Went to Aroma last night (Friday). The food was lovely and fresh as it was fairly busy so was continually refreshed. Really good selection, including duck and pancakes (not sure they have these mid-week). I didn't try the tepanyaki but all the dishes I did try were delicious.
The dessert options have improved since I last went a year or so ago. There was even a chocolate fountain with various things to dip in it!
I think it was a little expensive at £13.30/head but good for the occasional treat.
There is absolutely no quality to any ingredients and the staff are really rude!
Do not waste your money and stomache!
This is essentially the only Chinese buffet in Luton. The food here is good for British Chinese food. Some people like it, some people really hate it. You can't go wrong with the egg rolls and the noodles. They also have a wannabe Mongolian bbq. This place can get really crowded especially on weekends. They get really anal about people coming in who aren't going to eat. Also, don't bother coming in towards the closing hour because you'll be eating leftovers.
Aroma is a great start, or finish to a night depending whether you're out at the pubs/clubs or you've caught a movie with the other half.
The buffet is as good as any other but where Aroma really comes in to its own is the teppanyaki. This is where you select your own raw foods and have it cooked right in front of you to a style of your choosing. You can select anything from chicken and steak to squid alongside peppers, onions, bean sprouts etc.
Another nice touch is with the deserts. Rather than offering just jelly and ice cream as a cheap option, Aroma lay on a number of fruits such as pineapple and melons as well as always having two large cakes in the desert section; not strictly keeping with SE Asian cuisine but a nice way to finish your meal anyway!
The service is usually excellent and the decoration/lighting gives a good atmosphere and would never have you believe you're sat next to a cinema, arcade and bowling alley.
Been there twice at lunchtime. I found it very good value for money. It was an all you could eat affair, with a hugh selection of food. The also had a very good selection of fresh fruit available.
Brilliant place to take friends and family - cheaper during the week and during lunch times - Always friendly and polite staff.
Good Buffet Style Restaurant. Easy location, fair to good waitress service. Usually a large choice of items, slightly more expensive than most chinese buffets in Luton, but a good choice for a large party of friends or family.
Well i think Aroma is a great place and a good price.When you been a few times like i have -over time you need to see the menu change a bit!
Nothing like it used to be. The tepenyaki is awful
Aroma is a great all you can eat Chinese restaurant, which is in a great location and serves up some fantastic food. The all you can eat buffet is chaep priced at only 7.95, which is extremely good value. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the staff are extremely pleasent and will stop at nothing to please you and make your meal enjoyable. Great food at a great price!
this restaurant is sooooooo nice and great value for money, there is so much to choose from you will never be board, they have a huge selection of starters,mains and desert and they also have a cook while you wait bit where oyu can make your own sirfry up so can be very perosnal. its great for all the family as they can just pick whatever they fancy. the way the restaurant is set out makes it easy to get around and they are very quick to clear your dirty plates but not too presuring to give your plate up lol. they also are very good with giving you drinks promptly so your never sitting for ages waiting for servoce. and its all kept on a tab at your table so at the end you end you can pay easily. this really is very highly reccomended and its making hungry thinking of the place. so if you have never been then get there quick
