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.

Very nice place, great atmosphere, great service, it's located in the Americana Mall, upbeat....
But I have to say, I was not thrilled with the food. Yes this place is definitly over-rated. Food is nothing exciting at all. I was in a party of three and none of us were thrilled with the food, it was just okay.
It was a good experience though, but I've had better Modern Asian food elsewhere. BTW, this place is moderately priced.

Reunion with a family member after Covid and able to travel. Toku was a great spot that allowed us to meet, eat and shop. Food was food and portions were a good size. Will definitely stop in again for another meal

First time dining. My wife requested a Japanese restaurant.
This was a home run!
The vibe was eclectic. It was 5 PM and the place was hopping.
Still indoor seating was well spaced. Decor was vibrant.
Food was OUTSTANDING!
Pork rolls and lobster risotto appetizers were beyond expectations.
Pacific sushi roll must have been made 5 minutes before it was served it was so fresh.
My wife enjoyed her sea bass and the duck outdid every French restaurant I have been to.
(Sorry to my French friends, but you still own the wine.)
Desert was equally masterful.
Don't miss the place in the Americana Mall!

Everything here was awesome, but just expected the sushi rolls to be more presentable. i got about 3 rolls for me and my husband and they all fell apart as we picked them up.. other than that everything else was amazing.

My husband took me here for my birthday dinner. Due to covid there are glass petitions between tables. They are so beautiful and made our dinner feel intimate. Our waiter was awesome
And very charismatic and patient. Food was great and quickly served. Highly recommend this spot for any occasion

Last time I had a very bad experience. I specifically requested OUTSIDE due to Covid. When I got there they informed me “outside seating was closed”. They never called to tell me and were very rude and unapologetic. I gave it another try and spoke to a lovely gentleman this time. Outside was open and we had a nice lunch. French fries were awesome! Shrimp with endive salad was extremely average. Calamari salad was very good as usual.
Unfortunately this place has some employees with bad attitudes.

Walked into an empty Toku at 7:20pm on a cold, rainy Sunday night in April and was told I could be seated outside immediately otw it was a 20 minute wait by the hostess. I guess the pandemic is over and the attitude is back. I will not return

Fabulous ... Other than having to wait for our table. But I have to say that Frederick was amazing at maneuvering his staff and getting ppl seated.
We had a wonderful lunch ...perfect cocktails came from the bar.and $101.00 + tip (EACH) later we have zero regrets and with all the attention to details we will dine again and again

We were a table of five. The edamame was bland, the chicken lettuce wrap was underwhelming. Their were two different rolls ordered and it was inedible. The Peking duck salad was a mix of flavors that did not vibe we left the whole plate. We vaguely received refills of water! From service to food unacceptable, would not return and we all agreed the food was so much better at Kashi.

Food was okay, not what I expected from reviews, then again how can you mess up raw fish? Service was excellent considering we are in the midst of a pandemic.
I would return, I want to try the dinner menu.

Toku is pricey, no question about that. But it's always good food and good service. My cosmo wasn't great, Cippolini's gets the cosmo prize, but we both agreed that our crispy rice and tuna as well as out asian chicken salads were very good. Oddly, the host couldn't find my open table reservation. I hope I get my 100 points ...
