Aji Sushi Bar served our group of four without a reservation, with just a quick 5-10 minute wait. I was really impressed that out of everything we tried, there were no misfires: the tuna and steak tataki were perfectly sauced and flavourful, the spiciness not...overwhelming the steak's flavour. Every single one of the house special rolls was pretty, delicious, and well textured. Recommended!More

We were driving by and impulsively stopped here for dinner. I'm not typically a huge sushi fan, but everyone around us seemed to be eating mostly sushi, so we decided to "Rome It" and let our waiter be our guide. We ended up with several...spicy, crunchy tuna rolls, a few eel,,shrimp, baby caviar and sweet potato rolls along with an assortment of sashimi. Everything was melt in our mouths tender, fresh and for someone like me, a game changer for my fondness for sushi. Our waiter was sweet, attentive and efficient, leaving us to chat without interruption except to check in and refill our saki. It's so great to see a restaurant owner who cares about their customers, the cleanliness of their restaurant, and the quality of their food. We will be back to try the rest of what's on the menu soon. Arigatōgozaimashita!!More

My first visit to Aji was very good and I will return on a regular basis. While this isn't the closest sushi restaurant to my house, I thought it was worth the extra distance. With my teenage daughter, we ordered a variety of ala carte...options. The rice was done well - good texture and proportion. In addition to the sushi, we had two maki rolls. Shrimp Tempura roll was so-so and probably a poor idea anyway. The rest of our meal was very good. The miso soup was delicious. The restaurant was full but the wait was minimal.More

We had a very good, early dinner at Aji Sushi Bar. Service was excellent; portions were large; everything was well prepared. Miso soup was good; salad nice. The shrimp and vegetable tempura was excellent; unaju was very good; the maki combo was outstanding. We'll definitely...go back!More

Let me start by saying the fish was great and it was very fresh. The pieces I ordered after the meal were terrific Uni, Ama Ebi and Hamach. It was the Sushi / Sashimi lunch I ordered that was dissapointing. In that combo lunch there...was 4 sushi pieces (2 tuna and 2 salmon) and 4 sashimi pieces (2 salmon and 2 tuna). Wow, that was the "Chef's choice" for the sashimi? This was the first time ever in 30 years of eating sushi where I got a combination dish that consisted of only 2 types of fish. The chef couldn't of thrown in a piece of spanish mackeral or hamachi to mix it up a little? And a lunch special with 8 pieces and no California roll at $12.95? It's too bad they decided to ignore me mentioning I was disappointed with the saushi/Sashimi lunch. That is why I wrote this review.More

Its become a tradition for us to meet a friend here when we visit. Its good but not great. Its very much like so many sushi bars i have visited in suburban malls around the country. Efficient, friendly and good with pricing to match. If...you are in the neighborhood, its a place to pop in to but not seek outMore

We eat at Aji often, it is the best sushi place in the Newton area. The food is always fresh and attractively presented.The sushi hand-rolls are inventive and delicious. The tuna tataki and steamed shumai are favorite appetizers. The sashimi sampler is much more generous...than the usual appetizer, as there are nearly a dozen pieces of fish in the dish. The décor is pleasant and the service is OK. This is our go-to Japanese restaurant.More

Not a dive but not clean enough to be a really nice restaurant, which is a shame because the sushi is good. They need to really clean the sticky tables, polish the floor, buy some better napkins and give the place a lick of paint....Then it would be worthy of the meal that isn't exactly cheap once you add it all up. Great tempura and dumplings as well. I hope the owners can invest just a tiny bit more elbow grease to make this a must-go-to place.More
