This mall has all the shops encompassing various categories of shopping. It’s easy to find your way around the mall. The food court is spacious with a variety of famous chains. The fountain at the entrance is the highlight.

Very comforting location in Deira. One stop browse if you want to see many shops. There is a Carrefour there as well. Would also recommend the French Bakery.
