“Compact Mall .... love the sales ..hate the parking”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Super compact mall (compared to the ones in Dubai), makes good exercise friday morning come sale season. Centrally located in Seef area with easy access due to the highway. Has all the prominent high street brands and their flagship stores.Minted crowd, sporting Gucci and Prada, please head across to Moda Mall in Financial Harbor.

Notable outlets being Carrefour (French supermarket chain, hate their small bags though), Debenhams and the Inditex gang competing with Gap for global dominion.

The food court is on the 3rd floor, decent variety with more upmarket options (Asha's for indian recommended) on the same floor near the cineplex.

Parking used to be great till 6 months ago the management decided to convert it into a free go garting circuit (well, not actually). They just put in strange dividers and curves with crazy corners to challenge even experienced drivers like me. Previous to that was an easy 2 minute in, 2 minute out routine which has become a 10 minute in and 20 min out of late.

Tips:
If you like crowds go in the evening, if like to shop go in the morning when everything is neatly stacked and you are the solitary checkout.
If you want to avoid the go-garting circuit (parking, sorry), coming in from the Seef Side take the right turn, take a U and park at the underground floor for easy exit up one level.
Remember there are 5 levels of parking for 3 levels of the mall so please remember where you parked (first timers).
If you are with toddlers, fun strollers are available at a nominal fee..

“Have Teenage Kids and they loved it”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

I like so much under one roof. The kids can keep busy, watch movies, eat at excellent selection of food court or restaurants. They met friends at the mall and stayed all day.
