Indian aroma is the best restaurant in whangarai. I usually come here twice a week just to taste their awesome food and good service. Malai kofta is my favourite dish from here.

They have a great menu that seems to cover most Indian food types, all well cooked and tastes good. The restaurant has a good atmosphere and is decorated in an Indian style.

Went there for lunch today, and loved the food these guys cooked. Highly recommend them, they were quick to bring water and complementary papadums. And when the food was served, it was piping hot on hot plates and super tasty. Can't remember what the name of the lamb dish, but it was an Aroma special called something like Sabadayah. It... More

Had a very pleasant experience here 6 January 2017. Friendly, and we were asked what strength we would like our meals, wine was pleasantly 'cheap' for NZ, at about 28NZD per bottle. Having already experienced Aucklands prices we found it superb value for money, and pretty tasty. Would visit again.

The young lad taking orders could not explain some of the dishes. This is fairly poor. The butter chicken was a tad too sweet, but the lamb chops were Indian spicy as requested. Servings were big enough. I wouldn't rush back.
