Don't get me wrong, there is nothing bad about the place or the food, but besides the friendliness of the staff and pieces of decor there is no resemblance with African food. The menu is very close to any western restaurant. Said that, the food was ok ( ordered ribs, juicy and well seasoned) but a bit pricey. After all in line with the sophistication of the mall itself.

I think its fair to say this is one of my favourite restaurants in Dubai.

Tribes serves excellent food in a down to earth manner, with a menu that surpasses even the upper end steak houses in Dubai.

Its a must do for a casual breakfast/lunch or dinner or even for an occasion!

My must have everytime is the Squid starter, and usually a steak or burger with sweet potato fries which I dont think you can get any better than in the whole of Dubai.

On arrival they also present you with the BEST bread loaf and butter which varies in flavour from time to time, but it is always perfect!

The food wS terrific. Especially the ribs or the oxtail. The portions are large so it's probably best to share and order extra sides. The restaurant is located on the ground floor in the Mall of The Emirates right and so it's quite centrally located.

I like the staff and the environment, specially when is somebody's B-Day :P they sing something which makes everything fun :D

The food is great, just tried a Burger but it was good.

I found the prices a little high comparing to other options on Mall Of The Emirates!!!

The lighting on the restaurant seemed really dark.

While I'm not sure how authentically African Tribes menu is, the decor and friendly staff help cover that up. The menu selection is different in a good way and the choices are colourful and varied. The complimentary bread is delicious and the grilled chicken variations a real treat. Portions are also generous. The steak is a little over-priced but the quality and grill make it easy to overlook that. In all, Tribes is a nice place if you're looking for a change from the usual.
