BB Social Dining is a Dubai home grown restaurant and their approach to Eastern food has been my favourite in Dubai by far. Their new lunch menu delivers the perfect meal served within 45 minutes, ideal for grabbing a delicious and fresh bite with colleagues or friends. The food is fantastic, the service is great and the setting is  with polished but light-hearted service, in a wonderfully contemporary setting. The lunch menu can be tailored to indulge or you can keep it healthy, with their vegan and low carb options.
