i try to eat here whenever I am in the area. They serve traditional Japanese food made with skill. I stick to the udon combinations. I've had them all and they all rock. Tempura batter is light and non-greasy. Service is excellent, I had a problem once and they took care of it immediately and made sure I was happy with the replacement. Prices for lunches are remarkable. I'd eat here everyday if I could.

Pros: Lovely setting, great food, nice staff and terriffic prices.

Cons: Sometimes a lineup for during peak periods.

Be sure to try the food here.. We have been to Japan before, and we love all kinds of Japanese cuisine..
Do you love noodle dishes like Soba? Try this place.. You won't be disappointed. If you go on a Saturday, be sure to get there on time. It gets busy right away..

Good food, reasonable lunch menu. Fresh sushi. I would order grill fish combo for dinner for non-sushi eaters. Spicy tuna roll is the best in town.

Pros: Good lunch price, good udon and spicy tuna roll, fresh sushi

Cons: Cannot get the seat sometimes. It is a smal place. Not good for large group.

Since I have left Detroit, I think it's fair to let others know about my best kept secret. As an Asian and Foodie, this is my favorite place in Detroit. I would drive half an hour each way, twice a week to go there. Now I am in Cleveland, I would visit everytime I go to Detroit, and even rent a car at the airport when I have long layover at DTW. You will find the restaurant to be 90-95% asian...a sign of the food's authenticity and value. It's a clean and comfortable atmosphere with good service...a little busy at times for it's a good restaurant. It's not expensive or stuffy as the other Japanese places in Novi. The noodles are good, and the best in Detroit/Michigan. The sushi is outstanding, and the price is very reasonable (the Japanese owner is the sushi chef). I would put it against Noble fish for value, except Ajishin's cuts are thicker, therefore more feel to the bite. Anybody can cut fish, but the real test of the sushi chef is the Tomago (egg). Try their Tomago and you'll know what I mean. The grilled fish is my favorite dish where you get grilled fish, half bowl of noodles, rice and pickles for a very reasonable price. I love their cod jaw, but seems like they have been out of them recently. Other items on their menu are delicately done as should true Japanese food. Don't forget their spicy curry rice and rice ball (both not on the menu). The only thing bad about this place is it's very busy at times, and you might have to wait up to 45 minutes...so make a reservation early if you can. Hope I don't regret writing this review as I may face longer waits in the future. Enjoy your meal!

Every month, I religiously drive up to go to Ajishin, the hippo bakery and One World Market to satisfy my japanesey cravings. The...

sushi...
sorba noodles...
odon noodles...

are beyond belief.
If you go, expect it to be crowded. It is crowded for a reason!

This small family-owned restaurant offers good sushi and great udon noodles (traditional buckwheat noodle soup) at very low prices. The place is small and very busy on the weekends, but the food is a great value. If you're looking for a good meal at a good price and don't mind a crowded and busy atmosphere, Ajishin is a great choice.
