Aroma Restaurant and Lounge50 Queens St, Port Moody
Why oh why
Submitted Sunday, March 6, 2016 - 10:50pm [Dine in]

Why do people go to all the trouble of opening a restaurant and squander the opportunity to do something with it? The Asian population around Metro Vancouver is big, and yet all these places can ever do (no matter where in Canada) is serve every possible permutation with the selected pre-cooked chunk of meat drowning miserably in the selected pre-blendered sauce, then (barely) microwaved.

You would not eat this at home, so why serve it in your restaurant? It is bad. A menu like this is not lots of choice, it is anti-choice. If you want to save money, cook 6 different dishes and that's it. Let people choose from those. Cook fresh. Cook simple.

These places need a kick up the backside from Gordon Ramsey. You have an opportunity to excel, to really show what you can do and be brilliant, to have a packed house or to be shipping out dozens of take-out orders.

But like every other similar place, you find the lowest common denominator, and halve it. You figure out what people will put up with, and scrape over that bar. Buck up!

The ladies filling the glasses and taking the plates were great, but the (proprietor?) taking the order took service lessons from Basil Fawlty. If you don't want to be there on a Sunday night sir, just shut the doors and stay home.

This place had promise when it opened, and slid down hill. I will not go again. How sad that Port Moody, lacking in Indian Restaurants and PRIME location for a successful one, is laboured with more of the same.
