    Some holes in the wall hide great food. Unfortunately Tao is not one of them The prawn main had good shrimp nut little else byway of flavor. Veggies in huge chunks tasteless. Dumplings were weak. Scallion pancake acceptable. Not a great culinary experience

    We had a wonderful overall experience. The food was delicious, the service was fast and friendly, and everything was piping hot when it arrived on the table. Special mention goes to the Australian Wagyu Wasabi. The beef was extremely tender, the portion was substantial, and the wasabi sauce gave it wonderful flavor. We highly recommend Tao!

    Attentive (but not intrusive) service, and a diverse, quality menu made this a memorable lunch. The steamed barramundi with ginger and shallots was a highlight.
