Tony Roma’s Restaurant | Sheikh Zayed Road


Once upon a lazy Saturday, dearest boyfriend realises that he has been sulking for hours with his laptop on until finally decided to go out and do something productive. Coffee shop hopping is the first thing to pop up on our mind.

I’ve been wanting to visit this cute little coffee shop somewhere in DIFC but we end up stopping by at World Trade Center Station where the wander begun. We were strolling from Dubai side which is the opposite of Crowne Plaza. A bit lost and uncertain to where we are heading we found an interesting shortcut tunnel which is an access to cross the huge road of Sheikh Zayed to the other side. It’s like a wee adventure, discovering a shortcut tunnel.

After we reached the end, we are then facing Crown Plaza Hotel, while tiling my head to the left my breath was caught up by the scenic view of the towers piled up on each side of the longest road in Dubai. City lights brlliantly shining and feasts my eyes. Such a wonderful feeling to see this remarkable man made toy-look-a-like .

On our way, we spotted some Indians filming along the side of the road. Being nosy we hang out a bit and suddenly realising that we needed to get food.

So the story ends with food. We went to try out Tony Romas. A steak house diner, same building as Sahara Tower. I have noticed this one many times while passing SZR but have never had the chance to try it until that night. Tony Romas are famous for grills, chicken, steak, seafood and burgers, more of like American diner.

They welcomed us with complimentary chips with salsa dip sauce.

We ordered for one portion of Shrimp Scampi and Roasted garlic and rosemary chicken.

The portions are really big and are of good quality and for that we are solved. It doesn’t require us to order antipasti or dessert. Excellent service as well as the staff being so accommodating. We will definitely go back and will highly recommend this one. The price isn’t too bad as the food is reasonably worth the try.
