About 7 years ago this restaurant was good, good quality food, good value for money. Year by year it deteriored. Now it's a rip off. We paid more than 30 pounds for a meal for two during the week, most of the food was cold or there was nothing left. Dirty food trays were left there in the warmers with... More

Had takeaway from here where for £5.50 you get to fill a usual takeaway tub. Whilst there appears to be a large selection of food on offer, when you look closer allot of it is dry after being sat on hot plate for hours on end, any of the meat dishes seemed to be more fat than meat. My main... More

Looks like a school canteen . Very very expensive . The food is tasteless literally and the puddings old and dry . Wouldn't visit again . They also refuse you glass of tap water . You have to pay for a glass with is ridiculous as they just use the tap anyway ! Never again

Sitting at our table in Aroma as I type this (it's that kind of a place!) I can only agree that standards have dropped somewhat. It's still pretty OK though. Yes, there are too many deep fried bits which look bought in from Iceland, and the crispy duck is just wrong (note to chef: please check out the differences between... More

So my best friend and I went here because our usual was closed. It appeared to look nice but the good was awful. I am a fan of duck pancakes - they had shredded pork as a cheaper alternative. All food was bland and mushy, no real taste. The restaurant had no Chinese workers like a normal Chinese would. They... More

I usually like a cheap meal but here things have gone down slightly, the fresh food they used to serve has gone and a lot of it ordered from Iceland. The choices are now limited

The salt n pepper prawns were the best i have... More
