I don't know the reason behind the mall, it was supposed to be similar to the one in Kuwait but it's not up to Ramez level So dissapointed

I wasn't sure why this was showing as a 'thing to do' but thought I would go as I needed a few groceries. Half of the main front of the mall is boarded up which isn't a very good first impression. Inside is very quiet with only a few shops and the majority of stores are vacant. There is a McDonald's and a shop that grinds coffee but apart from that, I couldn't see much else. The main Sultan store is listed as 'bulk buy' but after a wander I didn't see any 'bulk purchases' on offer? The prices are pretty much inline with any other store. The quality however of the vegetables are a lot lower than the likes of LuLu. It is really handy if you live nearby but in a few minutes you could be at lulu Riffa where the quality is better. There is a McDonald's and I think a restaurant but just across the road you have a bigger selection of both fast food restaurants and restaurants. There is ample parking but at busy times leaving that area can be a night mare due to the above mentioned restaurants and garages etc.

It is not my first time to shop at The Sultan Center Hypermarket which has everything you need under one roof with competing prices

I went to this market in the look for some interesting antique flea market place and a found a maze of shop selling local goods for the house, with many shops closed and only a few selling some interesting goods and half were closed as well. Not worthy, go to a souk at least it is more interesting

We thought it's a branch to the Kuwait based Sultan Centre, I'm not sure they are related cause the one in Bahrain is not recommended. There was a person standing outside the cashier row acting like the manager but without manners. On our way in he was trying to either make fun of us sarcastically or trying to talk with us without knowing what subject to choose. On our way out he told us-as we finish paying the cashier- that the shopping cart (trolley) is not allowed outside the mall, like I have to carry my shopping all the way to the car. Inside the shopping are there were nothing that you can't find anywhere else, things were not organised and prices are similar to everywhere else, why did they call the place the price buster and the bulk purchase. I think they'll shut down soon. good luck guys.
