A busines dinner on cold night. Worth the visit. Awesome food. Though dumplings looks great but not tasty enough. We enjoyed Gong Bao chicken as well as fried soft shell crab. Stake is a positive vibe. Awesome ambiance. Value for money and repeat visit is...More

The best dumplings I have found in Auckland - fresh, fresh, fresh. Great service and really reasonably priced. Have been back several times.

Loved this place, it’s got a different feel and set up to other Chinese restaurants, it was quite industrial and open space. The food was amazing, loved the dumplings and crispy Peking duck with pancakes. I will definitely be back.

I've been to a lot of Chinese restaurants that look, feel and taste the same, but Tao in Newmarket is not one of those. The decor is simple but stylishly comfortable and the restaurant area is smallish, unlike the usual oversize run-of-the mill Chinese restaurant....More

We came on a Saturday afternoon. It wasn’t busy. We came because if trip advisor reviews. They met our expectations- the dumplings are great and we had a Spivey noodle soup which was delicious. Would definitely come again.
