Worth a try!

We've eaten here twice in the past month - once for lunch and the next time for dinner. Both times the food was great. The chicken curry had just the right amount of spice and the sushi was excellent - especially the eel and tuna.

The restaurant is unpretentious and clean. The food is excellent and consistent. It is a neighborhood restaurant ran by a group with a hospitality heart. A gem! The closest thing that you will find to a "corner restaurant" in the city. Regular patrons will return again and again for the food and the warm friendly treatment.

This is definitely the best sushi & tempura anywhere. Over 10 new items were recently added to the menu. The "Mayo Hotate" is my new favorite. This is a must go to place.

After living here for 7 years we can't believe the wonderful food we've been missing by not knowing about AI Japanese Restaurant. We have passed this great restaurant which is in St. Joes Plaza off of Palm Coast Parkway a million times without thinking about checking it out. This was mainly because a lot of the store fronts there are... More

Nice family-style friendly restaurant. The atmosphere is not too shabby for a mall type restaurant. Never disappointed and always a good value.

Don't look up the address, it is next to the Ace hardware store (the only one). Very good for a small community and it has a long list of regulars. Friendly and helpful staff. Don't expect to buy wine, the list is lousy, buy the Japanese beer.
