On reaching the lift to go up to the tower, the two girls outside the lift insisted that we had to eat at the restaurant. We agreed. However the restaurant was so understaffed and our tour guide only allowed us a 45 minute stop. The view of Abu dhabi from the top was excellent! We settled for pizza at a ground level restaurant. Entrance to the mall is pretty average but there seems to be a good selection of stores.

I dont know what the fuss is all about. Its just like another shopping mall. Lots of shops and showrooms (as per definition of malls).
The good part is the sky tower from where the whole coast line of Abu Dhabi is clearly visible. A coffee at cafeteria in the sky tower is totally worth it. Go there if you must and combine it with heritage village.

This is perhaps the only mall worth visiting in Abu Dhabi. Which is disappointing because this mall itself is nothing great. It has lots of shops and food choices. But lacks in terms of entertainment, decorations and architecture when compared to malls in Dubai.

One good thing is its location. It is located at the end of the corniche and right next to the sea. So one can enjoy a good scenic walk before or after shopping. Or you can drop by the Emirates Palace Hotel which is also very close by.

Well, not quite sure what we were expecting but this was just a little blah. Everything was slightly more expensive than UK and EU prices and though the place was nice enough, the shop selection was rather average. The visit was saved by the massive Carrefour in the basement - we managed to get some very good local spices and coffee at good prices.

The mall is right next to the sea and offers a good view of the ocean. You can walk to the beach as well. All the good brands like H&M etc. are there. The Home Center next to the mall is a great place for shopping - excellent value for money
