I have been to Aozora many times and it has never disappointed. The quality of ingredients is outstanding with nice size portions on the entrees. Udon stir fry is so tasty, I could eat it everyday.

This BYOB on Bloomfield Ave is a sure bet for fresh OVERSIZED SUSHI. The preparation is "different" from the norm as the perfectly sliced fish is of a robust size with the rice being on the minimalistic side. the system works well if you are well versed with sticks... The chefs special rolls are better than the usual suspects with... More

I've gone here twice. The sushi is interesting. The rolls are really big! REALLY big...you get a lot of fish in them, which is great. The servers are nice enough and the food is really yummy. My only complaint is that it is really pricey. I mean...you do get a lot of fish and big rolls, but that's just because... More

My husband and I along with my 6 month old went here just to try it out. For starters they wouldn't sit us in a booth because they claimed it was a four seater even though 2 people were sitting in a booth next to us. So I had no where to sit my baby and her car seat. We... More

I find the food to be just okay, and definitely too expensive for what you get. The sushi is mostly fusion and a bit annoying to order but it is high quality and tasty. The entrees are over priced and just satisfactory, I have family that enjoys coming here but I rather be elsewhere.

The food was fabulous. Loved the duck appetizer and special dumplings. The sashimi was wonderful. They had great desserts. Service was excellent. This is well worth the cost. It is a definite "go back to" place

Stopped by here based on a friend's recommendation and was very pleased with the food. I had a couple different varieties of sushi off the menu. The food was very fresh and made perfectly as I have had some so-so sushi over the years. The decor was great and the atmosphere even better. Would highly recommend this for anyone who... More

Aozora is my go-to place for takeout sushi in Montclair. The quality of the fish is consistently good, and the menu offers a nice selection of old favorites and more innovative combinations. The only thing on the menu that I really wouldn't recommend is the "King of Kimchee" appetizer -- less-than-prime sashimi offcuts, mixed with cashews and wrapped in a... More

Aozora is the place to go when you want sushi and your partner wants a steak. They do both and do them beautifully. The quality is always excellent and the atmosphere attractive. But don't go if you are trying to make a move or a show -- go when you have plenty of time to enjoy it because the service... More
