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.

They were friendly and efficient. We ordered a mix of lunch platter among a party of eight. All the fish were fresh, the guest really enjoyed the starters, especially the house prepared tuna salad. The place is not noise or packed but during lunch it gets full quickly; so, I recommend making a reservation in advance for a larger party of over 4.

Very good service. Definitely go for happy hour. Awesome deals from 5-7pm. The sushi rolls were okay. Nothing special. The atmosphere was excellent. Would definitely come back and recommend this place to a friend. Good for groups or date night.

They serve Only a partial menu during lunch, something which is not written on the website. Food was OK, place was quiet, but it’s not someplace I would regularly visit if they don’t have a more extensive lunch menu.

We thought the sushi bar would be like a normal Japanese sushi bar. Well it wasn't. The cooks behind the bar were not just making sushi. The seemed to be overall cooks, who were also making sushi. One of them was actually very unfriendly, making faces whenever we asked something and giving us the impression that we weren't really welcomed at the bar - terrible feeling.

A stellar meal. Excellent quality fish, served both raw (sushi and sashimi) and cooked (grilled, fried, steamed, etc.). Everything we ordered was delicious, providing a wealth of flavors and textures. Our server was friendly, attentive and extremely helpful. Additional perk: Japanese whiskey highballs on draft!

After our waiter explained to us about their Happy Hour, we ordered the oysters about 15 min before the cut off time, which is 7pm. Then, 5 min later, we were told that they ran out of oysters. I find that rather unacceptable. They should either tell us before we ordered, or provide some complimentary appetizer as a gesture. No.
Then, we ordered the Premium Omakase set. My understanding was Omakase should be prepared by the chef as we sit by the counter, which we requested and got. The chef would hand make each course and hand it right to you. Everything is from the fresh catch of the day, so one wouldn't know what might be served. As it turned out, their Omakase was just non-glorified set menu. As such, I would not consider it good value at all.
Overall, underwhelming. It's not bad, if you go a la carte, but do manager your expectation.

Three of us went to eat premium omakase and it was awful. The fish and ingredients were not fresh. We did not understand why hotpot was part of the omakase. We decided to stop eating in the middle and go to the different restaurant. I would never come back to eat at this place.

3 of us went for the happy hour. Price was good but not much choices. Found some pieces of the shell on the oysters. We tried ordering dinner as only 1 of us wanted Omakase. However, waiter told us that all of us had to order the same Omakase. So we ordered the $75 Signature Omakase. All Omakase I ordered, the dinner came with chef specials with out of ordinary quality of fresh fish/seafood. Wokuni version of Omakase came similar to testing menu. 1st course was sashimi which was excellent; however, only 4 version: tuna, salmon, yellow tail, & one more (don't remember). 2nd course was so so, 3 separate kind of appetizer (size of a quarter). 3rd course was the sushi, very fresh but very typical fish again. 4th course was shabu shabu, very so so. used shrimp heads as part of the broth, very fishy. last course is the desert, which was good. Overall, I would go there again for the sushi/sashimi only. Never order Omakase, not worth it.

Happy to find this place in the vicinity of our old standby Restaurant Tokyo which closed several years ago. Can only attest to lunch, which was tasty and well-prepared. The rice was perfect. Really appreciated the 6 oz Asahi for $2.

I visited at lunchtime."It was crowded, but I was surprised that the food was served right away."
Kaisen-don is very easy to serve, so I recommend it when you don't have time.

Their omakase policy is beyond ridiculous. They want my 8 year old son to also do the omakase. Finally after telling the manager, he "made an exception". However, our waiter on several occasions wouldn't stop shutting up about "this is why we require everyone to do the omakase" geez. Enough already. Really bad experience. NEVER going back there again. Plenty of great Japanese restaurants in NYC.

There is very little flexibility on what to order. You cannot choose the type of fish for the sashimi, this is chef-selected.

Went for a friend’s birthday. Had a reservation but arrived before my guest, still seated immediately which I appreciate. This allowed me to start with a happy order. Sake was fine, oysters were oddly mild, came pre-garnished and still required soy sauce but ended up being satisfying bites. Server was helpful in describing the sashimi sets and wisely steered us away from doubling up on sashimi orders. Food was great, standouts were the cod, yellowtail and tuna, both medium and lean.

Great place for their lunch special.
Their food is delicious! Great value on their lunch specials.
Service is quick, so if you only have an hour lunch, you can be in and out promptly. Best part is that if you have time, they won’t rush you to leave as some places do.
Beautiful decor/ambiance. Great service.
Recommend.
