We walked through, and weren't inspired to hang around for any shopping. There looked like there were some interesting Indian fashion and some limited Pakistani fashion. We had just returned from Lahore , so weren't looking for this kind of stuff really. Unless you want something specific, I'm not sure it is worth the trip.

We thought we could great bargains here but the product pricing is more or less similar to those in India and Pak.
We do get a better range for the ladies, especially Pakistani Fashions and Lucknowi creations.
Slightly better value than Al-Karama.
It is worth a few minutes of your time.

If you want Indian style clothes and jewellery then this portion of old Dubai is a must visit. Clothes shop aplenty, haggles, ready made or made to measure but unfortunately in recent years its filled with touts trying to sell you fake watches and designer labels. Almost one will pop out every few yards spoiling the shopping experience but its still the place for textiles.

09May14 - Not worth the time - this is a solely Indian market place - went to Meena bazaar to find traditional Arabic Muslim clothing for a friend's young boy - could hardly find anything other than Indian shops. Severely crowded and touted by relentless Indian's on the walkways and streets selling seemingly everything and would walk great distances with us pressuring their sales of everything from watches to rugs to clothing, etc..... endlessly pursuing us down the street. Trains were so packed when transiting to and from our hotel making the shopping trip practically unbearable. People were not friendly to help with directions and train coordination - rather - we seemingly were penalized with extortionate fees for not making the right train selection at the automated ticket machine. This sort of experience makes me wonder why did I come to Dubai if we cannot leisurely get aboard public transportation to get around town and shop for Arabic genera and visit tourist hot-spots without ending up in little India such as Meena Bazaar purported as an Iconic Dubai (?Arabic?) marketplace.(?)
