On hearing Tribes had relocated in the Mall Of Emirates, we were anxious to see if the new location could live up to expectations. We had visited the ground floor Tribes on at least four occasions before they moved. Tribes is now located on the 2nd floor - next to Eat Greek (opposite the Adidas store) We were greeted by Mariah, who welcomed us with a warm smile and made us feel immediately at home. Her customer service was impeccable. Mariah was very attentive to our needs and interacted with us throughout our meal. We were also treated to a lovely drumming performance while indulging some dessert. Definitely recommend requesting their signature drumming performance if you are celebrating an occasion e.g. a birthday! Overall, we were very impressed with the service. The food was absolutely scrumptious and staff were very welcoming. Prices are reasonable at around 100 - 140 AED for a main course. Total bill for a family of 3, circa 300 - 400 AED Loved it and will certainly return soon! P.S. If you have the entertainer app you can purchase a main course and get the second free.

We were greeted in the most welcoming manner by the staff of Tribes who assisted us to our seats and even provided us with a phone charger which we needed. Fidel was our waiter. He was super friendly, funny and helpful. He made sure to give us some hand sanitiser when we sat down and when we were leaving too - a great sign! We both had the Fully Loaded Burger which was very tasty. As we used the Entertainer app, the price of our meal was amazing for what we got. We have eaten in Tribes many times before but I just really wanted to share a big thank you and shout out for Fidel who made us feel so welcome and made our experience so nice. Thank you, Fidel!

Very welcoming and extremely efficient staff. Our waiter Silas was knowledgeable about the menu with extremely good customer skills. Like all the staff he went about his tasks with a smile on his face. They are well trained and a credit to your manager and the company ! We had your New Zealand Fillet steaks which I would rate as amongst the best I have tasted. It was a pleasure to eat in this restaurant !

I tried a Kobe ribeye steak for the first time, so there was some apprehension. There was a distinct venison flavour, which was okayish, but it was not at all succulent, as a ribeye should be, and overall very disappointing and not worth the extra cost. Otherwise the food was great and the service excellent, so I'll be back, but I'll stick to normal beef in future

Dear Pablo, Thank you so much for taking your time to review us. We are saddened to hear that your Wagyu Steak was not to your expectation. This happens to be one of our best cuts and we are disappointed it wasn't satisfactory. I promise to investigate the same and ensure that the we offer the same quality meat we always do. Thank you for your honest feedback and look forward to welcoming you for a much greater experience. Best regards, Tribes management.

Great place for tasty lunch whilst shopping. The meal will fulfil any hungry shopper as the portions are large. The menu has a great selection and the meat melts in your mouth as it has obviously been marinated for hours and cooked to perfection. Staff are friendly and attentive.

We were a family of 15 and had 2 tables. I asked at the entrance of the restaurant if we were able to use our entertainer voucher for a platter and was told ok, but after we have settled down whilst ordering, we were told no. The manager Bafana was very rude and not accommodating whatsoever. In the past, we have used the entertainer voucher for a platter. This sort of hospitality is not acceptable, certainly in Dubai. Despite the food being good, the hospitality of the staff/manager is not something I would like someone else to experience.

I would rate 10/5 if it were possible. Tribes is the perfect stop for a very hearty, relaxing and homemade meal. Every single staff member in the establishment will treat you like family, they will play traditional drums for your birthday, serve you absolutely delicious and perfected dishes and never disappoint! I've been supporting them since they opened for the first time in Dubai and I've always been impressed by the quality and care put into the food. My server for today was Maria, she was extremely kind and welcomed me back to the restaurant, took my order efficiently and was an overall delight to talk to! As usual, Tribes stands at an easy 10/10 or higher and will continue to stay there as long as they keep this up. P.S- The oxtail is gorgeous, but if you're someone who likes salmon or seafood done right, do yourself a favor and order the baked salmon. Absolutely heavenly.

While we were staying at Dubai for a few days near the Mall of the Emirates we stumbled on this restaurant in the said mall. We were looking for something different and the African inspired food attracted our attention. We had the Peri Peri Tiger Prawns served with a paella and the Jamaican boneless chicken. The prawns were large and plump and full of flavour and the paella accompaniment was also very tasty. The chicken was perfectly spiced and was of the utmost succulence. We licked our platters clean! Also don’t miss out on the steak fries as an accompaniment. Golden crispy on the outside and moist and fluffy on the inside. We were served by Mae Amor who was extremely pleasant and very helpful and had a gracious manner. A great asset to the company. We also met the manager, Feker, who stopped by to chat with us after the meal, which is also a good sign of an excellent manager with good customer relations skills. He is also a friendly and welcoming man. It is not a cheap eat, but it has the feeling of 5 star dining but in a relaxed and unpretentious environment. Well done Tribes from David and Roger on the way back to Australia.

Had dinner at Tribes on Sunday the 10th. Had a succulent and tender steak, served with a side dish of creamy mash and pepper sauce. It was an amazingly good dish,.Really delish. My son had their Moroccan chicken burger. His feedback was that it was tops 👍 The ambience was pleasant and relaxing. Such a welcome vibe. Friendly and helpful staff who wish to make it an incredible experience. One would do well to try them out. Well worth the visit.

I really loved the place. Seating is comfortable. The menu looked really delicious. I ordered the Oxtail with mashed potatoes. It was really good and tender. They also serve bread and butter which was also tasty. For drinks I got a drink named coco which consists of pineapple, coconut water and something else. The staff is very nice.y waitress Mariah was extremely friendly and nice. She knows how to guide you through the menu and knows the best platters. Thumbs up for Mariah. I would recommend this place as there are not a lot of similar choices around.

The food was amazing! I would suggest to go for the Australian Beef Rump. More importantly, Melissa took great care of us. Food was served so fast, everything we needed was given quickly and with quality. Definitely would come back and I hope whoever is reading this will try and have this experience. ❤️❤️❤️
