Best Chinese restaurant in New Mexico

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... read 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

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

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!

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
