We, Tokyo Ichiban Foods, started our business in the restaurant industry. We continue to pursue serving quality food that will delight our guests, and we cherish our relationship with them. Today, pivoting from our strong origin, we are also expanding our scope of business to aqua-farming, seafood processing and distribution.
We oversee the process through professional culinary eyes, from when the fish is cultivated until it is served to our guests. This allows us to build a sustainable and traceable system that will lead to higher customer satisfaction.
Japanese cuisine is blessed with opulent nature from both the mountains and the sea, which brings us rich seafood. Our wish is to bring quality seafood and Japanese food culture to the world, making the global food culture even richer and stronger.

Food is excellent: this would be ranked as a quality fish izakaya even if it were in Japan. Well attended by trained staff: they know what they serve, and can explain where the fish was caught and how they are to be cooked. Management perfect.

I have been a few times but the food seems to be on a decline. What started off as an amazing restaurant with fresh fish, the quality has gone down recently. Very disappointed with the omakase sashimi on my last visit.

Very good food....especially the daily specials and the seaweed salad. The service this visit was just okay as the restaurant was very busy. A good value given the freshness and quality of the fish that is served.

Service is superb! The waitstaff was very attentive and helpful in describing and recommending menu items. I especially loved the grilled black cod, so delicate and sweet with the special miso sauce. The sashimi bowl was beautifully presented and the fish was very fresh and tasty. The cold sake was overfilled in a box so I got to enjoy a rimmed fill glass and more. This is definitely my new favorite restaurant in the city and I can’t wait to return real soon!

Service was terrific the tables are very close together and there was a very loud talking couple next to us that made it difficult to have a conversation. We requested a booth but were told we couldn’t have one. It was being held for two women drinking at the bar. The other booths that were open were for parties of four and not for us. So while we do want to go back the seating is a problem.

Arigato set was well with it. Hot fried chicken was delicious. The edamame was room temperature, I wish it was hot. And the dry sake was perfect for beginners:

Took my dad for Father’s Day.
Love the service, the food, the sake... the music was a little too “club” for my taste (maybe in my 20s I would have liked it more... but alas I’m more mature and my taste has elevated). I feel that the quality of the food, service, and sake selection is top notch.
I will most certainly come back.

Overall I was very happy with the experience. Nice open space and roomy as well. The sushi/sashimi were very fresh.. only comment I have is that the black cod entree was $30 but the portion was tiny..

Basically I’d gladly go again but def staying away from the cod!

We had an excellent time at Wokuni for a birthday dinner. The service was prompt and our server checked on us consistently but not too often that we felt crowded. We went later in the evening so the noise level was very low which was nice because we were able to carry out a conversation at a comfortable level. The ambiance in the restaurant was lovely with low lighting and the booth seating felt semi private because of the dividers in between each section.

The food was very good, we had a combination of several types of rolls, sashimi, and oysters. They even brought out ice cream free of charge for my boyfriends birthday. Good spot for evening dining or a quiet night with a nice meal.

Excellent -has become my go-to in Mid-town. Only complaint I would have is the Front-Desk lady somes off as a little rude. I totally understand the place is busy - but to tell us (each guest) that there is a 2-hour limit on the table was a bit much!. It makes me think twice about bringing friends in for dinner.

Children’s menu was not an ordinary “put things kids like” dish. Every food was an adult level or more and with a hidden surprise. All within 10 dollars. This is a real Japanese authentic restaurant.

Incredible service and equally incredible food. We had the premium omakase (our first time) and it was awesome. We scanned the restaurant to just get an idea of what other people were ordering (for our next visits) and noted that most customers were also ordering omakase! It was great and would definitely recommend highly to people!
