We were returning from a day of golf at Rancho Murieta and stopped at Aji for an early dinner. We'd never been here before and were immediately impressed with the casual and elegant ambiance. Our waiter was superb and recommended a couple of yummy appetizers--spicy edamame and mango glazed crispy eggplant. My husband and I shared the Happy Hour Special for dinner--the Big Three--crispy​ ​gyoza,​ ​pork​ ​lumpia, ​&​ ​tempura​ ​shrimp, with​ ​chef’s​ ​choice​ ​roll​​--all excellent. We will be back!

This is my favorite restaurant in El Dorado Hills. Great bar. Excellent service. Excellent food. It’s my #1 go-to place for eating out.

Lots of interesting menu selections.Even is your not a big sushi fan there are many "cooked" selections. Been there many times and only had one questionable dish which they quickly,and without charged, replaced. If you choose the chefs selection be prepared to spend a little more but many items to select from. I like the fresh oysters. Lots of beef dishes to choose from for the non sushi diners.

It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I moved to EDH a while ago and have been (too slowly) going through TripAdvisor's top 10 restaurants. We should have gone to Aji sooner!

We recently visited during Happy Hour with our hungry son. Aji has an extensive wine and beer selection, and a pretty large bar as well. Cocktails were a good start. Then we ordered several items off the happy hour menu, including kalbi fries (wow!), baby back ribs and veggie tacos. These were our waiter Robby's recommendations, since it was our first visit (thank you Robby - you made our visit delightful), and they were great. We probably should have stopped there, but the calamari looked good and our son had a few sushi rolls. We were stuffed! Everything was delicious.

Decor is very pleasant and airy. Service was outstanding. Happy hour prices are very reasonable, and a glance at the regular menu and they looked okay too.

We shall return - 2 thumbs up!
