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.

    This was a TERRIBLE dining experience- wish I could have my date night and money back. We had an 8:30 reservation and received a call from the restaurant around 8 asking if we could arrive early as they wanted to shut down early for the evening. We should have just canceled immediately. We went early and were seated by 815. We were then initially told that we couldn’t order the omakase because they were closing the kitchen. We complained that we had a reservation (AND WERE EARLY) so they went ahead with the order. Everything was rushed and felt like plates were stuffed in the table in an effort to move us along. The food was fine but nothing special, especially given I could hardly taste as we were being rushed along. Do not recommend visiting - what a disappointment for a date night

    I had the ten-don and it was pretty good. the tempura wasn't super oily and the batter was just right. I just wish that there were other vegetables besides the shishito pepper.

    Wokuni serves very fresh, clean, high-quality sushi, sashimi, and hot entrees. The servers are friendly, and the atmosphere is sleek but welcoming. The luncheon specials provide great value. This is an excellent place for Japanese food in midtown.

    When I walked into the restaurant… There was a smell of fish and not a nice smell. That concerned me. The overall experience is fine. Nothing special. The Hamachi collar was a bit overcooked, but everything else was good enough.

    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.
