'WE GOT this' was Helena and Vikki's mantra tonight on My Kitchen Rules, and they delivered.

The twin sisters served up their Greek heritage with a modern twist in their instant restaurant Didima.

"I didn't really like this dish, I loved it," said judge Pete Evans.

"Sensational dish ladies, you just absolutely blew me away. That was exactly what I'm looking for in this competition.

"I could eat that brekky, lunch and dinner."

Helena and Vikki were rewarded with two perfect scores of 10 from the judges for their melt-in-the-mouth squid.

The bubbly sisters were confident in the kitchen, taking advantage of their "twin" advantage.

They didn't seem overly concerned about the varying sizes of the pieces of Hapuku fish they served in their main and the saltiness of their olive sauce.

While Evans loved the dish, fellow judge Manu Feildel didn't feel the same.

"Yes I love the combination of flavours there, but my fish is completely overcooked, like dry overcooked," he said.

"And on top of it, I just got a stone of olive that I chewed on and it hurts."

The pressure was on to do justice to their grandmother's cake recipe, which has been in their family for four generations.

Feildel picked up on the issues they had in the kitchen with the cake and not being able to source Clementines.

 "A sponge semolina cake can be quite boring at times, but you've made a fantastic dessert," he said.

"It's light, it's spongy, it's fluffy…  I think you've done a really simple, beautiful dessert."

Evans called it a restaurant quality looking dish.

"This dish is equally as good as the first and the second," he said.

"You focused on a few main ingredients tonight and you've treated them all with respect."

After another perfect score of 10 from Evans for their dessert, the sisters reached a grand total score of 85, the equal highest instant restaurant score in the show's history.

They assured the judges they can cook other types of food, not just Greek cuisine.

South Australia's married couple Deb and Rick has a big score to beat in their instant restaurant tomorrow night.

My Kitchen Rules will air tomorrow at 7.30pm on Channel 7.
