Shopping mall.

A good place for shopping. You can find all kinds of stores for women, men and children. There is also a supermarket. And there is a cinema theatre and an amusement center.

Coming from Europe/USA this is basically of no interest! All Brand/US. Shops - no local products! Better to find a more authentic souk!

Six days a week, it's just a mall. If you want some nice indoor/outdoor mall shopping, it's your place. Plus it has restaurants, coffee shops, and a movie theatre. But best time to go is Saturday morning (and into early afternoon) for the Souk El Tayeb farmers market, set up near the Cinema City movie theaters. Great place to buy... More

Want to do Shoping, watch a movie, have the kids to play in open air or enjoy games center while having a bite at the MET and one of my favorite desserts bread pudding. Huge variety of shops and Resturant's and coffee shops will not allow you to be bored.

Nice place midtown to spend the day whether you want to shop, eat or just chill! I also like the Cinema there for the wide choice and the big play area for kids ..

Just have a walk and enjoy the time looking around the luxurious shops, high brands and entertainment. Choose one of the Cafe, bars, or restaurants and pamper your senses... it is one of the nicest area in the world where you can see the Eastern and the Western cultures merged in one place.

We used to come here often.this time it was sad to see that our preferred three restaurants were all shut down...with ugly dusk on their glass...really sad to see this district as a gost city.maybe because of the parliament and security .anyway it was not a good experience.
