I was in town for business and wanted sushi. I pulled up the local restaurant ratings sites, and this place consistenly was rated as one of the best in the area. When I arrived, I had to double check... its an unassuming restaurant with minimal face located in a dingy strip mall. The inside of the restaurant is clearly budget... More

I did not like the 30 minutes wait for a table. From there on, everything is perfect. The waitresses so kind with us. Food options unlimited. My numbermone favorite is the Ajishin Soup, which really works even in a summer evening. I cannot help going back again and again to this place

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!!!

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.
