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.

We were impressed with our first meal at Tao and were keen to revisit. However, we found it disappointing on this visit. The crispy chicken nibbles weren't crispy and coated in a weet-box. The sweet and sour pork was average and was minced pork in...More
