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.

I’ve dined at quite a few izakayas in Japan and I understand that dishes are brought to the table as soon as they come out of the kitchen, sometimes in no particular order, but our experience at Wokuni was a bit ridiculous. We ordered five dishes and they all arrived at more-or-less the same time. There was barely enough room on the table, which felt really uncomfortable. It also made us feel like we had to rush. Overall a disappointing experience.

Food is great, waiter was super helpful and if you can get a booth seat it's roomy and comfortable. I highly recommend their black cod. Buttery and delicious with sweet miso sauce. Yum! Their sashimi are also very fresh and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The service is very fast and feel free to ask any question, waiter will help!

They were friendly and efficient. We ordered a mix of lunch platter among a party of eight. All the fish were fresh, the guest really enjoyed the starters, especially the house prepared tuna salad. The place is not noise or packed but during lunch it gets full quickly; so, I recommend making a reservation in advance for a larger party of over 4.

They serve Only a partial menu during lunch, something which is not written on the website. Food was OK, place was quiet, but it’s not someplace I would regularly visit if they don’t have a more extensive lunch menu.

We thought the sushi bar would be like a normal Japanese sushi bar. Well it wasn't. The cooks behind the bar were not just making sushi. The seemed to be overall cooks, who were also making sushi. One of them was actually very unfriendly, making faces whenever we asked something and giving us the impression that we weren't really welcomed at the bar - terrible feeling.

A stellar meal. Excellent quality fish, served both raw (sushi and sashimi) and cooked (grilled, fried, steamed, etc.). Everything we ordered was delicious, providing a wealth of flavors and textures. Our server was friendly, attentive and extremely helpful. Additional perk: Japanese whiskey highballs on draft!

After our waiter explained to us about their Happy Hour, we ordered the oysters about 15 min before the cut off time, which is 7pm. Then, 5 min later, we were told that they ran out of oysters. I find that rather unacceptable. They should either tell us before we ordered, or provide some complimentary appetizer as a gesture. No.
Then, we ordered the Premium Omakase set. My understanding was Omakase should be prepared by the chef as we sit by the counter, which we requested and got. The chef would hand make each course and hand it right to you. Everything is from the fresh catch of the day, so one wouldn't know what might be served. As it turned out, their Omakase was just non-glorified set menu. As such, I would not consider it good value at all.
Overall, underwhelming. It's not bad, if you go a la carte, but do manager your expectation.

Three of us went to eat premium omakase and it was awful. The fish and ingredients were not fresh. We did not understand why hotpot was part of the omakase. We decided to stop eating in the middle and go to the different restaurant. I would never come back to eat at this place.

3 of us went for the happy hour. Price was good but not much choices. Found some pieces of the shell on the oysters. We tried ordering dinner as only 1 of us wanted Omakase. However, waiter told us that all of us had to order the same Omakase. So we ordered the $75 Signature Omakase. All Omakase I ordered, the dinner came with chef specials with out of ordinary quality of fresh fish/seafood. Wokuni version of Omakase came similar to testing menu. 1st course was sashimi which was excellent; however, only 4 version: tuna, salmon, yellow tail, & one more (don't remember). 2nd course was so so, 3 separate kind of appetizer (size of a quarter). 3rd course was the sushi, very fresh but very typical fish again. 4th course was shabu shabu, very so so. used shrimp heads as part of the broth, very fishy. last course is the desert, which was good. Overall, I would go there again for the sushi/sashimi only. Never order Omakase, not worth it.
