So this is the definition of a Ghost Mall. Hardly anyone ever walks around here, and it's really too big for it's audience today. Being one of the first malls of it's sort in Dubai, it used to be a hotspot. With some impressive architecture, Ancient egyptian statues and theme shows, an underground Souq and plenty of restaurants, this mall... More

Not as big as some of the newer malls but looks classy with its Egyptian theme, architecture and stained glass pyramid roof. Shopping is very good, easy layout to walk around and some very good stores such as Balmain, Jaeger and the old high street favourite for us Brits, M& S. some interesting Arab perfumeries and the smell of oud...

Don\t go to this mall. It is quite dead. When we visited there were no customers, many of the shops were closed. The Christmas music could be heard echoing since there was nobody there. It is a very depressing shopping mall. The food court is not good, and the basement souks, are not good either. I would avoid it, unless... More

An Egyptian theme based mall. Major attraction is the light and sound (free) show. Show timings- everyday, 6:30 pm, 7:30 pm, 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm. Show duration is 10 min. The show theme changes based on the time and festival during the year. Inside the mall, you can shop at peace. The regular hustle and bustle observed in other... More

In my opinion, this is the mall to visit. Unlike the Mall of Emirates and Dubai Mall, Shopping is a pleasure as it can be done peacefully, without the huge numbers of shoppers pushing and shoving. There is no shortage of choice however the atmosphere is tranquil. One restaurant to visit is The Square - excellent food and great service.

The Wafi is done in an Eqyptian theme. Huge mosaic ceiling panels in the shape of the pyramids. The Gourmet Store was just delicious. I bought 1 of each of all the candies. The have some great specialty foods. The mall is somewhat dated, but it's a must see activity. Check out the Souks in the basement.

An excellent theme based mall. The theme here is Egyptian culture. Haven't been to Egypt earlier. However felt like one. Good ambiance and one cannot guess the amount of shopping space available under the Pyramid shaped building. 2 floors down the road level full of shops on Egyptian style and you will forget you were below until you return to...

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
