    Our family have been going to Iroha for authentic Japanese for over 5 years and they never disappoint, the food is always super tasty and fresh, the Agedashi Tofu is the best, everything is well proportioned, the service very attentive and personable and the selection of regional Sake amazing. I highly recommend Iroha for a couples evening out or night out with the family.

    Overall disappointing. Started well with attentive wait staff and nice drinks. Ordered the share plate set menu and first few tasting plates delicious. Music was too loud though, making it difficult to have a conversation. The alarm on the microwave or stove went off loudly at regular intervals. Door was left open on a hot night, making it uncomfortable. We asked for the door to be closed and AC to be turned on - they agreed and we had half an hour of comfortable temperature before the AC was turned off and door opened again. As the restaurant filled up and got busy the gap between courses got longer and longer. Service to bring drink orders became super slow as well. We waited 30 minutes between the second-to-last and final dishes. The final dish was billed as a ‘main’ but was a single tiny serve of salmon between 3 people. We left still hungry after paying a big bill.

    A little disappointed with the meals as I didn’t feel it was value for the money spent. Meals were nice but were very small portions. Also felt rushed to finish all our meals to leave at the time allocated. Waitress was standing over us since the time we sat down at our table.

    The food was outstanding at Iroha! Three of us had the new Omakase dishes and each dish was better than the last - everything was delicious and beautifully presented. The saké we had was also excellent. Very warm and friendly service, restaurant is not too loud which we loved. Love this place, always a winner.

    I had booked a table for 2, appreciating that it was Window Seating High Tops. Instead we were put to a high top attached to the serving counter, in the way of people trying to pay their bills and without any space to accommodate any platters. To make matters worse, the top was sticky, so didn't feel clean. We left and went to another Japanese restaurant, newly opened in Westgarth which was awesome.
