We absolutely loved our meal. I miss the asparagus that used to come with the Chilean Sea Bass Satay and was sad that there were no chocolate spring rolls on the dessert menu, but our waitress made a great suggestion and we had the molten chocolate cake instead. Presentation was off the charts!

The lunch price fix meal is an excellent bargain. Although some items are spicey, peppery u can ask to hold off the hot spices. Very good sized portions. Skewered shrimp and vege egg rolls very good. Hanger steak and Branzino dishes also good. Have been at Tao before for lunch and will go again.
