Walking on the Pearl Street Mall, getting hungry and eenie, meanie, minie, mo and fingers pointed to Aji. What a great, random pick. Restaurant was in an old renovated building with wonderful architectural details to which someone devoted a lot of thought. Service was great, pleasant wait-staff and a reasonably diverse menu. Well worth a stop for lunch.

Enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Shared tasty and nicely presented chips and guacamole.Then two of us had Seared Sea Scallops - delicious, one had chicken with coconut rice - good, and one had the Churrasco - sweet corn soup then skewered beef with side dishes - you need a good appetite to tackle that one, but very tasty.

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
