Repeat guest. Our party had the fried rice with chicken - large portion, delicious; Spicy Salmon, Hamachi and Tuna rolls. Always delicious, nicely arranged. Waitress was very attentive. Visited with family, business and with teen children before. Half price sushi.

When we arrived, I told our Asian waitress that we are vegan and to please stop me if I order anything that is prepared with eggs, cheese, dairy, etc. and she said ok and she would check with the kitchen and came back and ensured us that an app we had ordered wasn't made with any "meat products".... She proceeded... More

We really enjoyed our meal. But there were almost too many, elaborate choices. Things that I don't really consider "classic" sushi. That being said, it was very tasty. Really liked the edami, rather than just salting it - they had a couple of sauce choices that really added some zest. Now to the half price thing. I work in marketing... More

We went to this restaurant for the sushi, not only we were surprised by the half price, but also by the quality. The waitress was so nice, splitting our salad plates, she really went the extra mile. The sushi, goat cheese salad, and surprisingly the guacamole was delish. You should for sure try this place :)

We went on a Thursday night for happy hour had 2 great IPA beers, our waiter " I wish I could think of his name" was great! The lettuce wraps were tasty. The Volcano sushi was the best thing all night. Our service was fast and we made our movie that night during dinner rush!

We are big sushi eaters and have sampled sushi all over the US and internationally. Cincinnati offers a variety of sushi options but what we like about Aroma is its interesting combinations. They have some very imaginative sushi - goat cheese salad and blueberry topped sushi to name just two. Well-prepared and efficiently delivered. My only other observation is that... More

We have been going to Aroma's since it opened and love the sushi, but tonight we had a horrible incident with the staff and it will be a very long time before we try this place again. We have NEVER paid full price for sushi there whether we order from the main menu or the specials, but tonight we were... More

This place used to be a favorite. Now it seems like the management and staff just don't care anymore. The service is bad, the food average (i can get the same sushi at Kroger) and way overpriced. Would not have gone if it wasn't for the groupon. Not likely to return, which is unfortunate because their food used be great.
