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.

We love this place, one of our favorites in Manhattan. Terrific food, serene ambience, professional polite staff, all at good value. Was out of NYC for awhile, and on our return Wokuni was top of our list for first meal.

Takashi was our waiter and he took super good care of us! Food was great, a little bit on the pricier side. Worth it! Would come back again but maybe just for special occasions!

おしゃれ店内と日本語もあるメニューに懐かしさを感じました‼︎
お食事の内容も日本で食べれるいわゆる少し良い居酒屋のようなメニューでした。日本語の話せる店員さんもいらっしゃって安心しました。お寿司もお刺身も美味しかったです。値段はやはり少し高め…2人で日本酒とビール、梅酒一杯ずつと一般的な量のアラカルトを注文して料金は二万円程でした。
アメリカで日本食をと思えば仕方ないですがお安くはないですね。でも美味しかったです!!

We love barachirashi which they only serve for lunch. Fish is very fresh and looks amazing, tastes just as good as it looks.

Went for happy hour and it was a great value. Had 3 glasses of wine @7 dollars each and a dizen delicious oysters. The tuna tartare was out of this world and we reordered it. The other dishes were excellent too. Wish there was more ventilation against covid but building controls thermostat. Will definitely be back but not too comfortable eating indoors there until vaccine.

Wokuni has returned! My friends and I have been longing for our favorite Japanese restaurant with the amazing luncheon sets and great dinners in a sleek, modern setting. The food is as outstanding as ever. Impeccably clean with proper distancing makes for a safe setting

I dined at Wokuni for the first time last night. It was a wonderful experience. They have an extensive dinner menu. I wanted to try everything. I ordered a sushi omakase. Every piece of sushi was unique and delicious. Good service and ambience.

Probably one of the best Japanese restaurant in Manhattan.
We took the $95 menu and it was awesome!
Definitely worth it, plus, the price is completely fair for the quality and the quantity!

Wokuni was awesome. Every dish we had was super fresh. Oysters, sashimi, and eventually sushi were all fantastic. We got dumplings as well which weren’t too heavy and were fried nicely. It was also fun to watch the chef prepare our food at the open sushi counter from afar. Great service as well. We will come back to try the Omakase at some point for sure.

With covid, sat outside, so ambiance isn't what it normally is.

Food is always delicious, the place is delightful. A bit pricy, but you get what you pay for in some sense, especially with the fish / sushi, Yum.
I tend to go for business meals, when expensing. Definitely will visit again.

I tried their Omakase menu. Totally worth the value and the service is great. The waiter was nice and explained the way to enjoy every dish when he brought it to the table. Love the experience. Also have a one-dollar oyster deal during happy hour.
