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.

Consistently excellent sushi! Ahi53 soups are incredibly good! A must stop for lunch when in Bay Shore.

WORST SERVICE EVER!!! They told us a table would be 30 min. 45 minutes later they offered us a seat at the bar. Took almost 1.5 hours to get seated at a proper table. It then felt like they were rushing us out out. When we took our time, they then began ignoring us.

Aji has the best sushi. We are a bit older than the normal clientele, so it is not a comfortable place for us to enjoy dinner and conversation. While there are a number of booths in the bar area, most of the seating consists of a row of smaller tables lined up very close to one another. We often feel... More
