Last year Aji was our "go to" place for a quick meal before going to the Boulder Phil. We went yesterday and were really disappointed. The service was slow and un-attentive, the happy hour portions were smaller than we remember, the red wine by the glass was barely acceptable, and the food was generally unremarkable. Next time we will stick... More

Was there with a large group one night. Service was good. My roast chicken dish was overcooked and dry. Guacomole was good but not enough chips to enjoy it with. The flourless chocolate cake was not good.

We went for brunch on a Sunday and loved the menu options we saw. However, when we went in, service was spotty and the food was nothing special. Ceviche portion was maybe 2 bites and the eggs a couple of us ordered were cold and overdone. The price was high considering the quality wasn't great. Sangria was really sweet and... More

I was there on Sept 1st 2014, having previously visited it in July 2013. In 2013, the ceviche was good, with octopus as the ingredient. It was quite good. This year, the ceviche ingredients were an odd lot (tilapia, salmon, shrimp), and the curing sauces were an equally strange collation . Ceviche needs firm white fish or cephalopod flesh, and... More

They have a nice variety of dishes from different places in Latin America. All our food was delicious. The Brazilian Stew was great and the Carne Asada was very good. You should try the Brazilian cheese bread. Great location.

I was there Friday August 15th with a group of friends. While the other four had meat I went foor the fish; ceviche as starter and a Brasilian fish stew as main course. This night both courses were made with Tilapia that tasted like mud pool. Tilapia is bad in a fish stew, but beyond terrible in ceviche. Especially if... More

We had a great meal at Aji Restaurant. We chose to sit outside as the weather was beautiful. Service was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed all the food that we ordered. We had the Calamar Frito as an appetizer. The calamari was very light, not heavily fried. We especially enjoyed the Napa Slaw that was served as part of this... More

We wanted a light meal and this place fit the need. Little style tacos with unique fillings was perfect.

I went here with my mom for drinks and apps. She ordered a green apple mojito and I had the Aji margarita - both drinks were very good with just the right amount of alcohol so as not to drown out the fruity taste of the drinks. Unfortunately, the food was not up to par...We had 3 empanadas - poblano,... More
