Dining amid Nature

Try Aroma, if you're looking for a restaurant where you can dine in relative peace


IN DUSTY Tirupur, which bustles with activity through the day, it's not all that easy to find a place where time floats past at a languorous pace. If your pockets don't run deep enough to foot the bills at star hotels, but you still want to dine in peace, try Aroma on Kumaran Road.

A member of the Mumbai-based Bhagat Tarachand Group of Hotels, the 100-seater restaurant serves a variety of vegetarian fare. Don't be put off by the narrow stretch that leads to the hotel. Inside, what greets you is a restaurant set amid a manicured lawn with twittering birds and frisking rabbits for company.

The menu is very expansive and the food wholesome. Start off with crunchy bhindi fry and French fries, before moving on to the main course. The options are many, with the dishes cutting across cuisines - they serve Chinese, Punjabi and South Indian items. Baby idli, mini idlis dunked in fragrant sambar, is a good option in the South Indian section. The tandoori rotis are hot and crisp, just the way they should be.

If you've eaten red-hot shahi paneer all these days, the cream-coloured paneer shahi kurma here will look bland. But, dip in a piece of roti and experience this time-tested dish with a twist.

The addition of cashew gravy does the trick. You can also choose from mushroom vindaloo, hara bhara masala or navratan korma.

Makki roti, bajra roti, butter phulkas and garlic kulcha are the special breads on offer. Round off the meal with delectable curd rice. Tempered with just a hint of spice and garnished with pomegranate seeds, it tastes great.

The portions are generous and the service good. A meal for two would cost around Rs. 150.

The restaurant also has a fast food stall selling North and South Indian snacks. For children, the play area with a merry go-round and seesaw are added attractions. Aroma is open from 12 noon to 11 pm. Call 0421-2246381 or 5321386 for details.
