First and last visit to Tora. This restaurant shares the DJ with Rosa Negra. We have eaten sushi and Tuna tartare at other restaurants, but this was the worse we have had in Cancun, and we visit Cancun on an annual basis. It tasted oily and fishy. We compare our visit to a fast food restaurant with a DJ. Very disappointing.

sinceramente es el mejor lugar, si miras a la laguna veras de noche las luces de la ciudad de cancun de fondo. la comida es muy deliciosa recomiendo mucho el salmón y el pot de trufas. el servicio es excepcional y es lo que hace que regrese y quede encantado. les recomiendo reservar para las 08:40 pm y ver a gusto el show de pirotecnia. el café es excelente. todo es excelente en ese lugar.

This was our first visit to Tora Mexico and it was an amazing meal and experience. Tora will become a yearly visit for us while in Cancun. Go early and catch the sunset over the lagoon. Amin (I hope I have the spelling correct) was very professional and attentive. He went above expectations to ensure our meal was wonderful. We went here for a family birthday celebration and Amin made sure our celebration was perfect. We loved the vegan options with every meal beyond expectations. I recommend the Kimchi roll and Vegetable Teppanyaki. Next year we look forward to trying out other restaurants from the same owner, Rosanegra and Taboo.

I would have given a 5. However, I was charged 15% gratuity without notice for a table of 1. I ate at the adjoining sister restaurant the night before, same scenario, and that was not the policy. I would have given 20%. The excuse was lame and the bias was obvious.

Best food in Cancun. Spectacular meal. We ordered the hamachi tartare, spicy beef skewers, and miso soup as appetizers, and black cod, ribeye, and asparagus for our mains. Literally would have ordered the entire menu, but we were full. Our waiter Alex was great.

In one word: Fantastic!. We went to their sister restaurant in Tulum (rosanegra) and decided to try out Tora.

It was amazing. Food was excellent, service above and beyond and the ambiance was great.

Highly recommend this to everyone!

It’s one of our favorite restaurants in Cancun. However the service has slipped. From the hostess giving me a blank stare when I reminded her of the notation for an outdoor table (I had to insist on speaking to the manager who did make the accommodation) to the moment that the GM comp’d the entire meal the service and hospitality were lacking.

Like making two follow up requests for my wife’s beer when my mixed drink was half consumed? To the server pouring her beer carelessly directly into the bottom of the glass producing 80% foam?

The appetizers were ok, however I had to flag the waiter that my sushi roll tasted fowl. However the replacement requested; two simple pieces of fish took way too long (it should have been rushed and clearly wasn’t) and worse was the wait for my refill cocktail which was served AFTER the replacement roll)!

And to add double insult, it was the wrong drink at that (Huh)? And the waiter questioned what was wrong (no cucumber and coriander in my original cocktail) PLUS he forgot the words “I’M SORRY”.

It was so embarrassing that the GM compd them meal and asked us to come back.

On a good note the lively music is always great (TIP: sit outside—and NOT under the roof overhang) so the sound was perfect! The sparklers at each table was a fabulous bit as were the fireworks show; especially when “Sweet Caroline” was followed with Frank Sinatra’s “New York” to the final blast of rockets!

This was the third time my husband and I have been to Tora's and each time the food, service and ambience was perfect. We have traveled a great deal and try to find restaurants whose cuisine reflects the culture of the country we are in. Tora does that and more. Upon our return to Cancun we will put this restaurant at the top of our list.

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.
