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.

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.

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
