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.

It started off slow I was waiting to be serviced for 10-15 mins but after that food was great .. I did ask for hard noodles with my soup.5 minutes into me eating the noodles the waiter tells me it was going to be an additional charge .Otherwise my meal was fantastic. It was my birthday. I made them aware but I didn’t receive a birthday song or casket.

The salmon dish on the prix fixed lunch was a small piece of salmon and disappointingly unflavorable. I would return but not order this again. And the grilled chicken appetizer skewer was dry and also not well seasoned. I don’t typically post unfavorable reviews but this was a letdown.

The vibe here at the bar is not friendly. It seems very insular. And the mixed cocktails are heavy handed. My cosmo was thick...what's up with that. The food is good, salty as hell, but being fair, that's Asian food in general. The different dishes we had were done very well. I'm not sure what it is, but I'm just not a huge lover of the atmosphere in Toku. Just one woman's opinion.

My experience was as it has usually been. Better than good food, Service was good-in fact, the reason I did not rate it excellent is that it is “too good”; that is intense and sometimes gets in the way but certainly attentive and available. Noise level at lunch was fine and of course, the room is attractive -as are the clientele.

Thing I liked most was our waiter - very nice guy with a good sense of humor and was giving good advices. Second - ambiance it was nice. Food was good, but nothong I'd say WOW about. Interesting and tasteful was some hot apetizer - bbq that you cook yourself.

Great Food! It was my 1st time there so I tried many recommendations from others who have dined there before. Great atmosphere! It was quiet and relaxing which was much needed after a crazy week. Amazing service! We did not have to wait for anything. The employees took very good care of us. Can't wait to go back!
