Five Star Kitchen fans slammed the judges’ decision as Dom was crowned the winner during Friday’s final, claiming that Jordan was ‘robbed.’
In the episode, contestant’s Jordan, Dom and Adria each had the opportunity to run the Palm Court for one night.
The trio were tasked with impressing 50 guests at the restaurant and judges Ravneet Gill, Michel Roux and Mike Reid, in what was their last chance to put their name on the door.
Adria was up first but soon began running behind with one table leaving before the desserts were served.
Dom also went gone over the two and half hour service time and his vegan ice cream failed to set correctly.

Five Star Kitchen follows contestants as they try to wow a panel of judges including Ravneet Gill, Michel Roux and Mike Reid with outrageously expensive dishes.
Last night’s episode held a £21,000 taco from Mexico and a £1,700 pizza from New York as examples of the ‘pure luxury’ the competitors should strive to achieve.
But viewers watching at home slammed the show on Twitter, calling it ‘out of touch’ in the wake of the cost of living crisis.
As the second episode of the show opened last night, the judges encouraged the contestants to use expensive ingredients in order to market their food to upper crust diners with cash to spare.
‘Today is all about money,’ pastry chef and restaurant consultant Ravneet Gill said.
‘Luxury hotels like this are playground for the rich and famous. To them, money is no object,’ she added.
The chef added that contestants had to use the ‘finest ingredients that money can buy’ in order to attract ‘diners who just want to splurge and create buzz around their menus.’
Global restaurateur Mike Reid explained that the contestants had to find that one dish that ‘showcases pure luxury,’ to set themselves apart from other restaurants.
‘Think the 24 carat pizza from New York, costing just under £2,000,’ he said, referencing Industry Kitchen’s £1,700 pizza, which was inspired by Wall Street and is topped with gold leaves.
‘Up to the Grand Velas taco from Mexico, which is wrapped in a gold infused tortilla,’ he said, about the delicacy served at the Grand Velas Los Cabos resort for the super rich.
The taco, which is made of a gold-infused tortilla and topped with gold leaf, is thought to be the most expensive taco in the world.
During the episode, contestants tried to come up with the most outrageously expensive dishes they could think of.
One restaurateur told the judges she hoped to charge customer £2,500 for a ceviche with caviar out of the tin, served on an ice sculpture of a mermaid.
Meanwhile, a chef called Jordan had the judges scoffing when he revealed he hoped to sell a yellowfin tuna blue corn taco for an eye-watering £500.
