After almost 20 years of eating at Aji Ichi with Jae and Francis I never thought I would go back… However there is a new look and new food and I highly recommend giving them a try. Sushi chef is excellent and the owner. Staff is excellent… It is hard to let go of old things… This change is great!

This place closed a few months ago. It is suppose to reopen but not sure when. They have new owners, so you need to call to see if it has reopened. Not sure if they will keep the name.

We read the good reviews and walked over from our hotel for our last night's meal. They had retired and it was closed! Sigh. But, luckily, there was Ninja Sushi and Tofu next door. It was reasonable, had good service and good food (my wife is Japanese).

We found this neighborhood gem about 3 blocks from our hotel. Prices are modest, selections are varied. Service was fast and professional. We four adults had chicken curry, beef teriyaki and two tempura. Everyone raved about their fresh delicious food. Will return if we are in San Bruno again

We were searching for a restaurant close to the SF airport / nearby area, and spotted Aji Ichi based on Tripadvisor & Yelp reviews. Were glad to do so, as the place isn't the one that you would just accidentally run into (as a tourist). Four of us ordered chicken & beef teriyaki, tempura and sushi, which all tasted excellent....

I was raised on Jae and Francis's friendship and food and even though I no longer live in the Bay Area, every time I return there I make the pilgrimage to see them and get my usual teriyaki and tempura comibination meal. Over 20 years it remains consistently tasty augmented by the sushi bar and other dishes. I always send... More

I've been going here off and on for years and the food has always been good, consistent, and very reasonably priced. Dinner combos are my favorite. Great for take home.

Went with 3 others and could not have been more pleased. Ordered the beef teriyaki and the steak was tender and the sauce was very tasty. It came with some kind of soup (?) and it was delicious. Service was great and the place was clean. Everyone was friendly. All in our group had an excellent meal and the prices... More

This is a good Mom and Pop kind of restaurant nothing too fancy, friendly atmosphere, good service and good food. Well worth the price. Would stop again on my next trip to San Bruno.
