I ate at Tao two years ago and my impression of it was not as good. But thanks to the recently opened Chinese restaurants, not only all the nearby chinese restaurants have improved a lot because of the competition. And Tao is the best of all the Chinese restaurants outside flushing. And it is probably better than most of the flushing restaurants.

This level of quality Chinese cooking is usually found in Manhattan and rarely in the LI suburbs. But this small modest restaurant consistently delivers authentic, delicious food and their home-made noodles are fantastic. Well worth seeking out. Beware: hidden on the side of a small shopping center, with a tiny sign by the road in Chinese so you might drive past it, as I did (3 x !!!). A GPS helps, but keep you eye out for the Liberty Travel sign on the West side of the parking lot building and then turn in immediately! First time's the hardest, then it's a piece of cake.
Speaking of cake, they have no desserts. "It's not the tradition," they said. But who cares?

I love Tao's Deli! If you're a fan of chinese food but can't stand the typical over-sugared way too oily take out food found in every Long Island strip mall - Tao's is for you. The food sometimes appear deceptively simple, but the careful preparation and authentic savory spicing will make your taste buds happy. I'm going there right now!

Best authentic Chinese this side of the Brooklyn Bridge. Family owned and run, not your typical Chinese take out! More of a deli with authentic home cooking and warm, friendly service. The owners live in the US for many years and speak fluent English, so special orders are not a problem. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
