“Never again”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Eaten here many times over the years and the food was once good but has got worse as times get harder. Last time I ate here I said never again but went back tonight with a group and it was not good. Who deep fries crab sticks in batter and serves luke warm stewed dishes with very poor ingredients? Stay at home and order a Chinese or Indian take away you will be much more satisfied.

“Excellent choice at a reasonable price”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Visited Aroma with six friends. Everyone was very pleased with the quality and variety of Indian and Chinese buffet food - starter, main course and sweet - as much as you like. No complaints about any aspect of the food, service, value for money - will definitely go again.

Lots of reheated slop that all tastes vert similar and a hell of a lot of deep fried food. worst buffet i have ever been to. Service was good but food is bad. Had better microwave meals. 16,95 each + drinks. Avoid.

“Good in parts”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Four of us being hotel guests thought we would try out the eat as much as like asian buffet mainly Chinese and Indian.
Reasonably authentic and some dishes better than others.Curries were fair ,the chilli oil was sensationally hot, banana fritters were freshly cooked and delicious but much of the buffet suffered from being reheated which was not surprising as we were eating on a Sunday night when the hotel was very quiet . Including beer- the local okells brew -our share of the bill came to just over £39. Service was friendly and helpful in this downstairs breakfast room. Possibly it would be better if fewer dishes were offered thus enabling fresher better quality to be offered.
