Of course this place is very fancy and very expensive but the food is amazing with a capital A. The lobster wantons were especially good as was the rice pudding with ginger icecream desert. I'm pretty sure everything on the menu is great. The waiter tried to upsell us on everything so we ended up paying for a bottle of Voss water but oh well. I knew it going in but this place is Dark and Loud! So if you're looking for a quiet meal this place is not for you.Was this review helpful?

TAO is trendy Walking in from the venetian there are bathtubs with candles and rose petals in them.. then there is a small seating area (lounge) where you can wait for your table. The big buddha in the middle of the dining room is a great edition. The asian decor is also nice.. i like the bamboo plants in the restaurant. The music should be more lounge inspired.. it was on and off with loud britney spears and back to enya..it wasnt consistent for starters we got spring rolls .. which were so fresh they were just fried.. and with hot sauce they were out of this world.. later we got sushi, thai red curry chicken, lo mein, fried rice, and kobe beef. The sushi was alright but everything else was excellent. The thai curry had just the right amount of spice and good taste, the beef was flavorful. For dessert we got creme brulee --which was a rice pudding with a crusted top and chocolate cake. I didnt like the brulee but loved the chocolate cake. I also got tao's herbal blend tea to finish off the night.. which was lavender and chamomile.. that wasnt a good combination.. best to stick with green tea or black tea. The waiter (who looks like alton brown from food network) was very nice and attentive. They are willing to adjust the menu as per your preferences. Would like to go back when I get the chance... the Tao nightclub is supposed to be really good so will have to check it out. (its right behind the restaurant)Was this review helpful?

Came here to dance. Dressed very nicely and had an attractive girl with me, got let in faster than most. Very cheap club entrance fee, meaning we could drink more. The music was so good, the entire place boomed cheers when bangers played; dance floor was fun in both rooms. We heard every song we wanted to hear, mixed with electronic stuff that was easy to dance to. Didn't spend too much time looking at the walls or lightbulbs....Was this review helpful?
