“Truly Sublime”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

I went to Tao after quite some time with my family and I must say they have maintained the quality and taste of their food.

Variety: it's nice to gulp down their awesome paneer tikka's with a wide variety of other snacks of Chinese or Thai cuisine.

Good quantity: I was a little surprised to see their huge main course portion sizes. They provide a good quantity of dal makahani as compared to their counterparts.

Friendly Staff: very courteous and polite while taking orders and in no hurry to serve the food and send you back home

Obviously I don't have to say this but Tao still has got an excellent ambience despite the fact that they haven't done any major renovations since opening. To me the interior still looks great and the mammoth LCD screen instead of usual projectors is just a cherry on the cake.

A few snacks were served cold but all in all a good experience.

“Food options are not fine.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

The ambiance is great, service is good but I did not like their menu at all. You don't actually know what you are ordering. Few basic things taste just fine, rest is too much specific to the cuisines. My family liked the buffet when they visited, specially the non-veg stuff but I had just veg and it was not as expected, a la carte is not good.

“Awesome food for Thai and Chinese lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

TAO is my favorite place for a dinner outing. When Thai or Chinese is food is on my mind I would not go anywhere other than TAO in Chandigarh. TAO has lot of prawn specialties and the prawns are very tasty and juicy. The buffet option they have, however is not good. I tried the buffet once. Apart from a handful of 3 -4 items in the menu, most of the items are not so good. I had to fill me taste buds by eating only the starters which was the only good thing in the buffet menu.
One piece of advise to soup lovers. Never order a soup thats already on the buffet menu of the day. They will get your soup from that buffet serving itself and it will be of degraded quality than the Al-a-carte soup.

“Average Buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

I went to Tao for a team lunch. The starters and drinks were good but the main course looked as if its an unwanted guest. Some of the dishes were not properly warm. Others tasted average. The main course brought the the overall experience down.
