Aroma is a popular Chinese buffet style restaurant located in the centre of Hemel Hempstead on the second floor in the Riverside shopping centre, overlooking TK Max and Pizza Express.
If you are seeking a quiet night out at a white linen Chinese restaurant with attractive décor and think you have discovered an inexpensive option, then look elsewhere, this is not for you.
Aroma provides a no frills, canteen style, all you can eat, great value for money buffet. The large open plan dining area has adequate wipe-over tabled seating and therefore there is no need to book. Upon arrival staff seat you at a table and serve your drinks order, and unless you wish to have additional drinks, the rest is down to you to serve yourself starters, mains and deserts for the duration of your dining experience.
There is a variety of dishes to chose from, to please both adults and children, therefore this is absolutely ideal for young families and meeting friends, with children enjoying helping themselves and trying different foods. This is an inexpensive way to eat well which is exactly why the restaurant is usually busy with families in the early evening when alternative dining options are quiet and empty. The Aroma buffet does exactly what is says on the tin! Give it a go.
