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.

A great Japanese restaurant in my neighborhood. The fish is very fresh and the options are great.

The ambiance is zen-like and a nice place to have a quick lunch or dinner.

One of my daughter's favorite restaurants based on their chicken skewers and mochi — one of my favorite places for sushi and the shiratama zenzai, which is up there with the best desserts in NYC. Great service, too.

Wokuni is a more affordable, nobu menú like option in culinary starved East midtown. Good selection of hot and cold dishes. The acoustics aren’t great so it can get loud when crowded, but the service is attentive and the sushi is top quality. Also like the gyoza, skewers and sea bass!

Happy hour deal is pretty good, however oyster quality is not stable (we visited a coupld of times, but this day each peaces were small and poor quality). Sake glass (pouring) is very small as well compare to other Japanese restaurant by the glass...

Beautifully designed restaurant. Very striking as you first enter. Sat at the sushi bar which is much wider than most and like a table top so you have plenty of room. Very comfortable. Really excellent food and service. Not rushed at all. Will definitely return.

Came to Wokuni because I appreciated their interest in serving sustainably farmed tuna from Japan. It did not disappoint. Got a lunch special with tuna, yellowtail, salmon, uni, and tuna tartare. All were amazing, including the salmon (which I am particularly picky about). My girlfriend got a grilled salmon, which was fantastic, and we shared a fried tofu appetizer which was excellent as well.
We sat at the counter, which isn't the most pretty seat but being about to watch the chef's prep and plate fish is always a fun view when eating sushi. The service was excellent and attended to our needs promptly. The entire meal only cost about $60+tip, which is an absolute steal for quality sushi in NYC.
I look forward to coming here again and trying the omakase (only available at dinners).

The food it self was not well balanced with the flavored. Saggy fatty fries and tamboura. Wagyu steak which was too salty, and salads with no flavor at all. Very disappointing

Great value. Very good food and tastefully decorated, but wasnt concerned with my teenaged children dressing more casually than is like. Highly recommend for family or date night.

Food was excellent. Sampled both versions of uni sushi and they were.both creamy and nutty with a melt in your mouth experience without being overpowering. Would definitely recommend and go back. Service was incredible. Staff is also very attentive without being pushy.

Even though we made a reservation for 7 to catch the happy hour special (as per opentable), amd we arrived on time. the hostess did not seat us until 7:05 and when we asked the waitress for the happy hour oysters she said we could not order from that menu because it was now 7:08. If you are going to advertise a special and then not allow your customers to use said special because you did not have their table ready, despite it being only 8 minutes later, that is reflecting poorly on you. May not come back because our waitress was not nice or welcoming.

Food was excellent and we had the chef’s signature special, for $75 per the menu and intended for two. I was very surprised when the bill arrived it was actually $75 per person for the chef’s special.
