Aji Japanese Restaurant

Aji Japanese Restaurant has garnered praise from the local Hopkins Patch and Lakeshore Weekly News for its menu of colorful sushi rolls and hibachi-seared meats. Artful presentation underscores each concoction—rolls proudly bearing ruby-colored crowns of tobiko or sweet drizzles of eel sauce and hefty steaks and pan-seared seafood sizzling beneath bouquets of leafy garnishes. Imported Japanese beer and sake unite sushi with the flavors for which it was meant, much in the way milk complements cookies or peanut butter complements its secret soulmate, actual butter.

Inside the dining room, white dinnerware contrasts against rich wooden tables. Overhead, carved crimson lanterns dangle from the tin ceiling and golden bulbs illuminate delectable morsels and the gold-plated chopsticks of diners looking to impress their dates. During the warmer months, an outdoor patio mixes meals with fresh breezes.

    “Great sushi, very fresh, service was Out of This World! I love a restaurant that doesn't give you those cheap break in two chopsticks, they have Real Chopsticks :-) Servers are very knowledgeable and attentive. Someone who wasn't even my server clued me in on the Sunday Sushi special and let me know that I could take 169 south, even though I had to backtrack on the way there because 169 north was closed at crosstown. Will Definitely be coming back!”
