“Great food,reasonable price. Sucky waitress”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

Aji Noren is one of the best japanese restaurant in pg, no denying about it. Great food eventhough the place is not that big but it was ok. The only thing that's lacking is the services. The waitresses are not friendly. I find it so difficult for them to explain to us whats on the menu as they expect us to understand japanese. Surprisingly the foreign workers are really good and they keep askinv do we need somemore tea or not. Seriously the owner of aji noren,your foods are awesome everyone knows it but please get some attitude check on your waitresses. Dont only give friendly,warm greetings to the japanese and for local like us theres no excuses on being rude.

“Found the taste of Yaki Gyoza”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Well, i'm Yaki Gyoza enthusiasts, when i explore New Japanese Restaurant, i'll order Yaki Gyoza as a appetizer....this is my second time visit Aji Noren, because of the Yaki Gyoza recall my memory when i travel to japan, the taste is almost the same as Japan, gyoza wrapper is just nice not so thick and inside the stuffed taste fresh!! however the only things is the sauce, the vinegar a bit sour and it had over take the freshness taste of Gyoza. So i just have the Gyoza without any sauce.
Kimchi Udon, the taste is good if you like sour and the portion is large, can share among couple.
Can't remember what Ramen that i order, but just want to highlight that the Ramen still need to improve because the meat slightly thick and need time to chew, although soup are the main role of Ramen, but the meat and noodle is playing an importance role as well.
Conclusion, the food is not bad and the importance are the price is reasonable and affordable !! i'll visit again for the Gyoza!! ^_^

“Reasonable Price”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Reasonable price and taste is quite good, can afford by all range of people.
Busy and Noisy Environment just like Japan Izakaya(居酒屋) which is not suitable for me.
If you like Izakaya Feel then this is the place for you !

“Outstanding Value, Home Cooked Flavors”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

The set lunches start at RM15, portions are generous and favors very good. A bit salty for our taste, but perfect for stretching with loads of rice.

I ordered the teppanyaki salmn and my daughter the chicken Teppan. The set is served with rice, miso sop, pickles, cabbage salad and fruit (watermelon).

Unpretentious, comfortable, and a gem we will return to time and again.
