“Good food and friendly wait staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

My friends and I recently had a chance to dine at this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. The place had a family feel and they were relatively quick with service. The food itself was excellent, I had the honey walnut shrimp, and it was fantastic. The dining room was a little on the warm side but not hot (considering the temperature outside was over 90 degrees, it was not a problem). The sushi we had was okay, however, the rice fell apart as I don't think it was packed correctly. Overall, I would definitely eat here again if in Taos.

“Veggie delights!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012 via mobile

Unassuming architecture houses a real find for vegetarians and vegans. The vegetarian menu is pretty extensive and the portions are more than generous. Super helpful staff offered fine suggestions.

“Don't pass this one by”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

A group of us went here for dinner one evening on the recommendation of our hotel. It was a quirkly place and wasn't really the type of place I would think of when eating in Taos, but we decided to give it the benefit of the doubt.

The portions were very large, the food was wonderful. The staff went out of their way to work with a group member who had an allergy. (One of the only places we found in Taos that was willing to do this.) They were able to accomodate our large group and made us all feel very welcome. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who visits Taos.

“Something for everyone - even Vegans!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

Song's is one of the few veg-friendly restaurants in Taos, with an entire page of vegetarian options that can be easily veganized, such as leaving the egg out of the Pad Thai with Tofu. The veggies are always fresh and perfectly prepared, and brown rice is usually available.

For lunch the other day, we ordered the Vietnam Roll (veggies in rice paper - 2 for $3.95), Seaweed Salad from the sushi bar (my favorite), Family Tofu (veggies and tofu in a spicy garlic sauce - $5.95 on the lunch menu), Tai Tofu (a wonderful red curry - $8.50 off the dinner menu), and brown rice. Everything was delicious, and although we took some of it home with us, we also ordered the Sesame Balls (sweet red bean paste in rice flour dough, rolled in sesame seeds and lightly deep fried. 6 for $3) for dessert. A wonderful little treat to go with the rest of our jasmine tea.

Service at Song's is always friendly, if sometimes a little bit slow, and it seems the husband/wife owners are always there, and happy to accommodate my strange vegan requests. Be aware of possible language barriers with some of the servers though, and be sure to ask clearly for exactly what you want.

My only complaint would be about the restroom. The building is old, and the bathroom is in serious need of updating. The sink was clean however, and there was soap and plenty of paper towels. I suspect it's a landlord issue rather than neglect on the restaurant owners' part.

Song's is a favorite of Taos locals who are in need of something other than southwest fare. Situated in a strange, glass fronted building across the street from Albertson's, it's easy for visitors to overlook. But if you venture in, you'll find some of the best Asian food in town. It's a nice break from all the "red or green" you normally find on a trip to New Mexico.
