Sahara Centre

The Sahara Centre is strategically located on the Dubai-Sharjah Highway and first opened its doors to customers in February 2002. This Sharjah landmark has become the ideal place for visitors to experience a diverse range of shopping outlets, dining options and entertainment facilities with something to offer every member of the family, all under one roof.

Already packed full of shops, restaurants and coffee lounges and a host of leisure facilities, it’s hard to imagine a more diverse lifestyle destination in Sharjah, but this year Sahara Centre has become even bigger and better with upgraded facilities, and additional stores as part of the shopping mall’s extension.


Sahara Centre allows shoppers to browse among a wide selection of stores including fashion, sports, toys, cosmetics, jewellery, books, home furnishings and electronics among others. Some of the mall’s key anchor stores include Debenhams, Marina Exotic Home Interiors, Toys ‘R’ Us, Home Centre and Spinneys as well as entertainment such as Grand Sahara Cinemas and Adventureland.

The mall’s ambitious extension breathes new life and adds even more diversity thanks to 120 new places to shop including Zara, Iconic, Matalan, Emax, Fitness First and Baby Shop. Likewise, prominent brands include Mango, Lacoste, Steve Madden, Tommy Hillfiger, Sunglass Hut, Swarovski, Promod, Bershka, Pull and Bear, Rodeo Drive, Ferre, Vero Moda among others.

Sahara Centre continues to be home to Adventureland, one of the largest indoor Family Entertainment Centres in the UAE, dedicating 70,000 square feet to 20 thrilling rides and attractions including the UAE’s first indoor roller coaster, first multi-level train and first indoor water flume ride.

Adventureland’s Adventure Zone is a brand new entertainment centre and part of the new extension with a jungle/safari park theme and an even wider selection of thrilling rides and other forms of family entertainment, making Sahara Centre more fun for the entire family.

Movie lovers will be delighted to see the changes that have been made to Grand Cinemas, situated on the first level of the mall. The cinema has been totally revamped to include a host of new facilities, making a night at the movies an even grander experience.

After all the shopping and activities, visitors to Sahara Centre can choose from a wide selection of food and beverage outlets located in the multicultural food court where they can find an array of international cuisines, alongside 10 cafes and 9 restaurants, ensuring a pleasant dining experience for all. The food variety offered by the 51 outlets in the mall ranges from Italian, Chinese, Iranian to Indian and Arabic, all of which are guaranteed to gratify the tastes of all age groups and nationalities.

The new extension adds an interesting dynamic to the mall which is home to a wide-range of new international restaurants including Paul, Chopsticks, Bennigans, Vapiano, Applebee’s, Russo's New York Pizzeria, and Kosebasi.

Sahara Centre consistently attracts a large number of visitors every month. Open from 10am to 11pm on weekdays and from 10am until 12am at weekends.
