There is also a big supermarket chain called Coop. The mall is very popular with expat ladies because a huge "Brands For Less" shop is located within the new extension of the mall.

Another reason to visit the Abu Dhabi Mall is definitely the PF Changs restaurant and to eat the Dynamite Shrimps. Its a must for all newcomers in Abu Dhabi and we always take our visitors their.

The Galleria Mall - Al Maryah Island

This amazing high luxury mall right in the heart of the city on Al Maryah Island has been greatly extendet in summer 2019. There are 2 parts of it now and you can enter from 2 sides (just follow the signboards). There is plenty of underground parking (4 entrances) and a long sea promenade featuring outdoor bars and restaurants.

The older mall offers 2 levels of shopping and the new part has a whopping 4 levels of new shops. We recommend the delicious Texas Roadhouse for food and to bring a lot of time to spend. This is also your best chance to see "real" locals in their traditional clothes as this mall is, beside the Nation Galleria on the corniche, the most poular mall with Emiratis.

The entire building is beautifully bright with natural lighting from above and a very luxurious stylish design. It has fast become one of our favorite malls in Abu Dhabi due to its spaciousness and architecture. There is a large foodcourt and a cinema and, a long awaited, large Decathlon sports shop.

Khalidiyah Mall

Last but not least we want to introduce to you the Khalidiyah mall. Its maybe not the most stylish one and you will rarely find a tourist here, but it is nonetheless worth mentioning because of its popularity with the locals. It features a large Lulu Hypermarket on 2 levels, a La Brioche coffee shop and a Brands For Less outlet. There is also plengty of outdoor and underground parking and a large taxi stand right in front of the mall.

Have a coffee at La Brioche, shop Desigual dresses for as little as AED60 (€12) at Brands for Less and stock up on your groceries. This mall doesnt have a lot of fancy shops but its great for authentic souvenir shopping (dates, chocolates, honey, baclava, incense) and to get a feeling what the local population is really like. And you will probably bump into us as this is our favorite mall for groceries shopping.
