“Worst Japanese Restaurant in Cancun”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

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. This is the worst Japanese restaurant in Cancun.

“Great Sushi!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

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 & ordered drinks. The service was great. The menu is big with lots of great options, sashimi, sushi, shabu shabu, & much more. We were just interested in sharing a few rolls since we had had a late lunch. We tried the dynamite roll, soft shell crab roll & spicy tuna roll. They started us off with a complimentary cucumber salad, tasty & refreshing. Our rolls were all beautifully presented, fresh & delicious. The soy with lime was quite tasty too.

Irori satisfied our sushi craving & we will be back for more!

“Good food. A bit more expensive than what it says here.”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

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.

“The best Japanese food in Cancun”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

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.
