The concept is great. Also, the decor and the tables were terrific. Unfortunately the food was very so so. The food at the authentic dim sum places are far better and tastier even though they are serving hundreds of diners. I expected the food to better executed. Frankly nothing looked that good or tasted that good. Service was nice and friendly but slow and unskilled. Would not return.

We had a wonderful evening - the food was amazing, from the appetizers (eggplant stuffed with shrimp- creamy and flavorful) to the main dishes ( Peking duck with both bao buns and pancakes) and General Tso’s addictive crunchy and pungent flavors. I LOVE the poached pears so ending with my favorite dessert is always the best. Their cocktails and teas add to the experience as well.
Our waiter watched us carefully and timed the courses to our eating and we never felt like we were hurried to had to wait to long. I also love the decor and we were seated in an upholstered bench which is so comfortable.
Great Valentines evening.

Went for lunch. This hidden gem has some of the best Chinese food I’ve had in Nashville. Hot chicken potstickers were fantastic, as were the steamed pork baos. The late night noodles and General Tso’s chicken were also very good. Try the ginger citrus tea. A little on the pricey side but food quality was superb. Highly recommend and will definitely go back. Don’t let all the construction and road closures nearby deter you. Worth the effort.

We came back to Tansuo because our first visit late last year was so good. Unfortunately, the second time was a huge disappointment. The restaurant is lovely - well fitted out and creates the right ambiance. The attendant who welcomed us was also good - efficient and just the right level of chatty. The rest of the service was slow (our visit was on a quiet Sunday night so they weren't busy) and the food was over-cooked and uninteresting. We had the pork belly rice and the pork belly was burnt and dry. We also had the green beans which were basically green beans thrown in a bowl with some pork on top, instead of the way they are meant to be cooked - and were cooked the last time we were there. The chicken dish we had was very bland, but that could have just been a poor menu choice on our part. They did remove the cost of the pork belly from our bill, which showed they knew how to handle complaints well, so I give them points for that. Unfortunately it's not enough to bring us back.

We have been going to Tansuo since we discovered it early last year. We absolutely love the food so we are frequent visitors. The staff always remembers us and makes us feel welcome. Tonight, the manager greeted us, thanked us for our patronage and rewarded us with a more than generous gift card. We were so delighted, but would frequent Tansuo under any circumstances. I can’t say enough good things about this unique and charming restaurant.

The Food was great, but I felt the value for the brunch was off. Portion sizes were surprisingly small, and I left the place still hungry after already paying for $25 worth of food.

Might give this place another go for Dinner, but I cannot afford to pay for such small portions for brunch.

So disappointing. Server was disengaged and inattentive. Food quality used to be excellent. Dan Dan noodles were close to inedible. Won’t be back, as much as I’d like to be. Gave it a second chance and still faltered.

Went to Tansuo for a birthday celebration for my mother and myself. Our reservation was at 11:30. At 11:15, we modified it to 11:45 bc we weren’t going to make it on time. The restaurant was very empty, so even without a reservation, I don’t think we would have had a problem getting a table. We got a call at 11:40 checking to see if we were coming to our 11:30 res -that had been modified and by 11:44, we were in the door on time. Later I noticed that I had been emailed as a no show. Slightly annoying bc it counted against my open table account when we were there, and on time. In short, food was great, a little too fast to ding people’s records.

Excellent choice if you enjoy upscale Asian food. Small,but diverse menu selection featuring a variety of delicious appetizers, tasty Egg Drop Soup, and the best stuffed Egg Plant with Shrimp.
Don't go looking for Chow Mein or Spare Ribs. Tansuo is far beyond traditional Chinese cuisine.

Waaaay too loud for an enjoyable dinner. The disco balls with flashing lights were over the top (would have been great for the after party dancing). May be a great restaurant for millennials but not for this baby boomer.

Shared plates reasonable and reasonably priced. Dim Sum subpar on all levels. Lamb was tasty, bao was boring, flavors were heavily sweetened, brussel sprouts taste like McDonald bbq sauce. Ordered a few things that never even made it out...
