Aroma is the only fine restaurant at Kempinsky hotel.
The menu is attractive and well-balanced, priced OK (not cheap but value for money is OK).
Very good food overall.
The service is absolutely fantastic, friendly and helpful and attentive.
Wine list is very expensive as everywhere else in Doha, but if you look long and hard enough (or by trial and error and with the waiters' competent help) you can find some hidden gems and/or some very pleasant wines for a relatively acceptable price.
The decor is a bit cold post-modern but why not, that's the style of the place anyway and it's a style like any other.
Only snag - but big, big snag for me : the restaurant is in quasi-open space to the bar, where almost every night live artists (good ones, too) give concerts at completely ear-deafening sound levels. As a result the restaurant is EXTREMELY noisy and it is often hard to entertain any conversation with fellow diners at your table, let alone to spend a relaxing time dining if that is what you wanted.
After several dinners there and several relatively unfruitful remarks (they can't really help it, can they ?) I had to stop dining there even though I lived upstairs. What a pity for the good food and the great service...
