    Interesting Area
    Nice area near Raffles Dubai, with a decent mall, and some good eateries. Ate at the original Asha's restaurant, with really good food. The mall is relatively small, but with some unique attributes.

    Visit one of Dubai’s gems in the basement souk of Wafi
    With in Wafi Mall, in the underground Khan Murghan souk is one of Dubai’s gems. It is the studio of Amir Hossein Golshani, the most incredibly talented artist and calligrapher. I gave him an ordinary black pen and he returned it to me within two days, with not only the name in English but a beautiful Arabic saying engraved in Arabic in a spiral around the barrel of the pen. With the underlying colour of the metal coming through the black it is simply stunning and a long term keepsake. The word ‘ No’ does not seem to exist for Amir, he can work on metals, leather, shell etc and his small studio is an oasis of beauty, peace and amazing skill in a busy city.

    Wafi is quality- staff needs to improve
    Wafi is quality and a place to visit when visiting Dubai Mall. The sweets and food are of great quality. It is a pity that staff should pay more attention on people waiting to order or to pay and go, not good the staff to feel that customers are many anyway once dubai mall is of max attraction. It is important to maintain standard of quality as wafi is a really high quality name of itself

Pathetic effort on the Santa's Grotto. Its a charged visit that cost's 70dhs. For which you need to preregister in order to meet Santa. There are silly activities like taking a photo on a chair, a gift wrap done by an attendant,letter to Santa and arts and craft; that are offered and at most can occupy a child for about 40min. After which you start looking for things to do while waiting to see Santa. That wait so far has taken about 2 hours and still have 10 people to go before my kids get there turn...This is truly dissapointing and should be avoided.

Just found out after a 2 hour wait. The token system was not working and had been reset and now probably will end up waiting another 2 hours. This reminds me of US Arrivals immigration. Cramped spaces, can't sit and wait for hours to get your turn....

RUN AWAY!!!

A quiet Mall, few visitors, but awesome Egyptian decor. We wandered around for ages- and could have stayed longer.
Well worth a trip to get out of the heat
