I had visited this place in 2010 whilst in Dubai. I was amazed to see the architecture and the layout of this unique mall. This mall is bifurcated in different sections where each section signifies a different country. When I visited the Indian section I could see all was so well designed depicting Indian culture. Located at Shk Zayed road... More

It just a ordinary mall with different exterior designed but inside was definitely spectacular architectural interiors. It is located nearly Jabal Ali. If i'm not mistaken designs are probably features China Court, Egypt Court, Indian Court, Persian Court and so on. Just only one level. It is very accessible by public transport thru metro train, taxi or even public bus.... More

Nice mall with much lesser traffic than the Dubai Mall and Mall of Emirates. Can take the red line on metro and alight at IBN Battuta. Nice atmosphere as well with the different country theme architecture.

This was the first mall we visited in Dubai & think it was probably the best for atmosphere. It is divided into different countries that were visited by Ibn Battuta on his travels. The ceiling of the Starbucks in the Persia area was worth the visit alone - it is amazing. Not as many of the large shops that are... More

The best thing about Ibn Battuta Mall is the excellent architecture. There are 5 (or so) sections featuring different countries in the design with some good sculptures. Nearly all on one floor. But they have a train for the disabled and lazy. Without this the mall will look like any other mall in the world. Go to Dubai malls for... More

This is by far my favourite Mall in Dubai, we stay at the Palm Tree Court hotel in Jebel Ali so this is the nearest Mall to us but there are so many other reasons why we like it. The supermarket is massive and sells absolutely everything, there are an excellent selection of shops ranging from the moderate to exclusive... More

...but would not have visited if we had not been staying across the road. That said there is an interesting variety and if you walk through the whole mall you really do get a free history lesson en route if you take the trouble to look at and read the displays. Dining options appear to get crowded and noisy especially... More

Have been to this mall but would not like to visit again. Though mall is good, there are two main drawbacks. Firstly it is too far and secondly it is spread out over a very big area. It is worth a visit only if you are looking for anything specific which is available here only or you want to kill... More

I was there for several tomes. Giant is good super market in there. You can find all world foods. It's not cheap but ok. All other shopping places are expensive from my opinion.
