Our local friends recommended Tori Tori, lauding it as one of the most authentic Japanese restaurants in Mexico City. The entrance is a set of ultra black and inconspicuous heavy-duty doorway, surrounded by vines and greenery. There's no real sign, so walking in felt like stumbling across a royal secret garden. The setting was nothing but beautiful - postmodern decor, striking minimalist architecture combined with a liberal amount of green flora and fauna.
The food - very average and a little less than authentic. Decent for the prices compared to anywhere in the U.S. or Asia.
However, impressive environment and atmosphere. Great for a business meeting or a special occasion. Will recommend for the outstanding service and charming setting.
