Ali Mall, Quezon City

3.5
#10 of 14 in Shopping in Quezon City
Ali Mall is the first major shopping mall in the Philippines. It is located at Araneta Center, Cubao, Quezon City beside SM Cubao. The mall was named in honor of boxer Muhammad Ali, and was built in 1976, making it one of the oldest malls in the country. Recently, they relaunched the new Cinemas and Food Court.HistoryConstruction on the mall began in 1975 after Muhammad Ali's boxing victory against Joe Frazier in Araneta Coliseum, dubbed "Thrilla in Manila". At the time there were no malls in the entire country, so Ali addressed a speech to the Philippines to build a shopping mall near the Araneta Center in honor of his victory, a shopping mall with a floor area of 62,000 sq.m. In the 1980s, the mall has been undergoing expansions and renovations since its construction. In 2009, an expansion to Ali Mall was opened.

  • Food very good - both had spaghetti and fries and iced tea, and they honoured my disabled rail card and gave me discount  more »
  • Good shopping mall, we can any product and so many food outlets to eat, different types of food, best price  more »
  • I live in the neighborhood, this is my regular shopping mall, although not large, but it is convenient, the store has. Due to live here for some time, strongly believe that this Mall was in need of renovation, toilet what restaurants and other stores look old. Free Zumba at the bottom here, but felt that the dance has too few choices. I hope that there are other dances you can learn.

  • Grew up going here with family and now that I have a family of my own, Ali Mall still is a go to place. More food selection please. Sure hope you have your own supermarket like before.
  • Its great that this mall has been renovated over the years. Its no longer that run down looking mall that was built decades ago. At least not from the inside. It houses satellite offices for government agencies. Food court is at the top floor. New cinemas. Banks along side the satellite offices.
  • Good for buying music instruments or equipment cause i saw a few stores. But so many empty spaces, not much to do there. Food court monopolized the bottled water retail, you have no choice but to buy a 350ml bottle for p25
  • This was constructed in 1976. Few years ago, you will notice the oldness of it. But when i visited the mall last Christmas, i was so surprised of its rebirth.
  • Small size Mall but plenty of food stalls to choose from. The advantage of the mall is it stands in the vicinity of Araneta Centre where condominiums, bus terminals, and other malls also located around it. It has a link bridge inside to adjacent mall namely SM Mall. It is also near from Novotel Hotel.
