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.

China, Thailand and Japan cuisine, all in one place, this place is called Tao. Tao is a Chinese concept signifying “Way” “Path” and from my experience, this restaurant most be in your “way” Tao offers you a sensual experience with exquisite cuisine, my favourite: Bamboo Steamed Vegetable dumpling with Crunchy Cucumbers.

I have been here before but on this night it was crowded, service was very slow and inattentive and food was okay but average for the pricing. People were sitting empty drinks on the edge of our table while we were dinning and were leaning against our booth. Very crowded and not much separation from dinning and the night club.... More

Went with my two twenty something daughters. The decor is so awesome. We got several different dishes to try and love everything. We didn't like the "specialty" cocktails though. Some people next to us got shots in a stand...kind of like a little tree so if your in the party mood that looked really fun. We will def go back.... More

We were pleased with delicious Asian food including tempura with several dipping sauces for starters and my husband had Kung Pao chicken and I had the Buddha Great Feast vegetarian dish of crisp veggies and udon noodles. Our server, Jeremy was helpful, solicitous without being over the top and knowledgeable about the dishes and ingredients.

Tao nightclub is awesome. The music they played had the crowd going all night long. It was very packed so I suggest a table if you can get one. We went for a bachelorette party and hands down was the best party scene i've been to in Vegas. Confetti, sparklers, drinks and dancing. Amazing scene.

Went here for my birthday meal. Inside the restaurant looks amazing, there's a giant buddha in the middle of it and the decorations are fantastic. Music is loud though, so if you want a quiet meal I'd suggest you go elsewhere. The service was quick considering how busy it was (it gets extremely busy so book in advance) and the... More
