Aroma - Indian on King St.

Papadums were tasty, a little saltier than I’ve had before, and served with fresh sauces: the usual Indian sweet red and minty green. But these sauces tasted like they had been made a few hours earlier. A nice treat.

Ghobi Tandoori came on a sizzling platter with smells that tantalized the senses. The cauliflower was well spiced with a mélange that was interesting from the first bite. But as it was cauliflower and not meat, it wasn’t too filling and served as a nice appetizer.

Chicken Mirch Tikka was similarly presented, but had a slightly different spicing than the cauliflower. It was kind of minty, with a little heat to it; but after a few pieces the flavor just couldn’t carry the fact that it was chicken breast and it needed some of the sauce. This was not due to mis-cooking. It was cooked perfectly. Very tender from start to finish. But if I ordered this again, I’d get a side dish of hot pickles to keep it interesting.

Lamb Vindaloo came in a little metal bowl and also had a little heat. None of these dishes were extraordinarily spicy (hot), but they had enough heat to be interesting. The sauce here was pungent, and went well with the tender rice.

The Naan was fresh, and served in typical fashion.

Service was helpful and friendly.

This was one of the best Indian meals I’ve had. My only regret is that I didn’t order the spicy pickles.
