Fine Japanese restaurant

I visited Japan and although the food at this restaurant is not a 1 on 1 copy, it certainly comes close. Recommendable, however, slightly expensive.

We eat at Tao once a week. Absolutely love this place. Lucky enough to have dined out in 38 countries, but this is still my favourite. High quality ingredients and interesting innovative dishes is what make them great. The staff are all exceptional, but Femke and Sil are in a league of their own.

This restaurant is really great. Ask for the specials, these are awesome! Espacially the burning roll. You can wake me up in the middle of the night for that one!

TAO is, in my opinion, the best Japanese restaurant in the Enschede area. The food is excellent, the service very good, as well as the atmosphere. It has very reasonable prices if you consider the quality of the food. Has plenty of choices for everyone, even if you don't like sushi/sashimi. The sesame ice cream is exquisite. Since it is...

Both the ambience and food are great. Lovely, traditional yet modern decoration. Its certainly not the cheapest place, but I bet you'll come back here once you know the place.
