  • A nice traditionally designed arabic souk with a good choice of restaurants. Some of the restaurants there are overlooking the fountains and are a good option for food and atmosphere.
  • Lovely place for business and dating. Near dubai mall and adress hotel. Amazing view towards dancing fountains of dubai mall
  • I love this place because it's near to burj khalifa and I go every evening to see the musical fountains...
  • There is thi Lebanese restaurant, the food is amazing, also from inside the souk you can see the fountains if you have dinner in one of the restaurants with terrace facing burj Khalifa
  • The mall is very nicely presented. Smells entice and there are lots of little stores to tempt. Leads to a number of restaurants.
