Not a dive but not clean enough to be a really nice restaurant, which is a shame because the sushi is good. They need to really clean the sticky tables, polish the floor, buy some better napkins and give the place a lick of paint. Then it would be worthy of the meal that isn't exactly cheap once you add...

The portions are generous, the quality is very high. The Hamachi was the star of the dish, with a close second of the Toro. I wish that i had taken a picture of the presentation. It was far better than the photo in the menu.

Whenever I am in Boston, I always make a point to visit Aji for at least one meal. I often bring friends or colleagues with me, and everyone has always had high praise for the food. The fish is cut into good-sized portions; the preparation and presentation is fantastic; and the wide variety of interesting (and tasty!) house rolls will... More

We liked Aji Sushi Bar. I wouldn't say this is the most tasty Japanese food I've ever had -- and for some reason the restaurant seemed a little noisy. The wait staff was efficient, courteous, but a little cool. Nonetheless, I can well imagine other people giving this an "A" rather than my grade -- a "B."
