The food at Aji is good but in an attempt to be Latin American, they seem tottery to put to many flavors together at one time. The primary "taste" appears to be Mexican but pairing jalapeño with delicate white fish kind of creates confusion. The...More

Very nice restaurant -- sort of fusion Latin restaurant. Upscale food but quite inexpensive for the quality. The Moqueca -- a Brazilian seafood stew -- was superb, whole trout was very good. Don't bring kids, they'll be the only ones there.

Had pozole, really excellent, deeply flavorful and two tacos that cost $8, one Elk Chorizo, and the other pork. Each came on a single tortilla, and the sauce made it moist and falling apart – not a good way to eat tacos... Of more import,...More

My husband and I went to Aji for dinner about a year ago and thought it was decent, but just had a Happy Hour there that knocked our socks off. The spicy strawberry mojitos are the best I've ever tasted. We had four different tacos...More

I had two meals at Aji - dinner and brunch. At Aji you can also order off the Leaf menu. While Aji is a carnivore's dream (Elk tacos- ?), Leaf's menu is vegan. A bit of an odd couple, but it works. It was great...More

The food taste and quality was mediocre. THE SERVICE WAS SLOW and POOR. The wait staff appeared depressed and anemic. The cost was too high in proportion to the quality and quantity of food. They have a good location which is the only explanation for...More

The best part of this restaurant is that you can order from the Leaf menu (vegetarian restaurant next door). My husband ordered from the Aji menu and his food was greasy, cold, and heavy. My portobello burger from Leaf was fresh, one of the best...More

We visited Aji for Happy Hour and sat on the patio. The outdoor seating is nice and it's a great spot to order small plates and share with everyone. My personal favorite was the barbacoa taco.

Aji is proud to serve cuisine inspired by the rich cultures of Latin America. Enjoy a refreshing Mojito on our street side patio, sample one of our fresh ceviche, or indulge in a classic Argentinian steak or Brazilian Feijoada.
