Iori has been around for 14 years and has featured previously in Canberra’s Top Restaurant lists. Service is professional and personal. Director Mamoru is ‘hands on’ and friendly and chats with diners. He assured me that he tries to be as flexible as possible. This was true as we were able to swap the Miso Soup in the Ninja Banquet for Nasu Dengaku – Eggplant.
While the banquets (starting at $40 per person) are a delicious and easy option that let groups of at least four, try a range of dishes, like all banquets, you end up with way more food than you might otherwise order (making it hard not to overeat) and you may not try the most delicious options. I was told by xxx that it is possible to order a banquet for four to share between more people, which could be a good solution, but an alternative to a banquet that still allows everyone to try a variety, but to also stay comfortable, is to order specific dishes and share.
The best dishes from the Ninja banquet were the :
Sushi & Sashimi with Special Sushi Rolls
Crab, Prawn and Vegetable Tempura
$40 pp Ninja Banquet for Six People
