Review

We LOVED Tony Roma's so much as kids, we used to eat there so often. But somewhere down the line, so many new outlets opened up or health factors kicked in and Tony Roma's was somehow forgotten. So, when we got an opportunity to check out their branch in IBN Battuta Mall, we were kind of nostalgically happy about it! We made our way there on a weekday afternoon and were quite impressed with the turnout of people already there. One sweet member from the staff then sat us at our table and handed us their menu along with the new "Savour The Flavour" section! 

Food

We started off with some appetisers and some drinks. 

Boneless Chicken Bites:

These we like lil chicken nuggets, drenched in buffalo sauce, and served with a ranch dressing. They were SOOO good. One of our favourite dishes on the table. The portions are big so it makes sense to share, though beware; you would not want to share them! 
Kickin' Shrimp:

The description said fried shrimps in a spicy cream sauce and we got just that! We really appreciated that they were not trying to ape the dynamite shrimps from CPK or PF Changs, but did their own version of it. It was one of the best tasting shrimps I have had in  a very long time! Again, a very shareable portion.
Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Chicken:

Two grilled chicken breasts, smothered with roasted garlic and rosemary BBQ sauce, sprinkled with parmesan and we got ours with a side of stir-fried broccoli and loaded mashed potato. Heavenly is the right objective for this dish! The chicken was beaten thin but still remained succulent and juicy and full of flavour! The side of broccoli although a bit oily, was very appetising because of the garlic toss maybe and the loaded mash is definitely the only way to go herewith! 
Bountiful Beef Ribs & Fillet Medallions:

OMG the portions! This one was hugeeee, with two giant beef ribs and two medallions glazed with a demi glace sauce! The ribs were almost falling off the bone and tasted delicious! The medallions however were a bit overdone we felt, but the sticky and sweet glaze made up for it! We got a side of fries and shredded corn that came with a knob of butter on top! Extremely NOM. It was one of those perfect game day meals! Definitely a must try..
