Best Chinese, not just in Rio Rancho

The magic of Tao's is that it isn't just the best Chinese food in Rio Rancho, but some of the best anywhere I have been. It reminds me of stopping at restaurants in Chinatown in San Francisco.

Although I live in the heights and... More

This is one of our favorite Chinese food restaurants to go to. We eat in and do take out at this establishment. My favorite is their hot and sour soup.

I was thrilled to find Tao's Chinese Bistro. The food was by far the best Chinese food I have ever eaten. I had the egg fu yung the first time. Crispy, not greasy and very flavorful. The rice was exceptional. I went back the same week and tried the sweet and sour chicken and it too was fabulous. Great place... More

Try the Sesame chicken. My wife and I each ordered Sesame chicken and we could have shared a single order. Great food, large quantity, reasonable prices
