Sometimes very poor service.

We have eaten here at least 10 times over the past year. The service tends to be ambivalent at best, very slow at worst. The woman who runs the place rarely smiles or makes us feel like she is happy we are there. Our food was served cold this evening and our male server never returned for more than... read more

Popular place on Sunday night. Good assortment. Service was focused on regulars but when we waved them down we got adequate service.

Always a wonderful experience when in this area. Kid friendly, and wonderful, polite, no attitude waiters. Food is always cooked as requested. Took the family for sunday brunch.

We were excited to find our favorite soup Rasam on the menu. The vindaloo was delicious and spicy. The service was expedient, we would eat there again.

We found Aroma (along with Bombay in Lee) to be one of the best Indian restaurants in the area. It's family run and the couple who manage cooking and serving clearly are dedicated to making certain that their customers are well taken care of and leave happy.

Aroma is consistently very good. I have been driving the hour down to Great Barrington for years for their delicious food with fresh ingredients and great flavor and it is absolutely worth it. I love their nans, rices and chicken dishes. I am sensitive to spices and they always manage to make dishes that have intense flavors without tongue searing... More

.Our friends, who are locals and have visited this retaurant in the past, took us here for lunch. We were a party of 9, including 5 kids ages 7-17 Usually when you are travelling, you tend to keep to the kind of foods that you are sure your kids will eat, like pasta or bugers. But the children were open... More

We were attending a festival, but wanted to get away. On a Saturday, we picked Aroma because it was close. We explained to the owner we needed to get done, and we finished 10 minutes earlier than we hoped. The best part was the food was excellent. We tried 2 types of the bread - plain and spinach. We had... More

We had a lovely dinner at Aroma. The soups were exceptional, particularly the mulligatawny. The appetizers were good, but not as fabulous as the soups. The main dishes were very good and, yes, the vindaloo was really spicy. The Indian ice cream for dessert was excellent. This is a family owned restaurant, and the owner's children, who help out, add... More

I usually dread going to ethnic restaurants in rural areas far from NYC, but was pleasantly surprised by Aroma. When I lived in NY I went to the best Indian restaurants on Curry Hill/Lexington or in Queens. So I have a frame of reference. Will definitely return. Warning the vindaloos are even too hot for ME!
