The Mall of Qatar is expected to serve 20 million customers annually and will feature a three-storey central amphitheatre with a massive domed roof, called the Oasis, housing themed restaurants, fine dining and family fun food experiences.

Spread over 165,000 square metres, the mall will have a major hypermarket, five department stores, 20 restaurants and an indoor streetscape with flagship stores from around the world.
