We've been to this restaurant several times now and never been disappointed. The service was good and the waitress explained to us many of the different dishes that we were not familiar with.

I liked that there are many vegetarian options as I am not a meat eater. The pakoras were very good as well as the Chada Masala and the Naan bread was fresh and very yummy!! This could become another go-to restaurant for us, in the Tri Cities area!

Really the best Indian food and we've tried most of their competition. Prices are reasonable but you'll get more bang for your buck of you take out as opposed to eating in, portion size will more than double.

We had just done a hike in the Buntzen Lake area and looked online to see if we could eat at a great restaurant in Port Moody. So, we looked up restaurants on trip advisor and Aroma Indian restaurant came up with 38 reviews and a 4.5 out of 5. Can't lose right? wrong.

The food was average at best. Ordered malai Kofta and Chicken Korma. We were asked how spicy and we said mild to medium. Mine came out with no spice at all and the korma came out so hot it burned both our mouths couldn't even taste the flavour. The actual koftas were total mush, barely kept their shape and not too much on the flavour side. It was very average. Nowhere near the amazing quality that we expected after reading these trip advisor comments.

The service was also lacking. They were nice and friendly, but they seemed more concerned about cleaning up tables than taking care of the customers. We had to wait quite a long time to order desert (the Kulfi and Rasmali were decent). Then had to wait a long time to get our bill. Felt neglected.

This Indian restaurant is superb. The food, service, and ambience are excellent. If you enjoy Indian food, this is the place to go. The prices are modest and the value is tops. We've visited three times, and have always left feeling satisfied and happy to have had such a delightful experience. The patio area is simple, but - ooo-la-la! - the interior is elegant and worthy of any romantic experience. This is a holding-hands/popping-the-question/planning-the-rest-of-your-life kinda place. Try the several different kinds of naan bread - betcha can't eat just one! As with many Indian restaurants, your spice choices are mild, medium, or hot.

Two very serious complaints: (1) The restaurant's website is amateurish and not at all reflective of the quality within. The website makes the place look like a "joint,"and makes the food appear unappetizing. (2) For such an elegant place with such fine service, the restaurant's drink menu has a several "shooter" selections in appallingly poor taste: The "Dirty Hooker," the "Pornstar," and the "Blow Job." This unfortunate website needs serious review by the restaurant's owner. Hire a professional photographer, sir!
