The restaurant, accommodating the maximum of more than 50 people, has become a regular destination for groups of tourists from India.

According to Mr. Cao Tri Dung, Chairman of the Da Nang Tourism Association, even when traveling to Da Nang, Indian people still keep the habit of eating curry, thali, biryani rice or chicken tikka. He, therefore, highlighted that the development of the Indian culinary system in Da Nang is the right direction to welcome the influx of visitors from the country.

At the Indian Aroma Restaurant, curries are prepared in a variety of ways, from vegetables to meats such as chicken, fish, and goat with the main ingredients being curry powder, and cinnamon and anise flavours.

Notably, chicken tikka masala, a traditional and quite popular Indian dish, is usually made with yogurt marinated chicken and features the harmonious combination of tikka masala, chili and ginger powder, and unsweetened yogurt. The sauce of the dish is made from spicy spices, cream and orange powder made from tomatoes.

According to traditional Indian eating habits, chicken tikka masala will taste better when served with naan bread which helps to soak up the delicious sauce. The bread is made from dry yeast and flour, then shaped into a flat circle and baked in the oven at a certain temperature. The dish can also be garnished with fresh cilantro or mint for added flavour and colour.

Visitors to the Indian Aroma Restaurant will be deeply impressed with quite cozy and polite space, and a variety of vegetarian and salty food.

The restaurant's regular customers are mostly Indian travellers or Islam and Hindu believers.

Indian cuisine is quite difficult to eat, so for those trying the dish for the first time, the restaurant recommends that you choose thali which is actually a mixed dish consisting of rice, naan bread, bean curry, potatoes, unsweetened yogurt and a few other ingredients to add flavour to the dish. All are placed together in a beautifully and attractively decorated tray, and the dish is considered as a safe choice because of the combination of many spices, where you can choose a spice that suits your culinary habits.
