Gave another chance and tried for the lunch - Yucks! Same sauces in most of the food. Beef has been used in lamb. If you are a meat lover you would know right away that something is fishy. Upon asking to waiter he smiled and walked away that he only works here but eats outside. It was a jaw dropping answer to hear from an employee. We paid our bill quietly got out. Thanks for sharing Mr waiter.

Not as good as it use to be

A few years ago this place was amazing. The lunch buffet couldn't be beat, and dinner entrees were even better. I went to their lunch buffet recently and man has it ever degraded in quality. The rice was kinda hard, their tandoori chicken was dry. The butter chicken tasted rushed, like i wasn't marinated enough and was lacking spices. the sawa chicken was cold. They don't like the rotate the food I guess, it's too bad. And they're pretty bad at refilling your water. The atmosphere is very nice though, and the washrooms are nice and clean. Other than that, I can't say this is real Indian food anymore.

Great indian food

Aroma is definitely one of the best indian places in Toronto. The food is very delicious, fresh and crispy, better than most indian places I've been so far. The atmosphere is somewhat like a fancy banquet hall so it might seem weird at first but I guess that's the indian custom for the fancy restaurants. The staff was very nice and always brought us anything we desired right away.

Love this place!

I've been to a few Indian restaurants and I always return to this one. Aroma even beats some of the restaurants in the little India area. The lunch buffet is very good and cheap. The service is very good and they keep on top of your water. I've gone for dinner as well, and the food is superb. Fresh, yummy, juicy, the best. The only thing I don't like is there are no paper towels in the washroom, just one hand dryer that does squat. Never mind Dhaba, Go To Aroma!

Two of us went for dinner before a concert. The food was generally tasty and the service was timely. The waiter kept our water-glasses topped up with ice water - something that too many restaurants don't bother to do. Unfortunately, however, all was not well. The beverage menu doesn't list the available beers - only the categories Domestic, Imported and Indian. I asked the waiter what Imported beers they offered, hoping for something European. He proceeded to name all the beers they had, all of which are brewed in Canada, except for the Indian beer, Kingfisher, which we both ordered. It was unremarkable. The soup and the naan bread came nice and hot, but all the other food arrived lukewarm. The lamb chunks contained unpleasant bits of fat and gristle, concealed by the tasty Korma sauce, but immediately apparent once in the mouth. The after-meal coffee was small, boring-tasting, and not hot. It came with one 3/8-oz. coffee creamer of 10% butterfat, another of 2% partly-skimmed milk, and a small bowl of sugar packets. I would have expected a restaurant that charges $30 for a meal without dessert to at least be able to make a decent cup of hot coffee, and not skimp on the cream.

There are a lot of Indian restaurtants to choose from in Toronto. This one is in the heart of the Theater District and they cater for the "before the show" folks - fast service!!! The food was good (I have had better).

Excellent food, well flavoured, but not too spicey. Went with someone who wasn't sure how she felt about indian food and she loved it! She said she would definitely come again, as would I. Servers were friendly and food was prompt and hot. No complaints at all.

The size of the buffet spread and the quality of the food and the flavours were too amazing for the price of the buffet! Specially the chicken on the big hot plate was delicious. In spite of the restaurant being packed, we were taken care of very well. We had a couple of nice Indian beers, which the servers suggested, and we had a great time. We will definitely be visiting next time we're in town.

Great food, and even greater service! Of all the Indian restaurants I've been to, this is the greatest Chicken Tikka Masala I've ever had! I travel all around the world and I've tried Indian food in all major cities, and this was the most delihtful dining experience in terms of food and service. Bravo! Keep up the good work!

Service ? Awful! We were on our own. We waited for everything and had to beg for basic things. But in the meantime, we did found something to do: watch the tables of those who arrived after us being served before us. That is sad because the food was good. But don't worry, we will never come back to disturb you. Next time, I will find another indian restaurant where I feel welcomed.

Went there as it was highly recommended by a friend. Food was good. Service was bad experience. We had to wait for some one to take order. Had to wait for drinks again. Our server not friendly and was stumbling over words to explain us a few question we had about the menu. We had to wait for some time to have our table cleaned. Then they just left us forgot about us!!!. Overall i would say never take your guests there to entertain them, though they have good food.

With a bit more attention to detail, a bit of elbow grease and some love, one could take this little gem to the level of brilliant jewel. Spit and polish, clean, update. We are not high end clients, but when the premises look so dissheveled, it does cast a bit of a pall on the experience, Hire another server. Hire another server. Hire another server.

This is my "go to" restaurant in the theatre district. The service is unfailingly good, but more importantly, the food is an amazing pleasure to all of the senses. The portions are reasonable and each dish is unique in its flavours and textures. I have brought many different friends here and no one has ever left disappointed.

Our friends suggested to visit this place becaue of food & ambience. However, I was amazed to see rude behavior of waiter just for the fact that we didn't pay a tip. We never though that we would get to see this kind of hospitality. Sadly now I'll not recommend to visit this place.

Went here with a friend. The servers were very attentive and knowledgeable on menu items. Happy to have helped this place due to the King Street streetcar pilot project which is having short term negative affect on businesses. I didn't know they served lunch buffet everyday and would definitely go back when I'm in the area.

We had a reservation for lunch and had ala carte menu. Restaurant was packed with people for buffet and waiters paid could not afford to serve guests who are not there for buffet. It took almost 15 minutes juat to get the menu. It took another 20 minutes until we were brought water and another 40 minutes to get food we ordered. I looked around and found there we're couple of guests in the same situation as us. I understand they are very busy for dealing with lots of buffet people but I regret to say it was not a pleasnt experience at all. I don't think I would go back unless they find some kind of solution for that situations.

The samosas were crisp and warm and lightly spiced, a perfect appetizer on a cold winter day. We also had Tawa paneer masala, navratan korma, and the baingan bharta. The latter was everyone’s favourite. The flavours were lovely, but next time I will ask for more green chili in the bharta and the paneer masala. I did not personally have the chicken Korma, but those who did enjoyed it.We thought we would take some home, but there was none to take home. The service was very good (although for some reason it took an age to get our bill at the end of the experience, but this is a small concern.) I will definitely go again.

The staff seated my group promptly, cleared dirty/used plates from the table in a timely manner, and provided water fill-ups on a regular basis. My only minor complaint is that we had to chase down a staff member to get the bill. However, once we let the gentleman know we wanted to pay, he was quick in getting us our receipts and accepting payment. :) Btw, the food was delicious as always!

Aroma has been a preferred destination for an Indian Buffet in downtown Toronto but the buffet is not recommended as the food is tasteless and the service is below standard due the paucity of waiters, I have been going to Aroma for the last 10 years and I see the quality degrading by the day - the food is nothing to what is expected from a standard Indian Restaurant and the waiters had to be called a million times before they served you - for the buffet the service was extremely slow and the food was cold. kindly skip the buffet and order a la carte as that will be value for your taste buds and money. Another strange thing we found in the bill was that we were charged 15% Service charge for no service offered. Before heading was a sumptuous Indian meal kindly check other Indian Restaurants and give this one a skip.
