Went here for lunch today with my husband, we both ordered our food and drinks - so far so good. About 10mins later my husbands food appeared, however mine didn't. About 5-10 mins past before I could even grab someone to ask if my food was going to turn up before he had finished. The waiter walked off, and came... More

Outdoor seats were full. We had to sit indoor. There's live band. Quite entertaining. The staffs were so friendly. They gave pen and paper to my son. :) We ordered the Pho Bo and chicken rice. My son loves the noodles so much. I like the soya sauce for the chicken rice. Taste sweet.

The place has a nice menu with international cuisine that can satisfy all the company depending on what they like to eat. I love their salads as every time I ordered they were very fresh and tasty. The chicken salad is my favorite. Choose the tables outside for dinner to enjoy the fountains. Service was as well friendly. Thank you... More

For lunch I ordered the Greek salad and I'm sorry to say that a few hours later I got sick; fortunately it was short-lived and I was better that evening. I can't say that everything on the menu will have the same results, but I will warn you about the salad.

I love Social House and often recommend to visitors to pop in their when in Dubai Mall for lunch or dinner. Now we joined some friends with a child for breakfast. They open at 9am and we sat outside with a view of the Burj Kalifa and fountains. The breakfast menu is relatively small, but the portions are not! My... More

Visited this restaurant for dinner in March 2017. We sat on a table outside overlooking the Burj khalifa and the fountains. All staff were very helpful and the food was good. Will definitely return on my next visit to Dubai

As the name says: a place to socialized. The staff were very social.. that one feels you are visiting an old place. The decor is rustic and details are taken into consideration like the stool for ladies bag. The food were amazingly fresh... and well presented. Very positive vibes.

Since Dubai Mall is a touristic place, I was not expecting to find such an amazing place with a huge variety of food for all kind of meals! I've tried sushi, salads, drinks and many other dishes and I still don't know which one is better, they are all very tasty and delicious. Service is also very efficient and the... More

Food is alright. Good is that you find Asian and western flavors on their menu. It is an okay place but definetly nicer food around Dubai mall and in this area than social house.

Staying in Downtown Dubai

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.
