Best Thai food in Howard County, Maryland -- Excellent service and spiced to perfection! Nice atmosphere, but casual.

We have been to Thailand many times and always try Thai food when out and about. This week, we were in Ellicott City and stopped by for lunch at Thai Aroma. We had satay and Padang curry. We asked for medium hot and did not need to add condiments from the spice tray. We will be back!

Last night I went to Thai Aroma with my parents. I was worried that I wouldn't like the food because they have a lot of seafood (which I cannot stand). The service was pretty fast and everything came out nice and hot. We ate Spring Rolls, Chicken Satay, Drunken Noodles, Pad Thai, and Thai Noodle Soup. The food was a... More

We found this restaurant via Trip Advisor, Yelp etc. We wanted a good Thai restaurant. As we drove up, I was doubtful (its in a big parking lot next to an tire/oil change place with darken/mirrored windors). I definitely would not have gone in looking at the entrance --- SO GLAD I DID. The decor inside is beautiful. Relaxed for... More

Loved everything. Pad Thai, pad Woonsen and Larb. Tasty, exotic and filling. Drive over an hour to get here and love it. Stop at the Asian bakery next door or the Asian grocery across the parking lot.

My husband and have travelled the eastern and western coasts frequently enough to know that very few Thai restaurants compare to the high standard of quality we have been privileged to enjoy at Thai Aroma.

The staff was very friendly, the food was good. I had drunken chicken....love the basil! Hubby had calamari and fried rice...which he liked. He is not a Thai fan but would go back with me. We had lunch size portions which was just enough (ok I was full). I have posted pictures. I would go back.

Love the pad Thai and the panang curry. However the curry isn't always as consistent as I would like. Still suggest take out due to the tire smell but staff is friendly and prompt.
