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.

    Fresh and well-presented Japanese seafood. Get some fish dishes while you're here, it's likely to not disappoint. The price is decent for midtown.

    The upsides: the food was really very good, not crazily priced, and the dining room was visually appealing. The downside: the hostess. She was inexplicably rude and cantankerous. My friend had arrived a few minutes before me. The hostess asked if he had a reservation, to which he replied yes (presumably giving my name). She sat him at a booth, at which he left his coat and went to the washroom. When he returned, she told him that that was not his table, again asking him if he had a reservation. He replied yes again, and that they had just had this conversation. She replied that she was too busy to keep track of everyone's comings and goings and insisting that he move, implicitly accusing him of having wandered in off the street and seating himself. Very weird, and especially so for a place that really was not busy. When I arrived, I wanted to hang my overcoat due to the very low chairs (my coat dragged on the ground) and not wanting it to pick up the very heavy kitchen smell of the place. She was very brusque and unapologetic in her negative reply. So, I was prepared for my friend's story. During dinner, she kept trying to remove the one menu we had between us from the table (grabbing, not asking) until I told firmly told her that we were keeping it. That said the food was solid, and the rest of the staff very pleasant. By the end of the meal she had disappeared from the front desk. Perhaps a higher power had intervened.

    We came for drinks and sat at the sushi bar. Server Taku gave us sake tasting to try and we tried Kid, Denshin and Kuheiji. The service is always phenomenal, fast and friendly. Server Joe took care of us with the last round of sake order and explained the sake Denshin Yuki to us. I definitely recommend this place for amazing selection of premium sake and sushi.

    The food we had was mediocre at best. We both had the special chirashi on the menu costing nearly $60 apiece, but it didn't have a single good size sliced raw fish in it. Not the chirashi we have come to know over decades.

    My friend and I wanted a sushi lunch in the area we were sightseeing in. I made Opentable lunch reservations at 1:00 on a Wednesday, worked out perfectly. The restaurant was beautiful and seemed very clean. When we arrived they only had a few tables open, we were greeted and seated right away. Service was a bit spotty in the beginning, took a bit for a server to come over. We ordered hot sake while we perused the menu on our phones. The sake took forever to be served even after asking 3 times. The lunch deals were great and very reasonably prices. We ordered the Salmon Don and the Kaisen Don along with a Hamachi Kama. The rice dishes all came with soup, salad and edamame. All the dishes came out hot, fresh and tasting greatly. Love this place! We would definitely come back next time in NYC. Atmosphere: trendy upscale Japanese restaurant. Service: OK, a bit spotty. Food: excellent.

    The spicy fried fish head is excellent, very crispy and the flavours are perfect with a hint of spice. Waygu skewer is a bit stringy and not easy to chew. The king crab hotpot in general is very nice. The soup is a little salty. Noodle’s texture is spot on with just the right amount of chewiness. The sencha is a little disappointing. It’s a small pot and I didn’t find the aroma very special but the price is high.

    The sushi was good and solid. I was very disappointed with the dessert. The cupcake was stale and was obviously premade from a bakery and thus not fresh. A restaurant of this caliber should have solid desserts.

    Went for the first time, table for two. The service was extremely slow and everything my friend ordered came out wrong…she ordered a gin martini and got vodka, she ordered the 7 piece sushi + roll platter and made it very clear that she could not do spicy and she got a spicy tuna roll which she sent back and then realized that the chef had embedded wasabi into each piece of sushi. Overall not a good dining experience and i would not recommend it.

    We are very happy with dining experience with your restaurant. Only thing you might improve is timing of serving that main order to be served the same time with everyone in the group. My order was served before everyone else's even before appetizer. We will come back!!!

    The owner/manager with the ponytail exhibited some obviously discriminatory behavior that really took the joy out of what was my mother's birthday treat (she loves sushi). From the get go, we noticed he was going around to greet and chat with the guests EXCEPT us. The white people of course as well as the other Asian guests who happened to be speaking either Chinese or Japanese. My mother and I happened to be speaking Korean. He was super cordial and friendly and checked in on the other tables alllllll around us but somehow didn't see us sitting there I guess? (/s) It really left a sour taste and ruined what was supposed to be a nice birthday dinner for my mother who was visiting out of town. I 100% do NOT recommend this spot if you're a non-white or Korean person or someone who's going to publicly speak Korean. Racism is racism period.
