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.

Don't expect truly authentic Thai food. Went at night during the week, which was kind of dead. I like the atmosphere at night though, it is quite a nice little bungalow style restaurant with seating outside and in. Don't be afraid to holler if you need service, they are very hands off. All the portions are large and meant to... More

Different to Thai we're used to but food was very tasty and filling, Tuna sashimi especially. Didn't have many of wines in the list but tried what seemed to be the only white available which was a Peruvian and was fine.
