O Tokuda is very unfortunately positioned. A lovely buffet restaurant with excellent table service. As mentioned, its only downfall is where the restaurant is located - down a little back alley that often smells of urine! Hopefully this shouldn't deter you as this is a unique restaurant to the foodie scene of chesterfield

Drinks are a little more than usual but it's expected for an all you can eat. Staff are friendly and attentive. Some lovely dishes, and the staff will give you recommendations if you're unsure.

As others have said, don't let the entrance put you off. Once you get inside you'll forget the alleyway outside. As soon as you open the door there's a genuine attempt to impress with a bridge over a small indoor koi pond. When we arrived we were immediately greeted and shown our table. Drinks were ordered and prompty arrived, and... More

Myself and a friend visited here today to try it after fantastic reviews by so many people. I was embarrassed by the end of the visit. We stayed for 40 minutes. The food was cold and tasteless and when we quietly mentioned this the waiter, he (a part timer) wasn't bothered and gave some real attitude. Grace our server was... More

We went recently as a couple and were disheartened by the area surrounding this little gem in the smelly passageway. Honestly we did think twice. When we stepped inside staff were all very welcoming and seated us quickly (I believe due to the saturday rush). We were left a couple of minutes to read both the drinks and buffet menu... More

There were 8 of us eating and we had pre booked a table. Staff were friendly and the service was fast - a little too fast. There was barely any time to have a breather before staff were asking what we wanted next. It was as though we were on a conveyor belt - in, eat and out. The atmosphere... More

I have been to o tukuda many times before and will continue to in the future, the food is very good and the price is very competitive. However the place is looking very tired, tatty and very cramped. All in all this is an excelent venue ad very good value.

We come here about once a month as we don't live too far away... The waiting staff are all oriental and have a disconcertingly rapid work ethic. You do need to consult the menu well before a waiter arrives, as they can all write your order down faster than you can think! The all-you-can-eat buffet is always excellent and in... More
