We are regulars and bring our Foody friends. The freshness and the cutting of sashimi is always outstanding. The chicken and seafood tapanyaki just lovely. Service is fast efficient and nonchalant. By far Brightons best eatery.

Not a wide variety of authentic Japanese food on the menu. Plenty of sushi, sashimi and basic items but being well-travelled and experienced in Japan/Japanese cuisine, I would say this restaurant caters to the uninitiated. I asked for a bowl of green seaweed as it did not appear on the menu and was served exactly what I requested but it... More

Unless you want to pay serious big bucks, Irori is the best Japanese around! The service isn’t anything amazing but the food is absolutely delicious. The Teriyaki Salmon was a standout for me - a little bit pricey but great value for money as it was a huge portion which came with crunchy veggies and various other accompaniments. They do... More

A friend of mine, lives in Brighton and wanted and recommended we meet at Irori a local Japanese restaurant as he said it is very good and he was correct. He has been instrumental to introducing me to all Asian cultures and food over 25 years so I trusted his judgement. So I got in a taxi from in front... More

If you are after a decent Japanese meal, this is the place for it. The restaurant is small and looks cozy from the outside. Upon entering it on a Friday night, it was jam-packed. Despite our reservation for a table for two at 7.30 pm, we were told to sit outside as our table was not ready. Food wise, gyozas... More

Irori is our local Japanese Restaurant that we have been to 3-4 times. Each time the experience has been positive and enjoyable. The decor or this small, intimate restaurant is typically contemporary Japanese with a liberal use of timber panelling. The food is also what I would call contemporary Japanese. There is a sashimi bar where delectable, fresh seafood delicacies... More
