Lost it's flavor, service and abilities to be one of the better Sushi places. I have been going here for the last 14 years and it shocked me that it went down hill so quick. Did not recognize any of the staff. Management was absent. Food mediocre and price value lost completely. Too many other good Sushi places in Cancun... More

Today we had dinner at Irori. It was nice but not the best japanese you can find. There are no Tepanyaki chefs, an unfortunate situation. The server had a bad cold. Hope we don't catch one.

There are 4 Japanese restaurants in Cancun area. This is the worst. We ordered Tempura Soba, Teppanyaki, Cold Shabu shabu salad, and California Roll. They can't distinguish between Tempura soup and Soba soup ! We asked Soba soup so many times and finally got it. Tempura & Teppanyaki were terrible, Sushi was not bad. No Japanese chef, No Japanese waiter.... More

Our friend had recently raved about a meal at Irori & after that all we could think about was sushi. We were coming to Cancun for an overnight & found a great hotel across the street from Irori, Ambiance Suites. We walked over for dinner around 8pm & we were greeted very nicely. We sat in a private booth &... More

A big menu and selection of Japanese foods. From classic cliche sushi to more traditional dishes. A lot of Asian people enjoy it and locals love it. I do think it is a bit more expensive than what the range in TripAdvisor says. Try the shellfish baked with mayonnaise.

I go to Irori at least once a month, the menu has a wide selection of food from Appetizers to entrees and desserts. The presentation is very professional and delicate, amazing flavors! you can distinguish every single ingredient, so delicate and tasty! The prices are very reasonable, the service "impeccable" I highly recommend this place.

Good sushi, GREAT service (although I definitely went on the early side). If you've been away from the states (or wherever) and are crazing fare other than plain seafood or Mexican, this is a good bet. I wouldn't say it's anywhere near the best sushi I've ever had, but it definitely hit the spot.
