It was an amazing meal. There were times when the waiter was hard to track down but the place was slammed to it it understood. The entire meal was fantastic except the avacado tempura which was a mushy mess.

It was a birthday and the waiter took a long time coming over and after receiving water we waited quite a while to order a drink and then get it.
I had to call the waiter over to order food.
He was so busy we felt neglected
It was Thursday night so was not a weekend
Not a fabulous experience for a birthday !

Their prix fixe (3 courses) lunch special offers lots of choices and the food really stands up to what everyone raves about. The service was quick and the wait staff was very friendly. I'll definitely be going back for any other big occasion I am celebrating.

Our service was friendly and efficient. We never felt rushed. The food was, as always, extraordinary. We were seated upstairs which is a bit quieter than in the main room. I highly recommend Tao for lunch.

It was going ok, food was nice enough but not brilliant, before the waiter seemed to take offence to our $15 tip asking had the service not been good enough and started slamming things on the table, going in a huff and making our experience very awkward. The tip might’ve been greater had the bill not been placed on our table without me asking at 10pm and being asked twice if we wanted to ‘pack up’ the $65 bottle of wine and take it with us (before 10pm). I would’ve taken the $15 tip back if I could!!

The waitress we had was very cold and seemed annoyed that we were asking for things. I asked for some extra pineapple juice as my drink was very strong and she plopped it on my table without saying a word. She also did not check on us once during dinner, other waiters were very polite and helpful. It was my mother’s last night in the city and I wanted to treat her to a nice dinner, it’s a shame that our waitress had such a bad attitude. I will not be returning, the food is decent and great ambiance, but I’d rather go somewhere less upscale with great service than come back here.

Not at all impressed, the food had no flavor. The place is so dark you could barely read your menu. My waitress never came to check on us, I had to ask a random employee for the dessert menu. I had better food at my local Chinese restaurant.

Booked weeks in advance a table of 4. Given a table at a service station fir wAiters and outside the entrance to the kitchen. Advised by the waiter no other table available being a Saturday. It was very busy. No guests should have been asked to take that table. Manager apologized and said had he known he would have moved us! Food and waiter service excellent

We went to TAO Uptown at the weekend for Mother's day lunch. I don't want to recommend this restaurant.
Horrible service - need to educate the servers. very rude
Seriously dirty - uncleaned table, men's restroom was really dirty.
Food quality was okay, but some foods were salty. Kung Pao chicken was terrible.
This restaurant is overrated because of the name value.
