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.

    The oysters were not fresh; most likely thawed and seasoned to mask the fishy smell. Every other dish was mediocre. Wouldn’t go again.

    Service was poor. Clearly staff chose who to serve well and who not to serve well. Staff were more concerned about leaving on time than offering service (we had 8pm reservation, and closing was 10 pm). Noise level made conversation nearly impossible due to the yelling of the diners next door who had to overcome the loud choice of ambient music. All not surprising when considering we just returned from Japan and became accustomed to basic courtesy. This was the second time we experienced this level of service at Wokuni.

    Delicious fish, good value, and a great vibe -- it's a cheerful place. My only quibble is that my friend and I were unattended for 15-20 minutes at a time; perhaps the waiters have too many tables to cover? All that said, I'll return.

    お料理が新鮮で美味しく、楽しませていただきました。 ハッピーアワーの$8の日本酒もお料理に合っていて素晴らしかったです。 担当の女性スタッフの方の接客はとても心地が良く、写真も撮っていただき夫の誕生日の良い思い出となりました。 残念だったのは、担当ではない別の女性スタッフの方がちらし寿司が入った取り皿を私に声もかけず、勝手に下げてしまったことです。また、まだ食事中にもかかわらずトレーを下げようとしました。せっかく楽しんでいたのに、とても残念な気持ちになりました。

    The staff was excellent here! Very attentive and quick. We had a late dinner reservation and they were kind enough to let us stay a little longer and finish up our food and drinks after hours. All the appetizers were amazing, but I would recommend the Gyoza and the Salmon Tartar the most. For drinks try their Lychee Martini they were great! Will definitely be back, thank you for the great service.

    Had some friends meet me here for a post holiday lunch. The food tasted great. I had the “eel & avocado”, and “spicy yellowtail & avocado” rolls. They are generous with the avocado. Great presentation. The decor is raw wood, elegantly designed. Fabulous lighting. Great service.

    Very good and tasty experience in NYC. We booked the place in advance for a family dinner during our vacation in NY. The place is nice and the food overall outstanding. Good selection of raw fish, generally well prepared. To mention the Sencha tea not always available at other Japanese restaurant. The service was speedy enough and attentive.

    Wokuni is our go-to place for sushi and steak-don, both for dine-in and takeout/delivery. The happy hour sake is unbeatable, and so is the food. We'd go every day if we lived closer.

    From the moment we walked in, the experience was not worth the price tag. The entire restaurant smelled like fish. There is no interaction with the chefs at the counter, the sushi provided was basic and lacked the kind of innovation you expect for an omakase experience.
