“Excellent meat”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Still looking for a good steak after a bad experience at the Dubai mall T.G.I Friday (see other comment), I tried the Butcher at the mall of the Emirates. I've got a table for one easily, service was rapid. The waiter recommended the 400g rib eye. They serve a small selection of olive oil and sausage while they cook the meat. Meat was excellent, and cooked exactly as ordered. The only point to improve is that the few French fries were not enough cooked. Price is reasonable for the quality

“Great Steaks”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Great food and great service. The steaks were excellent and the kids enjoyed their dishes also. Prices are not low, but it is good value. I would go here again if in the area.

“Poor Quality, terrible service. Not worth it”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We went to JBR branch and this is not our first time but certainly the last one as the place degraded to much recently.
The steak took 50 minutes to be served and the mashed potatoes were cold. the meat had no taste, dry and hard and instead of being medium rare as requested it was served medium well. I remember the old good time of that place when the tenderloin was juicy.

We had to wait as well 10 minutes for a bottle of water and another 10 minutes for the ice cubes. When we asked the waiter about the delay in serving the steak he answered that because we ordered a medium cooking which takes longer than other cooking style..!!!!!!
Amazing!!! This an irrelevant answer and it is more like taking a client as stupid, what has the cooking style to do with 40 minutes delay.
After 10 minutes We asked the second waiter to double check with the kitchen about our order he came back saying that it will be ready in 5 minutes and that they are sorry for the delay as many of their staff are off today and some are on vacation.. Second most stupid excuse.

We asked to the bill which was overpriced comparing to the poor quality of meat & service. The waiter didn’t bother to return the change back. We left because we had enough and we left the change as a tip while they don’t deserve it.

In brief this place is NOT WORTH IT and there are many other choices in the same area with better quality

“Ideal spot for a 'pick me up' meal while shopping.”
Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

We enjoyed our food, very nice burgers with all the trimmings. Excellent beef and nicely cooked. The serving of bread (very fresh/tasty) immediately we sat down was welcome indeed. And no charge for that. Only drawback is no beer or glass of wine available in this outlet. Not that unusual, I know, for Dubai. But given there are loads of hotel restaurants with a full licence it seems just like silly rules for appearances sake or could it be to protect the 'hotel trade' whose owners are much better connected? Never. That would be just too cynical :-)

“Best steak ever....”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We went there several times, the service is great, they can advise you what to choose and what to combine, on the contrary to many other places in Dubai.
The Argentinian steak tasted like heaven, the mustard sauce and potatoes were tasty too.
Would definitely go again once I am back there....
