Aroma Thai on Randolph

Steve Z | Feb 10, 2004 08:32 AM

Aroma Thai has moved into the shuttered space formerly occupied by Hi Ricky. I went there for lunch yesterday (it's just around the corner from my office). Although the menu offers heat selections from 1 - Beginner to 6 Thai Hot no returns, my Tom Yum ordered at #6 barely even registered on the Steve Z hot scale. Not a bead of sweat was raised. The taste was good, though with an unusual tomato note to the broth. My red curry (also ordered Thai Hot) was equally mild and very soupy. Overall, I was not impressed. I have not been to the Aroma on Broadway, so I have nothing to compare it to, but this place was dissapointing.
