Always make this a stop when traveling to or through the Springs. Fresh and very good presentation. The Academy location is a little disorganized on the ordering end of things when ordering Take Out.

The food is delicious and always displayed very nicely. Good service, friendly staff. The staff seem to assist each other as we are always accomodated during our visits. This restaurant is steadily busy but we never have had to wait too long even when the restaurant is packed.

I drive past several sushi places to go to AI. Better and cheaper than most places I've been. The ambiance isn't anything special though.

We ordered the Teriyaki Chicken & Beef combination. Had a bit of sake and tea with it. Was delicious!

The waiter was terrible. Low energy, melancholy, inpersonable, and slow. We waited over 10 min for our drinks, and any other request we had unless we went to find him. The hibachi chef, Mike, was fantastic though. He was friendly, entertaining, and a true chef. He made the meal worth it. Our sushi was okay, but nothing special. We would... More

This restaurant is local for us and we enjoy their sushi and warm and friendly hospitality. Everything is fresh and beautifully presented. We go there frequently for special family occasions.

As a sushi lover, I've tried almost every sushi restaurant in Colorado Springs. Ai is consistently the best in the city. Lots of options and reasonably priced. Atmosphere could be improved. Good service. Great sushi.

We enjoyed our meal a AI, but it's no different than any other hibachi restaurant. The filet was very tender and had a nice flavor; hibachi chicken was average. The soup appetizer had a very unusual taste--not sure exactly what it was made from, but I found it inedible. Don't go out of your way to get to this restaurant,... More

Light crispy not-greasy tempura, beautiful sushi and sashimi, great lunch specials, and excellent dinners. I think I've tried every Japanese place in the Springs, and noplace else even comes close to Ai's quality and friendliness

Ai serves up sushi as good as any place I've been to. I tend to gravitate to the specialty rolls, since they're unique to a certain chef. Spicy tuna wrapped in avocado, topped with hot sauce should not be missed.
