Mall of the Emirates – Looking around for a place to have a sit down meal, we noticed Tribes – tucked away in a corner. It is a traditional African themed restaurant. I could tell from the menu that we were going to experience some real flavours from the mother land. Welcomed by ladies dressed in traditional African clothes, we were lead to our table and seated. I was very impressed by the decor, seating and the menus. The smells from the kitchen were really good and I couldn’t wait to eat.
The entertainment was great too. This was taken during a birthday song performance. Among many other classic African beats, they played the infamous “waka waka” by Shakira – using traditional drums, the vuvuzela and a few other instruments.
For my main, I went with the Moroccan Chicken and let me tell you – it was juicy and tender with so much flavour. It was really good – best mash ever. It reminded me of my mother and stepfather’s cooking. Amraj wasn’t too keen on his main course.
Overall I had a great time – a true African feel. The service was quick and efficient. The staff were fun and friendly. The menu prices were reasonable. The seating arrangement was really comfortable and I enjoyed my food.
It was my best dine out experience in the UAE by far and I can’t wait to go back to try out the rest of the menu! – the malva pudding needs testing!
I am not much of a food blogger but I would like to add this to Dhillondeeds, let me know if you enjoyed this little review.
