Continuing on my quest for new alternative lunch spots in the TST area to amuse myself with, here's another to add to the list. Thanks J for playing along, hope you found it worthwhile!
The concept at Sushi Toku is not unlike my usual hangout Sushi Hiro, although the Toku staff are a lot more professional and friendly, leaving us alone at lunch hour to jabber away and not reading the menus placed before us for a while. When we finally got down to business, both of us eyed the set of Minced Toro belly on rice with a side of udon.

Aside from the main event, there are also sides of a salad and cold tofu with the set. Salad was fresh with a tangy Wafu dressing. Tofu was smooth and given taste with a good soy and spring onions. The udon was not as good after my experience at Mochi Cafe but still competent and provides a bit of warmth after a refreshingly chilled lunch.
While Sushi Hiro offers fruit and choice of coffee/tea, Toku makes you choose. I'm not fussed since i usually pass on the orange or watermelon wedges anyway. It's not like lunch sets provide the premium fruits like Momo peaches or Musk melons. So Sumiyaki coffee is a much better choice. Coffee here is decent, and pressed through a machine, in contrast to the filter coffee at Sushi Hiro.
Overall, a decent alternative in the area. Could be worthwhile going for dinner if it passes muster again a second time. If you go, don't be tricked by the arrows pointing you up the stairs unless you fancy a workout. The lifts next door do as well to take you up there without breaking sweat.
