My husband and I went for a nice date night, and Maneet Chauhan has outdone herself with Tansuo! The Shrimp Rangoon and Kung Pao Cauliflower were incredible. They are also offering cooking classes over the next couple of months to learn how to cook a...More

Atmosphere is excellent; the most attractive of the three restaurants owned by the same person. Dim Sum was excellent; there are no bad or weak choices. Ask for the hot chili oil sauce-a must. The rice with pork belly is a standout. As are the...More

We visited Tansuo last Saturday night, not realizing it was during CNY celebration time. That made the visit even more fun. We enjoyed a couple of appetizers, shrimp rangoon and spring rolls, and dinner entrees of General Tso chicken and pork belly fried rice. We...More

Perhaps it was Christmas Eve or maybe they were over whelmed but this was not a great Christmas Eve. It took ninety minutes for entrees, which weren’t that great. We had ordered Peking duck (very good) and the waiter couldn’t figure out if it should...More

This is such a frustrating review to write, because my two experiences at Tansuo have been so mixed. Something is always GREAT, and then there's always things that I just think are blah. I went to Tansuo for the second time last week for a...More

We went here for thanksgiving dinner. The food was Chinese fusion. But not American Chinese. Food was excellent. Definitely will go back to this place next time we are in Nash.

On the same night we had a very inhospitable experience at a local spot (Sperry's), we opted to try something new. Tansuo is an outstanding restaurant in the Gulch. Great wine selections and half price Wednesday. Very innovative menu, outstanding food and wonderful service. We...More

What a funky fun vibe. Maneet from Food Channel has a cool concept with this one. 80s music playing was fun. We went for “Wok and wonton Wednesday”. Ok so it sounded silly but all wine bottles were half price.....so it worked for us. Dishes...More
