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.

We’ve had better sushi from the supermarket. Ambiance as pleasant, too bad the food didn’t live up to the atmosphere. Way too noisy.

Overall, the food and ambiance were exceptional. The service however, left a lot to be desired. After being seated, we were ignored for almost 15 minutes while (at least three) parties that arrived after us were attended to almost immediately. Finally a server arrived with 3 glasses of water, placed them on the table and turned to walk away. We interrupt his flight from our table with a request to order drinks and appetizers to which he obliged. Once he returned which our starters, I spoke with him concerning our displeasure to start and our expectations moving forward. To his credit, he was amicable for the rest of the service.

It goes without saying that it is important to make all guests feel welcome. I am not sure what was the oversight that caused our table to not have the same level of attentiveness that others received on arrival. We had reservations, arrived on time and was seated promptly. Was having wit

Disappointed in the quality of the fish. The lunch sets are a great price but we’ll go elsewhere in the future for a higher price point and better quality food.

I think this is the best restaurant in Manhattan to have raw fish. The place has two Itamae chefs. They apply some methods that take order away from fish. They make their own ice cream, and in my opinion, serve the best anmitsu (red bean dessert with seaweed jelly and shiratama rice cakes, served with vanilla ice cream and dark sugar syrup) in the city.

We love love love Wokuni! Unfortunately, yesterday’s service was a bit subpar- we felt like we were being rushed and we just did not get the service that we are used to. We kept having to flag down a waiter to cater to us. The food as always was 10/10 and really saved the night.

As a Japanese American originally from Los Angeles, I've spent much of my 10 years in New York looking for a satisfactory Japanese culinary experience. Wokuni far exceeds that and offers some of the finest fish I've had not only in Manhattan, but in the Western world as a whole.

As a full time professional Jazz musician, you can imagine my income is neither consistent nor bountiful. Even so, Wokuni offers such quality of foods at prices even affordable to myself and colleagues.

My only complaint is with the music they choose to play while you're dining. It's often very electronic and/or highly sophisticated without the sense of organic creativity I'd normally pair with such excellent ingredients.

One of my favorite locations to eat at for all special occasions!
