Aroma Spice has steadily built a name for itself in northwest London on the strength of its food philosophy. The recipes used by head chef Shiraz Choudwary and his expert team in the kitchen have been handed down through the generations – when you eat at this Hampstead Indian restaurant, you know you’re eating the same dishes that you might expect to find in family homes in subcontinental Asia, especially the signature tawa dishes. Secondly, Aroma Spice keep things light and healthy, even when it comes to their delicious grills. In the end, though, what keeps regulars coming back to this Fleet Road local is that every dish is prepared with real passion.
Aroma Spice’s signature dishes are without a doubt their special tawa selection. These are prepared according to a secret family recipe, taking fresh herbs, spices, onion and green peppers, combining these with chicken, lamb, or king prawn tikkas, and cooking the lot in a heavy, concave griddle made of cast iron. The results depend on the tawa sauce, but are uniformly zesty and a perennial favourite among Hampstead locals who have worked their way through the extensive menu here at this Fleet Road favourite. Take a lassi to quench and cool and you’re half way to a proper Indian banquet in the heart of northwest London.
