Truly Authentic Chinese Food

I've been to Arom a few times, because my girlfriend is a huge fan. I'm a bit picky when it comes to eating out. However, I always enjoy new dishes I try here. I also have a fairly sensitive stomach and was worried about MSG, but was informed by the waitress that they started using new sauces and... read more

Arom has a pretty wide menu, so I asked the lady on the phone what she'd recommend. She was very friendly and suggested the black bean beef and the szechuan chicken. I got both with a side order of rice. I loved them! I mean, I like chicken balls and the like, but this was a different kind of Chinese... More

It was Saturday night when my husband and I visited Arom and no other visitors except us. So I was starting worried that the food would not be good. All my worries were broken down after I taste my order "Sour & Spicy Soup, and Seafood fried rice!. Ooohhhh...the sour & spicy soup is soooo good, has the balance taste... More

I am very sensitive to MSG. The waiter was kind enough to be honest with me that most of their food contains MSG. The only food that one can order here without MSG, are dishes that do not contain bottled sauces. Since many of their dishes contain soy sauce, and their soy sauce has MSG, your choices are limited. Soy... More

Just love everything here. noodles, veggies, meat. As long as it is from the Chinese Menu, it is a safe and exciting choice.

Since returning from my study abroad trip in Shanghai, I've had a really hard time finding authentic Chinese food. However, Arom has some really great traditional, and "Canadian-Chinese" options. This is great, because I can even bring my less adventurous friends out to eat and we'll both enjoy. I've been to the restaurant numerous times, and am always satisfied. I... More

Most of Fredericton's Chinese restaurants serve a depressing menu of American inventions like chicken balls with red dye cherry sauce, sweet & sour whatever, General Tsao, Soo Guy. Arom does too, if that's what you want, but please try some of their more authentic stuff: Jao-Tzu (pot stickers), rice noodles in curried sauce, Szechwan beef, sweet & pungent pork...yummy! Take...

I was not impressed and on top they could not give me an acceptable receipt for business expense purposes.

Good price and they got a new air conditioning system. I love the food here and love to see nice people to serve. I tried traditional Chinese food here and they are amazing. I will definitely go back to try more.
