Not everyone knows Ajishin, but it is a hidden gem of Novi when it comes to Japanese food. Their sushi is always fresh and delicious. Ajishin is known for their Japanese udon noodles. Their curry rice or curry udon noodle is very good. You might...have to wait a bit to be seated but it’s well worth it.More

Had grilled fish and soba noodles. The grilled fish was excellent as usual, and the soba noodles were very good also. The staff is very polite.

Ajishin is offering a combination of Sushi al la cart + Noddles. The place is very busy and not too big - so expect to wait to be seated. It is worth waiting for - and the line moves quickly. On the Noodles side they...have 4-5 cold Soba based variation and 4-5 hot Udon variations. I went with the soba which was delicious and very affordable. From looking around Udon is a big favorite as well. The Sushi was not expensive and OK - i will not come here for it but if you really want something to go with your noodle dish it is an acceptable option at a very reasonable price. The service was good and quick - they want you out of there to make room for the next guest.More

Yes, the wait is long but totally worth it. We come here often because the noodles cannot be beaten. Last time we came 15 minutes before opening time and there was a line outside. Simple unassuming Japanese noddle house. The service is fast, they need...your table for the next customer lol If you are looking for an authentic Japanese experience this is the place. Just be patient.More

Great place to have Udon - best udon in Michigan. I wish there are more seats are available instead of waiting so long. That's why I gave 4 instead of 5.

Aji is well known for its sushi and udon. The curry rice is an insider’s secret!! Small restaurant with tight seating, and often a line out the door.

It's difficult to find sushi that measures up to the level of what you can get in Japan, but this small place in a strip mall in Novi, Michigan manages to do that. The fish is top quality, fresh and delicious. The noodle soup bowls...with soba noodles, fish and tempura vegetables are also great. Always a line-up, but worth waiting for.More

My husband and I were introduced to this restaurant by a couple of friends. It's "hole in the wall" but it's so good. And true enough, it did not disappoint. I love their hot udon noodles, perfect for a cold night, and the grilled salmon....They are so good! It's cheaper than most Japanese upscale restaurants I know. The place's setup is very authentic, kind of reminds me of those eating places in Japan. The server staff is very friendly. You just have to be prepared to stand in line for a long time as there are lots of people waiting in line outside. I took my friends with me for my second visit. And even them they love the food! It did not disappoint.More

I have been eating at Ajishin for over 20yrs and always impressed by the consistently good noodles and sushi. The speed is like you are transported to a busy Tokyo restaurant. The owner is a noodle master by trade but sushi is impressive as well....I have not had anything bad here.More
