“Far from the traditional outlet concept”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

This outlet is a house for many signature brands. Usually the outlet concept in other countries is different as you can find reasonable prices. However this outlet hosts only the high end brands which products still after discount are expensive. You should also consider if going there that it is far from the city center

“Dubai Outlet Mall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Good if: You are resident in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Al-Ain and have a car. You can pick up good bargains on Sports equipment, sports clothing & office/casual clothing, branded stuff like Pierre Cardin, Guess, Steve Madden. Items are discounted ALL YEAR ROUND, so it is best to visit when there are no sales at the other malls. You should make regular visits, like once in two or three months as the stocks vary.

Not so good if: You dont have a car and have to travel by taxi as your fares you pay may be more than the savings on discounted items you purchase. Also if you are a tourist on a few days stay, you may better spend your time in shopping malls in Dubai city such as Dubai Mall, Mall of the Emirates and Ibn Battuta. Also if you visit around the month of January or June, there are already discounted sales in these malls and you dont really need to visit the outlet mall.

Summary. Timing is the key. For residents with car its worth visiting. For tourists with limited time, Dubai city malls have so much to offer, so its best to spend your time wisely, make the most of your vacation and leave with a positive impression of this wonderful city.

The mall is of good size but most shops were offering unknown cheap quality brands or their worst unsold stock items

The only reason for visiting this mall might be ChuckeCheese for the kids

Located around 20 KM from the city and Defiantly not worth visiting

“A waste of time!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Wow! Both my boyfriend and I would never recommend anyone to go and waste time at the outlet. Dubai has so many great malls so don't waste time and money driving to the outlet! Only ugly clothes and shoes! I could not find ONE thing in the entire mall that was even worth trying on. It's junk!
I usually don't write reviews, but promised myself to do it after visiting the outlet in order help other people so they won't waste their precious vacation time on going to the outlet!
Enjoy Dubai!
