This is a great place to eat at in the Entertainment District area of Toronto. The service was quick and the waiter was friendly and helpful. Every dish coming out of the kitchen looked appetizing. We had pakora, chana masala, okra and garlic naan as vegetarian options, all tasty and light without too many oils. They had a nice large... More

I had the chance to eat my lunch there in april and I have to say I am not impressed. It is average in quality and there were not much choice of desserts. In mu opinion, more variety of rice and desserts should be there. Anyway, it was an okay lunch.

Enjoyed pakora followed by chicken tikka masala, butter chicken, nan bread and rice all with a couple of kingfisher beers. Food was very tasty, pakora was enough for the two of us. Nan bread was so good we ordered a second one. Service was pleasant and quite fast. I'll be back the next time I visit Toronto.

Yet again, we came here while visiting Toronto and it didn't disappoint. Friendly staff, great atmosphere, fantastic food at fair prices. The Butter Chicken is amazing and my favourite while it's a toss up between the Butter Chicken and the Goat Masala for my husband. The Tandoori chicken is wonderfully flavored. The service staff is very attentive but respectful of... More

Not a huge restaurant, but we got there before the dinner rush. The menu was very reasonably priced and the food was quite good and flavourful. Would return!

Ideally located at King and John, this is the best Indian lunch buffet in downtown Toronto. The food is fresh, tasteful and this restaurant has great consistency, I am sure the cooks have been there for several years. Great service, excellent price, good flavour.

If you love Indian food, this is a great spot in a good location opposite the TIFF Lightbox on King St. Food and service were excellent and the cost was very good value. Will go there again.

I judge Indian food by how healthy it is and unique dishes, those that I haven't seen elsewhere. Every one of the dishes I've tried at Aroma, including Baingan Bharta (eggplant), Aloo Gobhi (cauliflower and potatoes), Dal (lentils), Chana (chick peas), and their Samosas, have been fresh and light, that is to say not greasy. Your average Indian restaurant serves... More

Came here for the lunch buffet with a large group of co-workers. They have a large selection of classic Indian dishes, lots of naan, salads and great sauces. I ate one too many plates and still wanted more as I was walking out. Good flavor and quality meat.
