    Made a quick trip here. Many stores to chose from. The area is beautiful with so much to do if the mall is not your thing. Walking around the area if you have the time would be worth it.

    Not easy to find the shop you need
    Small mall compared to Dubai Mall
    But the good thing the shopping is good because there’s more discount available

    One of the Shopping Complexes in the world that I have been which keep its entire building clean and healthy. Even the toilets are clean, dry and minimal odour smell. It has two separated choice whether branded and costly or a normal affordable brand. Space are generous.

    I visited this mall on my first night here in Abu Dhabi. I just grabbed a cab from the hotel and asked the driver to take me to a mall, and this is the one he chose. Upon entering, mall security checked my Alhosn App which is a UAE Covid vaccine passport. It took me a bit of effort to get registered in it and upload my US vaccination record a few days ago, and I thought I was good to go. Evidently, I needed it to show a negative PCR test as well. One mall cop said I could get one downstairs at some clinic they have which I did. Security here was polite and friendly, and I don't think they would have refused me entry if I wouldn't do it, and I'm glad I did. Abu Dhabi is not like Dubai; they are a whole lot more serious about Covid safety. Everywhere I go, they're either taking my temperature or checking this app or both. Makes it a whole lot easier to do the things I want to do with total green status on the app. And you know something, it makes me feel safe that the government is very serious about protecting people's health. And the people here seem to be supportive of these strict measures, unlike back home where a semi-violent, noisy minority of people whine and scream about being denied their rights. Selfishly, they don't believe in everyone's human right to good public health. I think they're unhappy with their own lives by a lack of both professional and personal achievement, so they want to make everyone else miserable like they are. And you know who their narcissistic leader is don't you?. Enough, I just wound-up going to the Lulu Hypermarket here at the mall. Hypermarket is a term they use here for a glorified supermarket I think. This place is very clean and well stocked. Ended-up buying a couple salads, some fruit, and a little chocolate as well. And by the way, that PCR test was around $15, unlike the US where you can pay over $200 unless you're sick. And my negative results showed-up on the app by the time I woke-up the next morning.

    One of the best malls with the highest level of cleanliness, COVID protocol, and a lot of stores with discounts where a family can go and pick anything with quality products and the best prices.

    Good place for everyday shopping or a weekend evening outing with family shopping. May not give you premium shopping destination feel but more of a common man go to place. You can find everything from clothes, watches, hypermarkets, abayas and not to forget the biggest Gold market in Abu Dhabi.

    When Poke was launched, I was lucky yo be in Vancouver and have the fresh sashimi on top of every bowl. Nice surprise to find next to my home, in Shams Mall, food court..next to Subway and Popeyes ; Super Poke🥳. John... my helper in deciding the right bowl...and wow...very fresh veggies (no rice for me), lots os sashimi...guacamole and finishing in a blink of an eye. Price just right, 40 AED for a small which is quite big. Well done guys!!

    We visited meat and co for an early dinner, as alway we got down early for a walk around the souk, we love to walk around the outside area by the water.

    Sadly there is now construction going on on the other side and it will mostly block the amazing view of the Grand Mosque.

    The souk is still a great place with a boat ride around the water ways available again.

    Had an enjoyable couple of hours at the gallery, some interesting exhibits and free entrance. Would recommend the cafe; I had intended to just have a coffee but the menu is great and the burger I had was exceptional, as good as Shake Shack and that's saying something!

    We were staying in the Jumeirah, so 'The Avenue' was a mere set of doors away, with direct access into the two floors of high-end shopping.

    Each time we visited, to enjoy the aircon and have a browse around some beautiful shops, there was hardly anyone about. This is not your average mall for every day shopping. Point question, how many malls have a resident Aston Martin dealership Even the Waitrose at the entrance had a car park dotted with Rolls Royces and Daimlers.

    All-in-all, worth a visit, if you're nearby. It really is a interesting view into another world.

    Small place, dull ambience probably coz we visited in afternoon and there weren't many people around. Might be convenient for residents around the mall for their basics shopping.
