Fun place

My only complaint is the rolls we ate kind of tasted the same. We had a Passion, Mango-something, and a Demon roll. Also, they fell apart when you try to pick them up. But they tasted fresh, the drinks were good, everything was solid. I'd come back.

A very enchanting Japanese restaurant. The food is incredibly delicious and fresh. The waiter we had explained the dishes with such detail that each was a mouth watering experience. I recommend this for a great romantic night out or group gathering.

We go a couple of times a year because my wife loves it so much. I'm not a sea food lover so while the menu is limited for me but I always find something and it is always good. She has sampled most of the options with sushi in the area and saysnone comare to Aji 53. RECOMMENDED.

I visited Aji twice by myself in recent weeks for lunch and each time I was very happy with the food, which was fresh and well presented, the decor, which was sleek, stylish a bright due to the full wall of windows facing the street, and the service, which was attentively provided by well dressed staff.

I have eaten at Aji many many times since they opened. I enjoyed their American Dream especially. That is why I was so disappointed a couple weeks ago when I ate there again. It did not taste fresh and the drinks were not good at all. I hope they realize the difference they made are not good at all. I... More

This is one of the only sushi restaurants I will visit. There is no comparison some of my favorite rolls are the amazing tuna, and bayshore but really everything is great.

Beautiful place, amazing food but my biggest complaint is that there are a lot of waitstaff. Normally that would be a good thing, but in this case they all seem to get in each other's way. I've been there twice and both times I was seated by the kitchen, which gave me full view of how annoyed the waitstaff were... More
