Fresh and tasty meals at reasonable prices

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

We've been patroning Tao for 3 years every other week sometimes weekly. I had a baby 16 months ago and I've been asking David, the owner, to please put in a baby changing station and he keeps blowing me off until finally asking for the 80th time, he told me that a 200 dollar station isn't worth one customer!!

We wanted inexpensive but excellent Chinese food on a Saturday night, and we found it at Tao's Bistro. The menu has many familiar items and few specials not usually found on a Chinse menu. We ordered the spring rolls. They arrived in a thin skin (not pasty or overly fried as is often the case elsewhere), filled with crisp fresh... More

I have travelled 40 minutes in traffic to get to Tao in order to eat a really yummy chinese meal. I'm from New York and I was spoiled growing up so close to China Town where I could get a great meal of asian cuisine, authentically prepared (not the glop that Americans like... no sweet sauces, fried junk food stuff)...
