Grabbing lunch at the mall always feels like such a dilemma if you want good food… I recently went for lunch for a catch up with a friend to Social House. A great choice if you don’t know what you’re craving… Finding a good mall restaurant in Dubai is important as we’re constantly in shopping centres.
Restaurant name and location: Social House, Dubai Mall.
Atmosphere: It was lunch on a weekday, the restaurant was quite full at a shopping centre – yet still felt private in a strange way. Great atmosphere and didn’t feel like I was having lunch in the midst of a busy mall.
What they say: Casual conversations, exquisite woods, and natural lighting, create a terrace-like ambiance that invite you to be at ease.

What to order:
-Halloumi salad with hazelnuts, pomegranate seeds, beetroot, mint leaves and greens. (interesting, delicious and already craving this again…)
-Popcorn shrimp salad with mushrooms, mayo and apple dressing.
-Chicken and shrimp dumplings (Gyoza – half grilled/half fried, but very good.)
-Spaghetti alioglio garlicky (one of my favourite pasta dishes, I would order it sans the chicken next time.)
Service: Great – everyone was sweet, very on it – they even served the dishes we had to share. Sam, our server was fab.
What I loved:
-I always struggle with finding delicious salads – and that halloumi salad was just…
-The portions are super generous. Their salads definitely work as a main meal.
-Location in the mall is great – you can park in the Grand parking & you’re good to go.
-The variety of food – you can be craving pasta, pizza, salads and you’d be happy.
-When anything’s ready, they bring it over so the food gets to you quite fast.
