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.

They have Sushi bar, teppanyaki table and excellent food! Try the dragon roll and the baby squid, for desert don't forget to order "tempura ice" with strawberry or chocolate :)

The food looks better than it tastes. Good presentation, but not the flavor you would expect at a Japanese joint.

Next to my overnight hotel. Convenient. Tried a miso-based ramen. It was edible but not nearly as good as the ramen at Tokio 07 in Merida. 50% more expensive (not unexpected in Cancun) & 50% lower quality. Attentive, pleasant staff but I regretted not trying one of the outdoor taco joints nearby.

We have eaten at Irori at least once every year for the last three years and each time have been impressed by the service and quality of the food.we We have sampled nigri, sashimi, tempura, and other Japonese specialities and have loved them all. The sushi rolls are wonderful. On this visit my partner had a tempura shrimp avocado combination... More

This place is for people who desire the freshest , most authentic sushi in Mexico , in fact it easily keeps pace with some of the best sushi restaurants I've been to around the world. The only downside is the selection could be wider but honestly it doesn't need a bigger selection for the most part, I love halibut and... More

Friendly staff and really good food. But very pricey. But for what it's worth, I wasn't upset with it

Ok si it's more expensive than your normal takeaway. The freshness, all around quality and warmth of service is outstanding. Not easy to find as it is on a side street but definitely worth searching for.

Food and service are good but you can find same quality sushi somewhere else for half a price. Visit sushi roll in Plaza Las Americas as an option

I am new to the world of sushi, but my husband is not. The menu is extensive and there is definitely something for everyone. We ordered a wide array of sushi, all which was brought together in one large serving platter, perfect to share. Everything was very fresh and delicious. We tried one meat roll which we liked the least,... More
