Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Constant hassle to buy incredibly bad fakes. I know it’s their job and would not expect anything less. However reasonable fakes would have made the trip worthwhile.

Its very very frustrating when the customer service is not trained on how to maintain their temper infront of every customer it reflects very bad image of the company, I was on queue and I saw the counter next to me she just finished serving the last person in the line I went there to be served and lady name Charmel, she said go back to your line I am serving those people that are coming now, they were two ladies just arrived in after I approached her, I told I saw you don't have queue and decided to come to you because i have only 8pcs, just serve me, she said no! I will not serve you! she's called her supervisor Shankar for something simple that customer service should handle, I asked her infront of supervisor will serve me she said NO I will not infront of her supervisor, even no respect at all why call supervisor If you still continue talking back! I told supervisor i am not crazy i saw someone in the line and come straight and jump them even who will agree to be skipped!! I asked to check the camera, After the supervisor begged her to serve me as I had 8pcs only she served me with very bad attitude. I am a customer service but the level of the customer service we have in day to day Karama is very bad, if you're getting paid do your work properly and go home at peace, don't be the reason you spoil the company imagine.

There are 2 different Karama markets. There’s the outdoor market stalls set up which is small and not worth the trip then there is Karama centre, same thing but the stalls are inside. Both sell fake designer products of all sorts from watches to bags to clothes, You will get harassed by the sellers the moment you walk in. Not worth the trip. Both are located within walking distance of ADCB metro station. If you want fake products go to the gold souq and be taken upstairs by seller when they approach you at the gold souq.

If you are in search for fake brands and are want to buy plastic “look a likes” you can go. You have to be prepared to follow sellers into showrooms in office blocks. It takes time if you want sizes. Prices are high considering it is all “upper (fake) leather” Be prepared to negotiate prices.

Hossein is a very well spoken man whos very knowledgeable and friendly . No pressure to buy anything at all and the bags and shoes are priced reasonable. We literally purchase some items and saved time by not going to the Bazzar , They also ship to the UK which might be very good option for us since we know them and quality of products are good ,

I read a lot of reviews about Hossein or Dubaihandbags
I contact them last week to buy some Yeezy shoe they confirmed they have a size 47 BUT when we go there the color I wanted was out of stock so I end up with nothing and wasted 150 AED on taxi

We just visit few shops and decided to go back to hotel but don’t go if you are not prepared to be hassled
We end up buying some items from outside market which was managed by a guy called Hossein he was very easy going and amazing quality for products
