Over the past 3 years we have returned to be welcomed to a friendly family atmosphere with excellent food at reasonable prices. Service is always great, they ensure the correct spice level of your dish. Live jazz music by two musicians entertained us last night,...on other occasions a magician or other live bands - there is an ample dance floor. In warmer weather the outside patio is set overlooking a pretty flowered area with views of the mountains.More

Ordered take our a few years ago and decided to try dining in. Couldn't remember how it tasted but we ordered the vegi pakoras, butter chicken and naan. It was flavorless and not great. The beer they stated was an import, Bombay pilsner, it a...local brew. Asked them stated on menu it's a typo, I asked prior. Will not be back.More

I’m a big fan of Aroma but am a little tired of the runaround when you want them to deliver. The website is quite clear - delivery for $8 after 5:30pm. NOPE! You get told to come pick up the order because it will be...at least an hour and a half, in the background, you can hear the owner telling the staff to tell the customer to order more otherwise they can’t deliver and then they resort to saying the driver isn’t available so order on skip the dishes or DoorDash. Very poor customer service from that end and it’s turned me off from coming here again. There are other options in the tri-cities and that’s who will get my business going forward. You just lost an advocate - not a smart business strategy...and I’m East Indian - I know what they’re saying in the background in both Punjabi and Hindi. Makes me shake my head.More

We quite often order (large amounts) from Aroma or eat in and the food is generally good. Tonight, our take out order was terrible. The sauce was very watery and didn't have much flavour. Disappointing.

Okay, you know that I love butter chicken, but I also love many other forms of Indian cuisine. This is a fantastic restaurant with a wide variety of Indian foods that are all cooked in a sumptuous fashion. The prices are reasonable and the service...is efficient and friendly. 'CM' is a gracious host, as he makes you feel very much at home in his premises. I've never had a bad meal here in the years that I have been going to this fabulous restaurant. I really like the fact that it is nicely lit (without being too bright) and it is a peasant place to have a quiet conversation. Check it out - you will not be disappointed!More

First time here with friends. Food was okay but service was horrible. Too much hovering over our table. It was a Friday night and it was not busy at all. There were maybe 6-8 tables of customers. At least 3 servers kept coming to our...table and asking if we were done every 5 minutes and the answer was the same, "no, we are not done". Our conversations were continually interrupted by this same question so it became overwhelming and we felt that we were being rushed out the entire evening. One of the servers was abrasive and abrupt when he kept approaching us. At first I thought he was a customer by the way he was dressed (dirty, casual clothes). Not impressed at all and will not be back or will recommend to others unfortunately.More

I love my Indian food but I am very picky as I am Indian. We've heard several people talk about this place and rave about it, I have always been hesitant and I tend to frequent the Surrey area for high quality, true Indian food....I was quite surprised with the flavor and spice to our dishes along with the quality of tandoor naan. For soemthing closer to our area I was very happy and would consider ordering again.More
