Nice meal in Dubai Mall

We ate here for dinner after wandering through the mall and it had a nice vibe and good food. The food is wide and varied and I enjoyed a really good (and really big) wagyu burger. I have to say I didnt choose the healthiest thing on the menu, but it was a good burger! My colleagues ate a lamb... read more

Came back(!) for dinner, as I have been here 4 years ago. Everything remains the same from the exciting variety of foods to the evening view of the Dubai Fountain which is why you should choose this place. Service is very bustling and I unfortunatly got a serious foodpoisoning from the raw salmon this time...

When at the Dubai Mall there's a dizzying array of dining options to choose from (ignoring the restaurants located in the three adjacent hotels). We were looking for a lighter lunch and wanted to try something a little different (and not an American chain restaurant!) so we settled on Social House. The restaurant has a funky menu which is divided... More

Great place to have something to eat and drink whilst watching the fountains. As the outdoor seating area is a stones throw from the display is does get rather busy at night but because the area is slightly elavated you get a good view regardless of how many people are watching. The food is very good and the service is... More

We ordered three types of sushi, liked the popcorn shrimp but the other two sushi were just too fishy for us (dylan blossom roll and philadelphia roll). After that, we ordered a portion of mie goreng. As a native, I would say it tasted just okay but they served a generous portion good for two.

Went for lunch on a Friday. Placed was packed and we had to wait a while for a table. Was not worth the wait. Service was slow, and food was average. We ordered a salad, dumplings and maki. All tasted the same and were a bit bland.

Ate at The Social House yesterday. Very nice ambience and interior. For Dubai prices, it's pretty normal especially a restaurant offering a menu like this and so close to the fountain, etc. We paid around 80Dirhams per person for a salad or main dish plus drink.Food was generous in portion serving, and taste was quite good, but drinks are way...

W My wife and I have been here twice before and have on both occasions complained about how long it has taken to get water. Friday 20 February was just the same.

Had dinner here twice and, given the range of offerings at Dubai Mall it says something that I returned. Portions are very large - especially the Wagyu burger. Service was OK on the first visit but poor on the second. Location is interesting as it is right by the exit to the Dubai Fountains. You can watch a continuous flow... More

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
