Go here. Or get carry out. Don't mess with lesser Chinese restaurants. Tao uses better ingredients and the meals taste better and won't leave you regretting.

For a place in a strip center their food is very good. Service is good and friendly. They have been there a long time so that says something about the food. Unfortunately it never seems very busy at dinner time. But it a great place for a quiet very good dinner.l

Great food at a great price. Their sauces are amazing! I love their egg rolls with the cucumber sauce. Rarely crowded and they do take out as well. A hidden gem

This restaurant is a little hard to find. The food was very tasty and the portions were adequate but not large.Everything was prepared fresh and served piping hot. The sweet and sour chicken had a nice crunch even though it was smothered with the sauce. Tempura shrimp appetizer very good. Good stop for a moderate price. They do not have... More

I go for lunch weekly with my friend who always wants to eat at Tao. It's an easy accommodation to make as the food is always hot, fresh and tasty. I can't tell how many people we have turned on to the restaurant. Even had my birthday party there last year!

Usually I'm not a fan of Chinese food, but this place is awesome! Everything is hot and freshly prepared, MSG *not* an ingredient. Portions are generous. My ginger and garlic chicken smelled divine and tasted just as good. Service can be a little slow but it's because food is made to order. There's one main waiter who takes superb care... More
