Description
Aroma Restaurant is an Indian restaurant based in Randburg, close to the Randpark Golf Course, specialising in fresh, made to order Indian cuisine. We focus on authentic, traditional North Indian (and some South Indian) cuisine, prepared traditionally and served in Aroma's unique contemporary style. Our executive chefs, produce the most decadent, aromatic, flavoursome food, with flair, in an open kitchen! Opened by a mother and daughter duo during Women's week in August 2015, we have since been recognized with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence during 2017 and our now considered one of Johannesburg's favourite Indian restaurants. We have a great passion for what we do and a great love of fine food, with each dish individually prepared, using only the freshest produce from the best suppliers. Our spices are roasted and ground in-house by our executive chefs. Our smooth, delectable paneer (Indian cheese) is also made in-house.
