A wonderful meal!

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

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...
