Great food!

My husband and I have eaten here many times and it's always good. I like the mapo tofu, hot and sour, and the ginger chicken!

Tao's is a nice restaurant for any occasion. I have been living in Thailand so I haven't been for a year now, but David is a proactive manager. The food is always fresh tasting and is prepared by a very nice elderly Chinese gentlemen. The staff are polite and attentive. Lunch time can get busy but that is a sign... More

After a long day driving the last thing my sister and I wanted to do was go out and face the traffic to find something to eat. We ordered from Tao's Chinese bistro. They told us the order would take about 30 to 40 minutes to bring it to the hotel but in actuality it was here in about 25... More

Delicious food, prepared by master chefs from Asia. The staff is friendly and the portion size generous. If you want great food for good value, this is a good choice

This is a friends and family run restaurant with great service and great food. The ingredients are fresh, the fare is tasty, and the prices are reasonable. It is a children, friends, and family place.

Every time we've eaten here we've had a great meal. Food is cooked up to order and is piping hot upon arrival. Good service as well. This restaurant appears to have a robust take-out business as well.

I love Tao's Chinese Bistro!! The food is authentic and delicious. My in-laws are Chinese and they have given it total thumbs-up, because the food is authentically prepared, not the usual sweetened up, Minute Rice versions that other Chinese food restaurants assume Americans need. The atmosphere is quiet and serene -- not the usual tacky red lanterns and lit up... More

We love the chicken in lettuce leaves appetizer and the Moo Shu Pork is tasty. Prices are reasonable and selection is broad. Service is excellent as well. Lots of young families dine here. There are many cute tots with whom to play hide and seek across the aisle. Food is lighter and more delicate than Thai. Usual Chinese restaurants do... More

This place has nice selection of chinese food. The food taste fine. The atmostphere of the resturant is nice. However, we had several incidents that to-go order were wrong, for instance, wanting hot and sour soup but got the egg drop soup or wanting white rice and got brown rice instead. So they need to make sure the order is... More
