Try mineral spirits. Generally won't affect any finish but does a good job of removing most deep grime. Dampen a clean cloth with it and rub lightly. As always, test in inconspicuous spot first.

I agree, while I don't know much about teak, mineral spirits will cut/remove some of the oil which is wear the grime is. You may need to re oil it once you get it clean.
