Perfect location for a relaxing evening walk and to have a laid back coffee in one of the cafes. Not ideal for smokers as designated smoking seats are almost non-existent

I have visited Al Qasba many times and enjoyed hanging out either with my family or friends. The place with many restaurants and caffes to chose from with different choices of food. It's best to visit in winter so you could enjoy sitting outside and having either coffee or a meal. Highly recommended.

Really good for families, something for older and younger. Eye of emirates is main attraction but also offer boat rides and coffee, restos, etc. newly opened stocked supermarket across, helpful for drinks and snacks. Kiddie play areas way too crowded but bigger rides are ok, although expect wait times in busy evenings/weekends. I find it more relaxing than other areas... More

It's nice place to spend evening, unless it is too hot. The view on and from Eye of Emirates is really nice. Restaurants and Bistros on both sides of channel offer food for everyone's taste.

Located at Al Taawun Road, the spot is a lovely pick to walk around on ay idyllic evening. I especially found few food joints and cafes around this spot that relaxed me after long work meeting when at Sharjah. Technically, this is a walking area around a narrow canal but I was pleasantly surprised as to how such a humble... More

Qasba is a pleasant stretch of walkways on both sides of a narrow canal. There are plenty of small and big places to grab a bit to eat/ something to drink. The outdoor seating by the canal is pleasant in the evenings. The Eye of the Emirates is at one end of the canal, and lots of amusement rides for... More
