I've been here a few times now and literally all I think is...meh. The atmosphere is cool, it's a trendy spot...but that is about it. The service never stood out to me, neither did the food.

Went back to Tao 10 years after my last visit. On a business trip we were looking for Asian food and I happened to recall a previous visit to Tao, So many years later it didn't disappoint. Great ambience, super nice food and great service.

First time at this trendy restaurant and we definitely had a great meal. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is warm and the service very efficient. At lunch time they have a fixed price menu at an excellent value for money. Definitely recommended!
