I only had a short hop in Wafi mall, the exterior reminds of the Egyptian pyramids and even had a Moroccan garden. The mall has quality shops, but it seems dated. And as I did go early in the morning, it was really quiet. If you are on a short stay in Dubai, best avoid, and just have a short... More

Surprisingly Wafi Mall is very different to the regular malls you find in Dubai. It is not enormous or not very crowded..but you get the best brands in there. I actually enjoyed this mall better than many others i have visited in Dubai. Go there are feel the difference.

This older mall is not worth visiting. When we visited there was more staff than shoppers. Plus there is nothing out of the ordinary here. If you need to kill and hour have a look at the souk market place

This mall still has some merit to it offering some good brands in clothing and the Marks and Sparks shop is here as well . The dining outlets are still good but unfortunately the big malls have taken a lot a way from malls such as the old Wafi mall.

Don't bother to go to this mall! it is far away and when I went there it was almost empty. Some good brands but rest is average. Even the light and sound show they talk about, was below my expectations.

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
