Not very good

Posted on 01 / 14 / 2015

We ordered the tofu & vegetables, a mixed vegetable dish, vegetable fried rice, and a side order of noodles. Unfortunately, while they have a vegan menu and are very vegan friendly when ordering, it was probably some of the worst Chinese I've ever had. The veggies were very fresh, but the meals were laden with super soggy rice noodles and the tofu was silken (good for soups, not for deep frying) and covered in a slop of mushy corn starch that dripped off the tofu(clearly they didn't know how to properly fry tofu). The veggie fried rice was bland. Will not return. Chinese restaurants that have vegan-by-accident items are many times better (and many times cheaper). My partner ate the side order of noodles and that was all he could stomach.

Pros: Vegan menu, Fresh vegetables, Beautiful restaurant & central location
Cons: Soggy, bland, unappetizing meals, Expensive

The restaurant has a nice setting. The food is consistent and good. The staff understand what vegan dishes include and don't include. I recommend getting fried rice with your dish instead of boiled rice.

Great Vegan Menu at Aroma!

Ask for the Vegetarian Menu when you arrive at the restaurant, and make sure to tell the staff that you are vegan. Everything on this Vegetarian Menu is vegan. The menu was devised in co-operation with the 'Cork Vegans' group, and the restaurant is fully aware of what vegan entails. The food is prepared and cooked separately from the meat and fish. The Vegetarian Menu can be viewed here: http://corkvegans.ie/AromaMenu.pdf. Highly recommended!

Pros: Excellent Food, Friendly staff
