As always...foood was super...service was alittle off this time...maybe due to the very large crowd...at least 3 groups were waiting for tables...good thing we had reservations...It was nice that we were greeted warmly by Peter and a few members of the staff even though we had been there in 3 or 4 months,all and all another good night out...keep up the good work crew...

We were a group of 6 and everyone
We were a group of 6 and everyone loved their choices. We shared a variety of appetizers and loved them all. It was our first visit. Great space, lighting, decor and we even liked their version of the birthday song! Our waiter was very helpful and made some great recommendations. We will definitely return again. The restaurant was packed but yet we did not feel squeezed in next to anyone.

Really Liked It
Food was really good, desserts were outstanding. Decor is quite different, which makes it a great place to try. We really enjoyed it; nice for a change.

I have been very impressed
I have been very impressed with everything overall. They have a very interesting menu, accommodating and friendly service, the owner is very attentive to everyone's needs. Above all, I have now been there 4 times, the food has been consistently good. The atmosphere is lively and fun. The friends who I have brought with me each time, agree and would also go back. It's a BYOB so that keeps it a reasonable, neighborhood restaurant that can be frequented.

This was the best Tai food
This was the best Tai food that we have experience in NJ hands down. Sushi looked really good as well. BYOB makes it even better!

Unique Thai /Japanese restaurant
Been to the restaurant three times and each time everything from service to food to the owner checking on our satisfaction was wonderful. For the quality of the food, the pricing is reasonable.

The food was prepared beautifully.
The food was prepared beautifully. The service was a bit disjointed this time. Although all requests were handled but one, the requests were not anticipated. The final request was not completed, that is , the leftover food was never returned to the table before leaving. We left without taking home any wrapped food.

Great experience. Far surpassed
Great experience. Far surpassed our expectation for both food & service. Can't wait to go back.

Pad Thai too "Fishy" this time
I love their Pad Thai and have had it many times at Aoyama. But this time they were a little too heavy in their use of the dried schrimp and/or fish sauce so the dish was a bit overwhelmed with a fishy taste. Not terrible, but a bit off balanced. Also, we dined this time at a very busy time and you could tell the dish was hastily prepared, There were no peanuts or scallions in the dish as presented.

Pleasant relaxed atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff. This was our 2nd visit. Our first was on Mother's Day with friends, usually a frantic time to dine out. We all enjoyed it and left with lovely roses.

This is a very good restaurant.
This is a very good restaurant. We have already been there twice. The sushi tacos are awesome. Interesting rolls too. The Thai food was super spicy so ask for mild.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Although Aoyama has been open for about a year, we hesitated going because we are not familiar with French Thai food and felt a little intimidated. Wish we had gone sooner! We were very impressed with the food, efficient service, and ambiance.

Went to Aoyama to celebrate a co-workers birthday. There were 5 of us. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Service is efficient and friendly. We all agreed that we would go back.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Better than you would expect in a strip mall, inside it doesn't feel like that is where you are. The menu is really really big, which would be great, except you can't decide what to get. The food was great! The only disappointment was the spring roll appetizer. Other than that, everyone enjoyed their meals! The tuna wrap sushi roll was one of the best special rolls I have ever had.

Excellent food, good service,
Excellent food, good service, good ambiance and good value. Excellent restaurant all round.

Dine here all the time, and it is ALWAYS consistently outstanding. From Sushi to Thai Food, everything on the menu is wonderful, and that is why my family and I keep coming back time after time.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been there several times and the food is really fantastic. The waitress and waiters are really great, but service is poor. Food comes out much to late, but once it's out it's delicious. The need to work on service.

Fine Asian Cuisine
We chose this restaurant to appease some of the people in our group that were unsure about Thai food. The classic Japanese menu alleviated any fears about the unknown French Thai style. Both menus are excellently executed.

Dinner with my husband
Last minute decision to go out for dinner and a perfect choice. The duck crepes we spectacular.
We loved that it is a "bring your own".
Can't wait to go back to try the sushi.

We found the service to be very good, the soup as per the recommendations of our waiter was good, it was the Hot & Sour Seafood which was excellent. The meal in itself was good, no special spices that made it uncomfortable for anyone but not exactly what I expected, I would think this is a meal that needs to be determined by an individual pallet. The presentation was very good and the atmosphere was comfortable. We were looking for a place to have a nice quiet meal to spend time with family and this was it. No one rushed us and we were very comfortable.

Great curry chicken an curry duck! We come to this restaurant on a regular basis and the food is great! The service is also very good. You cannot go wrong coming here. It is good for couples and for family.

Birthday Lunch with the Women
As always, Aoyama has friendly/efficient service, a variety of good food, and nice atmosphere.

Fun Night out
Our group of six celebrated a friend's birthday at Aoyama. We enjoyed sharing delicious sushi and Thai dishes, and appreciated being able to bring our own alcohol (especially when the bill came to only $50/couple for a great night out with plenty of food!). The birthday song, with the lights flickering and the disco music wa sa lot of fun, too! We heard it a lot that night. Apparently Aoyama is a popular birthday celebration place. We'll be back!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, not great. Inconsistent. Some things the waiter noted were spicy were mild and others had the kick we were looking for. Waited a VERY long time to get our wine opened, then waited a ling time to order. Fun to go for your birthday as they turn down the lights and have a special birthday song and hat. Décor is lovely and unexpected based on its strip mall location. Overall a nice night and we would try it again.

Guys Night Out
Aoyama was a great place to go with a bunch of guys. We were there on Tuesday with 11 guys. The food and service were great. We would defiantly go back.

it is one of the nicest looking
it is one of the nicest looking restaurants in Bergen County. The food is always good and the staff is attentive and well-trained. I love the fact that you can talk to your friends and hear them as it is a quiet restaurant.
In addition, the menu is very varied and it is apparent that the food is made with great skill.
I have been working my way through the menu as it all sounds very tempting. I have never been disappointed I have recommended it to many friends who have subsequently attended and loved it as I do..
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
I only sampled the Thai menu. There is a French menu and a Japanese menu. Odd combination! Thai menu was somewhat limited but what we had was fine. I would return but it's not high in my list of local restaurants.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent Asian cuisine
Dined with Living Social offer and we were very impressed! Top quality tuna rolls, great shrimp spring rolls, ginger dressing on salad was spot on, entrees also excellent. A bit expensive but worth it for the superb quality.

Management could be improved
Our server kept telling us to rush our order because there was a party of 12 coming in and she would not be able to pay attention to us!! The server told us that the manager was rushing her!! True or not, it's not a smart thing to say to customers

If you're looking for Japanese...
If you like Japanese and you live in Bergen County, you must try this restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

Worth the wait
Had to wait 15 minutes for seating from reservation time. Food was great and well prepared. The sushi rolls as appetizers were excellent and beautifully presented. Main courses were exceptional. As always, the owner /maître'd was actively involved on a busy night.
