An energetic little place hidden in the open, an oxymoron comment I know. Iori has a buzz to it and I'd love to see it in full swing when it is super busy. I had an early dinner on my way to see a movie...More

Very authentic Japanese restaurant. Reminded us of several places we went to in Japan. The gyozas were small but flavorful and served fried not steamed. The steak tataki was very good, and the dragon roll is tasty. The staff are excellent. I'd very happily return.

Excellent service, great warm house sake and fresh ingredients. The waiting staff knows what goes well and whilst the restaurant is small it is cosy. They often have specials going and it's a great way to be adventurous and share dishes. Tip is to either...More

My husband and I decided we wanted to go to Japanese to celebrate our wedding anniversary. After minimal research on the internet I came across Iori. Looks can be deceiving, from the street it doesn't look much but step inside and you're taken away into...More
