The Sunday lunch buffet had excellent selection. The lamb curry was a stand out. There were only a few vegetarian options. Service was low-key.

Visited this restaurant quite a few times- regular menu is consistently very good- the buffet was just as good. A nice selection - there could have been a few more appetizers available, but overall it was great. Service is always polite and fast.

Really, the low-key exterior of Aroma belies the excellent care - both in cuisine and service - that this family-owned restaurant offers guests. I am in the area every month and try to eat in, or take out from Aroma regularly. I have tried so many dishes, they're all delicious. The cost is very reasonable which is rare to find... More

Vegetarian options and so many other choices as well. Variety of bread selection and wine as well. Aroma flavors and generous portions with attentive service. Great value in prices as well

We stopped here for a Sunday lunch on the recommendation of some friends. There was a lunch buffet so we went with it because minus a basic curry my kids have never had Indian food before. The food was great and my kids all found a few dishes they loved. The staff was friendly but would go from inattentive to... More

The food was spectacular, although the service left something to be desired. We told the server at the outset that we had to get to the theatre, so time was of the essence, but oddly he seemed to ignore this request despite several reminders, and it took longer than expected to complete our meal.

Though the exterior is a bit shabby, the food, service, and ambience are superior. We had the rice dish with meat, fish, and vegetables, and it was delicious. A great Indian restaurant.

On one hand, this is far from great Indian cuisine. On the other hand, everything is clean, parking is easy, and the family that runs it is very hospitable and efficient. For some reason, the lamb dishes are best.

We had a very good dinner here. The food was fresh and very tasty. Each dish had its own spice blend, so sharing made the meal even better.

We had a memorable Sunday meal at Aroma. For an appetizer we chose the meat samosas. A serving of two in a crispy buttery crust. The nan was served with the main meal which included a large serving of basmati rice. We chose a chicken and a lamb dish, each were smothered in their signature sauces, one was curry, the... More
