Best mall in Dubai. Loved the pyaramid egyptian theme. Went to see the light and sound show which was ok. Shopping mall is decent size and not as big as other malls in Dubai so loved it. Nice restaurants and friendly atmosphere . The souk downstairs is a Must. They sell traditional Arabian clothes and food at good prices .

The WAFI mall is one of the original malls erected in Dubai. Say what you want about Dubai Mall being the largest etc., the WAFI is still the best for style and class. Based around an Egyptian theme, you could spend hours just looking at the architecture let alone the unique shops. The Dubai tour buses come through here and... More

One of the beautiful place, mall I've been not just for its unique Pyramid shape but also its design inside and out. Good place to buy souvenir items down in Souk Murjan, great selection!

In any other location the Wafi Mall would be spectacular. Here in the LAND of MALLS!!! It is just a so-so mall. The Good: There are several information desks.It is usually empty and easy to get around in. It has a Souk. Locals love it- so it is great for local spottings. The light show is cool, but not worth... More

The wafi mall is unique since it has been built on Egyptian architecture and model. You will find small alleys of shops full of perfumes,souvenirs and articles related to Egyptian times. The domes are beautiful and colorful, made up of intricate glass work. It has a small food court. This is one of the lesser crowded malls of Dubai. The... More

Get that real Middle Eastern experience on the lower level, Some very nice shops in a manageable size Mall. It is also the start of one of the Hop on Hop Off buses.

I've been in most of the malls in dubai, however this is one that I hadn't got round to yet. My husband and I went with high expectations but they were soon dashed. We came from the metro and made our way towards raffles hotel. Don't make the mistake we did and walk round the wrong way, instead walk into... More

I like this Mall. It's architectural design (in the form of a pyramid) is more eye catching and interesting than the larger malls but essentially no matter how it's dressed it's still just a shopping centre and i doubt whether i'd have entered at all if it were not for my wife and i hunting down a post dinner ice-cream!...
