Really everything two of us had during a great happy hour time on an outside table just off of Pearl Street was delicious (prices $3-7): nicely fried brussels sprout leaves; savory chick pea salad (off of their adjacent Leaf vegetarian restaurant menu) with arugula, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, feta and a tahini vinaigrette; duck barbecue taco -- this was special delicious,...

Had the $3.00 fish tacos and the Argentinean wine. Perfect! Sat outside, food came quick, and the food was perfect for what we needed.

Great raspberry mojito and wonderful tapas menu at happy hour. They even had tostones ( fried plantains) which were great and mofongo -- although that particular offering was just so-so. We enjoyed it so much that we came back a second day for lunch - not realizing that their non/ happy hour menu is different. All was very tasty (... More

My husband and I visited Aji at 10am on a Saturday- right after it opened. We were seated on the patio and our beverages arrived promptly. My chai was fantastic! Our food took a little longer than expected to come out but the flavor was worth the wait. My veggie enchiladas were tasty and cheesy (and a bit spicy too... More

We went there for happy hour / dinner with friends and chose a selection of tapas, which were all amazing and had an excellent price. I recommend the bacon-wrapped dates and the ceviche.

Dining at Aji was a great experience as I had no idea what to expect after it was described to me. It is billed as a Latin American focussed menu, but I found it to be much more. The service was excellent and it was a model of what team service should be. The food is divinely spiced and well... More
