Although tribes is one of our favorite restaurants, we were very disappointed during our last visit. I've informed the waitress since we arrived that it was my sister's birthday and would like to surprise her with the "African fiesta" they usually do. However when we finished our food, I reminded the waiter of the dessert along with the drums, he... More

Great place, nice decor, friendly staff and delicious food. I changed my table 4 times just for a better view, the staff were great by moving us with a big smile. We ordered Ox Tail and the Deer meat both were excellent and worth the price. Great place for a birthday celebration, the team sings and play African drums and... More

The food was very good. The steak was cooked perfectly and my wife was very impressed with the oxtail. The dessert was made special as it was the last night for one of friends before he left Dubai back home.

Had very good lunch with friends at Tribes-Mall of the emirates. Had avocado salad and tomato balsamic salads for starters and I loved them. I recommend the baked salmon for the main course. A bit pricey for a casual food in a mall.

Confined within the Mall of Emirates, this restaurant offer a very cozy and warm african atmosphere. We ordered, my wife and I, 2 butcher skewers. To be honest, food was correct. We should have ordered a more traditional dish, but anyways. Staff and service were extremely friendly. Busi, the waitress, helped us make some choices. There was a birthday on... More

Tribes present a totally African Ambiance in their restaurant. Food is good and it is served by pleasant and professional staff. Decorations and the general feel of the p[lace is quite an experience along with food from Africa. It is a good place for a good meal.

Service was very friendly, but not rude. Food was tasty, in fact, I hadn't expected a lot, that's why very surprised. I saw many birthday celebrations at the table. Their way to show was very different from what many restaurants usually do it. Good appeal to the guests, I guess. Manager greeted to all tables at the beginning moment and... More
