Was in the area for business and looking for a low key sushi dinner and based on the reviews tried Aji. Overall was happy an above average sushi place. I ordered miso , edamame, and sashimi.

The portions are generous, the quality is very high. The Hamachi was the star of the dish, with a close second of the Toro. I wish that i had taken a picture of the presentation. It was far better than the photo in the menu.

Whenever I am in Boston, I always make a point to visit Aji for at least one meal. I often bring friends or colleagues with me, and everyone has always had high praise for the food. The fish is cut into good-sized portions; the preparation and presentation is fantastic; and the wide variety of interesting (and tasty!) house rolls will... More

We liked Aji Sushi Bar. I wouldn't say this is the most tasty Japanese food I've ever had -- and for some reason the restaurant seemed a little noisy. The wait staff was efficient, courteous, but a little cool. Nonetheless, I can well imagine other people giving this an "A" rather than my grade -- a "B."

The food and the service were good. It's an easy and nice neighborhood restaurant. There are plenty of seating, and the noise level is reasonable. I recommend it.

All the food at Aji exceeded my expectation for a Japanese/sushi restaurant in Newton. While you won't find dishes that rival the best sushi restaurants in Boston, Aji delivers solidly all around. The service is generally good, but servers can be inattentive.
