The Worst Panasian food in NYC – Aja on Sixth Avenue has mediocre food and a rude staff especialy the bartenders. There is no reason to go to this establishment as they have a scam about the happy hour as they will not honor their buy one get one free and tag on additonal charges. It's crowded and not well staffed. The bartenders are a poor excuse for help as one guy is not only rude but down right stupid.
Fun Place For a Quick Dinner at the Bar – I like this restaurant. I come here regularly after a class on Monday. I can sit at the bar and by the second visit the barkeep knew the kind of saki I liked. This is a good place for saki lovers. I have never gotten beyond the starter menu -- because I love the choices I have made and continue to enjoy them. I recommend the steamed (or) fried crab dumplings. The coverings are soft and easy to eat. The fillings are very good - savoury - and the dish (6 dumplings) come with a mix of mango and soy sauce that is incredible. A beautiful mix of flavours. The next starter I usually choose is the edamame (steamed with salt) and the most amazing choice: the grilled sea bass skewers. You must try this. I have had california rolls which were fresh and good but I have yet to explore the sushi menu. A great and lovely fusion of various cuisines.
terrible – i picked up some simple sushi. spicy tune. a tuna toll. and. a jalapeno/yellowtail roll. it is the worst sushi i have had in this city. not only over priced. the rice was crunchy. the spicy tuna is 90% bright orange-red sauce with barely any tuna. the yellowtail jalapeno was served not with fresh jalapeno's but with CANNED ones. to top it off they sent me home without wasabi and ginger. which this sushi needed to mask the taste.
i am a sushi lover. and. this place is to be avoided.
Disappointing – I was attracted to this place by the amazing decor. Upon entering, I was immediately greeted and seated by friendly staff member. I ordered the lunch special, which at a cost of $9 was a bit pricier than similar West Village restaurant's lunch specials. I had the Thai-style Chilean Sea Bass and Chicken Teriyaki. Both tasted bland. My miso soup was extremely salty and the salad with the carrot ginger dressing was pretty disgusting. I asked for an alternative dressing, but carrot ginger was the only dressing offered. I love sushi so I also sampled a couple of rolls and to my dismay, I discovered that the fish wasn't the freshest! Whoever designed this restaurant did a great job on decorating, but I don?t recommend the food at all!
!!!!!!!! – Great place!!!! Nice to spend time with family and friends!!!! Food is good, espesially SUSHI!!!!!!!
Editorial Review – Aja Asian Bistro offers New York diners a unique experience in their two-level Asian-inspired restaurant.
good ambiance, good food, great happy hour – I met a friend at Aja last tuesday. My friend chose the place, but I was very impressed with the decor for what I thought was a small time restaurant on 6th ave. The space was actually much bigger than expected (even though they did not seat their upstairs dining room. They have a large buddha at the end of the restaurant but I would definitely get rid of the two flatscreens - it took away from the ambiance. The food was substantial and tasty and the plates were very unique - even by NYC standards. After mulling over the dessert menu for a couple minutes and deciding on a couple glasses of sake, they brought a cheesecake with the drinks. The best part was when the server told us all drinks were 2 for 1 until 7.30. Definitely worthwhile especially if you live in the area and if you don't mind going out to eat at 6.30 - just go their with your "old" friends :)
