a fine sushi staple in the area

excellent sushi, consistent, good prices, great specials and a lunch deal for sushi or sashimi. I'd go with the sushi and sashimi dishes and some of the appetizers. rather than the main entrees.

Not exactly my neighborhood but close enough. This was our 3rd visit, all very good. The special menu featured 5 Maki dishes, and we (2 couples) ordered the 1st two as a potential appetizer and then just completed the run with the rest, all excellent. Its a small place without a ton of atmosphere but Ill return there any time.... More

Aji's sushi is always fresh, high quality, expertly prepared and reasonably priced. Their cooked food is also quite good. Friendly staff too. It can get very busy on weekends, so it's best to call ahead and make a reservation. There's parking behind the restaurant and at meters along the street.

We went there on a Friday evening. It was busy but we made a reservation and we got a table right away.We ordered miso soup and shumai for appetizers. The shumai were light and fluffy. Our entrées were shrimp tempura, unagi sushi, yaki soba with chicken, chicken wings and seafood fried rice. All of our meals were great. The noise... 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
