    Now the largest mall in Abu Dhabi, it has the full range of stores, not just the ultra expensive ones. They do have a large Waitrose, Next, Mothercare, Debenhams, Borders, Under Armour, Nike, Zara, M&S as well as all the standard international stores. Airy, wide walkways and pleasant to roam about before getting a little busier around lunchtime. A Starbucks on all 3 levels. LC Waikiki store proved to be my best find, with very reasonable prices for stylish and colourful clothes. If you like shopping allow around 4-5 hours - if you're a shopaholic, allow all day and recognise you may still have to go back!

    Great Mall once you find you way around - like all malls in the UAE but always worth a visit after a business meeting in Mariyah Island

    Marina Mall is the only shopping mall conveniently located at the heart of Dubai Marina with close accessibility to Dubai Marina tram station and DMCC metro station. It serves the nearby neighborhood of JLT, Dubai Marina, JBR, and Bluewaters Island. Compared to other shopping malls in Dubai, Marina Mall is a medium size mall yet offering a variety of stores, restaurants, and entertainments. You can find a great deal of international brand names and local boutiques, There's a few. restaurants and a food court on the top floor offering a variety of fast food options like McDonald's, KFC, Pizza Hut, and Hardee's. For those movie goers, there is a movie theater of the top flood.

    By Abu Dhabi standards this is a good shopping center where many locals go, as prices are not as high as in the glitzy malls of 'the future'. Several times I went to the Coop supermarket on the ground floor to buy cheese and chocolate! But there is a vast array of shops selling almost anything you might need; from clothes and household goods to souvenirs, electronics and jewelry. There also is a food court.

    From the outside the building looks more like a temple or a castle. Good that they have a sign in Latin script as well, informing you it is indeed a shopping center. Excellent location between the central bus station and the Corniche. Lots of parking space for cars. Well linked by public transport (bus stops in front).

    We stayed next to thhe mall so we visited often. Quiet and orderly with a fair number of shops, a more than adequaie food hall and Lulu, an amazing hypermarket. For the young ones there are slides from the top down. Easy to get around and well worth a visit.

    We visited meat and co for an early dinner, as alway we got down early for a walk around the souk, we love to walk around the outside area by the water.

    Sadly there is now construction going on on the other side and it will mostly block the amazing view of the Grand Mosque.

    The souk is still a great place with a boat ride around the water ways available again.

Nice surprise to find next to my home, in Shams Mall, food court..next to Subway and Popeyes ; Super Poke🥳. John... my helper in deciding the right bowl...and wow...very fresh veggies (no rice for me), lots os sashimi...guacamole and finishing in a blink of an eye. Price just right, 40 AED for a small which is quite big. Well done guys!!

    Nice quiet place, away from the main centre. There were few cafes n cute shops earlier, but sadly, (could be due to the covid situation) they have all closed now. There's a Boomah cafe, where we can go n see a good variety of owls n for a fee get upclose to them.
