Food was good, but nothing special. The staff was nice but they have a lot small problems. I had a feeling that is completly mess and they do not know what they are doing. Finally i was very surprised when i had to pay 1,400 mxn for two dronks gin and tonic....

The food was exceptional and beautifully presented. The service was very attentive and the restaurant is very elegant. We sat outside overlooking the water and it was simply breathtaking. This was our second visit and look forward to visiting again and also trying their other restaurants: Rosa Negra and Taboo.

Had an amazing experience! Definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Very detailed restaurant and we were impressed the service, especially to Alfredo our waiter. This restaurant is a must do for anybody visiting Cancun. And of course the food was amazing !

Everything about this restaurant was 5 stars, except for the sushi. While the sushi was good, it was not great. It could just be that me and my wife are spoiled with exceptional sushi restaurants where we live in Philadelphia. I would 100% come back, but probably order some different Japanese dishes.

Tora Cancun nos sorprendió con la calidad de su cocina, su presentacion, y su ambiente.
Lo que no nos cuadro mucho fueron los precios, para algunos platillos, los precios justos, para algunos otros platillos, los precios demasiado elevados y fuera del mercado Cancunense.
Tora Cancun, como muchos otros restaurantes de la zona sobreviven durante los meses de poca afluencia turística de los comensales locales... y simplemente estos preferimos productos de calidad a precios justos. No muchos restaurantes sobreviven en Cancun despues de 20 o 24 meses, por este simple hecho, la ciudad vive del turismo, y sobrevive de los locales en temporada baja. Hay otras ofertas en la ciudad de comida Japonesa de altisima calidad, ojo!
Nos pareció excelente el servicio de nuestro mesero! el capitán de meseros jamás se presentó por la mesa, cosa inusual en restaurantes de este calibre.

Very cool place. Food is excellent. Language/communication is an issue. Asian menu primarily Large number English speaking patrons with staff whose translating both. Understandable mistakes happen. Very loud. Ordering is slow but food comes out quick. Definitely worth going just some things may need adjustment with staff and service.

Nos tocó una muy mala experiencia, el restaurante estaba lleno y no tenían la capacidad para atenderlo. Pésimo servicio, no respetaron nuestra reservación. éramos una mesa de 10 y tardaron una hora en pasarnos. Adentro nos dieron nada más un menú para todos por que no tenían más y la comida tardó más de dos horas en llegar.

We were on holiday and the food and atmosphere was exceptional !! Our waiter MeMo was the best but the kitchen made one of the Sushi rolls with avacado after we were asked about food allergies and stated several
Times we could not have avocado for my employers daughter ... the roll
Came with avocado ... Memo was so worried and so apologetic .. the kitchen staff need to really understand the level of issues this could’ve caused medically !!

First time to Tora for my wife and I. Food was VERY good. Spicy tuna roll was top of the line. Spider roll was excellent. Salmon Two Ways was just average. Great selection of wine and beer. Drink service was slow...I should never have an empty glass. We will definitely be back.
