We had a terrific dinner here. The saag paneer was the best version I have ever had. Hands down. Just a slight spice to the dish made it a stand out. The tikka masala, naan and raita were also good. But that saag paneer, wow.

We celebrated my aunt's birthday at Aroma. It was the perfect pick because the buffet has something for everyone. I love the spiciness of the food- just enough to make you want more. The server was attentive and the price was so reasonable.
