Now, its very rare to find a restaurant that gives good food and good service that does not hurt your budget. Having said that, I would like to highlight an exceptional service and food that me and my husband had in Mbco. The food was great tasting fresh and the generous portion of the food was awesome! (The humongous "Lamb Burger" was fantastic!) But what made this dining experience even more remarkable was the service that the staff and the Manager gave to us. From welcoming us until we left the place, we were treated like "King and Queen" inside the restaurant! And it was noty only for us, but I observed that most of the guest are happy being visited and checked back by the staff and the manager. For a busy restaurant and seeing few staff running the floor, the Manager was even the one cleaning the tables and serving food, which is really surprising and commendable.
Kudos to this team!!! We are looking forward to have another great experience in this restaurant. Surely we will reccomend this to our friends, colleagues and family!

Me & my friends enjoyed the lunch. We love the foods, the variety on the menus means that you are never bored , and the service was great! The servers know the foods they are offering up.
Great food & great service.
Wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend this to everyone.

I will never dine in this restaurant all of my life.I invited 7 people yesterday for lunch at MBco in Dubai Mall, first of all I asked the assistant manager for table of 7, he offered me a big table of 4 and small one for 2. I told him they are not matched in size and have different levels. He insisted that he can not move the tables although they are near to each other. Then I told him that if he did not attend my request I would leave the restaurant. So, the Egyptian manager came to sort the problem.
Secondly, The food took around 45 minutes although the restaurant was not full. To make the matters worse, the food they brought was not as we asked for; we ordered well done steak and they brought completely otherwise.
When I reported this to the assistant manager, he did not take any action as well as his Egyptian manager.
All and all, poor service and bad food

I love this place - the manager is almost always there, and seems to take people's reactions to the food very personally (that is a good thing).
The food, I have found, can be hit and miss. I prefer to stick to the basics such as the chicked and brie wrap - absolutely delicious, and served with a beautiful aioli which really completes it. Is it worth the money (about 40 something AED)? I would say yes, on occasion. The more exotic sandwiches, such as the seared tuna one are, I think, a bit too 'specialist' to carry off. Overall though, I really haven't found a better sandwich yet in Dubai. I do still crave a good old 5AED sausage bap or something similarly homely, which I have yet to find here - hint hint MBCO!
The muffins are one to steer clear of - very dry, and I gave up half way through (probably a good thing!). The other desserts though, look and taste lovely.
I do get slightly irritated that every time I go, I seem to be held up by a mother questioning the origin of every single ingredient on every item for her precious young - it seems to me that the place has become a bit of a Mummy-Hangout. Shame for anyone without kids, but the great service staff do try to keep the queue moving as much as possible despite such 'long' orders.
All in all, I like this place. The manager keeps a tight reign on the junior chefs, as should be the case, resulting in well turned out food.
