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 are from Chicago, we come for work sometimes and we found this gem. They take such good care of us whether we are sitting at the bar or a table. Last night we walked into their tuna auction without planning it, and we had the best dining experience either one of us have had. Ivan the bartender was amazing, and we feel like we got exceptional value. We won the tuna, and tried their different kinds of Sake. We love Wokuni!

    Roni was an excellent server, making appropriate and interesting recommendations. And always attentive. And smiling. And pleasant. The food quality and freshness was very very good. Portion size was also sensible. And the ambiance was nice, peaceful with a modestly interesting buzz. I’m a huge fan!

    Wonderful omakase experience! I went alone as I was up on a business trip. For the price, I felt it was a really great deal. The fish was as fresh as I’ve had in NYC, and the courses and amount of food far exceeded expectations. I had mapped out a late night pub to get a second meal (you know how light these meals can sometimes be!) but definitely didn’t need it. Left full and satisfied. Service was spectacular. The gentleman helping me at the back sushi bar anticipated my needs and was proactive and attentive without being overbearing. Fantastic job!

    One the 4 or 5 Michelin rated sushi joint in NYC, yet completely overlooked. Made me think twice about posting a review, I’d hate to think of not getting a table here, ever! Truly off the charts good! Fish flown in fresh from Tokyo almost daily! It’ll cost you, but worth every penny. Glad I’m a regular!!!

    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.
