Has a great breakfast menu and the outdoor seating gives a excellent view of Dubai Fountain. Service can be a little sketchy at times but all in all it's a great spot for a casual meal.

I have been brought here a couple of times by friends and most recently by my partner who was determined to eat Pho which they had seen listed online. We went here for breakfast at the weekend which is served until 2pm. The location was well-appointed so you could gaze on shoppers passing in the mall or sit outside with... More

Centrally located in the Dubai Mall cafe area I would not suggest going out of your way to eat here. The service is extremely slow and the food/drinks that you receive when you finally do receive them really wasn't worth the wait. A lot of staff, including a manager, but none ever seem available to assist. Plenty of other (and... More

The setting is so casual and the seats and bench-like seats just make you relaxed. It is a great place to take your date, the place has a relaxed atmosphere, the place mat is multifunctional, it is a summary of your menu too. I thought that was cool :). It makes you forget you are in the mall. I can... More

We had a fantastic evening meal here. It was good value for money and the food was delicious. We sat outside to enjoy views of the fountains and they didn't disappoint. For starter we had chilli and garlic prawns which was extremely tasty, and for main, we had chicken fettuccini and lamb shank in red curry sauce which were also... More

I went with my friends to have a late dinner at the Dubai Mall. It is the second time that I've tried Social House and definitely much better experience than the first. We ordered two types of salads: chicken and shrimps. Both were really delicious. We also ordered one type of sushi; it was good, but not wow. For the... More

This is a lovely place in Dubai Mall that is different to all the American fried food places, The salads are delicious with a large portion offered. The prices are reasonable and the staff are friendly.

The location of the restaurant was amazing!! We were sitting at the front of the Dubai Fountain ! We ordered some sushi and after that the Quinoa Salad and my friend the Caesar Salad. It was delicious and not very expensive. The staff was very very friendly.

We were shopping in the Dubai Mall and stumbled on this absolutely brilliant restaurant. Eastern and Western foods served, massive menu and really good value for money. A recommendation would be the Nasi Goreng which was huge, extremely tasty and came with a little side of green salad, yummy. We had duck spring roles to start which were really light... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood 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.
