About Toku Modern 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.

·Dined 4 days ago

my wife and i always go out for lunch on valentine's day instead of dinner. toku was her favorite restaurant, but she has developed several food allergies, gluten/dairy/soy and was hesitant to dine there given the type of food they serve. i called before making reservations and was assured they could serve her safely.

we sat down and our server brought over our menu and she explained her situation to him. he went over what he thought was safe, but said he would double check with the chef. upon his return he told her anything cooked in the kitchen was cooked in soybean oil. he felt so badly too. he offered a salad or plain sushi, but she didn't want to be there to eat this, smelling everything she wish she could be eating. he got some female from the front who started contradicting information he received from the chef. and then she started making excuses. i guess she doesn't get people can die if you give them food they cannot eat.

i wish they would have just been honest. they ruined our whole valentine's day. my wife was so upset and i don't blame her. there were other places i could have attempted to take her that wouldn't have caused her this pain and embarrassment. all the people who answer the phone there care about is making a dollar, not the people who can suffer at their hands.

Once again a major disappointment. Our party of 4 was seated at 2 different tables after being alerted. They wanted to start our order before our full party arrived. I was asked if I wanted another glass of wine when I still had a 1/3 of a glass. Plates are removed when you have a fork in hand. Overbearing service regardless of what you say. We had a 3:45 reservation and they pulled the luncheon menus from our hands and said we had to order from the dinner menu. Food is merely okay and not worth the price. This use to be a favorite stop but after 2 very unpleasant experiences we will not return.

We took my parents, who rarely eat anything but Chinese food, here for Christmas Eve dinner, and they loved it. We Irish mother in law, who also loves Chinese food, also joined us and she raved about the food and service. We started with the edamame, rock shrimp tempura, shrimp dumplings, lamb spare ribs, gyoza, chicken ramen, kobe beef shishito peppers (though there was no beef) and teriyaki sliders. In hindsight, we should have also ordered the Riverstone BBQ as the table next to us ordered it and it looked delicious. However, for 6 people, this was plenty for us to share. My father ordered the roasted lobster, and he could barely finish his entree. My mother thoroughly enjoyed her skirt steak, and my son and I each got the filet of beef (I loved the mushroom ragout). My wife ordered the Ja Jaing Mein and lucky for me, she couldn't finish it and it turned out to be an awesome reheated breakfast the next day. My daughter loved the Geisha roll, and my mother in law couldn't get enough of the shrimp pilaf. The food is very good, but it is very, very pricey for Asian food. I've catered Christmas eve dinner for 20 people for what we paid for 6 here. But, it's worth the occasional splurge for food this good.

This was my first time at the restaurant and I thought that the location was beautiful. I really enjoyed that there were so many choices. We had the lobster tacos and King crab roll for an appetizer and they were both delicious. For dinner we shared the fried rice, Kung pao chicken, and udon noodles. Everything was delicious as well as my lychee martini. I will definitely go back there again
