A word from Toku Modern Asian
Toku’s cuisine is predominantly Japanese with influences from China, South Korea, Thailand and South East Asia. Ingredients and cooking techniques throughout the world create the Modern Asian menu. Owners Gillis and George have dined national and international 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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "WE went for a special occasion. This restaurant would not survive a day in Flushing. Food is over priced. both the chicken and beef were bland and uninspired."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "This restaurant is always great! Fun, upbeat atmosphere, excellent cuisine, great service, and always busy, this is a great place for a family gathering or celebration."

  • "Love the food at Toku, but sometimes the service can be a bit slow. Appetizers came right out, but the wait for the entree was pushing 30 minutes. Once arrived, the whole crispy fish as great - but the cold sesame noodles were a bit gummy"

  • "Although it won't stop me from returning, it gets noisy at Toku. If you sit in the booth, it might be better. Food and ambience is wonderful. No complaints about the staff."

  • "In one word-amazing! Still dreaming about the crispy rice with spicy tuna and the wonton chips with spicy tuna. Will definitely be back soon!"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "I heard so many wonderful things about toku but I do not have anything wonderful to say about my experience other than the service was great. The waiter was also there and quickly took any orders but my table and I felt as though we were being rushed out even though it was a quiet Sunday evening. In all we ate appetizers, dinner and dessert in under 40 minutes. The food was average nothing I would go back for."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "The menu has a wide variety where you are able to share many plates. Service is attentive although if it's busy, don't lose sight of your server."

  • "Interesting Asian menu - wonderful drinks, especially the Lichee Martini. Great for celebrating a birthday. We love this restaurant, except for the noise level. Best to go at an off hour."

  • "One of the better Asian restaurants on LI. Upscale dinning room matches the services. Nice spot for groups."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "I love Toku, but this time I felt like I was eating in a fast food restaurant. We were in and out in under an hour and felt super rushed. The place was exceptionally noisy and the music louder than usual. The food is good and hardly dissapoints, but we put our apps order in and it was out in 30 seconds and could hardly enjoy our cocktails. I'm gonna stick to going for lunch there as it's a little more relaxed atmosphere."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "to be honest, the only reason i went to this restaurant is because i had a gift certificate. it is located in the Americana Manhasset, and i feel like it is trying to be like a trendy restaurant in NYC (and is priced that way). it happened to be a beautiful summer day, so my boyfriend & i sat outside for lunch, which was nice. if i remember correctly, i got the sushi and sashimi bar special. i think we also ordered the octopus carpaccio and rock shrimp tempura. the food overall was mediocre, good at best. and considering how expensive it was, i wouldn't go back."

  • "Food is very good. I have been to the restaurant about ten times over the past five years and have never had a good service experience."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "Food always good.. service always top notch. Just wish as a smaller party, 2 people, there was more "my" space... only downside is the tables are really tight. Kudos to the chef!"
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "An interesting menu and attentive service made for an enjoyable dining experience. We especially liked their "take" on sesame soy chicken."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "Unfortunately, our last experience was a bit off. Food is always good, my only issue is that some dishes just lack the right seasoning. A few of our entrees could have used some salt, and there is none to be found, so you cannot add it yourself. Staff is hit or miss. Our server was distracted and somewhat disappointed that we only ordered one app to start and not two. He asked a few times..."are you sure you want just one appetizer?" Ordered two expensive entrees but that didn't seem to make him happy. Then no desert...he wasn't happy about that either!"
    Dined on 1/1/2014
  • "Toku is where we choose to celebrate! The staff is always welcoming and never misses a beat. We always have to stop eating before we've tried all of the dishes we'd like to have and the sleection at the bar is extensive and poured with a full hand. Don't miss it!"

    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "Great! We each had dishes that we had never had before. I had the muscles. My friend had the calamari salad. In each case, we were delighted with our meals. The host was particularly accommodating seating us two in a large booth as requested when I made my reservation on Open Table. Our server was gracious, helpful and checked back a few times to be sure we were happy.. I've been here dozens of times, hopefully will be back dozens more. Thanks for a lovely dining experience."
    Dined on 11/20/2013
  • "Toku is a real gem - highest quality ingredients available (why wouldn't they be - It's a Poll brothers restaurant), make the food memorable. Lots of new additions to the menu, can't wait to try them all. Quality, quality, quality!"
    Dined on 11/11/2013
  • "I have been to Toku on many occasions. The atmosphere is great, the place beautiful, and the food delicious. The problem with this neighborhood restaurant is the level of pretentiousness. The restaurant will not seat you in booth unless requested with the reservation. The booths are saved for the best customers. They would not seat us in the booth even thought they had plenty empty ones. Our waiter lacked in English and experience. We asked for a wifi passcode which they don't provide for customers. A fancy restaurant who caters to the wheeler and dealers of the Cold Coast should invest in a router and offer customers free wifi."
    Dined on 11/10/2013
  • "Greeted warmly. Seated immediately. Tables are way too close to one another. Busy bar, upbeat scene. My friend had fabulous lamb ribs. Love the drinks. Tuna tartar was the best ever. Not rushed even though they were busy. . Water refilled even after we paid our bill, which I thought was very fairly priced. Upon leaving the host joked with us about the restaurant being so busy. It was a lovely end to a fun evening of friends, good food, drinks and fun. Will be back yet again for sure."
    Dined on 11/7/2013
  • "Always enjoy Toku... the atmosphere is fun and the food is incredibly high quality, well-prepared and delicious. The only thing that detracted slightly from our dining experience this week was that we had to wait quite a long time for any of the waitstaff to "pay attention" to us after we were seated... but once the waiter and other staff came by, they took great care of us and we enjoyed every moment of our dinner."
    Dined on 10/27/2013
