Authentic Chinese (If You Know Where To Look)

Service was good, the hostess was friendly and prompt with tea and food. Although the atmosphere is dated, I don't expect much from typical westernized Chinese food. I've been here for the lunch buffet and the food is arguably the best in the region, but the real secret is the menu. If you can read... read more

Not a fan of the type of chinese food prepared here. There are better options available. I look for fresh, favourable, meals and this one does not cut it for me.

We bought dinner early October 2015. Located downtown and no parking on the street where restaurant is functioning. We had to park somewhere else. Fried rice was extremely oily. 2 dishes ordered just ok. Price was above average. Staff was sleepy. We will not go again;

My family like take out from here it is authentic Chinese food and when you enter you will always see oriental people there. The dining room is dated but clean and the service always friendly. The soup is great as is the crispy beef. We also enjoy the sweet and pungent chicken i recommend it for good food and a... More

Ordered a take-out from here in August. I've had some good experiences here before but this visit was lackluster. I didn't check my order til I got home but they had forgotten my chow mein in my order and the fried rice was hard and old rice (probably was sitting around for a few days in the fridge). I ordered... More

This restaurant is located right in the heart of the downtown. Excellent service, pleasant staff, great food served piping hot, and the portions were huge. I will definitely go back.

One of my friends loves Arom's potstickers. On Friday, she goes and take the buffet to eat these potstickers. Under a recommendation, another friend and I took the buffet. The potstickers were good, but it was the only good thing!!! The wonton soup tasted like a bad chicken noodle soup. The other dish were so-so. I will not return to... More

If you are searching for restaurants in Fredericton, you need to lower your expectations. This is not a culinary destination. It is very difficult to score restaurants here; the choices are poor and the tendency is to score high when you have average meal simply because we become accustomed to overpricing and below average quality and service. First the good.... More

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 all their... More
