Nice neighborhood Sushi place in Newtonville. Not too fancy, but decent quality sushi at a reasonable price. Lunch specials are very good as well.

Excellent decor in this little neighborhood. The food is very good, and fits the style. We enjoyed maki and teriyaki chicken, both were very good.

Aji is our favorite. Whenever we want to introduce a friend to the world of sushi this is where we bring them. You should try: Princess maki, New wave maki, Black forest maki, Kings maki, and Dr Bob's maki. The seaweed salad and the avocado salad are also excellent.

We go to Aji and also order food very often. Sushi is always excellent, fresh and nicely presented. Service is fast and the staff is polite and attentive. Very reasonably priced food for a place like Newton (very upscale and expensive city in Massachusetts). It is so nice that finally we have a restaurant that people enjoy (after multiple attempts...

We enjoyed lunch at Aji. We had lovely, subtle vegetable gyoza (which could be ordered fried or steamed) and succulent maki for starters. I had the sesame chicken, which was delicious, and my brother-in-law enjoyed his vegetarian udon noodles dish. Looking forward to my next visit.

This is my second time there. The saba was glorious both times. I do love saba. The place is small, not tiny. But if you had ever told me there would be food fit to eat in Newton, I'd have laughed until I cried. Goodness knows there was none when I was trapped there as a teen. The service is... More

I've actually never eaten at the actual restaurant, only ordered take-out, so I don't have a point of view on ambiance or service. I can say that usually around 7pm it's pretty crowded in there and there are people waiting. The sushi itself has always been very fresh, delicious, and well prepared. I've never had anything that did not taste... More

Pretty good sushi place. The place is small, but not tiny. On a Friday night at 6:30/7pm it's packed with families and there was a 20-30 min wait which deterred some people from going in. Some nice vegetarian choices. The shiitake mushroom tempura maki was probably my favorite.

Absolutely unbelievable! There has been a transformation to the sushi world, and it is called Aji. It is unquestionably the best sushi resturant in Newton. I have never had a bad piece of anything while dining at Aji''s. It is reasonable priced, clean, and the staff are most attentive. Never fear, the owners will stroll by just to make sure... More

This restaurant will not dazzle you with its newness or innovation but if you want a solid sushi dinner in a cozy restaurant with efficient, friendly service, this place will check all the boxes. The restaurant was very full the night we were there, definitely what you want to see in a sushi place. Prices were very fair and in... More
