Nice ambiance with good food choices. Great Sushi

The menu here offers a lot of choices and the Sushi is well-done. The service is great too. Sushi combinations are better value for money and Chef choices are generally good.

I've worked for Japanese companies for a long time and eaten at many fine sushi restaurants all around the world, including Japan. Ajishin is one of the best. This place gets PACKED so time your arrival.

Ajishin is the real deal, a gem serving authentic Japanese udon and soba noodles, soups, sushi, and daily specials that attracts people from all over town. This is where the local Japanese crowd likes to eat at and it is always packed. The food is always excellent and the service is great. They are very nice people and I eat... More

My wife enjoys any of the soba noodle dishes while I prefer fish. While you are waiting for your main course I suggest the sushi. Did I mention waiting? Be prepared twait a long time. Unless you get there when they open it will be a long wait. But it is worth it.

It's always crowded in this little restaurant and everyone seems to enjoy the food immensely. But it is not my thing. I am not familiar with sushi that is authentic as they serve and feel funny ordering something I don't know what it is. the servers don't speak very good English who should be able to explain the items on...

Its a nice dinner date restaurant and also a very reasonable rate lunch restaurant. Not sure what the french flavor thing they say is all about? Service has also been good and parking is... More

This place is fantastic. Every dish we had was as good or better than what we have eaten in Japan. And, the price was so reasonable. The total bill came to $36 for the two of us. The waitress was very good and more than willing to split a bowl of Ajishin udon noodles between my husband and I. The... More

About 15 tables & sushi bar. Not a huge restaurant. Very busy during lunch time! Sorry, they don't take reservations. Because the service is fast & food is prepared fast too so the wait time isn't that bad. The Service: Many staffs on duty, very efficient! Menu, hot tea, ready to take order within a few minutes!!
