“Outlet mall, drive a lot, save a little”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

When you arrive at Outlet mall, a sign welcomes you saying: Drive a little, save a lot but I would say: Drive a lot, save a little! The mall is really out of town, on the road to al Ain and you will have to drive through heat (in May), sand, fast and confusing highways to get there. If you miss the turn to get to the mall, indicated by a small sign almost after the turn, it will be impossible to come back, unless you drive another half an hour, so slow dow when you see the big sign first. Is it really worth it? If you are in Dubai for a short visit, don't bother, in my opinion, you will not find a bargain good enough to be worth the trip and the mall has no special attractions. It is on two floors, with two long corridors and shops on both sides. You will find many brands for gents and ladies, clothes, shoes, bags, luggages, furniture (The One) and garden furniture (which I found expensive). There are luxury brands, like Burberry Outlet (expensive) and Etoile but I was not very impressed, it stays very expensive. In the mall there is a food court, that we didn't try and some cafes around like the French Bakery, Tim Hortons on the ground floor and, on the first floor, El Mondo cafe where we stopped and had a delicious limonade. Maybe the best bargain are to be found in the Sport shops like Adidas, Nike, Puma but I didn't look in details. We went back to the car,burning hot in the sun because there is no shade in the car park, a little disappointed and without too many bags!

“Such an economic shopping....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012

There are many reasons those make me visit this place at least once each time I visit Dubai.
Not all the shops there, but some of them offer good quality things with reasonable price.
If you are to buy shoes and jeans, i suggest there.
But don't forget you will need time to search what you want and you should be energetic enough to walk for hours shop-to-shop.
Be careful about perfumes, it is hard to find their originals there.

“Waste of time !!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

Went on a Monday (the so called "half price monday")
In many cases, they just showed higher prices in the label and then offered a substantial discount (personally checked for Levis and Van Heusen). Not sure why someone is not sueing them !!!

Found the Nike shoes to be cheaper and bought a pair.
Chuck E. Cheese (kids play area) offered rides etc at half price and was worth the time spent on driving all the way. Staff there were courteous and helpful.
The food court was OK, (went for KFC, Chinese panda and Baskin Robbins)
Otherwise it was a day wasted !!!!

“Reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2012

The outlet is about 45 min from Shaikh zayed road. The ground floor of the outlet has most of the brands while the first floor has less. Some shops are empty but i think those shops will be filled again. The outlet mall has a food court on the first floor which I use.
I recommend visiting it before making shopping at other malls,

“Far Far Away”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2011

This Emirates outlet Mall is an hour out of town and in the middle of nowhere. The outlet shops are few and far between. There are more empty spaces/ shops than full ones and the selection is very limited and poor. The free outlet bus transport is the option we took and waited the 3 hours for its return as Taxis are the only other transport option and like the shops few and far between and due to the location Expensive. The food selection is the food court and fast and fried and many many empty spaces. The desert photo opportunity - sand sand and more sand with nothing in between- from the balcony of the food court reflects the location.
