“Another pleasant meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

It was our granddaughter's 18th birthday and six of us went to Aroma's for a low key meal out. The food, as usual, was hot and fresh. We had a varied assortment between us. I did my usual of starting with soups: chicken and sweetcorn, followed by sweet and sour. Then a platter of standard starters followed by, believe it or not, an excellent spicy lamb curry. It was so good, four of us ended up having it. My wife, who normally has a poor appetite, surprised herself by tucking into various seafood offerings and thoroughly enjoying it.
As it was the Christmas menu, the meals cost slightly more than normal at £14.50 but six of us ate well for just about £100.

Visited this Chinese buffet restaurant for a convenient place to eat. It basically does what it says on the tin. No frills eatery.

“Food poisoning paradise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Absolutely terrible. Took family here 6 hours later the grim food poisoning kicked in! Avoid! The food was very basic your better off staying in and ordering a takeaway from a reliable Chinese not this!
