“amazing food and service”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

An amazing restaurant on Leninsky prospekt. Great menu and the staff are very courteous.. the pricing is great, though alcohol is a bit expensive, though still worth it.. at the end of the meal you get a fortune cookie.. Definitely coming back.

“Visibly Degrading”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

I agree that most dishes are delivered cold. I even started suspecting they had been cooked very much earlier. We visited the place about 3 pm - the chef has been gone by that time, which only confirms my suspicion.
Tom Yan has become a soup with champignons and lemon juice - definitely neither of these ingredients is listed in the menu. When I asked about such a discrepancy the cafe manager tryed to convince me of their chef's new approach. Yet, I sinserely suspect that they are simply saving replacing the more expensive ingredients with the cheap ones/
The waiter mistook our order for somebody else's to make matters worse.

“Great Place for Chinese Dumplings i the center of Moscow!”
Reviewed April 26, 2011

Mama Tao is nice moderately priced Chinese restaurant located in the center of Moscow, Novokuznetskaya metro station. I've been there two times, and tasted various chinese dishes, but if you go there I recommend you just try there chinese dumplings- they have a pretty extensive list. They have another restaurant o Leninsky porospect, but I have not bee there. You will not be disappointed!

“Mama Tao - Surprisingly Amazing”
Reviewed August 30, 2010

Most Ginza project restaurants have average food. Most restaurants are chains or nice locations or sometimes amazing locations and venues but the food has never amazed me or most that I know. Mama Tao near Leninsky 68 has a very creative fresh and fairly large menue. When I was listing thru the menue there were so many items I wanted to order but realized I would have the room to eat everything I wanted. Best thing I tried was the spicy salad. Service was fantastic and the decor very nice. Best of all the prices are very affordable.
