“A pleasant shopping experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

While not as big as some of the other malls in Abu Dhabi, this mall is more cosy and less sprawled out making it easier to shop, unless of course you need to visit all the major brands. For that just visit Marina Mall. The mall caters to all income groups as you can find the big brands as well as small stores here. I was especially pleased to see Daiso Japan since I really wanted to buy some inexpensive stuff. especially since I had read about it online. It didn't meet my requirements but was nevertheless worth visiting.

“Ideal for average shopping”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

In this mall there are not the biggest brands concerning clothes, but still you can find very popular ones and some beautiful jewellery shops. There are also 2 nails spa and a lot of restaurants and cafeterias, not only the food court. Furthermore in the basement there is a huge supermarket .As a result, you can surely spend many hours inside Al Wahda without getting bored.

“Your One Stop Shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

Been enjoying this mall for sometime now. the expansion has brought a more options for all types of goers, it has better variety segregation and food choices on every ends per floor. it has kept its partially large size of outlets and the arteries-like section to maximize space and literally ask you go around the area. signage are also place before each entrance so you'd know what stores lay around the corner. Compare to the other malls around these one has more appeal to the whole family.
Very important plus maybe is variety, usually mall this big more than often ends up with shops that offer almost the same thing. Al Wahda have just the right blend. good tip may be is really have time to go around.
Another tip for the management maybe is to have a better Map or store listing for the entire mall. the structure would make it hard for first time goers or those whos just looking for a specific shop. other than that everything is good. thumbs up for the expansion.

“Enormous mall with lots of choice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

This place is huge with lots of different shops that you don't see in the other main malls in Abu Dhabi. There are lots of little coffee shops and eateries, etc which are excellent to provide you with a welcome break from all the shopping.

“Has 2 bookshops & tiney eateries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014 via mobile

Was very glad to find two good book shops.
Again,the size is quite huge, with variety of shops,there are lot of small eateries in all floors apart from standard food court .
For me that is a special mark ,to have these eateries like Waffle shops.
However the mere size & layout can make you tiring if you thought to walk over and figure out what to purchase.
