Diner Reviews
  • "Great food and reasonably priced when compared to a chain. It was our first visit and we will likely be back again soon. Waiter was great!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "A colleague and I enjoyed lunch here. It was not very busy and we received our food in a timely manner. The entrees were good and it was adequate portions. The atmosphere and decor are nice. It was quiet and not very busy. I've been here at night when it's busy, but appreciated being able to get my meal quickly during lunch hours due to time constraints of the day."

  • "I was looking for a place to have my birthday dinner however it doesn't quite fit the ambiance I'm looking for that occasion. Love the restaurant and the food was great but I was looking for a more upbeat environment. I'll come back again definitely."

  • "I went to Aja on a Friday with my husband. We were there fairly early at 7:30 because the place is huge and was barely filled. I honestly had a pretty nice time except for the sushi roll I ordered came out wrong. I got a totally different roll than I ordered...I still ate it without mentioning anything to the server because I was hungry, didn't feel like waiting and didn't want to upset things. The look of the place is cool so I would give it another try and hope that I get what I ordered this time."

  • "We went to Aja recently with my family for my birthday. We were given a nice corner table so that the kids could be themselves. Service levels were very good. Food was of the normal high quality. Energy gets progressively better as the evening wears on...Highly recommend this place for largish groups and folks interested in good Asian food in a fabulous ambience"

  • "I made a 5:00 reservation and we were seated promptly. The restaurant had just opened so we were the first ones there. Our waitress was super friendly and everything we ordered was delicious and served fresh within minutes. We were pleasantly surprised at how quickly our food arrived. Highly recommend the Surf and Turf sushi roll and ask for the Jimmy sauce ce to dip it in. Its delicious! Highly recommend this restaurant and will be back."

Their menu has lots of delicious options and their sushi menu is fantastic! I'm ALWAYS satisfied when I come to eat here because the quality of food is always outstanding. Plus the atmosphere and service is wonderful. All around, it's a great place to dine out and I WILL continue to come back again and again."

  • "I read several reviews on its Monday night sushi special. My experience was fantastic! It started with the valet service. The attendants were very professional and courtesy. The host staff was very friendly and made our party of five feel very welcome. Our waiter was very knowledge of the diverse menu and made recommendations to enhance our experience from signature drinks and wine pairing. We ordered several chef sushi specials, and they were great. Their sushi special is the best deal in town!"

  • "I enjoyed my Valentine's Day outing at Aja Restaurant. It is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta. The Crunchee Roll was very good, but the entree' wasn't as good as it has been in the past. It tasted like the chicken lo mein wasn't seasoned enough. It seemed like our the entrees came out immediately after the appetizer and things were kind of rushed. I know it was busy because of the holiday though. Our waiter was very attentive and kind. I'm sure I'll return to Aja for a nice meal."

  • "Great food, regular menu available as well as Prix fix. Servie just a tad slow but given the crowd, not unexpected, and really very well done. Food was flavorful, with great variation. Has a nice corner booth so ideal for our evning! Definitely going back."

  • "I went for my birthday celebration, made an original reservation for 12 the day of I ended up having 18. Aja was more than happy to assist me and allow me to increase my number, and because it was Sunday I didn't have set a minimum for each person to pay because of the 15+ guest. They were really nice and actually were ready to seat us not to long after I got there. Waiter were amazing, only thing I had to introduce myself to the waiter because I don't remember hearing him greet us, but other than that the service and food was awesome, I even received a little birthday dessert! Awesome Experience!"
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Everything was good except the server forgot to bring us one of the dishes we ordered. No big issue, however, I thought we would have been offered a free drink because of the mistake but that didn't happen. Otherwise, I'll be back!"
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "Had reservations; my entire party was on time. Had to wait over 30 minutes to be seated. Several same size and larger parties seated ahead of mine. Very disappointed in the wait. When I made reservations, I indicated this was a special celebration. My party was squeezed around a tiny round table right by the kitchen entrance. Not happy! Food was good as well as the waiter."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I came here for a holiday party last month, and decided to come back for dinner because we were so impressed with the sushi they served at the party. It was just as amazing this time around! First off, the service was perfect. Our host was super friendly and helpful, and our waitress was attentive, but not overbearing. We ordered the lettuce wraps as an appetizer, and they were delicious! The drinks were great too! Then I ordered the wonton soup (which comes in a massive bowl and is filled with shrimp dumplings...delicious!) and my boyfriend got the Bon Jovi roll, which he said is his favorite sushi in the whole city! Obviously, we'll be back!"
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "Having read other reviews, we were worried about service. Totally wrong! Host & hostess were friendly, seated us in a great spot, handed us menus & told us our server would be right over & enjoy! Within seconds, Seth was at our table! He's an outstanding waiter, made a few suggestions for drinks & food, plus gave more detail about our order. He was patient as we took our time ordering several items & sharing all our dishes. We focused mostly on sushi & small plates, with everything being very good! The sushi rolls were creative & tasty, and our other dishes were very good as well. As we left, we were met by the manager asking if everything was to our satisfaction. The restaurant is fun & lively, and we will definitely be returning!"

