Ajia sushi

Has anyone been for the all you can eat sushi? Is it any good? It's at 31st and Walnut.

  1. Haven't been; probably won't, but by definition, "all you can eat sushi" has to be pedestrian at best. I admit to being a sushi snob. I used to eat that nicely packaged stuff in Genuardis, Whole Foods, etc, but no longer do so. It's OK, it won't hurt you, but it won't give you a thrill either. I'd rather eat the real thing less often than settle for the pedestrian.

    1. I've been here a couple of times and will probably be back a few more times. I wouldn't say it's the best sushi ever, but I wouldn't say it's pedestrian, either. It's good, decent quality sushi. Morimoto-quality? No. I'd say the quality is somewhere about a step or two below Pod (which I happen to like). In the others, if you're in the neighbourhood, I can think of worse places to spend or $22 or whatever, but I wouldn't make a trek for it, either.

      1. It's on par with AOI's all you can eat. I'm with bashful. Not a snob, but if I am doing sushi, I wouldn't go out of my way to seek Ajia out.

        1. I have had it when it was just wonderful, but that would be over a year ago. Unless they've changed, you could order whatever you wanted, not the typical 'Eat everything we put on your plate before you get another plate' B.S. you get at so many sushi places.

          I recommend it.
