Aji Sai

About: Aji Sai is a popular AYCE sushi joint located on the busy street of Queen St W. I arrived at around 1:00 pm and the restaurant was near capacity.

Decor: Aji Sai is a modernly decorated AYCE establishment with a hint of Asian fusion. The restaurant was pretty spacious and there are enough space (to get by) in between tables.

Price: I went to eat during lunch time, so it was only $12.99 (+ tax + tip). The price was both reasonable and on par with other nearby AYCE. The great thing about AYCE is that you can eat as much or as little as you like. 

Menu: The lunch menu was printed on a laminated 2-sides pager (first page was the menu and the second page explained the ingredients in the special rolls). The menu itself was relatively extensive (for lunch). There were 12 kinds of sushi, 18 kinds of hand rolls, 30 special rolls, various cooked/hot food, appetizers, soups, salads, ice-cream, etc …

Service:  The wait for the food was kind of long, as we were seated all the way in the back. The service was pretty decent though. The waitress who tended to our table was pleasant and quick to clear plates.

Food: Due to time constraints, as I only had an hour to eat before my meeting, I was unable to ordered a lot of dishes.

The veal chop was way too chewy.

The chicken teriyaki was tender and sweet.

As you can see from the picture; the green salad barely had any dressing on it. I was pretty much eating plain lettuce.

The yakitori was good, as the sauce was sweet in flavor.

I ordered one salmon roll, two white tuna sashimi, and four salmon sashimi. The overall quality of the sushi was decent. The one complaint that I really have about the sushi was that the rice was too overcooked and tasted mushy. The table turnover rates at Aji Sai are high so the fish was relatively fresh.

 The sushi pizza tasted pretty good, but the presentation was pretty plain.
