This place is deceptively larger than you think, lots of shops and restaurants that will keep you entertained for hours, it even has a 21 screen cinema! Very convenient if your staying at the Ibn Battuta Hotel. We would recommend the Indian restaurant, especially on buffet night, amazing value, buffet meal and soft drink for 11 AED each!

A little bit of different worlds in one place.. Less crowded than the other famous malls. Take a metro instead.. Wouldn't mind spending the whole day!!

This isnt a regular mall..Ibn Battuta traveled seven countries...the mall has theme courts representing each of those countries..the impression of each of the countries is beautiful...each court also has a bit of history of the place and on Ibn Battuta's travel..would highly recommend people do spend sometime here...has metro connectivity..to reach the place easily.

This is a really beautiful mall and to me it probably beats even the Dubai mall.. Your experience starts right from outside with very thoughtfully built exterior, giving way to giant atriums themed on different countries.

The way Ibn batuta has been built, the theme and also the decor is fantastic. Its one of its own kind. The mall is also very good for good bargains!! The food court allows you to binge to your hearts content. Very good place
