Great Indian food near the intersection of 7 and 23 in GB

Great selection on the menu, excellent food, large portions, good service. The decor is not the strength of this place. The food, ah, the food is easily as good as anything you will get in NY, NJ or eastern MA. A real treasure, right next to the Police Station!

Many times in smaller towns, ethnic food doesn't strive to be great, especially when there is no competition. I went into Aroma for lunch one day and was pleasantly surprised to have my expectation for average Indian lunch surpassed by having a very fine Indian lunch. The quality is on par with many of best Indian restaurants I've eaten at... More

Is Aroma as good as Bombay Grill in Lee? Yes and no. It's different! More traditional India flavor verses the southern India style of Bombay Grill. I prefer the lunch at Aroma, just the right size, quick and priced right. I get the lamb vindaloo, a good garlic nan, and I'm set for the rest of the day.

Will keep this simple: vegetable samosas - tasty; chicken tikka masala - nice, tender chicken (but don't order "spicy," unless you want fire-engine hot); and marinated lamb chops - great.

Went here for dinner tonight and it was great. Very authentic Indian cuisine. Don't be put off by the unkempt appearance of the place.

My wife and I had dinner here a few nights ago. I was pleasantly surprised with the food. Having eaten Indian in NYC and its surroundings I was wondering what a little place in Great Barrington had to offer. I was not displeased. We shared a meat (lamb) samosa appetizer. (2 decent sized samosas) It was crispy and not at... More

Wonderful staff serving delicious authentic Indian food. The atmosphere is relaxing and the décor fits well with the entire experience. We are locals and this is one of our favorite restaurants.

We could not have been more excited about the quality and preparation of the food. It's taste excedes any other in this triangle region [NY, MA, CT] Atmosphere is mundane, service is fine and the food is A+

Being fairly new to the area, we're looking to appease our ethnic food yen. Having already found a great Mediterranean place (Naji ) our quest tonight was for Indian. Based on reviews and on-line menus, we chose to start with Aroma, and quite frankly, we have a winner. We started with Peshwari samosa, which I've never seen before. Delicious! Flaky... More
