When looking for a place to have lunch in Brighton, that was within walking distance from an appointment, we happened on Aja Noodle. Upon entering I noticed an open kitchen with no Asians working. Immediately I was doubtful. I ordered the special, Orange Chicken. I have lived in Asia and was expecting the usual, sweet, greasy version of Asian food.... More

You can actually hear the "Wok" sound. Not many restaurant that you can actually hear the "Wok" sound. The price is reasonable and the waitresses are very helpful. After your meal at this restaurant, you can walk to "abbott's frozen custard". It is just a minute away from walking.

What a surprise. A friend told us they love this place and my wife said a co-worker dines there often. Convenient parking, open dining room and kitchen were nice. Our lovey server Amanda was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Her Saki parings to our menu selections were spot on. Thank you for a super night out.

I visited Aja Noodle with a friend on her suggestion. I had been there in the past and was never thrilled with the place. I'm still not. It has a feeling of a large cafeteria to me, noisy and chaotic. With so many Asian places in town it feels like a poor try at Americanized Asian fusion. The next time... More

Fun little Asian restaurant specializing in noodle and rice dishes. Generous portions with lots of fresh veggies. Enhance your dishes with chicken, beef, shrimp, or tofu. Wine and beer available.

The food is good and hot but the air temp in the place is always too cold for me. I enjoy the food it is spicy and savory. Service is excellent and the value is great.

Aja Noodle has a very pleasant and comfortable atmosphere, the staff is friendly and efficient, the menu has great selections - and the food is delicious! There are often coupons in the newspaper.

I have been going to the 12 corners location for years and have always enjoyed it. After moving away for two years I went back for dinner on a recent trip. It was not anything like I remembered it. We felt like we were rushed the entire time. No dessert, no coffee, just the bill as quick as possible. I... More

I’ve been to the Aja location at 12 Corners a number of times over the years. The food is always consistently good, not anything to write home about and probably not “authentic”, but I’ve certainly never had a meal there that I didn’t enjoy. (Note though that nothing on the menu marked as “spicy” is actually spicy. At least they... More

We loved the various noodle dishes we tried from various ethnic cuisines. You can get purely vegetarian dishes with tofu and gluten-free meals. This restaurant is a big step up from the typical noodle chain place.
