We love Japanese food, so it’s always exciting when we find a new restaurant that we know we will be returning to. Aji 53, Smithtown is one such find for us. It is a recommendation that we are thankful for.
Located in the end unit of Village Commons Center in Smithtown, it could easily be overlooked, but don’t. Unassuming from the outside, we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful space inside. A spacious welcome area is just inside the street level double doors, entryway, and another door. As you enter the first set of doors take a look at the wall on your right, covered with Mah Jong tiles, dominoes and dice. Wow! We couldn’t believe we missed it on our way in, and only noticed it on our way out!
We were lucky enough to get one of the spacious booths near the front of the dinning area. Besides the booths, there are tables and banquettes, as well as a full-height bar, plus a sushi bar in the rear.
Our server was lovely, and very competent. She made sure that everything was to our liking, and checked regularly to see that we had enough tea and water, Four of us chose a variety of appetizers, as well as sushi and sashimi. The presentation was lovely and everything tasted as good as it looked.
Large, accessible, single-occupancy restrooms are located in the rear, behind the beautiful sushi bar. Take a few moments and watch the “show” at the sushi bar! The sink is accessible, but there is no baby-changing station.
Almost forgot, accessible parking is available in the large parking lot.
As always, we at Destination:Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website, http://www.aji53.com">www.aji53.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
