This past Sunday, Jenn and I went to buffet brunch at Aroma in Shirlington. We both love Indian food (okay, we love pretty much any kind of food) and were excited to try this new-to-us restaurant.
The food was good, but I wasn't amazed...maybe I was too full from breakfast at Popeye!?
Overall, the service was good, the food was varied and fresh (even though we came towards the end of brunch), and the decor was pretty. I really liked the lighting fixtures and the bamboo ceiling (look at photos toward the end of this post).
I started with potatoes cooked in coconut milk, lamb meatballs and butter chicken. What impressed me the most, however, was the rice: I wish I could cook rice to such perfection. The second time around I chose a few vegetarian dishes and a bit more of the chicken. I'm embarrassed to say that I could not finish my second plate.
Overall, I think the company was more fun than the food. For dessert, we had mini cheesecakes at my place.
