“Good food, great views..!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

The menu can be a bit confusing since they offer multiple cuisines, however the food is always good..!! I really enjoy their Thai food although I hear their burgers are quiet good too. The most delightful thing about eating at Social house is their outdoor seating near the Dubai mall fountain that can take your food experience to another level. The service is a bit slow but the staff is courteous & helpful.

“good for a quick meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I think Social House offers good value for money, with waitress on place when needed and eager to advise you what to choose. Lunch was served relatively fast (within 15-20 minutes) and was tasty. And fruit coctails they serve are really nice!

“Good location, decent food but service needs to improve”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

The place is very pretty, done up well. Located by the Dubai fountains, this is a prime location for tourists who would like to have dinner by beautiful Dubai Fountains. The place always intrigued us, so we went there for dinner last night.

The staff/usher (the manager who assigns tables) is a very defensive & rude lady. We waited there for a bit, but the usher chose to seat the ones who came after us earlier (slight discrimination based on colour there). We expressed our displeasure, the staff got defensive & rude.

We got the place to sit right at the back, there were two other staff members (MJ & a trainee) who were very courteous & polite to us & gave us good seats. They took care of us really well while we were there.

Food presentation is very good. Their menu concept (in a hanger), organisation (small plates, east, west) was very impressive. The food was good, well prepared. Their iced teas is something I will strongly recommend.

Will visit there again, but I would want them to rectify the staff attitude.

“Best of the best from East to West!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Only place where you can taste specialties of many nations! Not so expensive, but food quality exceeds expectations! Friendly staff as well with good product knowledge. Cozy place with choice of seating near the Dubai Fountain for a more enjoyable dinner! Definitely a place to dine either with friends or a date or with family!

“Good food and friendly service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

Located at Dubai Mall with a terrace viewing the fountains.

It gets very busy during the weekend but If you manage to go a bit later then usual, you will have no problems.

Food is good and the service very friendly with basics knowledges. What you spend is all worth it.

An important hint:
Sushi, Indian, Italian, food from all over the word but stick with the classic dishes!
