Very very slow, drinks took half an hour to arrive food was over half an hour later, then the card machine wasn’t working so had to drive to nearest cash point to get money

Very over priced

My daughter had tikka masala and I had korma both were identical dishes in flavour but hers had red food colouring in 😩

We ordered 5 mins after arriving including drinks and papadums. These promptly arrived and everything was well. After an HOUR of waiting (a bloody takeaway is quicker) our mains came out. 2 masalas and a rice... they were both watery and tasteless and quite possibly the worst curry we have ever eaten. Will be avoiding this local place now! If you have a new chef get rid of him and find someone who can do the job!

This is the second time we have eaten at spice aroma, the first time Staff really friendly made us feel welcome food excellent. This time staff not very friendly didn't smile or try to engage with us, but food good.

We were there for my mother’s 80th Birthday the service was so so slow they took 45 mins just to take the order We left after 3 hours 15 mins and only had two courses. We were a group of 17 arrival 7.00 also had 3 children with us. The staff are friendly but would not go back on a Friday or Saturday as the priority is to take away customers with their orders rather than diners in their restaurant. This is such a shame we have been many times before and it’s been fabulous. Don’t go in a large group especially over the weekend. Still have to say the food was fabulous once we got it.

Delicious food and lovely restaurant. My only criticism is the disorganised service which was also quite slow. We did mention it and they willingly took it on board and apologised. Would still be happy to go back 😊

We had a family meal here and the food was delicious. Everyone enjoyed it. The atmosphere is relaxed and the restaurant welcoming. The only reason I took off one star was because of the slow service. It may have been a one off and it certainly won’t put me off going again - delicious Indian food, would highly recommend.

Great service, Tandori food was nice but could be a bit more spicy. This is our 2nd visit and we will be going again and have recommended it to friends also.

Fantastic high quality Indian food, lovely decor inside, a real surprise as the outside doesn't reflect how nice this place is.
Great value for money, the food was spicy and hot just to our taste. Drinks are not expensive and there's lots of choice of wine by the glass. Plenty of free parking, Would definitely recommend!

It was very tasty meal and good atmosphere. One of my friend could not eat hot food and had nut allergy. Most mild curry contained nuts so it was difficult to order curry.

OpenTable really need to sort out their communication. They sent us an email reminder a day before which was all correct, however when we arrived at the Restaurant they did NOT have our booking. They mumbled something about systems being down. I would NOT recommend booking through OpenTable as they do not confirm the booking with the restaurant. We had to wait for tables to become available sufficient for our group of 10 people. Spicy Aroma did not apologise in any way, however they did accommodate us and the food was good. But the service was not. The waiters could not understand our drinks requests, they did not bring the water we requested, and we had to wait for 90 minutes to get our food.

Food and service very good . I don't know if it was because we booked for a table for 7pm but very empty in the place would been nice if a bit fuller with people as felt a little bit watched by the staff. Food lovely no complaints there a little pricey . The drinks menu not much choose. And the rose wine I had a little bitter. Probably next time do the takeaway service as we did like the food .
