I seriously hate this place. I have been here four times and 3 of the times have been a bad experience. This last time was so bad, we will never be back. Price is outrageous for the amount of food you get, and the food quality is terrible. We got it to go and when we got home the food... More

This was our first visit and having visited other South American restaurants on our travels we probably were expecting a similar great experience. Not so!! We would have to say the food along with the presentation is below average. The service was only slightly better although the waiter brought us the wrong salad. As far as ambience, there is none....

My husband and I came here for our one year anniversary. We wanted to try something new but not too adventurous so as to not risk disliking the meal. We started with smoothies for our drinks-- he had blueberry and I had mango. The blueberry was good, but the mango was incredible! I couldn't resist asking the owner how it... More

Mediocre food, mediocre service. I applaud them for having a wide variety of vegetarian dishes though. I ordered ceviche, one of my favorites, and while it wasn't bad, it was a little too fishy for my taste. The flan, however, was brilliant. It was the most dense, delicious flan I've ever had. The service was just ok. The waiter was... More

I had been impatiently waiting to stop by since I found out Aji existed. I've spent time in Bolivia, and was hoping that Peruvian food was similar enough to make me feel like I was on a little vacation. When we arrived, there were no other diners, which made me slightly nervous. The place started to fill up while we... More

I had heard about this restaurant for awhile but had never tried it until yesterday. It was very good food... somewhat along the lines of Mexican food but really not the same... a unique taste and style. I enjoyed the food but the portions were not real big especially for the price which was a little pricey for lunchtime.

This place has amazing potential. The food is just like in Peru and the meal was fantastic, they even have Inca Kola. Even though my experience was nearly ruined by the waitress who spent more time on her cell phone than she did serving. I would give this place another try.

I tend to enjoy interesting flavours. I will eat here any day over Mexican food. The dish I ate was tofu with red onions and lime. It was fresh and tasty. There are more interesting dishes I would like to try. The prices were decent.

Found Aji today and enjoyed a great change of pace in food fare. Food is good and a pleasant atmosphere, with a reasonable price. We tried several different things and tasted off each others' plates - not everything was wonderful, but all was well made and generally tasty. Today Tacu Tacu was my favorite. We'll explore alternatives the next time... More

This is the only Peruvian restaurant in Chattanooga, and is a great choice for unique, authentic South American food. Good food, good service, reasonable price.
