor in this mall (and in Dubai in general). It took us a long time to find the food court. Shopping outlets are similar to any other mall in Dubai.

You never tire visiting this place.... other than an enjoyable evening of shopping, eating out, great bargains etc. It's too vast a place to complete visiting it in a day. Ample indoor and outdoor parking available too. It's a must visit to anyone visiting Dubai.

This is a good shopping Mall with lots of stalls in the middle of the shops, I didn't think it had a great variety compared to Dubai Mall but was handy to where I was staying, very clean and spacious

This mall was more like most American ones. It was quite large but did not have the upscale shops as we found at the Dubai Mall. I needed a new pair of sunglasses and went to into several optical shops- they wanted $100 plus. Luckily there was a Marks and Spencer and I got a pair for under $15. Plus... More
