Just came back from dinner at Inori and it was so good I had to leave a review right away! Place is quite nice with separate, cosy booths and the service was very good. Having visited Japan I must say the food was excellent in quality and we did not have such nice Japanese anywhere else since our Tokyo getaway.... More

A fabulous menu was appreciated by all. I was the newbie of a group of 7, and I completely understand why they consider this their favourite Japanese restaurant in Cancun. I am also the only outsider, they are all locals. The service was very good, very obliging and always available. We really had everything but I'll focus on what I... More

I have been eating at Irori for a number of years and have never been disappointed. The sushi chefs are awesome, creative and interactive. This is not the typical 'let's put cream cheese in everything' Mexican sushi restaurant. I don't eat at any other sushi restaurant. This may sound odd but try tempura parsley. Delicious!! They serve it with warm... More

I have been to most Japanese restaurants in Cancún, and Irori is one of the best. The food is very good, the fish and seafood always seem fresh. I would definitely recommend it. Try the lion fish sashimi. It is impressive.

I took my local friends out to dinner at Irori since I had heard great reviews. It was simply amazing as you will see from the photos. Dynamite Roll, Rainbow Roll, fried ice cream, green tea ice cream. Everything we ate was out of this world.

This is a traditional sushi place that tries to keep it so. Eventually sushi places in Mexico lose their way in the over exagerated conbinations, but this place keeps it just right. The ingedients are first quality and it shows in taste. And the price might be a little on the high side but it is worth it.

This is THE go-to place for sushi and sashimi in Cancun. While sushi restauranta abound in Cancun, most of them serve Mexicanized versions of Japanese food featuring Philadelfia cream cheese in everything. Irori is true to traditional Japanese receipes. When Japanerse friends visit me, this is where I take them and the food and service are always excellent.
