On our last night in New York after experiencing so-so food on the trip, we chanced upon Ajisai and from the moment of walking through the doors to leaving was one of the most memorable dining experiences ever.
The location is perfect, about a 5-10 minute walk from Time Square but well away from the noise and congestion of the tourist hub.
Everything about Ajisai was top rating, from the greeting of front of house at the door, the $2 special on the branded beers from Sun-Thurs night, the service was professional and the food was exceptional.
Best of all the Salmon Teriyaki - fresh salmon fillet that just melted in the mouth accompanied by fluffy rice and freshly prepared Sushi made for an unbeatable meal.
Fellow guests appeared to be mainly local who know of this delightful Japanese restaurant in the Hell's Kitchen location of NY.
The one regret - we don't have one of similar quality near where we live as will be there most nights!!!
