“Good quality steak”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

The steak was really high equality. We had the portahouse and the fillet. Both were really good though the fillet was raw after we ordered medium. After sending it back twice, I settled on a rarish fillet. The prawns was a little disappointing.

“Love the boerewors”

Always eat here when I get the chance and thankfully the Butchers has expanded from Santon Mall to various locales in the Middle East.

“Excellent Steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

If searching for a super steak meal while visiting the Mall of the Emirates then make your way to this venue, its in the Food Court near the Ski Slope.
That said its the location that is the only down side. It's situated at the end of the open Food Court so there is no ambiance and it is noisy.
Avoid Friday evenings as it is manic but the staff do their best to make your visit comfortable and satisfying.
As for the food, well no complaints, super menu and lots of advice on the many cuts of beef available. A rare to medium fillet was probably the best I have ever had it was just delicious. The down side is that the whole meal cried out for a fruity Merlot red wine but because this is the UAE and the venue not hotel based there is no alcohol.!!!
But still highly recommended.

“Great gone to bad pulled up to avarage”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

When this place first opened it was absolutely superb! The staff were from SA, as was the meat, these guys could do no wrong by me, then the usual Dubaiification happened, less and less SA staff, more and more South Asian staff who did not really know what the flavors should be, friendly yes, efficient yes but not perfect as before, as for the food, well they moved from SA beef to USDA beef, the difference in taste is astronomical, and they even still have the cheek to charge the same price, I went recently and noticed that the menu has also changed names (another Dubaiification) we went from Giant Beef Kebab to Espitata and several other things, the place is usually full so I assume there is a clientele, but truly a place that started off great, went to almost zero and has only recently pulled up one sock.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

Great steak at a pretty fair price, a taste of South Africa in a shopping mall, for obvious reasons all that is lacking is the range of re denies I would normally have to accompany it.
