Our Story

Aroma is a family run business and we have been creating authentic Asian cuisine since 2007. Our aim is quite simple, to ensure that your visit to us is the finest example of Asian cuisine in the North West region, if not the whole of England. Aroma only uses the best ingredients to ensure the culinary delights experienced by the British Raj are brought to you in the heart of Burnley.
Our journey began with the infamous Kohinoor Restaurant, which was based on Manchester Road, Burnley, in 1979. After running this for 8 years, we opened The Shalamar Restaurant in 1987. Having drawn regular custom from the local community for many years, we decided it was time to modernise and revamp the restaurant. This was when we decided to re-open as Aroma.
"Every time I have moved or improved my restaurant it is so I have something better to offer the people of Burnley. That has kept me going all these years. I have had tremendous support from the people of Burnley. I am really thankful that they have given me a lot of love."
Aroma’s contemporary design was especially chosen to help us to achieve an ambient surrounding for each customer to enjoy whilst sampling the most delicious Asian food. Our vast experience in the restaurant business will make your visit an absolute delight.

As Burnley’s most modern Asian Restaurant we offer an inspiring combination of traditional and modern Asian food. We combine Eastern Spices in Western Cuisine.

Aroma was one of the first restaurants in Lancashire to win the county’s highest health award, the Recipe 4 Health certificate. We have won numerous other awards over the years, not just for our cleanliness but for our authentic Asian cuisine.

"You have to work hard and show courage if you want to achieve anything."
Mr. Majeed (Proprietor) is the longest serving Restauranter in the area, having now served the people of Burnley and beyond for over 40 years.
