We enjoyed the food and drinks here. The shrimp wontons were great. The stuffed squid was amazing. We got some appetizer that was fantastic. The service was fast and friendly.

Ordered Pad Thai & penang curry and the waiter came back to ask us if we wanted red, yellow or green curry??? We are Australian so are used to pretty amazing Asian food and we were extremely underwhelmed. Pad Thai was made with noodles that were almost fettucine, and had a weird green curry sauce with vegetables through it, then... More

hi, sorry about not fulfilling your expectations. we do have a good explanation: ours is a Oriental Fusion restaurant. that means that do infuse oriental food with peruvian cuisine, therefore the ''weirdness''. sorry again. sincerely, Henri More

Just don't come here. Look for "matito" in the north part of the street. Apart from being the corniest place, and the most touristic place in the world, you come here to eat sushi. And it's bad. Really bad. Sweet(!) rice from the wrong kind, tasteless fish and seafood. Just very very bad. And expensive! Give it up...

the presentation at Tao was lovely but nothing was lost on the taste. I had the chicken curry. Although it was their hottest, it was barely spicy at all. That said it was flavourful and delicious. My wife had the beef noodles which was also very good. Best meal so far in Mancora.

The plates were a bit on the small side in terms of portion but the flavors packed on the plates were big. The dishes were great - not a grain of rice or noodle was left on my plate and friends' plates. The prices are decent for a touristy spot they wont break the bank but they wont save you... More

Delicious food and the finest service with an excellent wine list and desert cart at your convinience. look for the daily MENU listing. If you visit Máncora and don´t try this restaurant you will have missed an incredible dining experience.

My girlfriend and I visited on Jan 2nd, when the city of Mancora is crazy full with people! The staff were kind enough to inform us that the food may delay 30 minutes but we were happily surprised that it arrived within less than 15 minutes! The fried rice and the noodles were amazing! The mostly women staff did their... More

Chaos, nonchalance and major disorder. This place has so much potential, however, it is super disorganised. They require a maitre d/front of house person to welcome you, waitresses with specific sections and more general awareness. As travellers we look forward to going somewhere different for food so the prospect of Thai food was enticing. We did read the reviews beforehand... More
