Aja Restaurant will delight you from the moment you enter. From the hip, but subtle music, to the stone temple architecture, Aja will please your eyes, ears, and most importantly, your palate. For the most impressive seat in the house, grab a seat near the six-foot Buddha, which sits atop a two-level stone pond filled with Japanese carp and bamboo. The soft colored, slow changing lights offer a romantic air of charm to the temple-like structure.

For a change of pace, be sure to check out the beautiful sushi bar, complete with friendly, experienced chefs, that will amaze and dazzle you with their innovate styles. Be sure to explore beyond the sushi and sashimi, as the kitchen can create wonderful dishes, such as Char Grilled Chilean Sea Bass, or Sweet and Sumptuous Bolo Chicken served in a whole pineapple shell. Another culinary treat is the delicious Ishi-yaki Stone Grill Filet Mignon, Kobe Beef, or the Omakase sushi special.

Sit back and relax as the courteous and knowledgeable wait staff guides you through the menu. If you enjoy having wine, Ajaís wide selection will be waiting for you, either at you table, or at the trendy lounge, adjacent to the dining room. Sake, and an impressive list of specialty drinks await patrons every night. The lounge and restaurant has become one of Sutton Placeís neighborhood hotspots since itís opening. Please join the rest of us for the wonderful, exciting, Aja experience.
