The food was also fantastic, I highly recommend the Butter Chicken, Chicken Vandaloo, and accompanied by the garlic nan... More

We eat at a fair number of Indian restaurants, and Aroma had quite a few dishes that were not just the same old thing. Probably the best dish we had was the Kebab Platter, an appetizer with... More

A dear friend and I dined at Aroma in Shirlington for the first time last evening. It was nothing short of a delightful experience. The menu offers a wide range of Indian dishes -- we both had trouble narrowing down our choices. Finally we opted for two vegetarian dishes, and both were extremely satisfying. Probably most impressive was the wait... More

went to Aroma in Shirlington with a group of friends after our favorite Indian was closed. Pleasantly surprised at the quality and prices. The chicken Marsala was outstanding. All other food was very good too.

My husband and I aren't from around here and trip advisored an Indian place nearby because he loves Indian food. I went generic and had the curry chicken but I will tell you my mind was blown. My husband had the chicken tandoori and he quoted it as "just the right amount of sweat." I will definitely be back next... More

We went to this restaurant as part of a wedding reception. All the food was so good. You can't go wrong on anything you pick. I was so full by the end and the calories were so worth it. A place to go in Sherrington

Went one night with friends. The restaurant was not very crowded. The menu is extensive and several offerings can be found, at different heat levels. Very tasty.
