Where to shop

Meena Bazaar

Al Ghubaiba Rd

If you’re looking for something different from Dubai’s countless luxury shopping malls, Meena Bazaar is exactly it. Grab some comfy footwear and get ready for a vibrant and cultural experience. Located near Khalid Bin Waleed Street, this bazaar will take you on a journey through time in the form of a traditional shopping experience. With its narrow roads and countless bargain shops, Meena Bazaar is built by the huge South Asian population of Dubai mimicking the busy market places of New Delhi or Hyderabad. It is of no doubt that the ways of the marketplace will get you to test your bargaining skills as it is packed with stands and stores of authentic textiles, jewellery, souvenirs, perfumes, chocolates and handicrafts that you cannot find anywhere else in Dubai and all at unbeatable prices.

Whether you’re seeking kaftans, authentic Indian and Pakistani suits, or a tailor to customise the fit, the bazaar has almost everything available though it is most known for the gold, clothes and food. And yes, we said gold! Meena Bazaar is known as the ultimate shopping destination to discover all that glitters.

Also, you’ll see the colourful and aromatic spices brought straight from India and Pakistan and set in picturesque displays that will make you get your chef on. Not to mention the numerous hole-in-the-wall dining joints and street food stalls creating delicious lip-smacking snacks that are easy on the wallet and entirely authentic in South Asian flavours and experience. Meena Bazaar is also the place you want to be if you are seeking vegetarian options. Try Veg World for some great paani puri, vada pav and aloo sabji, or Rangoli known for their Gujarati Thali and delicious samosas. Be sure to visit at night, when the market especially comes to life with the atmospheric hustle and bustle along with bright lights and sounds of a marketplace seem straight from a storybook and will make you entirely forget the lux and urban side of town.

Keep in mind the bazaar is closed before 4:00 on Fridays as most shopkeepers are attending the weekly Friday prayer. The bazaar then comes to life at 4:30 with an abundance of families, tourists, and sellers that are enjoying the arrival of the weekend in Dubai.
