Fantastic Food

We've been to Aji three times and had great food each time. The service was great, the ambiance was charming. The menu is varied and lots to explore.

We visit our relatives in Boulder once or twice a year and always go out of our way to visit Aji. The food is very good, quite on the rich side, but in a good way. You can get brunch, lunch, dinner, coffee in a French Press, a variety of mixed drinks. The atmosphere is generally quite although casual and... More

This is a beautiful little restaurant, very charming and the staff pleasant. Unfortunately, our food was mediocre. My chicken taco had almost no meat. The meat in my pork taco was really over cooked as was my husband's beef dish, which came recommended by our waitress. My ice tea lacked ice which is kind of funny. The guacamole should have...

I never understood why this restaurant is never really busy but... Now I know. Service was good for us at happy hour (although we were the only people there) but food was below average. Wings - good; tuna - good; guac & chips - below average; queso - yikes!!! Waiter was nice enough to remove the queso from the bill... More

Our choice for brunch was actually one of two other establishments, but the wait was too long. There was a decent "cook to customer" ratio at Aji, so we figured it would be a nice place to try. In the time it took for us to get our food, we could have waited for a seating at a better restaurant... More

Moderately priced restaurant with very large portions on authentic Latin food. The Caesar salad was large enough that I had leftovers for lunch along with half of the chicken dish. We had a variety of things starting with a bourbon based drink with chili peppers. We shared a flat bread pizza type app. I had the Churrasco chicken with brussel... More

We stumbled upon this place in Boulder and it is awesome. The empanadas are the best I've ever had, hands down. You will never look at an empanada the same again. The rest of the menu is filled with good options, and is accommodating for vegetarians. If you're in Boulder I highly recommend stopping here. Been for brunch and lunch... More

I have never been a fan of ceviche, but we tried the special and it was delicious. We ordered off of the churasco menu. I had the steak and my husband had the chicken. Both were delicious. I had the Rosemary Roasted Potatoes and Summer Squash. While I enjoyed both, my sister complained that the squash was only zucchini. I... More
