If you are in the mood for great value Japanese food served by good natured staff this is the place to go. Have eaten here many times and it never fails but to satisfy. It is almost always busy and has really a really buzzing atmosphere which adds to the sense of occasion. Highly recommended.

We ordered some boxes of sushi for take away and realised at our place, that one box is completely missing. Other boxes were incomplete. Although we've been the only customers at this place, they were not able to make the right boxes for us. I called the manager and he told me, that they don't bring anything and that he... More

This is a Japanese Sushi restaurant that gives you the chance to try a little bit of everything. They have 113 items on the menu, each guest picks 5 things to order. After your choices are brought to your table, you get to pick another 5 items. You can do this 5 times! I only made it through 3 rounds.... More

I was expecting more from this restaurant considering we had to make a reservation in order to eat on a Saturday night. What I did not realize until my friend and I arrived, however, was that it is a fixed-price, all-you-can-eat sushi joint and not an actual sushi restaurant. If you are looking for great sushi, this is not the... More

Tao is mediocre at best, it's a sushi restaurant for people who have never had sushi before. The staff are not unfriendly or friendly, they just are, like being seved by an accountant.. You fill out want you want to order on a list and you don't get everything but they try and make you pay for all of it.... More

I spent a very enjoyable two weeks in Leeuwarden and loved the fixed price or "all you can eat" concept adopted by many good restaurants. TAO is a great quality Chinese / Asian fusion restaurant: not the usual all you can eat buffet rubbish but great quality food that is freshly prepared as the diner ploughs through the comprehensive menu....

Great value for money. In general I am not keen on all you can eat concepts (mainly because of the buffet or poor service) In this restaurant there is plenty of staff with good attitude and the range and quality of dishes is very good for the price.

The service and food were very good. All you can eat buffet. Well worth the cost. The food doesn't take long to come out either. Place was packed and we still got a table within 2 minutes.

The atmosphere at the restaurant is nice. Service is good. It is an all you can eat sushi place but of course you can also have other small dishes not being sushi/fish. Quality of the food is good. I had the chardonnay wine, which was not so good. The sauvignon blanc was a very good alternative. A bit of bummer... More

I was here twice, and lo liked it. Food is fresh, and i really like the concept with going several rounds, instead of ordring all at once. Sushi is good for the money. Service could be better. Some of the staff looks like they would rather be somewhere else, and some times the wait was longer than nessesary. Both times... More
