“Disappointing ”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Having visited some of the Malls in Dubai a couple of years ago, Abu Dhabi Mall proved disappointing in comparison.

While the Food Hall had a wide range of cuisine on offer, and there were other amenities such as cinemas the range of shops was poor. There were a lot of jewellery shops and clothing retailers, but there was the lack of some really big name stores. Also, a number of shops were being refurbished which did give a slightly empty feel in places.

We are sure there are probably better Malls to visit in Abu Dhabi.

“Central and convenient.”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

The mall is a 5 min walk from Le Meridien which was great for us. Very easy to navigate, which makes a pleasant change. Lots of space and a very varied and good value food court on the top floor. Useful for everyday holiday buys and food at a quarter of hotel prices. Will revisit.

“So many shops and restaurants in one place”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

I had a list of items to buy and a friend to take to lunch. It was perfect to be able to get it all done under one roof.

“Lower prices than airport duty free!!!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Abu Dhabi Mall is a mall. It has shops, a food court, a cinema, and underground parking. Just like almost any other mall in the world. But ... the prices are a little lower than Airport Duty Free.

For this reason, and this reason alone, I have rated it excellent. Otherwise, it is an average mall.

Reviewed September 6, 2013

Good place to go for all sort of needs. Not one of those so confusing malls in UAE, you can at least understand where u r heading n how to head back.
