    Lot of great stores
    It’s smaller than Dubai Mall, but it has its uniqueness. Stores are arranged easy to find, serval boutique stores are interesting. If u want to spend a whole day there, there are fun activities to do as well apart from shopping like ski Dubai!

    Second best mall in dubai
    Mall of emirates is the second best mall in dubai after dubai mall. While it is most famous for ski dubai, there are multiple other things to keep you occupied. We spent 6 to 7 hours in the mall shopping, could hardly cover a small portion. One day is less to cover the mall. Very good for shopping.

    Excellent mall
    This mall is packed full of excellent retail, food and beverage options and also features a large cinema complex and indoor ski slope and other winter based activities, including meet the penguins. It is easily accessible via Sheikh Zayed Road or the metro. A great place to while away a few hours at any time of year.

    Amazing Mall to visit
    This Mall is huge and has so many shops you should find what you are looking for. Even an indoor ski field with chair lift. You could spend an entire day walking around this Mall. Lots of eateries on every level is a bonus.

    Mall that Caters to Everyone
    This is just like it’s counterpart the Dubai Mall , the difference is that it opened first , making it a little on the dated side. But the enormous choices that it offers , caters to every type . From fast food to casual restaurants, from low to high end luxury brands ( Dubai Mall has the edge on this one with its Fashion boulevard) . It has a snow skating amusement park , and even a huge Carrefour supermarket. It even has cinemas as well .

    Very Nice Mall
    This mall is quite grand with plenty of shops and things to do. My wife and I spent 4 hours here window shopping and looking around. The Ski Dubai is interesting enough and worth a quick look. The mall is well appointed and many major brands are here including quite a few good restaurant chains. The prices were pretty decent compared to other malls we've been to in the middle east. We also got a little sidetracked looking at Christmas decorations that were scattered throughout the shops. The mall is located on the red line at the Mall of the Emirates Metro stop. It takes a while to get around the mall but thankfully the signage is decent.

    HUGE mall with over 600 shops
    My 2nd time to this huge mall but the biggest highlight in my opinion is the penguin experience within ski dubai, yes expensive but if you love penguins this is the place to go. Besides that I don't think there's nothing this mall doesn't have under its roof. Direct stop off the metro. Make sure you give yourself hours.

    Nice mall
    A fairly large mall. The central part is impressive, with the dome on the metal skeleton. What makes it really special is the fact that it houses Ski Dubai, a place where you can ski in the heart of the desert. Otherwise, an ordinary mall, with dozens of shops of all kinds, the fast food area, restaurants.

I already bought watches at Rivoli UAE for around 100kAED the last watch I bought was an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean for 21kAED and they gave me 4 vouchers 250AED each but refused to redeem when I proposed buying a watch and pay the difference I should be buying 4 watches to be eligible to. This is not a way to treat a customer especially someone loyal to their brands. I do not recommend anyone to deal with Rivoli they should go find other dealers or buy from outside UAE. I have many watches from other brands in the UAE sucj as Panerai, Rokex, Tudor... they provided a much better service.

I have stopped here many times and use the metro to arrive here. I have stayed in the hotel, in apartments within walking distance and always find shopping and dining experiences. One such visit was during Ramadan and I had flown for a few days to find all the food shops were closed I was starving and when I asked where I could get something even a small bite I was directed to a door with the curtains drawn and inside was a bustling atmosphere and lots of activity like an Italian restaurant lots of music and food swirling around me. Servers were quickly serving people soups and dishes of many distinct aromas. I was quickly seated in the only available seat and ordered a soup that was memorable with fresh bread and butter with spices and a balsamic glaze. I left so full I returned the next day to continue shopping.

Super cool mall! The most people we’ve seen since we got here, probably because it’s indoors and air conditioned! Ate at the food court, saw a movie, browsed the shops. Masks required everywhere unless you’re eating. No food allowed outside restaurants/food court/theater. It was a bit annoying to have to throw my drink away instead of being able to walk around with it, but I understand. It was very annoying not to be able to sit with our kids at the movie. A theater employee went around separating groups of people sitting together. No more than 2 people were allowed to sit together. That seems ridiculous if you’re there together, esp if you’re in the same family. We’ve just moved forward a little more, post-covid, in the part of the US we live in. And I don’t ever recall not being able to sit with my kids once theaters re-opened. I only gave 4 stars due to the bad theater experience. The movie started 30 min late too (technical issues).

The Mall of the Emirates is packed full of excellent shops, from high end to more affordable.

There is also a cinema, dreamscape experience, kids’ arcade, lots of food and bereaved options, a carrefour supermarket and a ski slope!

The mall is smaller than Dubai Mall but still very well stocked with shops and one could easily spend a few hours inside.

The Christmas decorations are also excellent and visits to Santa are available within Ski Dubai during the Christmas period.

There are a lot of shops. At least 250 anchor stores. It’s does feel like the top three floors are aimed at the 1% of the population who doesn’t understand the value of money (my son wants to be one of these). We spent two hours walking around these floors where you were seeing $20,000 watches that were so ugly, event if you could afford you wouldn’t want to wear.

Then we found the lower two floors. Here the stores were realistic and there were food malls with well known western names like Micky D and KFC amongst local specialist cheap food outlets (recommend Chinese Palace on G - huge plateful of rice noodles and meats for about £7).

Great experience but just one word of warning - prices are inflated (or Dubai is just expensive). We walked out having purchased nothing.

The mall is big enough to include a lot of stores, including Carrefour, a large supermarket. The mall is often crowded. It opens at 10am, however the supermarket opens at 9am. The free wifi requires a code that is texted to your mobile, but since my phone number is outside of the UAE, I did not receive the code ( unlike Dubai mall where I did receive the code). The employees in the stores are rude and lazy, for example I asked a salesperson person at Crate & Barrel for a mug in a different color and I was told to go look in the back. At Sunglass Hut, the manager was so rude to me for an after sales inquiry. At Louis Vuitton, I presented my passport 2 days after the purchase of a purse in order to obtain a tax return tag, the salesperson stated there is a 24 hour deadline for that request and she refused to assist me. I went all the way to Dubai mall where my request was handed in less than 2 minutes. I also heard from other tourists that the employees of this mall are lazy and do not assist clients with anything.

Its a huge mall (not the size of Dubai Mall). Top floors are filled with top end brands with highly expensive products. the lower floors are however with some sensible outlets. The food area is good (specially the cheese factory). Main attraction is the Ski slope and snow adventures for the kids (A bit overprices though). Worth a visit ONLY if you or the kids want to go to ski (it was overcrowded but may be due to july heat outside).

Coming from Canada I was surprised at the all-encompassing nature of the mall tenants. Canadian companies like Lululemon and Tim Hortons were here, also British companies like Boots, Debenhams, and Mark's & Spencer's were present. All major fragrances and fashion companies from the world seemed to be there as well. The food court and mall were filled with all major fast food outlets.

The most impressive feature of the mall was an indoor ski hill called ski Dubai. The architectural features of the mall were exemplary.

Forget about a legendary Eastern bazar(souk, market) if you come here.
I have taken some time to buy my Rolex Datejust and finally made it to Dubai in 2020.
Well, if you expected a fair discount, you will have a price increase... there is only one monopolist selling watches. I can probably leave with that.
However, spending $11,500.0 per watch I kinda anticipate an offer of a coffee cup? branded baseball cap? traveler nylon watch case? a something else that could have cost the retailer a max $25?
No!
Yes, it is now an asian market.
This is a third swiss made watch.
I recommend you to reconsider your watch purchase in UAE looking for Germany, Russia, U.S.
