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 already brought more than 10 people to Wokuni. All of them love the dishes and service of Wokuni.
The lady at the front was very cute, and she was very nice for us. Thanks.
I will bring another friend again.

Superb Japanese fish. Get there early and have a Wokuni Don, for a fine array of fish and tempura, and a terrific value. Their miso soup is the best. (Early means seated by 11:30 and get your order in - - they only make 8 Wokuni Don per day.)

The service was very poor. The waiter got our order and served us the wrong food. When we asked that he would rectify this he charged us for his mistake. For a restaurant that wants a Michelin star, I would say they are far away from it.

Fantastic restaurant if you want to experience the best quality fish available. Beautifully prepared and everything delicious. They offers a variety of fish that you don't commonly see available in the USA. If you're a true sushi lover, you can't get much better than this. Even the shrimp tempura was on another level. Highly recommended.

The food was excellent, fish was so fresh, sashimi melted in your mouth. The ambience is sophisticated and yet very simple. Noise level a bit high with music playing in the background which I would stop if I were the restaurant’s manager. Better to dine without loud music. Hlglhy recommend

The service is so bad…I was very very disappointed. He didn’t even wanna talk to me or recommend anything, only a few seconds he said do you order or not. Feel like because we are Asian. He was so energetic with white customers, talking for 10+ minutes….I was so mad and left quickly

Always a great place. Friendly and courteous staff, great food and atmosphere. Fresh fish from Japan is remarkable. Koichi-san as the manager, and Jo-san as the service made it a very nice evening for us.

Excellent food and service. Everything came out very quickly (maybe too quickly but that’s better than the opposite). Sashimi, spicy salmon role, shrimp tempura, wagyu skewers - all delicious. Would definitely go back.

Great sashimi and tempura veggies. Tried the grilled tofu, but it wasn't our favourite. We'd have the creamy chilli prawns again.

The restaurant was nice, but much more expensive than anticipated. The portions were much smaller and so we had to order multiple dishes to build a proper meal. The food was good, but the portions could have been bigger especially for the price.

Even though we were told the table was needed after one hour and 45min when we were seated, we were allowed to stay way beyond that which was much appreciated.
