Vegetarian meals (with protein) can still be a struggle at times. I was out shopping in Sidney and stumbled onto this restaurant. They served a wonderful Vegetarian Thali with pleasant service. Would definitely return!

The Royal Aroma in Sidney is my favourite restaurant- had both lunches and dinner inside the restaurant in the past, recently outside at sidewalk table and lots of lunch takeouts. Truly can’t get enough of their food! Rich flavourful sauces, generous servings and lots of...variety. Service is great as well. Visited with both family and friends and they have all loved it! Here’s my suggestion: order a takeout lunch combo then go to the beach or park for a picnic or buy a combo at lunch and have it for dinner.More

We recently phoned-in a take order for an early 3:30 PM pickup as we were catching a 4 PM ferry back home. I arrived at 3:20 and the very well wrapped food was ready for me right on time. I am pleased to report that...the food was superb! The serving were large enough for four separate dinners over the next few evenings. Needless to say, we will be back for more on our next trip to Sidney. I can highly recommend the Royal Aroma in Sidney!More

Great menu and priced well. The three of us had 4 dishes plus rice, naan and desserts. There were leftovers to take home. Great for take out or dine in. Setting is very nice and staff are really friendly. You won't go wrong going to...Royal Aroma.More

My husband and I had an overall wonderful experience at Royal Aroma! From the flavourful generously portioned spiced dishes prepared by the chef and Renee our (menu) knowledgeable and friendly server, this place was top rated. I highly recommend everyone to tease their taste buds...whether at the restaurant, delivery or pickup.More

Today we picked up two Thali lunches for take out and we were so impressed! The meal was absolutely delicious, the service friendly, they had our order ready and it was still hot by the time we got to the beach, and the variety of...items in our lunch tray were absolutely spot on. Took us right back to India. The spices were so well balanced. Thank you!!! We will be back.More

Excellent Indian cuisine. Not too spicy, lots of flavour. Good menu selection and first class service. A challenging time to open a restaurant and we wish them success.

We arrived in Sidney for our annual family visit in September. I was thrilled to see a new Indian restaurant on the Main Street of Sidney - Royal Aroma. I decided to give it a try after needing a snack. I ordered the Royale appetizer...sampler to munch as we walked around the town. WOW, it was delicious. The pakora was crisp ad soft, the paneer pakora was delicious with the accompanying chutney but the star was the samosa. It was a great size. The filling was delicious, fresh and soft. This is probably the best samosa that I was tried....this restaurant is an absolute gem and excellent addition to Sidney.....I will definitely be returning.More
