So fancy, so beautiful with a big statue. If want to impress your date take her/him there! Very good service, good food, the desserts are so delicious and I recommend you to get the Chilean wine as well. I don’t give 5 points to all the restaurants but this one deserves it.

I’ve been here six times and I will keep coming back. Some of their sushi is to die for and I don’t even like sushi. The drinks are fantastic, the service is great, and I think you’ll love it.

Great looking bar downstairs that serves creative Asian themed drinks. We were seated upstairs and had a great view of the crowd and the big Buddha. I had the orange chicken and my wife had the pad Thai. Both very good. Desert was nice and creamy caramel ice cream with sesame cookies, delish. Service was great and the music and vibe is fun!

This is one of the most beautiful restaurants in the city! Rhianna the bartender was so wonderful! She is truly a gem and the Tao group is lucky to have such a talented, kind and gracious employee! The food was decadent and our server was so very kind and attentive! We are headed to Miami in June and we are planning to visit that location. Thank for a wonderful experience!

This place is pure fun.

Yes, the food and drinks are expensive and the atmosphere is loud and busy but its still a must.

The food is off the chart amazing and the environment is one of a kind.

Yes, even with reservations you are going to wait for a table. That's life in the big city. IF you don't have dinner reservations good luck getting a table.

The service is still pretty good considering this restaurant moves at the speed of light.
