Visited Tao with a large group (about 12 of us, i think) for my husbands 30th and it couldn't have been a better start to the evening. The food was mouth-wateringly good and the buzzy atmosphere was just what we were after. Really enjoyed it.

I've been some year ago into this place and I can assure the atmosphere is magical; good food, if you appreciate the asian/sushi style (but it seems everybody does since some year). Even if I'm not fond of this kind of cuisine, I was delighted...More
