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.

Superb dining experience. Some of the tastiest and best-presented Indian food in Toronto. Friendly service, comfortable space, too. Highly recommended.

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!

After a long flight from Germany, we were dying to try some nice food, and the concierge at the Intercontinental Hotel was very helpful to suggest this delightful restaurant with friendly servers and great food. Wish we had one like this in our town back home!

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.

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.

Made a reservation but still had to wait/find someone to finally get seated. Staff were slow to get a babyseat for our child. Had to remind staff twice about our order of beer. No elevator for people with mobility issues. Food and decor were fine, but we would not come back again.

Aroma’s lunch buffet is outstanding! Each dish is distinct and full of flavour. It is worth the drive into the city just for lunch. There is plenty of variety and great value. My personal favourites this visit were the Muttar Paneer, Butter Chicken, Chana Masala and Aloo Ghobi. The food here appeals to my family (Indian) and my friends from many diverse cultural backgrounds. Can’t wait to go back!

My friend had tipped the waiter personally in cash. While settling the payment with the restaurant manager/owner, my friend did not add any tip since he had already paid. The manager /owner made a loud comment saying where is the tip? It is standard to pay 15-20% tip. My friend said I took care of it by paying in cash. The owner got furious and said that's not how its done. Giving tip is customers choice whether given by hand or not given at all. It is directly linked to the service. The owner insisted for additional tip. We were shocked by this behaviour and had an very unpleasant experience after a decent meal. I will definitely not go again or recommend anyone to go either. Owner needs to learn basic customer handling techniques and not make customer embarassed by demanding tips out loud.

Food was par excellence. Am a frequent, albeit intermittently frequent, visitor. Always order a la carte. We all loved my selection of vegetarian appetizers and entrees (always order my favourites). Attention to details ws commendable except for a couple of misses. The fresh green chutney is becoming a rarity. Already look fwd to my nxt.

The service is pathetic. The waiter literally standing on our head and before we finished the food he came with the bill. Food quality and taste is average. Not many options in Desserts nor the breads are completely cold and I have to remind the waiter thrice that I need fresh bread. I am definitely not going back.

I was pleasantly surprised. When we walked in, the AC was working too hard and there was a musty smell in the staircase. But once we got into the restaurant, the service and food were outstanding. We had a great time, and are thankful to the staff at Aroma for it.

First time dining in at Aroma for lunch buffet. Lots of great meat and vegetarian option so there's something for everyone and a good value. Mild spice level so everyone can enjoy. Several of their plates were dirty (had food residue) so that's something they should work on.

My friends and I were attending Roy Thomson Hall and they were going to be there about 15 minutes later than I was. So I asked the waiter if I could order for them ahead and have it when they arrived. He agreed and it worked superbly. They arrived, sat down and the food arrived!. We had plenty of time to eat and attend the concert. The food was delicious. Thank you.
