Our entrées were shrimp tempura, unagi sushi, yaki soba with chicken, chicken wings and seafood fried rice. All of... read more

Aji offers many fine combinations at reasonable prices. Simple setting, but pleasant and quick service and food is fresh and tasty.

Fresh, friendly, timely--what more do you need? We eat in and take out, take out most often including this time, and my only complaint is that they need a new container for soup because it doesn't say hot enough.

We arrivied at peak dinner time (6:00pm) on a Sat. night with hungry boys and the crowd of people in front got seated and we were told we had to wait 25 minutes so that was a bit of a downer but once our turn came the service was right on cue and we were a little too ravenous to... More

We often go to Aji when we get the feeling for Japanese food or want lite fare. It reminds me of some of the small restaurants I remember from being in Japan long ago. My biggest problem is deciding what I want to eat since there are 11 Cold appetizers,18 Hot appitizers,9 Soups & Salads, 10 Noodles and Rice, 22... More

Aji has some of the best sushi in the area. The menu is pretty varied, and the ingredients are fresh and tasty. I do agree with some of the comments about the service -- that's certainly not the strongest element of this place. The servers are often distracted or unavailable, and it's a small place that can get busy and... More

I wanted to treat myself to some sushi and sake. So i went here and I have eaten here before. The waitress was attentive when I first walked in and then she got on her phone and never looked up at me again. I had to get up from my table at least 2 times and go to where she... More

I love sushi, and this is place is local, convient, and tasty. Prices are decent for the area. I went with friends and we were all happy. We started with a house salad, and they were huge, dressing was interesting, I would probably get it on the side. And they are large enough to share. We got several varities of... More
