“Dragon Mart? Hmmm!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

If you live in Dubai and need fencing or yard equipment then this is the place for you. The rest of the items are quite tacky and junky. There is a huge kitchen shop for those that are interested in opening a restaurant. Other than that there isn't much here. If you're looking for an Asian adventure in Dubai and have nothing else to do go here, and know that everything is made in China. Some will like this place, others not so much.

“Waste of Time”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

As my title suggests. It was a waste of time and money. Not worth going there, Products are expensive and of course made in China so definitely not worth the price, It is expensive just to get there. If you need the same stuff at a cheaper price then stick to the souks near deira al nasser square,

“Big Hot mess”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

The dragon mart is huge. it's an assault to the senses. I was able to buy cheap beads and necklaces here. For about half of what I would purchase them at the mall. But the mall is too big, I have no patience to go all the way around. No wheelchairs for use. Air conditioning cannot cope with the desert heat.

“Very Different”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

This place is a long trek from Dubai and can take an hour to reach by taxi and a $50+ charge each way.
If you are in Dubai to have a shopping experience in an upmarket mall with top brand names this is not the place for you.
If however you want to go to a unique shopping mall with hundreds and hundreds of shops piled on top of one another - more like a market this is the place for you. You will find goods at a fraction of the normal retail price, but do check the quality before purchasing.

“Not worth to go”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

This place is not recommended at all. You will be disappointed if you go there. It is meant more for the locals rather then tourist. It's like a dead mall.
