“Good place but expensive”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

I visited the place for IKEA but also visited hyper panda supermarket. If you are in bur dubai a taxi will cost you 40 Aed one side trip. But if any one wants to go from mall of emirates,a.taxi will cost around 50 aed. The mall have lots of expensive shops but IKEA and huper panda supermarket makes it place to visit. There is also a food court which contain a lot of food chains. One can also enjoy lovely view of marina from this mall. IKEA is really huge in which one can easily lost. There is also a cinema house. overall it will require at least 4hours to explore the mall.

“My Favorite Shopping Mall in Dubai”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

I live near Dubai Mall and choose to go to Festival City to go shopping. I like that it's not massive and less crowded. It also has an IKEA in the mall and a ACE Hardware across the street. There are many dining options including a Wendy's, a niceTurkish restaurant, Hard Rock Café, Trader Vic's and many more. There are also many restaurants with fresco dining near the marina/creek. It's a great location to eat and then see a movie.

Finding a taxi at this location can be a problem late at night at mall closing time, so you might do better calling a taxi.

“Festival is indeed their middle name”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Awesome cool place and it is a festival city in the middle of nowhere. the food court , Toys R us , and more make it exciting. The Jashn Mall is something so native to my stay in Dubai and the best part is the proximity to the airport. But beware if you have flights on weekend, arrange for your cab well in advance

“Don't leave it out”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Some visitors - as they mainly make sure they see Burj Khalifa ( Dubai mall ) and Mall of the Emirates - don't pay a visit to DFC. It was the mall we liked most in Dubai. It really is like a city and has everything to offer without giving the traditional feel of just a mall - boring and claustrophobic.
