The food and the service were good. It's an easy and nice neighborhood restaurant. There are plenty of seating, and the noise level is reasonable. I recommend it.

All the food at Aji exceeded my expectation for a Japanese/sushi restaurant in Newton. While you won't find dishes that rival the best sushi restaurants in Boston, Aji delivers solidly all around. The service is generally good, but servers can be inattentive.

We dined here on a weekday night around 8:30 pm. The restaurant was nearly full, always a good sign, but we were seated in 5 minutes. The menu is highly varied. We had sushi, yaki soba, spring rolls, vegetable tempura, tofu with veggie soup, and a fish entree. All were superb. Service was excellent, not rushed. The dining area is... More

Went for lunch. Unfortunately the place was empty. pretty standard suburban sushi restaurant. We all had lunch specials which were inexpensive ($9-$12). The sushi was of a very high standard. very fresh. certainly adequate servings. Great service

Four of us had a great lunch here. Seafood fried rice was superb. So was the vegetarian gyoza, edamame and the sushi. Quick and friendly service. Reasonable prices. Recommend highly.

Blind luck turned up this delicious food minutes away from the commuter rail stop in a place you would not expect to find quality sushi. Aji now on my list of places to visit again. Had the best maki I ever tasted. The ambience is pleasant and one can talk without being competition with the soothing , low volume background... More

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.
