Helpful staff. Massive choice on any kind of books. Well organised, clean and definitely a place for people who love books. Pretty much the only address in the UAE, where you can satisfy your hunger for books.

The Japanish-based Kinokuniya at the top floor of Dubai Mall is the largest book store in the UAE. So, if you are looking for new books or magazines, this is the right place to pay a visit. Highly recommended!

I spent over an hour in the book store. I have seen more better book stores as prices were so high. I wouldn't recommend going there as it is very pricey and staff were not friendly.
