I went there for lunch with my girl friend and we both had noodle bowls with beef. She had the Chinese Lo Mein and I had the Japanese Yakisoba. We both really enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. We had soft drinks, although I was tempted to get the $5 sake that was on special. We were there... More

I had a very pleasing bowl of noodles here with shrimp, onions, cilantro, and more. I thought the food was good and the service was good. I sure am glad that I don't have to worry about "layering of flavors" or the skin color of the people who served me, as did another reviewer here. I just enjoyed the food... More

We visited on a Friday night with our son, daughter-in-law & toddler and found a table right away at Aja. The server was accommodating to requests for a high chair and an "early" order for our grandson. But, once that was delivered, she disappeared for what seemed like a long time. Dinners were worth the wait and I was happy... More

With the exception of maybe 3 visits since it opened in the late 1990s, we have had excellent meals at AJA. We frequent AJA and always feel satisfied when leaving. The options for vegans are immense. Yakisoba and Cabbage Wraps are our favorites.

Although Aja Noodle deems itself an Asian fusion restaurant, our experience proved it to be Asian-wanna-be noodles created by white folks who are afraid of real Asian flavors (and probably of Asian people, too). The clientele and staff were all white--an initial sign that there's little going on culinary-wise that connects with those who know Asian cuisine. To be clear,... More

Although I had eaten lunch in here many times in the past, I had never tried the Yakisoba bowl, which is Japanese noodles with onions, carrots, ginger, and shrimp (which I added for extra). I found this dish to be very good, and made even better with the addition of a little hot sauce. The service was also very good,... More

We went and tried their various East Asian noodle bowls and Soups. The variety is good but its a few dishes from Vietnamese, Thai, Japanese and Chinese but each dish tastes good and you cannot go wrong. Service has always been good. Love their dumplings and appetisers

We had not been to aja noodle in years and decided when we saw a coupon that we would try it again. On the plus side the service was very good. I ordered the shrimp pad thai. The shrimp were tiny, hard and flavorless. The pad thai was like a dry tasteless pasta with no veges or flavor. I ate... More

My wife and I visited Aja noodle for the first time last week and were underwhelmed. While we were seated quickly during the weekday dinner hour, it took some time for one of the ample staff to approach our table for service. Once she found us, however, she was great. We ordered Pad Thai with chicken and shrimp and Thai... More

We had not been to Aja for several years and decided to go for lunch. The offerings for vegetarians are impressive. I had the pad thai with tofu and my companion had the Bangkok noodle bowl with fresh vegetables, udon noodles in coconut milk sauce with peanuts. Both were very fresh, served quickly and the excellent. The portions were generous.... More
