Dropped in to Aji on a busy Friday night without a booking. Had only a short wait for a table, and for our orders to be taken. The first thing we were served is best described as a small portion of cheese bread, almost like a mini muffin. Delicious, subtle flavour. This was followed by a Caesar salad, large enough... More

Happened to walk in to this spot on Pearl Street for brunch. We were more than pleasantly surprised. Service was efficient and the staff was very personable and met any request we had made in a timely and gracious manner. The food we had was excellent.. I had the shrimp and grits topped by an egg done to perfection.. The... More

I loved their guacamole, but felt the rest of the food was average. They offer dipping sauces for their entrees and appetizers, but they just didn't grab me like a good sauce should. The place itself is gorgeous and sitting outside is lovely. Was not impressed with my mojito--it tasted soapy.

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
