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.

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.

I arrived in Fredericton on Saturday, June 22, 2013 and the waitress remembered me from last year! The meal came in order and my glass was always topped up with ice water. The dining environment was nice and the background music was relaxing. The quality of the food was high and the price was very reasonable. I would go back... More

I was very excited when I first ran across the good reviews of this restaurant last fall. I had been a great fan in the days when it was run by Mei. Unfortunately, after four visits in six months I give up. The first meal was good, the eggplant was actually delicious, the sze-jill Beef was OK but soupy. Since... More

Within a month I visited this restaurant three times and wasn't disappointed once. It's easy to get a seat and the servers are friendly. More importantly the food is delicious! The menu is varied and the kitchen is amenable to "hold the" requests, including "hold the MSG." The washrooms are pretty cold in the winter; however, this minor inconveniences is... More
