I dined here twice during my stay. I must say their cocktail list is amazing so go here for drinks at least. One night i had the curry and it was good. On the other night I had a chicken salad... although some elements of this dish were nice i couldn't even eat the chicken... they had fried it in... More

Despite I believe it was impossible to get good asian fusion cusine in Mancora, Tao proved me wrong. I went for the specials tonight: a fried wonton nest topped with chunks of fresh raw tuna and avocado with a touch of peruvian rocoto and fresh lime ( as an entree) and a huge fish for 2, fried in garlic and...

I ordered some Thai food here during dinner time. The menu has a lot of choices, so I decided to try a Thai curry. Unfortunately I had to wait more than one hour for my dish being served. I noticed that some customers left after half an hour of waiting without being served. It was because I already ordered, if... More

Being a huge fan of asian food was excited to find this restaurant as I had been without for 2 months while in South America. We ordered chicken in oyster sauce and fried rice and pad thai. Both were very tasty and well presented. The pad Thais flavours differed quite some from original pad thai but the flavours were still... More

So glad to have found this restaurant on my first day in Mancora. The service of the waitress was great... She explained thoroughly their very complex menu. The food was amazing! Perfect Peruvian/ Asian fusion. We had the lomo saltado with tamarind spicy sauce and a chicken pad Thai/ linguini fusion.... The food was served fast and I would definitively... More

Ate there on several occasions and each meal was equally delicious. Seared Tuna steaks drizzled in Teriyaki sauce with a saltado on the side for S. 25 It was a great value. The drinks are a bit pricey but they aren't afraid to pore plenty of booze in :)

We went with several friends to Tao. We were delighted by the extensive menu, but I was really turned off by the sashimi tuna. It was soft and mushy and I was afraid to eat it. The Pad Thai was just OK, nothing special. I think I will give it a miss in the future.

Enjoyed a tuna Thai rice here, very filing and the tuna was cooked really well. Drinks menu is quite expensive though, so best to leave the cocktails for another place.
