We had a buffet lunch at Tao and found it was quite good. The ambience is reasonably good (though hardly any Tao, which is a Chinese symbol), and the food is also good. The staff is friendly. There is nothing extraordinary, though nothing bad either. It is a good, family restaurant and there is enough place to sit.

We celebrated our parents wedding anniversary at Tao and thoroughly enjoyed the ambience and service along with good food. The restaurant is conveniently located on Madhya Marg with ample parking space. The starters were too good and so was the main course. Overall the personal attention of the staff was the icing on the cake. By the way we also... More

When we reached there, first thing we faced was the directions for Dance bar...the security told us to go to the back side of the main restaurant; which was almost more than half km around. 2ndly there was no proper lightning n parking facilities for cars on back...

Quite heard of the place but didn't turn out to be the one I expected. First thing first, don't ever buy there deal from Trideal. There is all inclusions written there in the website but after reaching at restaurant they'll deny half of it. So you are basically left with Dal Roti. - Their staff behaves like they doing us...

We were invited for a party at the Tao restobar. The place is spacious and has a good dance floor. However, the place is not as sophisticated as it looks. The DJ is consistently bad, playing tasteless Punjabi songs for the "Punjabi crowd," even though the crowd was only responding to Hindi songs. The collection of music was quite bad... More

Nothing about the place was good. We entered the restaurant and no one was there to show our table although we had a reservation. Starters were cold, main course was pathetic, mocktails were bad esp. Peach ice tea which was full of syrup. Ice cream was totally melted. Service also was very very poor. We had to ask for each... More

This New Year (2015) Eve, we had decided to stay away from crowded new year bashes and rather settle down for a fine dine, spending the last moments of the year 2014. Tao was a natural choice, as we had heard a lot about its multi-cousine specialty from varied sources and word-of-mouth, Tao lived up to the set expectations and... More
