Small place in the corner of a generic plaza that serves amazing noodle dishes and competent sushi at affordable prices. Can get crowded get there at opening or after the opening crowd is done (about hour and a half after opening).

I like to try new things when I travel. I saw this pop up on Yelp as one of the best places to try. Awesome Udon and sushi! We sat right in front of the sushi chef and had some great food. I got the Ajishin udon - awesome. The only challenge was one of our team members was a... More

Ajishin is always our first dining stop on every visit to see our kids who live nearby. The food is consistently good, and it has earned Ajishin as a well-deserved reputation as one of the best Japanese restaurants in the area. My son and I usually each get the largest sushi platter, while the rest of the group get suhi... More

We are loyal customers to Aijishin! Our usual dinner is splitting the Aijishin Udon into two bowls and splitting it between both of us. Then, at times, we just go for the sushi and we get the Spicy Tuna Roll, Spicy California Roll, Shrimp Tempura Roll, or the Salmon, Avocado and Cucumber Roll. Everything in the restaurant is delicious :)... More

Japanese sushi is good. But you can enjoy jjajang-MYEON and jjang-BBong as well. Especially when it is cold, jjang-BBONG is the menu I would recommend. You will be all sweaty but will feel on top of the world. The atmosphere is above the average and super clean.

Excellent authentic, fresh food with quick serving of order . Entire staff is friendly and helpful. Prices are excellent considering exceptional food quality and portions. Wait for seating should be expected BUT the long line you see indicates the food IS worth the wait. Absolutely DELICIOUS!!!

This is the best udon ever I had in my life. The variety is limited, but what is offered is excellent.

a small family type Japanese restaurant, serving all the basic Japanese dishes. My fav is the undo noodle, usually comes with the Today's special. It used to be nimble and warm place served by Japanese ladies. With its fast expansion and growingly busy business, the waitresses are most of non-Japanese, sort of feeling weird but it is okay.

I must admit that this review comes late out of sheer laziness in giving Ajishin their just praises! I love this place and the people who run it! I eat here 2x/week and I have for years now! They are the real deal. There is a reason why this place is packed ALL THE TIME. The food is just excellent... More

I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The food and service is always wonderful. The only downside is the restaurant is small so there is always wait (no reservations only call a heads) and those waiting can spill into the areas were people are eating.
