...I had decided that, having read the reviews I was having the Twenty10 burger and the sticky toffee pudding. When I thought about all the TripAdvisor reviews the one thing I would have appreciated in relation to the burger was that...it comes without a bun! Call me naive - even for a very expensive burger - I just assumed it would be in a roll! I have attached a photo so you can see for yourself what comes. It was good, but not really a burger, so a little disappointing. Not so the sticky toffee pudding, which was awesome. In saying all that, the ambience at the restaurant was excellent, the waiters were attentive, polite, but not overbearing, and we had a very positive experience.

Rhodes Twenty 10 is a good restaurant with friendly staff, an inventive wine list and reasonable prices. The quality of products served is superior although I found the menu rather uninspiring. If you're the type of person that considers steak houses when you want to treat yourself and your company to a fine meal chances are you are of Anglosaxon or American descent, in which case you're at the right address. If you like your English breakfasts with mushrooms and grilled tomatoes you'll feel well at home because that's exactly the type of side dish you're gonna get, not to mention the onion rings. To be a Michelin starred chef and serve battered onion rings tells a lot about your lack of imagination as a chef and about the underdeveloped culinary desires of the clientele you're trying to seduce. This is solid, average Joe food, no less and - definitely - no more. How it ends up at the top of Tripadvisors Dubair resto list is anyone's guess. Late top 50 would be more appropriate.

After reading the reviews, before our Dubai holiday, i was not going to miss the opportunity to visit Twenty10 and see for myself.
I will try not to overdo use of too many superlatives, but it will be difficult.

Arrival.
Offered the choice of Twenty10 bar or the one next door, so the one next door it was, (sorry, the name escapes me ), but it was very very good, with a couple of beers and a bottle of Red, which we were advised could follow us into the restaurant was a great start.
Shown to our table and introduced to our waiter was equally smooth and friendly.

Starters.
King Prawn and Scallop skewers.
I fancy myself as a bit of a chef, but this starter and the meal as a whole only served to highlight what a shambles of a cook i am, as the scallops were of the the type and quality i have never cooked nor previously tasted.
Not really being a massive Prawn fan, i was quickly converted to the opposite....so large, chunky and full of flavour.
Crab with new poatoes and Quail eggs.
All eggs should taste like this, and the poatoes and Crab were equally flavoursome.

Wifes main course.
Fillet Steak......wifes choice....had the feel of eating butter as the texture and feel was just as though the steak absolutely melted in my mouth....beautiful taste and cooked to perfection.

My choice. Following the trend of TA reviews, i just had to try the Twenty10 Fillet burger.
This would not be my normal kind of choice, in such a restaurant....a Burger !!!!!!. but a minced fillet, sat on a bed of mash, with a slab of Foie Gras on top was an absolute attack on the taste senses.....it was spectacular.

Following this we perused the Desert list but although i fancied something light and with a citrus twist, a la, torte or Key Lime to refesh, but there only puddings and Brownies, so i declined, but when booking i mentioned it was a meal to celebrate my birthday, therefore i was presented with the desert as per the above earlier posted photograph of two chocolate sponge items and the two jellied accomapniments.

Wow, yet another attack on the taste buds, the chocolate muffin was bitten to be followed by an avalanche of warm smooth dark choclate inner which had an explosive effect.
The jellied items were only around the same size of an Opal Fruit, ( for ther older ones amongst you ha ha ), sat on a base of fine white chocolate, with a Mango jelly....OMG.

Abottle of Red, a couple of beers, and a wonderful meal to rival any other meal i have ever had for £110........an absolute bargain.

As i said earlier i fancy myself as a bit of a chef, but having enjoyed food on a different level, i now appreciate how many hours / days / months that must go into experimenting and perfecting food prepared and served to the highest degree....it is in fact an art form, and a fabulous attack on the senses......if you are in Dubai.....please treat yourself.

Enjoy.
