E-Tao has an extensive menu of unique Asian foods. We had dumplings (based on TA reviews), a pineapple/seafood fried rice and a lomein dish with meat. All were very good. We typically visit Chinatown while in Houston, but we may return to e-Tao instead. The restaurant was clean, but a little noisy. Service was excellent, the waitress answered all of... More

First off: they have avocado smoothies! Always a draw for me. All of the staff I interacted with were very nice. The waiter took my food allergies seriously and even came back to let me know of some potentially related ingredients. The food was very good - I had the honey garlic scallion chicken (from the Chef's Specialties part of... More

We ordered the shrimp dumplings and the curried noodles. It was all very fresh with no MSG, and truly delicious! The dumplings had a scrumptious dumpling sauce on them, and the noodles had chicken, pork and shrimp in them. I am already craving those dumplings and may go back tomorrow! Give this little place a try! It is in the... More

When you think of Mall food you do NOT expect E-Tao! Great place to eat on lunch break, in between shopping, or making a trip into the Galleria for some yummy Dim Sum. I love getting the Dim Sum appetizer for my meal. Great variety because there is just so much to choose from. Enjoy-its definitely a place to stop... More

I eat here regularly with my wife. It is located near Nordstroms in the Galleria. The dishes are always authentic and tasty. I highly recommend it.

If I didn't know better, I would have thought I was in China when I ate the dumplings from E-Tao, they were that delicate and delicious. I've had dim sum this good in Beijing, not in Houston. Also wonderful was the Tom Yum soup. I can't wait to return and try more of their menu. My guess is they'll soon... More

We wanted something light while finishing shopping at the Galleria mall. We stopped in E-Tao. First, the clientele were mostly asian - a great sign. Second, the service was efficient. Third, the dumplings were great. We had the dumpling "combo" - very good variety and very tasty. We kept ordering more dumpling dishes - all great. Very cool place.

I was in Houston for a conference and stayed at the Westin Oaks which is adjacent to the Galleria Mall. I stopped by E-Tao for dinner and lunch on two separate occasions and both experiences were ok. The first stop was for dinner where I ordered the soft shell crab fried rice and their signature dumplings. The fried rice defaults... More
