We had a spare afternoon and this mall was recommended to us by someone to just go have a look at and a wander. The mall was a decent size not too big it was quieter then Dubai mall. The different sections such as Egyptian, Persian, Indian were interesting to see. So if you do have time spare go visit.

In a city with so many great shopping centers so close to each other, Ibn Battuta is a great, themed shopping experience that has plenty of great shops with only a fraction of the crowds found at the larger malls. With two great food courts and a mini history lesson about a famous middle eastern explorer, the Ibn Battuta Mall... More

If you are only planning on visiting a couple of malls in Dubai, i'd keep this one off your list. The most interesting thing in the whole place was the supermarket, which had an amazing array of fresh produce and provided a great insight into the UAE from the stomach out. The mall itself is a sprawling but ultimately disappointing... More

Near Jebel Ali - this is a great Mall - gets busy at the weekends but very quiet other times. There is a supermarket, cinema aand plenty of boutique type shops. Food Court is very good.

We read about this mall and it seemed interesting so one morning we took the underground. It is a long way from most hotels. From Deira it took us 20 minutes to the trainstop and then a walk in the 40 degree heat across a construction zone, roadway and small park to the mall. Sadly the mall is a bit... More

One of nicest mall in Dubai not over big and convenient if stopping at hotel over the road. Good food court. I always try and visit my favourite men's clothing shop Azzaro in the mall customer service is second to none.

Food Mall can be very loud with live entertainment. Don't even think if visiting before 10am as 90% is not yet open. Nice variety. Mediclinic on location 😷 huge gymnasium and lovely architecture. Like most things in Dubai. Go BIG or go home
