“Next time we'll stay for dinner”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

My wife and I fancied an Indian meal but wanted to catch a TV programme. Catch-up is okay if you can avoid everyone telling you what happened before you've seen it. I had eaten with other friends at Aroma Spice and we had had a good evening. On this occasion we decided to order and pick up the meal at the same time.
We chose a Tandoori Chicken Tikka and Lamb Rogan Josh with Pulau Rice and a Peshwari Naan and added an Onion Bahjee as a shared starter. We had an ice cold lager while we waited. The staff were very hospitable but not pushy, even though they let on that table bookings were perhaps less than expected for a Saturday night.Service was prompt and, since we had parked in the public car park opposite, we had our meal home in no time. The food was as tasty as I remembered and we were pleased to find complementary poppadoms and relishes
included. We have had cheaper priced courses elsewhwere but the actual value was excellent and we enjoyed our meal while watching the Commonwealth Games on our own telly.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is the first time I've been to the Aroma Spice, it was recommended to me by my in-laws, the owner/manager used to manage the Eastern Garden in Loughborough but moved to the Aroma Spice 10 years ago.

From start to finish the service was amazing, the waiters were polite and well presented. The food was some of the nest Indian food I've had in a long time. As a party of 5 we pre ordered the lamb dish, you have to pre order 48 hrs in advance to they can prepare it and marinade it in the spices. Its then slowly cooked for hours. When it was brought to the table the restaurant pretty much came to a stand still, it was served on a huge silver platter and was carved at the table, it was so tender it just fell off the bone.

The dish came with another huge platter of special fried rice, and the sauce the lamb was cooked in, decanted into serving bowls. We ordered several side dishes and bread, however I think we may have over ordered, the rest of the lamb came home with us!

We had coffee and a complimentary liqueur to end the evening.

A truly exquisite meal, I would recommend a party of 6 to 8 more for this lamb dish, there were 5 of us and we had plenty left over. Our meal came to £33 a head with drinks etc but was well worth it, it was a birthday celebration so it was nice to push the boat out.

Will definitely be going back to try some of the other dishes on the menu.

Just great....

“Great Indian food, friendly staff”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

We visited here on our weeks boat holiday up the Soar. No booking, but the friendly front of house made sure we were made to feel welcome and showed us to our table. The menu was extensive and the food was excellent. Staff very attentive. All in all, a lovely evening meal in very pleasant surroundings.

For boaters - good and safe moorings here near the lock. The white horse inn is nearer, but in my opinion it is well worth the little walk to Aroma Spice if you enjoy Indian style good food.