  • "Came here for the Monday night sushi special ($5 rolls, $1 nigiri). For the price, I think the sushi is great, and it makes sushi more affordable than otherwise. And I highly recommend that people check it out on Monday nights as again, sushi is great for the price. However, service here is very poor. Service was slow and our server forgot my wife's tea and it took some time to even find her to flag her down about it. Fortunately, this was just a casual dinner out and we kind of just ignored the service issues, but this is a restaurant I will only ever dine at on Monday nights for the sushi special. Outside of this, there is nothing special about this place that sets it apart from other choices in the Buckhead area."

  • "We had reservations for 6:30 on a Saturday. Walked in and was seated promptly. Our waiter was very attentive and made great recommendations. Ambience was great! I could not have been happier with the experience!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "The food was great compared to your local Asian chain restaurant. It's a great date night spot for you and your mate or as group outing. The only knock I have about Aja is the service, its not horrible but its not the greatest either. You just have to be patient with them and they will take care of you."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Absolutely the nicest experience from any restaurant. The host and waitress were very polite, interesting, and helpful! Food was terrific, high quality, and very well prepared. Everything was just perfect! Cannot wait to return. Also, there was a surprise of $5 Dim Sums (appetizers) and boy were they delicious!! Yummy."
    Dined on 1/5/2014
  • "The atmosphere at Aja seems to be hip & cool Asian Fusion but the muzak must've been set on wedding reception mode. Everything from 80's hits, to semi-old standards played...loudly. Created a notably odd ambiance. We had 7 ppl, celebrating a colleague's bday while on an out of town business trip. Server was friendly but seemed to lack experience. For instance our soy sauce covered sushi plates & edamame remnants were still on the table when the surprise bday dessert / drinks we'd arranged arrived. The sushi rolls were large with interesting combinations but may have been lacking freshness. The calamari was a hands down star. All agreed it was the best they'd had, with a unique sauce & flavor. In house purity vodka was also a hit."
    Dined on 1/5/2014
  • "Both the food and service was excellent. My only complaint would be that I felt as though I was shopping at Abercrombie with the overly loud annoying techno type music playing. Combined with the restaurant noise makes it impossible to have a traditional dinner conversation. I don't understand the new trend of playing loud music at places, but if your into that then you will find this place to be excellent across the board."

  • "Had an awesome time at Aja, love the convenience of it in Buckhead, the valet parking in the cold and the awesome food. Service was a bit slow but overall great experience."

  • "My best friend and I chose Aja as the place for us to dine before we went out on the town on NYE. The food was amazing. Despite the fact that we ate in the upstairs dining space and there was only 2 in our party, everything else was wonderful. The only thing I may not order again is the passion fruit cheesecake. It's not like the classic Cheescake we all know and love. But it is an Asian restaurant, so that is to be expected. The pot stickers as an appetizer are great."

  • "This was a great choice for New Years Eve. We ate well, with appetizers, soups, entrees, desserts, and wine, and the bill came in under $100. You can eat well here and get more than two entrees without busting your budget completely. In other words, you can actually have some variety and eat freely. The food was definitely above average, and the ambience was wonderful. Park in the deck next door and the front desk will validate your ticket for you."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The restaurant was good as usual, but the seats we were given, even with a reservation, were poor. It seemed as thought they set a card table with two flimsy chairs up for us. There were seats upstairs that two people were given at normal tables. Trash the flimsy table and chairs."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "I had a reservation. We did not get seated until 30 minutes after my scheduled reservation time. No one informed me of the delay. We were only seated after I went to the hostess and inquired."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We had a great time at Aja, the sushi were great. Although our server wasn't that great, he would leave and took a while to come back to get our orders and check. The place wasn't even busy so we don't know where he would go. Overall it was good."

  • "It was an anniversary for my girlfriend and I and our waitress Max was outstanding. Even the other servers who helped out and the manager came by to say hello and it felt like we were being taken care of by all three people! The food was great as always and it just goes to show that a little kindness goes a long way. Be nice to your servers! Especially around the holiday season."
