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.

My husband and I went to Toku for our anniversary. We have been in the past, but were disappointed this time around. My husband ordered the noodles with peanut sauce. I ordered the vegetable dumplings— both were vaguely gloopy; something you might expect at a local Chinese restaurant. We ordered sushi (special rolls) for our main (actually over ordered). They were nothing special if you expect fresh fish. Overall was underwhelmed by the food, and felt fleeced. One thing that is undeniable is that the restaurant is beautiful filled with beautiful rich people.

Food was delicious and service was excellent. Orlando our server, gave my husband great recommendations on what steak to order. We ordered lobster tacos, roc shrimp tempura, teriyaki skirt steak, special fried rice & ofcourse shrimp tempura sushi rolls. Every single dish was beyond delicious & savory. Must also order a lychee martini!

We were four for dinner. All appetizers and main dishes were excellent except for a lobster dish with noodles. The dish was delicious except the lobster which was very tough. Everything else was fabulous. It was a bit cold in the restaurant. Next time I’ll bring a sweater. Service was superb.

Overall a great experience. The service and food were excellent. My only gripe is the price of cocktails. They charge $16 for a Mojito. I thought that was a bit pricy for a basic drink.

Went there for my daughter’s birthday. Monday evening, not crowded. Felt rushed throughout dinner. I left the table to load a photo for my daughter. They brought a sparkler candle while I was absent and I missed it. Also, just the sparkler candle. No dessert attached to it. VERY DISAPPOINTING! Can’t have a do-over! I called and complained. Still waiting for management to make it right.

First time here. Took my girlfriend for her birthday. A little pricey, but worth it. We got the rock shrimp tempura, skirt steak, and kung pao . All items were good. Finished with banana wonton. The drinks was good as well. Will definitely make another trip here again.....

It was ok. Very expensive. I ordered the Wagyu steak, not really knowing myself what to expect. I was surprised to find more than half of it pure fat. In all fairness I Googled the beef after and it said heavily marbled with lots of fat. So partially my fault for picking it. Never again. The Kobe beef skewers although a small portion were very good.
There is a definite lack of Gluten Free options and for such a swank and pricey establishment there should be more. PF Changs can do it so can Toku.
All in all a decent experience and I would maybe go back but in no rush to.

Great food! Service was friendly and food was out very fast. Waiters are very attentive. However, felt a little too on top of other diners, sitting too close to one another. I could hear everyone’s conversations more than my own. Other than that, it was a great first time visit.

Food is always excellent but today service was a bit slow and waiter took a long time to bring our drinks and totally forgot to bring our salad. When we asked him about it he said that he was trying to stagger the dishes. Who eats salad after appetizers sushi meat and rice?
Generally always have good service . Maybe this was an off night

By far one of the best Asian restaurants I’ve ever been to. Actually the BEST!!!
Foods amazing, service is surprisingly perfect.. waiters/waiters are constantly on you hand and foot, drinks are on point, and I Enjoyed time with my best friend and went again in a date a couple of days after my first time because I couldn’t get enough. I definitely recommend this place for a girls night out or any other special occasion of course. A bit pricey but you don’t leave hungry and it’s so worth it. You get what you pay for that’s for sure.

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.
