I have eaten at Aji several times of the past couple of months and cannot say enough positive things about their food and drinks. Today, for lunch, I had the enchilada with pulled pork - the flavors were exquisite, and the presentation delightful, far above your run of the mill Mexican restaurant. At a recent happy hour, I had the... More

My family and I stopped in for breakfast and were very disappointed. Though we were able to sit right away and there were only 4-5 tables taken, it took about 1 1/2 hours to be served and the food was very average, barely adequate. Would not recommend.

We enjoyed a pleasant lunch here while strolling along Pearl Street. Attractively located in a re-purposed Boulder building. Plenty of Mexican choices, but the guacamole and enchiladas were clearly the winners. Pleasant service, if a bit slow. Larger than most Pearl Street restaurants, you can usually find a seat here.

Walking on the Pearl Street Mall, getting hungry and eenie, meanie, minie, mo and fingers pointed to Aji. What a great, random pick. Restaurant was in an old renovated building with wonderful architectural details to which someone devoted a lot of thought. Service was great, pleasant wait-staff and a reasonably diverse menu. Well worth a stop for lunch.

Enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Shared tasty and nicely presented chips and guacamole.Then two of us had Seared Sea Scallops - delicious, one had chicken with coconut rice - good, and one had the Churrasco - sweet corn soup then skewered beef with side dishes - you need a good appetite to tackle that one, but very tasty.

Really everything two of us had during a great happy hour time on an outside table just off of Pearl Street was delicious (prices $3-7): nicely fried brussels sprout leaves; savory chick pea salad (off of their adjacent Leaf vegetarian restaurant menu) with arugula, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, feta and a tahini vinaigrette; duck barbecue taco -- this was special delicious,...

Had the $3.00 fish tacos and the Argentinean wine. Perfect! Sat outside, food came quick, and the food was perfect for what we needed.
