A word from Tao Restaurant and Nightclub
Guests are transported from the City of Sin to the Pacific Rim inside TAO Asian Bistro, a 60,000 square-foot, multi-story “Asian City” housing a restaurant, banquet facilities, lounge and nightclub. Lush velvets and silks, waterfalls and century-old woods and stones accentuate the experience, and the restaurant’s signature 20-foot Buddha watches over every corner of the restaurant while floating peacefully above an infinity pool complete with Japanese koi.

Corporate Executive Chef Ralph Scamardella has developed a menu for the 400-seat restaurant by incorporating culinary components from China, Japan and Thailand. Signature dishes include offerings from sea, sky and land including Chilean Sea Bass Satay with Wok Roasted Asparagus, a preparation of Peking Duck that consistently receives accolades, and Kobe Beef Shabu Shabu along with a full sushi bar.

Diner Reviews
  • "Great food! Everything was great. Music was great, a good chilled buddhabar/deep house was on."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "If you want a pretty good ambience or free entry to the club later in the evening, Tao is a good choice. For Foodies you may be disappointed. The food is good but certainly not reflective of the price. Quantity is fine, but quality is just ok. Sauces are tasty but nothing special (probably out of a standard can or bottle). For romantic interludes, the Tao is pretty nice. The Giant Buddah, rose pedals, lighting and two story openness are special. Service is attentive and personal. In summary, service and ambience rank 5 stars. Food ranks 3 stars particularly given the premium pricing. Been here 3 times so feel I can adequately represent. I'm not a "clubbie" so probably won't seek for future visits. Cheaper romances!"

  • "beautiful restaurant. excellent food. the appetizers were very good, as were the main course."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The atmosphere was great. The service was average. The music was great. The food was terrible. We had two sushi rolls that were good. My wife had the wasabi filet. It was by far the worst steak she or I have ever tried to eat. There was absolutely no flavor at all. I asked my wife and she said "this steak tastes like popcorn" I tried it and she was right on. I had the orange chicken. It was dry and didn't come with rice just a green looking vegetable. Ordered lobster fried rice separately it was terrible. We were really disappointed in the food. We had been there 5 years ago and I remember food being good. The meal was expensive and not worth the money. I hate to say it but Panda Express orange chicken was a lot better. We will not return."

  • "The food is delicious. It's a must go in Las Vegas!"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "I loved the sea bass, however the filets were less than appealing and had no flavor! Sausage fried rice was outstanding. Very over priced for servings, especially appetizers."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Celebrated mom's 70th birthday weekend in Las Vegas & Tao was her choice. Food was fabulous, service and servers were absolutely phenomenal; waiter was attentive to all details. The atmosphere was energetic but laid back and very positive which was big for Vegas - our usual choices for dinner includes more boisterous crowds so it was a great change & we soaked it in. Will definitely go back."

  • "Outstanding food, one of my favorite stops in Vegas. the Chilean Sea Bass is a must have."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "I have been to Tao several times. The most recent time was a disappointment. The menu has changed slightly and I feel the food has gone downhill. The service was sub-standard. We never had our drinks refilled or even asked if we wanted another cocktail. They forgot to bring plates once the food was served so we all sat there for 5 minutes trying to get someone's attention so we could eat. I think there are better options in Las Vegas."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Tao was absolutely AMAZING! The food, the service and the atmosphere were incredible! My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary there and couldn't have picked a better place. By far the BEST meal we've EVER had!"
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "I always make it a point to go to Tao when in Vegas as the food and scene are great. This visit was just ok though. Our server was very nice and attentive at first, but then he got seated a large group and we had to wave him down to get another drink and then for the check. However, my biggest gripe was that the other person in my party ordered Pad Thai and I ordered sushi and my sushi arrived 10 mins after the Pad Thai came. The server kept telling us it was on it's way from another kitchen. They really need to make more of an effort to time the dishes so they come out at the same time. Food was good though."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Loved the decor! Worth visiting. Must have the Chilean sea bass, it was outstanding! Best for larger parties since the food is served family style. It is loud and the service is not great (busy distracted wait staff)."

  • "Delicious, great service - perfect! Really amazing dinner"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Service was very good. Food very bland especially Pad Tai. I would not recommend. Chicken is very good, as well as Sweet and Sour Soup. Too expensive."

  • "What a great place to spending an evening. The atmosphere is electric, the food excellent and the service is all that anyone could ask for. A MUST for the particular Gourmand."

  • "Even though we had a reservation we had to wait for 30 minutes. The atmosphere and food were very good.The music was great. The staff at the front desk were cold with the customers but the staff indoor were very polite and helpful. When we finished our dinner and dessert, we decided to get to the nightclub. The music was really bad so we stayed for a while."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We waited for our table for at least 40 minutes even though we had a reservation."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "I had been to Tao in NYC previously, so I knew what to expect: delicious food, yummy cocktails, loud music and a trendy crowd. Tao did not disapppoint. We had the lobster pad thai and jumbo shrimps with peanut sauce, both very good dishes. I can definitely recommend Tao to anyone. When dinner was over, we got to og to the nightclub upstairs without standing in line or having to pay at the door, which was nice."

