Irori is located in the seaside city of Marina Del Rey, West Los Angeles. While the neighborhood is home to many sushi restaurants, customer praise for Irori’s attentive service, unique selection of fish, and creative innovation to traditional Japanese interior design are main features of Irori Sushi. Thoughtful touches, such as a tatami floor, a type of mat used as a flooring material in traditional Japanese-style rooms, shoe drawer for a no-shoes policy, and embroidered pillows on wooden floors that simulate the traditional sushi experience, set Irori apart from its peers. You can try Japanese style cuisine at its very best with a huge selection of fresh and delicious sashimi, sushi and rolls. With incredible daily lunch special deals, you can get great prices any day of the week. Irori has a selection from a variety of elaborate and flavorful Chef Special Rolls allowing you to try different flavors throughout your dining experience.

Great place. Sushi is very good and they have a nice diverse menu. You'll also have a more authentic experience. You'll take off your shoes and sit on mats on the floor, but there is a place for your legs so it's just like sitting at a regular table. Only difference is no seat backs. Definitely recommend reservations on weekends.

We went to Irori for an early Mother's Day dinner and it was delicious as usual. Irori is one of our go-to restaurants because the quality of the food and service is consistently outstanding.

While the food was quite good, and the servers were helpful and efficient, we were stunned when one of the staff asked us to leave because other people were waiting for a table! We made reservations in advance, and were not made aware of any time limit on our table. It left us with a bad impression, after what had been, up til then, a pleasant dining experience.

Everything was very good as usual except the miso soup was lukewarm. Also I guess because they are so popular now we were rushed out so they could get our table.

I went here with my boyfriend and his sister and her friend. I found it on opentable and reviews were fabulous. We live in Dallas but were staying nearby for the night before heading back home. The food was fabulous and the service was great too. Our whole party loved the traditional vibe of the restaurant. I wish we had a place like this in Dallas. I’d go all the time!

The service, food presentation were good but we asked for the order to be spaced out, however nearly all arrived simultaneously- difficult to have time to savor individual dishes,
The tendency appears to move patrons through very quickly so spread out one’s order to catch your breath.
However an excellent selection of dishes and quality worth the pricing.
Do recommend eating at a later time to avoid young families with youngsters and the scrambling of small feet.
Reservations a must but expect a wait. Not necessarily the restaurant’s fault as eating habits can be less predictable due to ordering dishes over time.
Well worth a try for Sushi, sashimi and tempura dishes plus selection of sakis and beers.

Love this place....traditional atmosphere and sushi is top grade. Was a big disappointed they ran out of 2 of their specials... white salmon and king salmon. Be sure and wear socks..you have to take your shoes off. One of my LA area faves..............

Overall a pleasant dining experience - good sushi is definitely lacking in the MDR area, and the food is great and the ambiance is unique, with the recessed space under the table for your legs. While I appreciate the need to take off your shoes in the entryway, it creates a bit of a logistical nightmare for people entering and waiting (with shoes on), people taking their shoes off to get to the table, people putting shoes back on to go out, and all in about 20sq ft.

Anyhow, it was still worth it and I'll definitely be back, but with slip on shoes instead of laces...

Food is great I had a plethora of sushi rolls and sake it was great. Beware they do ask you take off shoes which isn’t a big deal to me but my husband and I sat at the sushi bar and when I say it’s elbow to elbow you have no space. The lady next to me turned her head and I got hit with a ponytail so it really took from my experience. Being comfortable is key to enjoying a meal. We will return and try the tables which is sitting on floor Indian style but hey as long as no hair is in my mouth and the food is good I’ll try.

Reservations a must! Excellent service, food brought quickly and quality is excellent. We’ve been dining here with previous Japanese owners in 1988 when it was Marina East. I not sure when new ownership (Korean)took over but it has been dramatically improved while preserving the traditional Japanese ambiance & cuisine. (I am Japanese)
