The place offers nice and cozy atmosphere with a genuine Japanese feeling.
The guests will be welcomed with hot towels in Japanese styles, the menu is filled with various types of food ranging from fresh sashimi, kushikatsu which are meat on sticks, salads and etc. I also noticed the hotpot that can be cooked on the table from the menu.

The best part is the fresh oysters imported from Miyagi province in Japan, the taste is divine with a firm texture and that sweetness of the oyster combine with the yuzu ponzu sauce is the best feeling. The oysters are really refreshing and the best to have on Friday night after a long tiring week. They also serve exotic traditional Japanese dishes like wasabi tako and mentaiko(sea urchin) jellyfish, they are served with fresh cucumber sticks. Cold noodles(somen) is also another refreshing dish, the noodle itself is a fine noodle and the soup has good aromatic flavor.

Their service is also of good quality, they offer refillable hot/cold green tea which is refilled continuously. The staff look welcoming and always like to help.

Overall the best value when it comes to quality material comparing to the price. Always happy to be here, they also give member card to collect rewards with no expiry date.

My boyfriend and I went there for dinner. We were thinking about a light dinner, and Aji didn't disappoint.

Our first pick was the dried-fish rice bowl with fresh wasabi on top. Thanks to the pungent lump of wasabi, freshly made from wasabi root, the bowl wasn't easy to eat at first. But every component did go well together, the rice, the dried fish, the fresh wasabi, the pickled vegetables, and the soup. This menu is unique to this restaurant, so it is worth at least trying it once.

Our second pick was the salt ramen. Vegetables and sweet corns cut through the salty soup. The pork and the noodle were just right.

I recommend this place for quick, authentic, Japanese meals. There are something for everyone, including grills, sashimi, rice bowls, ramens, etc. Most individual dish is reasonably-priced in the few-hundred-baht range. The service is fine, and the seating is semi-private as each table is equipped with a small curtain hung half way down, which makes it good for a quick business lunch too.

The friendly greeting by the Japanese chef on our way out was a plus. Love it.

5 adults got together for lunch. We all have different liking. This is a spot to be.

We initially thought of getting the New Years course but decided to go with lunch menu plus something to share.

Our hit was Cesar salad. Huge! It came so fast that it was our perfect starter. Three of us had side salad that came with lunch set. So we added some veggies into the bowl again and share some more.

I had Japanese style hamburger set. It was so big, satisfying and yummy that I forgot to take a picture of it. One of us had Kaisen set (sashimi bowl set) and was very generous.

We reserved the room. No charge for it. 4 seater but 5 of us comfortably settled in. Service was kind and timely. All dishes appear to be reasonably priced.

Highly recommend it here for the party full of different taste bud.

A nice Restaurant to grab a quick Japanese set lunch. The seafood is fresh and prices are reasonable. The sushi set costs only 530 Baht. Service is excellent.

This is a great spot for midrange authentic Japanese sushi/sashimi place. Mostly frequented by Japanese. It is advisable to book ahead. They also serve tempura, many kind of salad, a variety of sake, and even ramen. Good quality, efficient and just pleasant eatery.