  • "Good ambiance but Too loud, distracted service, original and good food."

  • "Sea Bass was amazing! Everything we ordered was delicious our service was flawless."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "The most amazing flavourful food. There is nothing simple about it, every single morsel of food is exploding with sinful, sultry, flavour. This is the place to be adventurous and try anything and everything on the menu, the wait staff is there to guide you through every step."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Even though we had reservations we waited half an hour for our table. The food was ok but not better than Benihana sorry to compare u to it. The host was very impersonal and almost rude and dismissive as if I need them and not vice a versa. The atmosphere was great though but I think this place is overrated and wouldnt return or reccomend to a friend the main reason I dont like how I was treated by the hosts. The waiter was great though."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "A trip to Tao is always a must when we hit vegas. The food was so good...the lobster wontons and the original spicy tuna rolls are to die for. This is nothing new. The service from Thomas, however...exceptional. He kept an eye on us and was very personable. But the one thing I wanted to mention was how he noticed I wasn't enjoying my drink and took it away and took it off our bill...he didn't have to, but it was very much appreciated."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Tao is a staple restaurant my wife and I visit everytime time we go to Las Vegas. It is actually our favorite restaurant in Vegas and the food and service are outstanding. The attention to detail exceeds some of the more higher end restaurants in town. The ambience is fantastic. It is much more than just a nightclub, it is one of the best restaurants in town."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "I've eaten at Tao in NYC and it was great. The Vegas location was an awful experience all around. Rude host, dirty wine glass, an absent waiter, over cooked food, and the giant fortune cookie was stale/unedible. My Pinot noir tasted like dish soap with flat sprite mixed with it. Save your money and eat somewhere else."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "We tried the chef's tasting menu - and everything was so good! We had edamame, pork buns, crab cakes, 2 types of sushi, beef, spicy chicken, fish (that was melt-in-your mouth), and noodles! I was so stuffed after eating as much as I possibly could."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "You have to watch where they put you, where the Buddha is to your right coming in, at the left there are a number of deuces and they usually line up a table of 20 or so right next to them. Inevitably adds to the noise level of an already noisy restaurant. If you ask to move they sit you by the washroom which is actually quieter"
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "A must see in Vegas - excellent service and food quality. I am gluten free and they made changes to specific menu items and they were fantastic."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Our reservation was at 5. We sat down at 5:01. The staff was fun and made the best suggestions! The food was amazing! We ordered a bunch of appetizers and couple of entrees and we all just ate everything! We were sad when it was over. :( we will defiantly be back!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Although we were a party of 8, it took us 45 min to be sited and only after complaining for 2 times!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "great food but don't think your going to talk. VERY LOUD!!!! Pushed us out quickly to allow for more people."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "With a group of nine friends. We ordered the Chefs Specials and shared them family style. Huge portions, and everything was cooked perfectly , the Sea Bass, the Sushi and beef ribs were simply amazing !"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I have been to the Tao restaurant several times now. The food is always spectacular. As an added bonus, they throw in a front of the line pass for the nightclub so you can skip the line, which is often long."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We were a table of 8, all with a variety of tastes but wanted to eat family style. Our waiter offered to do all the ordering for us and it was fantastic -- we certainly had many things I would never have ordered, yet loved! This was my 4th time to Tao and it's excellent every time. Highly recommend this spot!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Beautiful food, great atmosphere, some real gems to order that are not your normal Asian dishes. Highly recommended But its definitely NOT a Japanese restaurant"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We started at the bar with excellent mixologists. Once we were seated the specials were explained by our great waitress. The restaurant was pretty noisy but it was a fun environment. Food arrived and was A-MAZ-ING!!! Thanks for a great night TAO"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The apps were very good. Unfortunately the sushi was flavourless and generic. I was very disappointed as I heard wonderful things about TAO. I also felt like we were being rushed through out our meal. I made sure we had reservations so this would not occur."

  • "Great service, nice food, very good music ! The Malbec was also very tasty"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We came to Tao for a nice dinner for the Bride-To-Be, we had never been to TAO for dinner and thought that it looked like a fun place to eat. As we had a reservation, it took about 20 minutes to seat us. When we were seated, our server took forever to take our drink order. We placed our food and drink order at the same time. Our drinks took over twenty minutes to get to our table and our food took over an hour. After we received our food, we asked for our checks right away (because we knew the service was slow) and it took about another hour to get our checks. As we are not food critics, the sushi was horrible and we paid way too much for what we received. It was a horrible experience and I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone."
