I've been to this restaurant on 3 different occasions, both at the Mall of Emirates as well as the Dubai Mall, and I've loved each time! Combining the three visits, there were 7 different people dining, and each one of us enjoyed our meals, the atmosphere and the service. Highly recommend this restaurant. The portions are big!

It was my first try with African restaurant and i'm little bit disappointed. We ordered fillet steaks which were very average. Service made a mistake and give mine to my wife and her to me.

This restaurant is specialized in meat, but in my opinion not of the same quality as it's sister branch "The Meat Co." the food wasn't bad, service was excellent. Portions is on the big side.

Currently sat in the restaurant now as I type this. My mother and I have both just enjoyed very tasty and reasonably priced meals in Tribes. The staff were very attentive, the food was delicious, and the ambience in the restaurant was great! I would definitely recommend this place to everyone.
