Everything was perfect. The best place in the world. There are wide choices on the menus, and the food is excellent.

“Picture Perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I wanted to come here on a quiet day so i can take pictures without tourists abstructing my shots. Read few TA reviews and found out from the recent review that thursday was quiet.

Went here on Thursday morning just before the shops open. It's so true, it is very quiet just like what i wanted. I was free to take photos of the hallways and ceilings without waiting for people to move. Everything about this place is just beautiful! Sandstone facade, the lake, the Burj Al Arab is just so picture perfect!

The Abra Tours here are very expensive. 75Dhs per person and it lasts about 20 minutes. I personally dont think its worth for that

The shopping is also a bit pricey.

“A delight, even for a non-shopper”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I'm not a champion shopper and I'm not even particularly keen on Dubai as a place to visit, but I still found the Souk Madinah Jumeirah a fine place to visit. I loved its setting, its innovative design, its imitation alleyways and Arabian night courtyards, and the attractive goods for sale. Lunch at a Lebanese restaurant overlooking the lake was a delight. Getting there from my hotel in Old Dubai was easy too, there being a frequent bus along Beach Road.

“The place worth.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Very nice place with bealtiful views, however, the stores are pretty much the same! The prices and the products... But even, if you visit Dubai, go there for the amazing views!
