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.

My 17 year old son wanted to go here for his 18th bday so we planned this night for 3 months. You might think with that much anticipation it would never meet our expectations. Omg we were wrong it was wonderful! We make it a tradition from now on!! I am so thankful to them for making his 18th bday fabulous.

Was served brown, fishy tasting salmon that the waiter attempted to excuse as "a matter of taste". I know sushi. No respectable restaurant would ever serve salmon that looked like that.

Second time return to this dinning post. Waiter recognized us right away. Great and attentive service. It is delicious and fresh seafood, it has good choices of Izakaya menu selections. I am considered critical but this one passes all. I surely recommend this place.

Restaurants in New York always need coat rooms - this one has none which makes seating uncomfortable since you sit with whatever you are carrying at the time.

We were looking for a "NYC style" supper within walking distance after enjoying the new AKC Museum of the Dog at 101 Park Avenue. Open Table suggested Wokuni, and we were not disappointed. The ambiance was modern with style and very clean. Our waiter told us that this restaurant is a small chain based in Asia. All/most of the fish is flown in from their own farms. We had sushi, a tuna roll, and a main dish that was entirely new to us with ginger, cilantro and a white fish that we had never heard of and we wanted to lick the plate. It was an excellent value for a NYC meal. Great service. I will remember this restaurant and would HIGHLY recommend it to those visiting AKC-MOD as it is maybe 2 blocks away from there.

Everything is solid. Japanese culture of attentiveness comes through well here. The tall ceilings and lighting make it a relaxing fun place.

One main consideration is that many of the dishes are billed as family style. When you have mixed company, there is a social awkwardness of who gets what piece and some dishes have more pieces than others. Considering the price of the dish, it makes for unneeded stress depending on who you are with.

Probably will not be recommending this place to a friend. We ordered a glut of dishes based on pictures online and reviews. A few impressions off the top of my head: 1. The food came out alarmingly fast. I know sushi is uncooked, but the speed at which some of these dishes were dropped off makes me think they were premade and sitting around in the fridge. 2. Flavors were okay. Dishes are photogenic. They photograph better than they taste. Presentation was generally top notch. 3. Service was cold. Our server was very no nonsense and seemed disinterested. Overall, I would rate 3.5 stars for the experience and food together. Some good dishes, some a bit disappointing. Get the king crab with Cajun butter, get the Long Island duck, get the sashimi. Avoid the skewers and ceviche (basically a corn salad with bits of fish and overdone shrimp buried within).

We went for dinner. All of booth were full, but the house manager was very nice and when we asked for a quiet table he took us to the back room which was much nicer and quieter. All dishes were good and reasonably priced. The only thing was that waitress never came to fill our green tea cup and we had to keep asking few times. Otherwise we enjoyed the dinner very much and we will probably go back.

Tried Wokuni for its gentle prices -- but you get what you pay for. Food was okay, not wonderful, and the servers spoke so quietly that my wife and I asked each other what they had said. Neither of us knew.

Normally firing on all cylinders here but this was an off night with inconsistent and erratic, even rude service, plates all brought out immediately, many sold-out items on the menu, and invasive music playing... hoping this is not a trend. The quality of the food was good -- hopefully this was just an off night in other areas

Omakase was soo amazing, I had to come back! Wonderful place for a date night, but also great if you are a proclaimed, "Sushi Foodie Extrodinare" ! Amazing O Toro, especially knowing how much other places charge, usually $20/piece, and with this meal, they give soo much, it is truely a special experience, I suggest sitting at the sushi counter and watching the chefs work, they are amazing! Ownership is amazing, they own their own fish farm in the ocean off of Japan, so that is why this is such a special experience! All the sushi just melted in your mouth like butter! Kuni-son is my Hero! Thank you for bring back reasonably priced, grade AAA+++ sushi!

Great dining experience. We were very impressed with the service. Food tasted amazing, and came out quickly, despite it being Valentines Day. Takashi, our server, provided excellent service. He came around just the right amount of times, and never came around when we had food in our mouths. 10/10 overall, but even higher with rice.
