I have visited this restaurant for at least 5 years. On my latest visit I was very disappointed with the food and the service. Admittingly the waiter was young but enthusiastic. On seating I was asked if I would like a drink. I asked for a James Boag beer. He returned with an opened bottle and a glass and commenced... More

New management. New extensive wine list and menu. Took us quite awhile to decide when there's just so many options that it became quite confusing. There's alacarte as well as the many choices for banquet. The banquet menu is also quite confusing. Food came out fast. Was quite nice. Portion size ok. Wasabi mayo prawns were 2 but ok size....

Small portions and bland. Expensive. The crab claw and prawn was a joke for the starter. A tiny piece of crab coated in bread crumbs. Gone seriously down hill since 3 years ago when I last visited. A very confusing thing on the menu about special anniversary prices. Everything is more expensive for the anniversary menu. The chicken and veg... More

We had lunch at the Aja on New Year's Day and given its rating, we were surprised to find an empty restaurant. They had a small private area upstairs which was occupied but that was it. Given how good the food is, it truly was quite puzzling. There were not too many available restaurant options to choose from for lunch... More

We were on a search of an Asian restaurant which was obviously vegetarian friendly as I am a vegetarian and we wanted to try a new place, so we came across Aja restaurant. It was a very wise decision to dine in this restaurant as the food was very fresh and flavorful. I did not had any issue being a... More

Had a lovely meal and can't complain about the food or service. They have a daily special, but it is a bit strange that the menu states only one daily special per table. In the end none of us had the daily special, but when we handed over our entertainment card for a 25% discount, they stated the whole menu... More

Really had a lovely meal. Good service. Tried very hard to meet obscure dietary requirements. Green curry as good as any in the world. When the bill came out and we produced the Entertainment card, suddenly the original menu was discounted and didn't count (no indication on the menu excepting "10th anniversary special menu"). Meals were repriced at a new... More

Wow, what a fantastic restaurant. Huge menu, but it is all very very very good. Five of us had dinner in the restaurant, so we ordered a lot of food. Every single dish was fantastic. We were one of only two covers that night so we also had excellent service. Can't begin to say what we liked best, but the... More

The restaurant is lit with red globes giving it s strange vibe. Friendly attentive service. Menu almost too extensive.. 3 of us opted for a set menu others a la carte. 4 course set menu was too expensive for the tiny portions. Fish and lamb shanks off the menu looked nice and were of a good size.nice flavours but nothing... More

This is our first dinner with our baby boy and it was as good as our first time. We have been there 16 times, whether with friends, couples and even a big birthday function. Everyone were always impressed with the service, food and atmosphere.
