Teak Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We had a great meal, we always do. We arrived a few minutes early but we're seated immediately anyway. Our server was Raul, he was very friendly and had great suggestions.
Shishito peppers were great with the togarashi spice, lotus buns had an outstanding texture. The black Jamba sushi roll was one of the best I've had, beautiful presentation as well as being delicious. We split the short rib which was also perfect. Dessert was the lava cake, which was good, and the Kani rolls (Kati? Magi? Sweet little filo pastries with toasted caramel inside and a scoop of nutella ice cream). Drinks were also great.
We'll definitely be back and asking for Raul.
Happy Hour drinks are very reasonable and with the half price appetizers it gives you a chance to taste the assortment of the delicious choices. The upstairs bar, lounge and outdoor patio is a great place to hang out, especially when the weather starts to change towards spring/summer.
We had a great time and the food was amazing. I have celiac disease so the gluten free menu was awesome. The only complaint was we felt very rushed. Our server was sweet and friendly but I guess the table needed to be turned over. The bussers were literally hovering g over us. We were meeting friends halfway between our homes. We had no idea people were celebrating Valentines Day so for it it was a night out. We won’t make that mistake again. We will be back...maybe on a weeknight!
Service was slow. Our appetizers took almost 45 minutes to come to the table and the special appetizer arrived about 10 minutes later. We all had sushi specials for dinner and that took about 20 minutes to come out after we asked for it since we had show tickets at the Basie theatre. We had to ask for check twice before we finally received it. We were there for 90 minutes. If we didn't have tickets we wouldn't have minded the time frame but don't go there if you're pressed for time.
Had dinner at Teak on Sat. night. It was not as good as it used to be. The Pad Thai was different, and I did not like it very much. It seems a though they added some kind of spice that disagreed with me. My husband ordered the short ribs, and although I thought it was very tasty, he thought it was over cooked. Will not rush back there, too much competition. Also, it is quite expensive. Not worth the money.
Not very creative Asian food. Spicy rock shrimp too breaded. Thai chicken lettuce cups utterly without flavor--no ginger, no garlic, no scallion (and with some very un-Thai mayonnaise-like sauce). Pot-stickers also flavorless and not browned enough. Pad Thai way too sweet. It's convenient for the movie theater, and that's why we go, not for the food. It was quiet this night, because we were early, but it can be very noisy at times. The wait staff has not been trained to leave plates on the table until all the diners in the group are finished--very rude to the people still eating to have all the other dishes cleared.
I had the Teak Pad Thai. Absolutely delicious!!!!!!! Great food!!!
I had asked for a red sangria with light ice. Waiter comes back, puts it on the table, and said Sorry, I forgot to tell them light ice, ok?? (he was assuming I'd say no problem). I said no, I really don't like too much ice, it hurts my throat. Can I please get the drink with no ice then? He says sure, comes back with a glass with 1/2 -1/3 full sangria. I said "excuse me, can you fill the glass with the drink, please? " He said, "I'll check." Comes back, says sorry, that's all you can get, I took out the ice. OH MY GOODNESS, REALLY??? I've been a waitress before...this guy does not understand good customer service. (Plus, I'm keenly aware that the profit margins are quite good. I've never in my life paid $26 for a shrimp pad thai. The HIGHEST I EVER PAID for that dish.) I have many family members in the restaurant business as well. You DO NOT come back with a glass only partially full, especially when customer is paying for pricey meals/drinks. So, I just said..."Forget, never mind, don't want the drink." (And the manager agreed with the waiter by the way. "Sorry that's the portion. It's all you get." )
AFTER we left the Teak restaurant, we all went together down the street to The DUBLIN HOUSE for nice cocktails/drinks !!!
The sushi was good, the steamed buns were excellent, but when the bus-girl took the appetizer plate and put the fork back on the table... I commented on it to the regular waitress ("are you running low on forks?") and she didn't understand my complaint.
The service and food were much more than I expected, not to mention the specialty cocktails!!!. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful. It was also very nice not to be rushed through our meal. The calamari appetizer was delicious and the short ribs with vegetable lo mein was cooked to perfection. The portions were ideal for a very satisfying and enjoyable meal. Great place to go if you are seeing a show at Count Basie. We will definitely be back!
delicious Gluten Free choices - including a nutella CHIPWHICH - yes, homemade GF chocolate chip cookies, which are delicious! Sushi and Pad Thai were great. My wife loved the French Onion 'soup' sticks and the lettuce wraps. Great place. Accommodating wait staff.
The service started off a bit slow, as waiter didn't get to our table quick enough. I was forced to go to bar to get drinks. Waiter did carry drinks from bar and was very attentive thereafter. Food is always very good. The pear martini was delicious. GREAT sushi. Not our first visit and will certainly not be our last. Convenient to Count Basie Theater.
I was disappointed. The comprehensive wine list on their website that I reviewed prior to making reservation was not what we received at the table which was much more limited and uninteresting. The noise level in the front dining room was insanely loud. I couldn't hear my husband across the table for 2 & we were there early before a concert at Count Basie. Food was okay, service was well-timed and friendly, the flan dessert was amazing. The proximity to Count Basie is great.
I made the reservations just by proximity and menu options for dinner with a friend before a concert at Count Basie. We were surprisingly very pleased with the location and the wrap around picture window view of the activity on the street! What a great place to have great food and drinks especially on a rainy or snowy day where you're inside nice and cozy and still have a great view of the outdoors. The food was very good, the drinks were great, the waiter we had was attentive and wonderful at making recommendations when we asked for them. Overall a wonderful experience and I would definitely return and recommend.
Our meal was good, but not great which is surprising since we always have a great meal at their sister restaurant The Bistro. Perhaps the staff was just a little off for a Sunday evening, but we all noticed that the service went South as the meal went on...disappointing waiting for milk for coffee and the waiter brings the check and not the milk!!
We will give it another shot if we return to an event at The Basie, but just one more try!
This was my 2nd time coming to Teak and overall it was such a pleasure to be back there! I chose to take out my mother and grandmother for their birthdays (before The Price is Right Live) to Teak because I absolutely loved the experience I had there for my birthday a few years back! The three of us were greeted by a very sweet hostess who let us pick where we wanted to sit (my grandmother has Bell's Palsy and has a hard time getting around). Our server was very nice as well and served us delicious food and drinks. The only negative things I have to say about my experience were that our server was away from the table for long periods of time multiple times throughout our meal, the food took a long time despite the fact that we were the first reservation to arrive in the dining room, and my sushi had sesame seeds on it after I told the server I am highly allergic to sesame. However, the kindness of the staff, the amazing food, the fantastic drinks, the live music, and the overall atmosphere completely made up for it. I look forward to the next time I come to Teak!
Teak is in a great location in the heart of Redbank. It's a perfect restaurant to catch dinner before a show at the Count Basie Theatre down the street. Let them know what time your show starts when you make your reservations and when you get to the restaurant so they will be sure to get you out in time. They are very accommodating to special dietary needs. Our favorites are the pad Thai and the pineapple fried rice.
