Not particularly near you I know, but there is a place in Lamcy Plaza Mall, ground floor at the back, and a small place next door to the Ramada Spinneys Bur Dubai (coast side entrance).

But I'm sure there will be loads of other shoe repair/key cutting place all over Dubai.

I know that there is one in Al Ghusais opposite the Union Co-Op (the key cutting shop is on the same side as the Karachi Darbar).

Monj Deu Spugsy, Monj Deu,

There's a place in MOE (Carrefour end), or I had ones cut in Burjuman SC (GL Carpark), took all of 30 seconds and cost AED 15 per key - didn't bother telling the landlord, no reason to).


Bonjour!

Hi there,
We tried Minutes in Mercato a couple of months ago and they said something about losing their license and not being able to cut keys anymore. Not sure if the situation is still the same.
