Visited Tao's while on a weekend visit to a friend who lives in Zurich. Following a win for Ireland in rugby earlier that afternoon, we were in buoyant mood and eagerly anticipating exquisite food, wine and a bubbly atmosphere. The restaurant is located on the quiet Austinergrasse off the Bahnhofstrasse and we headed straight to our table having deposited our... More

Located in the City centre, Tao's represents the perfection of the 'fusion' restaurant. Superb food in an elegant but unobtrusive ambience, excellent service from waitresses who were helpful but never condescending. Fine 'house wine' - as you would expect at an establishment such as this - unusually a Swiss Merlot, of all things - non-alcoholic beer also available. Pricey by... More

Nice Restaurant with a large menu of fusion food. Good wine selection but the food and wines are quite pricey. Nevertheless the whole package is worth to be recommended!

Well, this is a little gem hidden away just off Banhoffstrasse in the Old Town - except not so little as it has many elements to it. An outside space, a funky cool bar, ground floor and upper floor restaurant with a discreet and friendly service. Loved the menu and hot stone food offering; the Prosecco also went down a... More

Had a business dinner with an important friend and client. Great atmosphere, menu really good. I had fish for main, blackened cod which was excellent. Also did the TAO special as a starter, very very good. No faults at all

The service and food was outstanding. I will make sure to go there again. The server was very helpful with explaining all of the items on the menu we asked about. The menu was varied and there were many things too choose from....they all looked good.

excelent cuisine. TAO´s give Asian cuisine an extraordinarily imaginative twist- it is not traditional Asian Food! it is a novel approach to blend flavours with an asian frame. The beef tataki was superb as were the dumplings. Excellent presentation.
