Excellent choice wIth out if town visitors

Really enjoyed the meal. Price was reasonable. Lots of stairs to get up to the restaurant even more to get to washroom. Had Korma and Gosht, naan and rice. Very filling and tasty.

This restaurant is overrated on TA...it should be a 3.5-4. The food is good, the garlic naam is fantastic... The service is average and the restaurant is old and tired. What really set me off were the bathrooms...on the evening of our dinner (we got there early) the men's bathroom was the dirties I ever witnessed in a Canadian restaurant.... More

I have been to Aroma about Five times now. It is my favourite Indian food in Toronto. The moment you walk in the aroma of spices and tandoori oven seduce the senses and heighten the appetite. The staff is very friendly and helpful with good suggestions from the menu, the food is authentic, delicious and beautifully presented. The tandoori chicken... More

Being from the UK we have high standards when it comes to curry houses but Aroma did not disappoint. We chose mostly from the 1 & 2* ( useful heat ratings!) offering and everything was nicely spicy without overpowering the taste of the ingredients; salmon, prawn, chicken and goat . Mayans and rice also very tasty.

If you are in the entertainment district in Toronto and love Indian food, this is a great choice! Located on King street near the theatres (upstairs on the 2nd floor) Aroma has all the traditional dishes you want. Our favorites were the Bengan Bartha (eggplant) the butter chicken, the Hirayali chicken and chicken tikka masala. Wine prices are reasonable. Service... More

Came here after a baseball game with my boyfriend, we both love Indian so decided to give this place a try as we walked past. The smell inside was wonderful, and the food absolutely amazing - the best Indian food both of us has ever had! The service however was fairly slow. It was good at first, but I think... More

We were in Toronto for a week visiting from the UK and were missing our curry! So we visited this restaurant but left disappointed. The depth of flavour we are used to when visiting Indian restaurants at home was sadly lacking. The place was somewhat tatty and in need of an injection of both flavour and redecoration.

Went out for dinner on Sunday evening, no one was at the door to direct is to a table. Awkwardly waited for someone to acknowledge us and then we decided to just walk in. Friendly waiter came over offered us water and menu. We went ahead and ordered appetizers and our meals. The apps. came out in a timely manner.... More
