went to the mall today as I was staying at the intercontinental hotel and I was amazed that from my stay in festival city last year they have build such an amazing and peaceful mall. if you want to relax and enjoy then avoid dubai mall and go here. This will be the next thing by next 2 years.

This mall has a lot of the brands that anyone is looking for. However it doesn't have the same busy levels of Dubai mall mainly cause it is not linked by a metro. It has a lovely food court and a few restaurants which I have not seen anywhere in Dubai except this mall. I like this mall a lot... More

Renovations are complete and this mall is a big favourite in our family! Many , many food options- seems like more than Dubai Mall though many are the same - PF Chang's, cheesecake factory and eatly are coming too. Hyper Panda /Ikea side not remodeled but convenient and functional. New Mexican "chipotle" style fast casual place is really good. Good... More

Although it is, again, your typical mall, I found there to be lots of great restaurants, especially if you want to try some real Emirati food

It is a nice local mall, but the best part is the view of downtown dubai from afar. It is like seeing New york from far away. It is totally worth it to enjoy the sunset there .
