Al Mankhool (Arabic: المنخول‎‎) is a locality in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Located in western Dubai, in the area of Bur Dubai, Al Mankhool is largely a residential area. However, several restaurants, hotels and financial service corporations (such as Citibank and National Bank of Dubai) are located in Al Mankhool. Route D 90 (Al Mankhool Road) runs east–west through the locality, while Khaled bin Al Waleed Street runs perpendicular to Al Mankhool road. The section of Khaled bin Waleed Street that is in the proximity of Al Mankhool is sometimes referred to as Bank Street [2][3] by expatriates.

Al Mankhool is bordered by Umm Hurair in the north, Al Rifa in the west, Al Karama to the east and Al Jafiliya to the south. Important landmarks in Al Mankhool include the Al Mankhool Community Health Centre and the Bur Dubai Etisalat service centre.
