“How the far west was won by far east”
Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

Chinese are marvelous race in the planet's history. Not for their conquests but for their connects. Their friendliness seems to be pretty strong just outside their neighbors back doors. This mart gives a feel of Chinese tenacity to penetrate into every aspect of human life.

“If you're looking for a bargain, you'll find it here....eventually”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

The place is a maze (2 words) and though its supposed to be divided into different sections I defy anyone to go there and find exactly what they want without either getting lost or forgetting where your car was parked. Run by Chinese, so theres bargains to be had but you've got to haggle.

“A Taste of China in the heart of the Gulf..:)”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Gear up, fold up your sleeves, put pn your walking shoes and get ready to bargain your way into a million 'made in china' items.
Right from Building materials to finishes and upholstery furniture fabrics clothin shoes toys foodstuf light fittings and accessories... well the list could just go on, It is a one stop market for well almost everything under the sun...
Your bargaining skills come in handy as the rates are over hiked at most times.
We can even see Locals from the neibouring country of Oman come by to by in bulk and take back to retail.

Great fun to go shopping here. Loads of stuff (all from China). Could easily spend a day here to escape the heat! All the better if you organise shipping home!

“dragon mart”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

We go to dragon mart everytime we visit Dubai and always find good stuff and amazine bargains... this time I felt that the trend was shifting more to retail and thus the prices were not that great... still if you look around keenly you will def have a satisfying shopping experience here
