Tony Roma’s is American fare in large portions, swimming in grease Reviews

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011

Tony Roma’s is American fare, served in large portions, swimming in grease, and tries to channel Americana in the middle of a mall. The Ibn Battuta mall outlet has a slightly tired air to its leather banquettes and dog-eared menus. Starters are voluminous – think buffalo chicken bites, onion rings and plenty more deep-fried concoctions. Mains stick to steaks, burgers and fried fish, with a small nod to salads, and all come with a choice of two side dishes. There are plenty of sharing options and meal deals – you can mix and match between various surf n’ turf options to satisfy your inner glutton quite easily. Steaks come in various weights, cooked to order and are satisfyingly chunky for a restaurant of this standard, although the garlic green beans were tasteless and undercooked. Perhaps it’s best to avoid all attempts at healthy eating here. No American restaurant would be complete without gluttonous deserts – from cheesecake to brownies and ice cream, all of which, like the mains, don’t come only in large thankfully.

For me this is the top restaurant, reasonably priced food, with many healthy and post-workout options especially around the grilled chicken, fish and beef steak. I go there with friends and with family sometimes, mostly for dinner, and the quality/taste/service is very consistent. I don't mind having a lunch or dinner meal daily from them, and I have just ordered a home delivery request few minutes ago! Ibrahim

Visited the Ibn Batuta Mall branch for lunch last Friday. Had a 450gm beef short rib with mashed potato and diet coke. The in-house secret sauce which was kept separately in a bowl, is too sweet and acidic for my liking . On my request, it was prepared with another sauce. This was a single piece of rib and I'm not sure if it weighed that much. It was nice and meaty but also had blobs of fat and other tissue. At Dhs 69 a piece, it is fairly priced. The coke cost Dh 11 and could be refilled once.
