Asian
Toku’s cuisine is predominantly Japanese with influences from China, Korea, and South East Asia. Ingredients and cooking techniques throughout the world create the Modern Asian menu. Owners Gillis and George Poll have dined all over the world, and have come across a variety of dishes that have really impressed them, “the best of the best.” According to Gillis, “We put together our favorites and added our own unique twists to them.” George emphasizes the menu’s ease and variety. “It’s a straightforward, casually written menu which allows you to dine any way that you’d like.” Guests may enjoy traditional meals with an appetizer, entree and dessert, or dine exclusively on sushi. Others can order cocktails and a table full of appetizers and skewers to share. “The menu is set up for sharing,” he confirms. Anything goes when ordering at Toku.

The "music" is irritating - just boom, boom, boom. I asked the waiter to turn it off or lower the volume - he said no.

The restaurant is beautiful! Very happening place! Accommodating to vegetarians. The edamame dumplings were outstanding! Tofu teriyaki was pretty good but I’ve had better. The avocado sushi was awful! It tasted like mush. The noodles had a weird aftertaste. Overall if you are looking for ambiance a great place.

Waited 25 minutes longer for our reservation. Food was pretty good. Sushi was solid, and had some other good dishes, but the noodle and rice dishes failed. Service was great and drinks were spot on.

All the food and drinks were great as usual: you want the Toku tini,, crispy rice with spicy tuna, lettuce cups, Asian cesar salad, river stone bbq, rock shrimp, dumplings, pork buns. It’s all delicious and great for a celebration

The food is excellent and the food comes out very fast, but I was with my elderly mother. The aisles between tables were small to non-existent and as we were trying to leave, we were constantly blocked by waiters and servers. They should have yielded to us and let us out so other people waiting could be seated.
Also, the music does not fit the decor or the price. This is a very expensive restaurant but I could barely hear my friends over the music.
I've been here before on weekdays and it has been much better, so I guess the moral of the story is - don't go on the weekends.

This was our first time at Toku and we were not disappointed. Architecturally, the space is stunning and the interior is quite modern and attractive. Our wait person was personable, professional and efficient. Most of all, though, the food was delicious, attractively presented and very fresh. We look forward to our next visit to Toku.

I might be old fashioned but at Toku you couldn’t have a conversation, the music was outrageously loud. The food was good, service good .

Food was okay, but waiter convinced us to get fried rice with “everything in it”. What he failed to mention was that the fried rice is about $100 with everything in it. Not cool...

The service was outstanding. The food was great and the portions were good. Raman came in a huge bowl, would have been enough for a meal. The sushi was fresh. Good vibe and would definitely recommend.

3/4 of the dishes we got were good, but not much better than many Japanese restaurants I've been to that are a fraction of the price. The fourth dish left a lot to be desired. Service was great and the atmosphere was nice. Overall, I expected more from the food for the price and the hype. I would probably try it again because the menu is huge and there are so many things I want to try!

Great spot for lunch while shopping at the Americana. Not cheap. Also when we sat down, one of the plates at the table was dirty -- but they quickly brought us a clean one and they were super apologetic. Service was fast and efficient with no mistakes. We over-ordered but no problem -- they were more than happy to wrap up our food for us to take home. I will definitely go back there again. Friendly, pleasant staff.

Had a great lunch mid-afternoon sunday. Busy restaurant. Sat in the bar area on low tables - fun vibe and we were able to see the TVS for the Mets game. Always enjoyable food. Waiter was great and never had an empty water glass.

The place needs a serious cleaning. Floors were sticky, couches stained, table sticky.
Food was mediocre we ordered the pecking duck salad and it was horrible. The wonton crackers were soggy the duck smelled like it was old and it was extremely fatty. The lobster tacos had absolutely no flavor. The teriyaki sliders were dry and lacking any flavor. The Kobe river stone bbq clearly not Kobe but it was better than everything else.
