Absolutely delicious!

I had dinner here three nights in a row! It's a small, family-run place with seriously delicious curries and fresh naan. Definitely recommend the prawn curry! The vibe is very relaxed.

Great little restaurant. The father, mother, and son work the restaurant. They will be happy to chat with you about travelling or about anything else. They cook the food themselves while you wait. The only downside is that if they are busy you will have to wait, as all food is freshly prepared and they have a small kitchen. Also... More

7 of us came here for dinner and it was way better than we hoped, a complete tiny gem and fantastic find! From the start, they did all they could to accommodate us, seating us out the back in the small garden. The staff (a mother, father and son) could not be more welcoming and helpful to all our requests... More

Very good food in a small but lovely backyard setting. Since the place has a tiny kitchen it might take some time to prepare your meal if the restaurant is full of guests, but is worth the wait.

We went there several times and always had great meals. The staff always offered some extra rice, mango chutney, etc free of charge which was unnecessary since the portions were big enough but still nice touch.

Do not order the pumpkin soup. Its a disgusting mix of water and grated pumpkin. On pointing this out, the owner wasn't quite rude and I'm sure we are going to be charged for this crap. This absolute disregard for its patrons is downright horrible and doesn't speak very much for this place.

we liked the look of this place and went in for dinner, after ordering drinks, we noticed they served shark and decided to go elsewhere. Please when in Hikkaduwa try to use the places that dont serve shark, its endangered as it is and there is so much other delicious food available there!

Aroma is a cute, nicely furnished little restaurant. However, the noise from the Galle Road is disturbing, but this applies to everywhere else on the main road. Our food was OK - just about, but certainly not good enough to warrant a return visit. My chicken curry was almost tasteless, the dahl curry ditto. To be fair, the aubergine and... More
