I must say we come in here probably every couple of months and there is a lot of choice the food is always cooked throughout and hot. I would definitely recommend the only down thing I would say it's the service they can be a bit slow with taking plates away and ordering drinks. Overall will be coming back.

We've had numerous birthday meals at the Aroma as it was always our son's favourite place to eat. There is a large selection of food and both the father-in-law and daughter love taking food up to the chef to be cooked in front of them. There is a real mixture of food and a very large restaurant which always has... More

We have eaten at this restaurant as a couple and with immediate family, on a number of occasions during the past year. On each occasion it has been enjoyable and good value but has occasionally been a little "frayed round the edges". (e.g. cold plates etc) For this years major annual family gathering (20+ people) we decided see how the... More

My self and friends used to be regulars at this resturant and although we had heard evening opening was now a waste of money we didn't think they could go too wrong at lunchtime. How wrong we were!! The food was far from edible with obvious cheap cuts of meat ie; mostly bone in serving plates to rummage through for... More

Aroma has really improved over the last few months after going through a dodgy time. Great choice of international dishes available at lunch and dinner sessions and staff were very friendly. Not a place to choose for a quiet romantic date - but when you want good, fast food it is worth a visit.

This place has definitely gone down hill over the last twelve months. Possibly due to new management? Never the less there is far less choice, less main dishes. The soft drinks(coke/fanta etc) are out of a big bottle and are served warm with ice. Tepanyaki grill was closed and this is one of the main reasons we visit Aroma. Can... More

Lovely place to visit especially for larger groups as there is plenty of space . Food good but i didntfind my favourite chicken dish last time we went as they must change the menu at times . My grandchildren love it there for the variety.

Excellent choice of buffet food, a wide range of not only Chinese but other food for the less adventurous diner. This is my boy's favourite restaurant and he always goes for the noodles and chocolate fountain! (not at the same time, lol) Food good value for money but drinks can be a bit pricey.

Went here as the restaurant was close to our hotel and, even though it was rather expensive, we thought that you can't go wrong with a buffet. However, we wished we hadn't bothered. We got there at around 6pm and found that most of the food had been sitting out for a while and was tasteless and, in the case... More
