What happend!?? They use to have the best sushi!!

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... read 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.

I have been going to this restaurant over the past several years but stopped going awhile ago due to the noise level. Unfortunately that has not changed. The disco type music and loud noise level do not overcome the average to above average food.the sushi and sashimi lunch is very good and my friends had bento boxes. The fish is... More

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

A very friendly staff, specialty rolls and two great bars give Aji 53 my high rating. Try the Sake Bomb or a Lemon drop.

Went here for dinner recently and enjoyed the experience. Our waitress was very helpful and made some very nice dinner recommendations. Two menu items worth noting were the Rock Shrimp Tempura and the American Dream roll, which is a roll with rock shrimp tempura inside, topped w. spicy lobster & spicy kani served w. spicy creamy sauce. Both items were... More

I love their food, the tuna tartar is bliss. Their sushi is incredibly fresh and delicious. My only complaint is how loud it tends to get inside..

I had been here with friends a few years ago, and loved it. The same group returned because of that memorable experience. Our food was good, not great. We all felt we had made a mistake ordering the set menu, instead of ala carte. However, the food was not as much of an issue as the service. Our questions about... More

The quality of the food and drinks is high, and prices are too, although not too much higher than comparable restaurants. Some people will really enjoy the buzz and decor at this place. Personally, I find it a little too loud, and if you come at a prime time you'll need reservations. Don't get me wrong, you will enjoy a... More

Hands down the best sushi restaurant on Long Island. You can't go wrong with any of the signature rolls and the oysters as an appetizer. The atmosphere is great for an evening out with friends or your significant other.
