We arrived at the restaurant and were some of the first guests with a 630pm reservation.... it took an hour to get our meals and the service was slow and wrong. Choose an alternative BUT If you want food from here order takeout....

Had a booking for 7:45pm for 8 people but was not seated till 8:10pm. They jammed 8 of us onto a table suited for only 6 maximum. Just to explain normally a table sits 2 this size , but for us they put 2 tables together to sit 8..... Understandably we were not happy. They were not apologetic about the... More

We got seated nearly half an hour after our booking then were left for 20mins unattended (the place was very busy). The food was fantastic and in good quantity per serve. The beef was cooked perfectly, the sushi was a hit with our group, the dumplings were delicious. I would definitely go back and recommend this place to others. The... More

We went to Irori for a dinner. It was a very good place to eat. All of the dishes are presented well and they taste good. Some of the items are a bit expensive considering what you get for the price. The place is quite small which can make it hard to move around, but overall it is a good... More

We visited with friends a couple of weeks ago. It was our first visit but one of their favourites that they've been to a few times. Our friends took charge of the ordering and we got a great selection of sushi, sashimi, dumplings and other dishes. Brought our quickly and regularly as ready the experience was relaxed, but the food... More

Some friends invited me to Irori a few weeks ago. They had eaten there a few times previously, so I let them order the food. Good move. They chose very well, with some excellent tempura and more. I went back with some other people a couple of weeks later. However, I really was not sure what to order. I somehow... More

This place seemed crazily busy. Food was simple Japanese. Sashimi was fresh with a good selection of fish. Teriyaki chicken was very good. BYO. Great choice for dinner. Recommended for simple clean flavored Japanese.

This is a simple review... The food is fine but due to the enforced 2 session times (not a fan of this business model but was out voted by my friends) and a queue of people trying order & pickup take away food, things (service) got too slow. Our last main meal hadn't yet arrived and there was only 15mins... More
