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

Eight of us had dinner at Aroma one night and we ordered 8 different dishes. We enjoyed all of them. The restaurant is happy to vary the spiciness of the dishes, unless one had been partially prepared in advance -- e.g., marinated in sauce precluding more individualization. Service was good. Would happily eat there again.

Indian food is our favorite so we try them every where we go and we travel A LOT. Food was good , service and atmosphere were mediocre at best , because of that we would never go back

Our family had dinner here, I always worry because the wife and daughter are lightweights when it comes to hot and spicy, and that is my definition of most Indian food. But here the food is well spiced, the portions are good, the selection at Indian restaurants always varies. There is a good selection and I have never been disappointed.... More

Consistently excellent, Aroma does not disappoint. A simple supper of chicken korma and the always perfect saag paneer, with garlic naan was as superb take-away as it is eating in. I've been to India many times and Aroma takes me back without the 12-hour flight. The dated decor is easily offset with fine service and very good food. Easily the... More
