Guests are transported from the City of Sin to the Pacific Rim inside TAO Asian Bistro, a 44,000 square-foot, multi-story “Asian City” housing a restaurant, banquet facilities, lounge and nightclub. Lush velvets and silks, waterfalls and century-old woods and stones accentuate the experience, and the restaurant’s signature 20-foot Buddha watches over every corner of the restaurant while floating peacefully above an infinity pool complete with Japanese koi. Corporate Executive Chef Ralph Scamardella has developed a menu for the 400-seat restaurant by incorporating culinary components from China, Japan and Thailand. Signature dishes include offerings from sea, sky and land including Chilean Sea Bass Satay with Wok Roasted Asparagus, a preparation of Peking Duck that consistently receives accolades, and Kobe Beef Shabu Shabu along with a full sushi bar.

Great food, very loud atmosphere

Whoever designed the interior of Tao did an amazing job! We were lucky enough to be seated at the "Big Budda" table, the giant budda with the koi pond underneath was very impressive. The food was very good, served family style to share with a large lazy susan in the middle of the table. The... read more

I had the cocktail that the waiter suggested. It was good. Glass of wine was good. Loved the lobster wontons. Sashimi etc. was fresh. The lobster (California rolls) were good. Passion fruit sticky pudding was good. The nightclub on a Thursday night was too busy so we were only in there for 5 minutes.

Oh man! Loved this club. I dont party much but this place was impressive. Very cool, gave the other clubs in vegas a run for their money. Find a promoter, get in free and dont wait in line.

Honestly, the clearest memory I have of this place was enjoying TAO Love Potion #9. I usually stick to sugar-free drinks, but I made a few exceptions. Out of the three different "sugary" drinks I had over the course of the trip, this was by far the best. For dinner, I went for an appetizer; I had the squab lettuce... More

To celebrate my 40th while on a work trip to Vegas I requested TAO as my dinner location. I'm soooo very glad that I did. Having previously visit TAO for dinner on another Vegas trip, I knew what to expect. And I was not disappointed, not one single bit. From the wines to the appetizers to the sushi to the... More

This is totally a place to take a date. Not so good for 8 hungry guys. The quality of the food is amazing and knock your socks off, but quantity is too small for the steep price. The only forgiving part of the value is that you can get a stamp that gets you into the nightclub and bypasses the... More

Let's start out by just saying wow! This restaurant is awesome. The atmosphere from the moment you enter to the moment you are leaving is spot on. Don't want to ruin anything, but this restaurant has its act together. Shrimp and lobster wontons rocked. In fact, I would lick the bowl when no one was looking. Our second small plate... More

I was surprised by just how good an experience this was. In the middle of the strip, just off the sidewalk. Service was excellent - you were made to feel at home with great personal attention. The food is probably the best Asian meal I have had in a long time - and I have done a lot of traveling... More
