“A very good range of juicy steaks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

I have eaten several times at Butcher shop in Mall of Emirates, we know very well this brand from South Africa, it has the same food quality as the original restaurants of this brand in Cape Town or Johannesburg. We like very much the boerewors, we buy them to take home.

Last month I had been invited for a business dinner at Butcher Shop in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; there actually the ambiance is far better then in Mall of Emirates Dubai, as it has a proper feel of a restaurant, bring self contained in its own building : same quality of steaks and other typical South African fare.

All together, it is a steakhouse out of the ordinary and worth a visit.

“Excellent food & rapid service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

We tried the espedata and the Florentina escalope
Both were really fine, particularly the escalope very tender and crunchy at the same time, I wonder how they do it that good

We also tried garden salad which was not bad at all
Generally it's a very good lunch experience with a good service

“Great quality food in the Mall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We always enjoy the Butcher Shop. Popped in for lunch with our family and granddaughter came to. The service was very attentive and nothing is too much for the staff. The menu is great, especially if you are a steak lover and the quality of the cuts of meat are very impressive indeed. The prices on the menu are good for such quality and leaves you wanting to return again and again. I prefer sitting outside at the Dubai Marina Butcher Shop restaurant as a venue but with the temperatures soaring, common sense prevailed. Really worth a visit.

“Not Bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

In the huge Mall of the Emirates sits The Butcher Shop & Grill on the 1st floor very close to the viewing gallery of ski Dubai and the cinema.
Its a shopping mall, so you are unlikely to get top class food. I ordered the rump steak with mushroom sauce, a side salad & corn on the cob. I ordered medium rare, but the steak arrived rare and a bit chewy. The side salad was quite small as was the corn on the cob, I washed this down with a water melon juice. I was intending to have a desert but was full. This cost without tip $ 25, not the cheapest mall food but not bad either.

“A Piece of South Africa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

On my last night in Dubai I chanced on the Butchers Shop on the Walk and had one of the best steaks I have had in years.
I chose a sirloin cooked medium and whilst waiting was given a sampler bowl of woers cuts and a few slices of beef biltong which brought back happy memories. The steak when it arrived was cooked to perfection, the quality, taste and tenderness was as good as it gets with the accompaniments just as good. The service was impeccable with the friendly and efficient waiter ensuring that a takeaway order of beef biltong was ready.
Probably not the cheapest steak in town but well worth the money and no doubt will win on quality anywhere.
