Great location with wonderful service. Food is excellent, but a little too spicy. I feel they should be able to tone down the spices as many other restaurants do. Their sofas are really nice when the weather is good, the open windows create a great touch.

Not a huge fan of the food (personal taste) but nice environment and fun place to hang out or do happy hour.

Taking advantage of the nice weather, I was looking to have a nice, decent priced, sit-down lunch. Walking down Pearl St. I noticed Aji Latin American Restaurant had their patio open, so it was a no brainer; I was going to eat here. I

Tremendous Happy Hour experience rolled into a comfortable table for dinner, Service was hospitable and warm, knowledgeable and efficient. Food and drink (cocktails at the bar, wine with dinner) were delicious. Really enjoyed ceviche,

I have been to Aji a few times and have generally found the food to be interesting and overall quite good. You should also check out happy hour as it is also excellent with a very nice draft beer selection.
Also, I am pretty sure happy

Everytime I go to Aji I am amazed at how good it is! The food is always beautifully prepared and the service is always outstanding. I love the decor and they have a fantastic happy hour.
I always go to Aji for special occasions but recently found I've been craving the food, so I go more and more.

Pros: Best Food in Town

This is perhaps the worst place my wife and I have ever been in our lives. Nobody greeted us at the door, nobody Ever smiled, including our stern, ill-informed server. The food was very uneven - some parts were cold, others were overdone. And to top it off, we both got sick. We are avid restaurant diners in Boulder. We've asked around and it turns out several people have been made sick by this restaurant's food. We'll never go back, I hope you never go and for Boulder's sake I hope it's off the Boulder Restaurant landscape within the month.

Pros: Might close someday

Cons: Still in business

The food is consistently great; they are very good and patient w/ special (food) needs (i.e. gluten free menu etc.).
Also have a good tequila selection & great margaritas!

Last night my husband and I had our first experience at Aji Restaurant on Pearl Street in Boulder - it is one block east of the walking mall. We began with margaritas and ceviche in the bar area for happy hour. The happy hour deals are wonderful - discounted mojitos and marg, beer, wine, ceviche and empanadas. The ceviche was fresh and the marg was made with fresh juices and agave nectar to sweeten. A nice touch we thought! Other menu items were also available - but stick to the discount items, that's where the real value is at!! From there we proceeded to a table in the dining room. The setting is warm and well done. For dinner we ordered a Cuban Bread Salad to share and split 2 entrees - the scalllops and the vegetarian eggplant rellenos. The salad was crisp and clean and the dressing was seasoned perfectly! Our scallops were fresh, cooked nicely and were accompanied by a great black rice with coconut milk. The salsas on the rellenos packed a nice kick and the quinoa was cooked well. Housemade riccota cheese provided a nice cool down from the salsas! Service was on point all throughout the night from bar to dining room. Employees were hospitable and knowledgable, but unobtrusive. The wine list was fully South American, with some additional Spanish selections and a cocktail list comprised of Latin classics! I haven't seen a cocktail and wine list like this anywhere in Boulder!!! We skipped dessert, but will certainly indulge on our next visit-which will be soon! We're excited to return in the summer as well, so we can enjoy the patio and people watch on Pearl!

Pros: Food, attention to details in dishes and drinks

Cons: none

Friendly and effiecient service. Try the ceviche bar if that is your thing. My friends had the coffee rubbed pork chops and the tiger shrimp and pineapple dish which they loved. The mojitos were great, too. This is a good choice if you are lookig for something different.

Every time I go to Aji I am amazed by the quality of the food, especially for the price. Don't get me wrong, it is possible to spend a good deal of money, but in comparison to some of Boulder's other restaurants, it's a pretty decent price. But getting back to the food... it's great. Don't go to Aji expecting traditional Central and South American food, but instead be ready for some wonderful flavors, inspired by Latin-America. I would have to say my only gripe is the slightly "turn and burn" service, but on the other hand you basically get what you pay for. All in all I would have to rate Aji one of Boulder's best.

Cons: The serivice is not top notch... but then again it's not the Flagstaf

I've been so excited everytime I've gone to Aji due to my passion for Latin cuisine, and although the food us usually good, if not great, the service is a constant dissapointment. Only once has the service been extremely slow, usually it's attentive but the waitstaff has absolutely NO personality and after arriving excited the server almost always brings me down to some level of melancholy. The atmosphere is outstanding and all of the starters (ceviche, empanadas, sopas...) are wonderful, though the entree's are always good they don't quite live up to my expectations. Ultimately, if Aji's waitstaff was more knowledgable about the cuisine and less dour, this would be one of Boulder's top five restaurants... as it is, I'm not sure it will be around in a year or two.

Every time I have ordered something different, I loved it! Happy hour is the best. All other times are expensive, though the food is worth every dime.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Cost, other than happy hour

We loved this. I am a good food freak and this is now one of my favorite restaurants in Boulder along with the Dushanbe Teahouse and Lucilles. Their Hamburgesa is an amazing twist on the hamburger (pork and beef), Yam fries (EXCELLENT) and the most amazing Churro dessert with coffee dipping sauce. Also, their cocktails and virgin drinks (ginger and lime) rocked. Very cool people and good service too. I hope it gets reviewed more and is there next time I come to Boulder, CO. Enjoy!
