Description: 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.

The food here was amazing. Best food we had in the USA. The service was fantastic and the waitress took photos for us. The meals came out in just the right spacing. Not cheap but worth the money for such a lovely venue. A little dark for my liking but that's the way these place go. The nightclub upstairs was... More

Me and my wife went here while we were visiting Vegas. We were very tired from walking around and were also extremely hungry. We decided to check out this place for dinner, and I am glad we did. The ambiance of the restaurant is very nice and soothing. The entrance is so beautiful with statues and flowers/candles in small ponds.... More

I was warned that even with a reservation, we could end up waiting for at least 1/2 hour for our table. They sat us immediately upon arrival and the hostess was most gracious, offering too take pics of us later if we wanted. Our server was equally friendly and helpful, guiding us through the menu based on our preferences and... More

A great restaurant to get you in the party mood. Very lively atmosphere and the DJ played some great music at just the right volume. All the dishes we had were excellent - our favourites were the crispy chicken and the Singapore noodles. Unfortunately our waiter was not so good at making recommendations and allowed us to order way too... More

Amazing atmosphere and great staff. We told our waiter that we wanted to try several different items from the chef, we agreed on a price per person and he took care of the rest. My favorite was the Chilean Sea Bass, but the Tuna Tartar with Rice Cake was a close second. We will absolutely be going back to Tao.

WOW, WOW, WOW. I have never had Asian fusion food that was soooooo good. First of all, Ronnie, our maître d, was the best I have ever had. It didn't hurt that he was from North Carolina. Maybe maître d is going over board, but, he ran the show at our table. The first night, we went on a recommendation... More

The very best experience for food In Las Vegas. Having been to Vegas about 10 times in my life< this was by far the best meal I had ever had there. As seen on the food channel, the Chilean Sea bass was to die for as well as the shrimp roll and lobster roll and the lobster won tons. All... More
