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 Wokuni-don is as excellent as always. A bit pricy but the quality is truly stunning. Service is spotless. Will visit again next month.

I’ve been here before and this time it was just sub par. I doubt I’ll come back. We sat there for 20 minutes before someone even walked over and it wasn’t very busy. Not even a glass of water or a hello I’ll be with you.

Next and more importantly the fish was not fresh. That’s what I loved about the times I had been here before but this time you could tell by the color that the fish was starting to turn and the texture reinforced this.

Better to throw out the fish than give it to customers. You just lost a loyal one because of the poor quality.

This was so far the best restaurant for raw fish that I went to in NYC. They have professional Itamaes; they treat fish in a peculiar way to take away the fishy smell. The waiter is amiable, he even remembered me from the last visit, the appearance of the dishes is gorgeous. Miso soup was delicious. I highly recommend this place.

Although they offer omakase , it’s not really their thing. It was disjointed and all over the place. I will say that the sushi and shashimi were very good. Good portion size and very fresh. Outstanding uni and o toro. However, service was inconsistent and challenging. Overall a 3.

It was my nanny’s 88th BD and they made it very special. They gave her enough time to eat (it takes time for her to eat), never felt pressured to be slow customers. Food was excellent and service was very good. I’m just surprised there were many napkins and toilet paper on the floor of bathroom. Otherwise excellent like always.

Quality/freshness was on point. Sushi rolls were good. Scallops were overcooked a little on the chewy side. Salmon sashimi was finest quality. Service was lacking. We had to continually ask to refill water and remove plates. Wait staff wasn't friendly or inviting. Don't think I will return again.

We love this place, one of our favorites in Manhattan. Terrific food, serene ambience, professional polite staff, all at good value. Was out of NYC for awhile, and on our return Wokuni was top of our list for first meal.

おしゃれ店内と日本語もあるメニューに懐かしさを感じました‼︎
お食事の内容も日本で食べれるいわゆる少し良い居酒屋のようなメニューでした。日本語の話せる店員さんもいらっしゃって安心しました。お寿司もお刺身も美味しかったです。値段はやはり少し高め…2人で日本酒とビール、梅酒一杯ずつと一般的な量のアラカルトを注文して料金は二万円程でした。
アメリカで日本食をと思えば仕方ないですがお安くはないですね。でも美味しかったです!!

Went for happy hour and it was a great value. Had 3 glasses of wine @7 dollars each and a dizen delicious oysters. The tuna tartare was out of this world and we reordered it. The other dishes were excellent too. Wish there was more ventilation against covid but building controls thermostat. Will definitely be back but not too comfortable eating indoors there until vaccine.
