It's always crowded in this little restaurant and everyone seems to enjoy the food immensely. But it is not my thing. I am not familiar with sushi that is authentic as they serve and feel funny ordering something I don't know what it is. the servers don't speak very good English who should be able to explain the items on...

This place is fantastic. Every dish we had was as good or better than what we have eaten in Japan. And, the price was so reasonable. The total bill came to $36 for the two of us. The waitress was very good and more than willing to split a bowl of Ajishin udon noodles between my husband and I. The... More

This is a small Japanese restaurant. I had to wait for one and a half hours to be seated. I don't know why it is so crowded. The food tastes ordinary.

We love this little restaurant, wish it was bigger so the wait isn't so long for dine in. It is always crowded. The food is very good, especially their grilled fish and udon soup. We get take outs at least a couple of times a month.

Very nice restaurant, typically Japanese, sushi and sashimi is really of high quality and prices are quite affordable. And besides this, the owners and the people serving at the restaurant are really kind. I've being trying different places in Novi and Ajishin is the best.
