The Ishtar was a good night! Casey our waitress was so informative and nice. She suggested the Dragon Punch and The White Peach Mojito and both were delicious drinks! My Miso salad started the meal just right...then our appetizers were lobster brusque and fried calamari! Both were fresh and excellent! I ordered the salmon teriyaki bento box which came with...

Rolls are amazing and so many to choose from. Not your typical run of the mill. Fish is super fresh and go for the unusual you won't be disappointed. We've been here several times and never had a bad dish. We keep trying new things and each is better than the last. Huge portions and fairly well priced.

Aji 53 is in a perfect location & is definitely a great spot to go on a date or take a bunch of your friends/family out for a birthday or graduation celebration. The bar lights up & there are multiple seating options. The sushi is good as well. The staff can be a little sassy at times. I would say... More

We go there about 5x a year and they have never disappointed. Always very fresh food, excellent service and reasonable prices. It's got a NY atmosphere. Very trendy.

This is my favorite Asian restaurant. We have gone for dinner lectures and pleasure. Their food is phenomenal. Presentations are spectacular. Love it every time I get to go.

My husband and I go to Aji almost on a weekly basis for our date night. We're never disappointed - the fish is always fresh and the prices are reasonable compared to other Japanese restaurants in the area. The waiters/waitresses are friendly and attentive. Definitely a must try if looking for good food and ambiance.

Sushi was super fresh and silky. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was that it was very loud at the table that they put 7 of us at. It was hard to have a conversation. We were celebrating a birthday.

This was once the top Japanese restaurants in the area. The last few times I've eaten there it was just ok. I did enjoy a fun cooking class there.

We were in a rush to have a quick good try at this restaurant and we were pleased! The waitress was very nice and happy and didn't mess up my daughter's Sushi order...our fave spot got kicked to the curb...too many mistakes. So now this will be our new hangout spot to get some Sushi together! My daughter had crunchy... More

I've eaten here many times with many people. It has always been good . Service is excellent and you're in the heart of Bayshore. It doesn't break the wallet and it's hip cool as well. Just go already.
