Crispy Orange Chicken

Food was nasty. TAO is a strong brand and consistency should be on top of their goals. I’ve been to TAO LA and TAO Vegas, food was delicious. TAO Uptown food was tasteless, without any effort in making it a good dish.
Dumplings were cold, chicken satay tasted like stir foam, orange chicken tasted like walmart orange sauce, salt n pepper lobster served with shell in the middle of a mess where I couldnt identify what was lobter what was shell in a dark environment which made me chew shells more than once and shrimp fried rice was not warm enough and super dry which proved the dish was already made at begging of kitchen shift and served throughout the night.
I am really sad for the food they served me at this location.
We left all the dishes with tons of food behind and didnt want a to go box. Server should ve realized something was wrong and at least question us about the food.
So this place lacks in service and for sure lacks in chef skills, what a shame for the brand.
El servicio fue malo, muy lento y la comida nada espectacular. Las mesas muy juntas y los meseros no usaban cubre bocas. Hay mejores lugares de comida asiática sin duda en Nueva York.
Always consistently good. Very loud though, with the music.
The prix fixe lunch is a terrific bargain. Cocktails are pricey but good.
Not worth the price.
Might as well go to a regular local Chinese restaurant and get same quality food for cheaper and will taste better for sure.
The food, service and atmosphere were all wonderful! Such a fun place.
Maravilloso!!! Comida excelente y servicio excepcional
The food was outstanding… Incredible experience and all we were very satisfied….
Perfect time as usual!
Waited for 30 min to get a table with a reservation, waitress was nice and kind but took about 20 min to pick up our check because she was at a table flirting with 2 men trying to enjoy their meal. Meal was decent but way too overpriced for what they provide.
Good food, gorgeous atmosphere. Had to wait for nearly 45 minutes despite having a reservation.
Everything was great! The food was delicious! The service was excellent except for the restaurant hosts weren’t very kind or accommodating; instead they were very dry, as if they absolutely and utterly hated every second of their job.
This was my husband and I’d first time at Tao. We ordered drinks while we waited for our table which were great. He had the Tao tini, and I had the lotus blossom. The food was decent, but I would not dine here if you have several food allergies (like myself). We had the steamed chicken dumplings which were tasty. As my main, I really wanted the orange chicken but couldn’t have it because it was prepared in an oyster sauce I believe. So I settled for the short ribs…which is only one rib sliced thin into about 8 pieces. If it wasn’t for the brown rice and my husband’s ribs, I would’ve still been hungry. Despite all of this, everything tasted good and the DJ was on point! Don’t think I’ll visit again, but I’m glad we experienced it.
We waited 30 minutes after the time of our reservation to be seated that is unacceptable. Just for that reason I wouldn't go back here. Food & drinks were great.
Even with a comfirmed reservation, we had to wait 45 minutes to be seated
The food was amazing. The music was good but too loud for a conversation.
Food was great. Venue is spectacular!
Service was fine.
The service was impeccable and food was all absolutely amazing. Our waiter was super friendly and made the night extra fun for my family! Great experience.
It was good, waitress was not friendly, maybe she was having a bad day
The waiting is ridiculous, except to wait 1 hour, food is not so great
Even with a reservation it took an hour to be seated. Staff was rude and incompetent. Would never recommend eating here
Horrible experience, never coming here agains. Made us wait over 45 min, rude attitude, poor service. Then to top it off they charged our credit card twice and no one answers when we call
The place is amazing, the food was great, our waitress was attentive. However, it was the most frustrating experience we’ve ever had at a restaurant. We made a reservation for 8:30pm and didn’t get seated until 9:30pm. The hosts were courteous, but after checking the status of our reservation 7 times (and notifying them that we had limited time because our kids were waiting for us at the hotel), we kept getting told that they couldn’t really tell us an estimated time. We were charged $20 to book the reservation, and after 30 minutes of waiting we asked to cancel and get a reimbursement. We were told that they couldn’t do that. It’s amazing how unprofessional this approach is. We would’ve preferred to be told that our wait was between 1-1.5 hours so that they could have set the right expectations and we could’ve avoided the extreme frustration.
Reservations were @8:15p wasn’t seated until 9:34p. We had our 7 year old son with us. Every person there was waiting over an hour with a reservation. Horrible experience. Service was also poor. Waitress seemed rushed and not personable.
Amazing experience celebrating my daughters sixteenth birthday! Absolutely delicious!! Lots of fun!
Food was delicious, however tables were crowded very close together and the restaurant was quite noisy.
Tao was just as good as I always remembered and they still have one of the best lunch specials in NYC!
We were late for our reservation and the kitchen almost closed but the manager was super nice and let us sit . The food and service was excellent and the ambiance is super cool too.
Everything was amazing! Beautiful experience! I would definitely come again for another special occasion
All of the food at Tao was absolutely delicious. The ambience was perfect for celebrating a birthday. Sadly, our waitress had a very nasty attitude the entire time and treated us as if we were bothering her.
Gorgeous food and great atmosphere! Will definitely return.
Service at the bar and at the entrance was just terrible. Really poor. Service at the table was ok but still slow. Food was good but also here we habe had better experience with Tao in the past.
It was also super noisy, too loud music, to busy and hectic for a nice dinner. So sad, Tao used to be one of our favorite places in the past but this time wasn’t great at all.
Todo muy bien
Tao is always a great experience with amazing food. Service is good but the servers are def important to Tao. They keep and maintain flow.
They need access to plug in phones for those with mobile devices.
Very nice place. Very good food. Service was amazing and the restaurant is so beautiful. Music was very good! 100% recommended!
Our reservation was for 9:00pm. Our entire party was there by 9:15pm. We got seated at 11:00pm, which is unacceptable to wait this long. Every time I came over to the host station to ask how long until we get seated she said we are busy and trying. I understand waiting 30 minutes, but anything past that is unacceptable. This tells me that it’s not being managed properly to accommodate everyone that made reservation.
Went for my birthday! Everything was amazing!! My friends and I loved our meals and drinks fantastic!! Had a great experience
Great service wonderful food and cool vibe. Highly recommend
