Best Indian buffet downtown!!!!!

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.

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.

Delicious food, reasonable prices, steps from the theatres. Quiet and comfortable room. Very reasonable prices. The waiter was very helpful with our order and made sure we didn't overdo. The food took a while to be prepared, so allow 2 hrs. before curtain time. We enjoyed it so much, we plan to go there every other time we go to... More

There is not much good Indian food where I live, so whenever I get a chance, I get me some Indian food. We went for an early dinner and the place was pretty open, but by pre-theater time of around 7:00 and later, the place starts to pack up. When we got there, the servers were very attentive to our...

We tried this as something different. It was cosy and the staff was very helpful on our first Indian adventure. The sampler platter for an appetizer was generous and we ordered jut one entree. This is not the place for cocktails or fancy drinks but Good food.

So finally after walking past this Resturant for the hundredth time I made it in for some good indian food. I can say top of my head the food was authentic and when you enter the place you don't get bombarded with spices from all corners. Service was excellent and given it was Monday it was packed. Ordered few dishes... More

The food here is very delicious and the atmosphere is very nice. The protein portions aren't huge but the sauces are great. The price is very reasonable as well, went out for dinner here (2 of us) and got an appetizer, salad, 2 dishes and a bottle of wine for $80! I have also order delivery from here and it... More
