The brand’s flagship Swedish Café will be available for dine-in and take away including favorites such as the shawarma, the hot-dog and Swedish pastries.

“I am so happy and excited to welcome the world-renowned IKEA to our Al WAHDA MALL, in the heart of Abu Dhabi. It has been our constant endeavor to bring world-class shopping experience to the discerning shoppers of Abu Dhabi and the launch of IKEA will further boost the retail sector of this great city”, said Ashraf Ali MA, Executive Director, Lulu Group International.

“One of our key strategic objectives at IKEA is to reach and engage with many more of the many people, and with the opening of our second store in Abu Dhabi we edge closer to achieving our goal. We know that time is of the essence for the many people therefore with the mall’s strategic and central location, we will be bringing the IKEA experience closer to people’s homes, in a more convenient and compact IKEA store”, said Vinod Jayan, Managing Director – IKEA UAE, Egypt and Oman.

“Al Wahda Mall remains a top destination for shopping, entertainment and leisure in the heart of Abu Dhabi, so we are thrilled to be able to bring our new IKEA concept store to this location.
