Aroma Padang restaurant has a creative idea to attract visitors who come. The way the menu is presented here is unique, namely by utilizing a conveyor belt to serve Padang specialties in the restaurant. This sushi train concept makes it easy for visitors to choose the menu they want because the various choices will be rotated around. Visitors just wait in front of the conveyor belt and choose their favorite Padang menu. A really fun way to eat!
