This restaurant is a little gem hidden just off the main drag. To be honest its hard to understand why it wasn't much busier when we visited. Peking duck, dumplings were really good. My wife said it had the best soft shell crab she has...More

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
