  • Overdue review of Wafi Mall and the excellent Bosporus Restaurant. The Mall has all you need and was never busy on the few times we visited - shopping changing money, a night of open air entertainment...  more »
  • Never busy which is really relaxing. Very good clothes shops with excellent staff. I would happily shop here again.  more »
  • This Mall was a pleasant surprise. The discovered almost by chance when I was in the Dubai Mall to this stop (3) on the red line of Hope Off to meet a resort in the desert (in fact free ride, a bus plus Hope). We had to wait a while and then we decided to go in. Everything beautiful. The Egyptian pyramid-shaped decoration fills the eyes and the heart. Inside a thousand things to see such as chandeliers and giant Egyptian statues and inside panels, ceiling, floor, walls anyway everything beautifully decorated. We were delighted when we found an Egyptian market underground with magnificent details, breathtaking. It also has restaurants, being the main (underground) wonderful all in the Egyptian style. At that time we decided to go back in another because we didn't have time to see everything and the attraction is a must. We're back in the day to savor every detail of this hidden place, apparently without much disclosure but of an extraordinary beauty. I highly recommend. Is on 3 bus stop hope.

  • It looks like you're not in the heart of Dubai. Takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the city and back to ancient Egypt. The structure is full of ancient Egyptian monuments and figures. Very elegantly designed and kept place! Doesn't look this elegant and big from outside- you must go into the compound to appreciate the size and beauty!
  • It’s like seeing Egypt in Dubai. Apart from being eye candy, the shopping options aren’t much. Dining is great though, some of my favorite restaurants are here. Downside is their light show is not regular. Probably dependent on how many spectator are there. At that time, there’s just us waiting and waited for another 15 minutes but we didn’t see anything
  • WAFI Mall is a fun place with a lot of different things to do. There's loads of shops and an underground souk (market) where you can get really cool fragrances and clothes. I actually found there while looking for the City Center. That's like right opposite it. WAFI is definitely worth visiting if you want to go to different parts of Dubai while you visit.
  • Beautifully designed. Loved the architecture. Its usually peaceful so you can shop there with ease. Great promotions as well. Would visit there more often if they have more restaurants in food court.
