Being a regular in the restaurant in Cranston I've seen numerous change in menu and in staff. The fish in the portions seem to be getting smaller and smaller. The atmosphere is horrible with their now pop/rap music. Since the change in the menu they have removed some favorite dishes such as their sushi pizza. Also the rice is dry... More

Ordered some takeout from the Cranston location of Agisai, which appears to be part of this same chain but doesn't have a TripAdvisor link. Sushi wasn't ready when they said it would be. They had a few patrons in the restaurant but my order took 10 extra minutes while I waited for them to serve in the restaurant. Ordered some... More

Went here for lunch on a weekday. There are only two tables occupied, so we were a little sceptical. But in the end we enjoyed it. The restaurant is clean and very minimal wall decorations but I love it. Our server is nice and accommodating. I had Kabocha tempura, deep fried tofu and teriyaki beef and my husband had beef...

This restaurant is tucked in a small strip mall in the far NW with small frontage - easy to miss. Nice decor inside, very friendly greeting and excellent customer service (always prompt). The sashimi and nigiri are always fresh with great flavour - I've never had a bad experience at this restaurant. The only drawback is I found it just... More

The waiters are very nice and always smiling. The food is okay. It's cheaper compared to other sushi restaurants around the area. Their lunch specials are a pretty good price.

I had such high hopes for Ajisai. It's only a few blocks from my home. I went one evening when the craving hit. It was a weekday, regular dinner time. The restaurant was somewhat busy, and we had no trouble getting a table. Miso soup was great, as were the California rolls. My trouble came from frozen tuna and salmon,... More

Ordered soft shell crab roll and the crab had gone bad. The server took the price off our bill but insisted they have only the freshest seafood. She only needed to taste it to know it was NOT fresh. It's great she took it off our bill and it's really not a big deal. Sometimes these things happen but she... More
