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.

    Buena comida y bonito lugar. Pésimo servicio al cliente , nuestra reserva era 9:15 y nos pasaron a nuestra mesa 9:25. Cuando dieron las 9:35 la mesera ya quería que ordenáramos nuestros platillo porque cocinan lo cierran 9:45 nos empezó a gritar que era la última llamada y que ya iba a cerrar la comanda de la comida siendo que 9:45 era la hora máxima para ordenar. Terminamos de comer y ya nos había llevado la cuenta a las 10 cuando queríamos otro trago hizo malas caras y quejándose. Buen lugar pero mal servicio

    The service was a bit slow. Some of the dishes lacked balance. The agedashi tofu salad was underwhelming. The fried tofu was soggy. The King crab was too salty, and it was not edible. We ordered grilled eel and only got three pieces for $13. I think it was over price for an appetizer course. Overall I was disappointed. The food was not consistent.

    This was the first time I have been to Wokuni. It was a great meal and the service was excellent. I haven’t been able to find a really good Japanese restaurant in many areas as well as in the area. There are a lot of high end sushi restaurants. Wokuni had some of the best sashimi I have had and fresh. The tempura which is also something we generally gauge Japanese places by was very good also. Crispy and light tempura is always a good indication of how they prepare their dishes. The chicken karaage (fried chicken pieces) was really well done also. Again a light and crispy coating which would be good on any fried chicken. The wagyu steak was really tender. It literally was one of the best steaks I have had and that is considering other wagyu I have had in other steak houses and Japanese restaurants. This is my favorite Japanese restaurant and can’t wait to get back to NY to dine here again!!!!

    Warm reception and attentive service. Our lunch meal was delicious and enjoyed the classic Japanese dishes we ordered, from Agedashi, Tempura Moriwase and Unagi Don. The Matcha medley dessert was really refreshing and a great finish to our meal. Will continue to return to dine here.

    Wokuni used to be amazing, however, that has changed for the worse. The waiter was rushing us to finish all in 30 minutes from arrival, was snotty and condescending. Sushis did not seem fresh, but prepared before. What a disappointment given how expensive they are!
