Used to be a great place to hang and much on amazing Asian dishes with a lively bar scene. The quality of the food, service, and crowd have all declined. It wouldn't take much to get it back to its prime, but appears that there is not much energy in managing it.

I went to Tao’s on a Saturday evening. It is close to Route 17 and features ample parking. I found a seat at the bar, and the restaurant was pretty full. The choice of meals, including little tapas, was pretty nice, and I took a shrimp and then baby back ribs. Everything was cooked very well and served quickly. The... More

I have been here several times and it is always good. Bar area can be difficult to get a seat on a Saturday night, or Sunday during football. Food is always great. I celebrated my birthday here with 18 friends and they were amazing at setting a table to accommodate all of us on a Saturday night too! Would recommend... More

My wife and I use to love this place, especially for their Tapas and Happy Hour menu. Sadly the place has been on a steady decline downward, especially in the service department. The last (and probably final) time we visited we waited for a hostess to seat us for over 10 minutes with no one ahead of us. After getting... More

Expected to be a good girls/mom's nite out...Well it could of been much better. Went for the first Happy Hour that ended at 7pm, sitting at the bar, due to not enough seats or tables, and very busy, 5 of us are squeezed into this space at the bar. Ordered our food, food came out in a timely manner, needless... More

There's a great late night happy hour. Food is so-so but great prices and drinks. One of my friends loves this place so we go. Nice atmosphere in the bar area.

I would have given a higher rating if the bartender hadn't shared the fact that he was feeling a bit ill to a customer sitting next to me. Other that the sick bartender, the cocktails were well made and tasty. The food came out on time and was delicious.

Wide selection of food, good service, super fast process. I went for dinner on my birthday, the server seem rushed even though the restaurant wasn't crowded. The food is amazing, everything fresh and with high quality ingredients. The food came super fast, maybe 12 minutes after we Ordered. It was delicious. Highly recommended, the price is right.

A great little spot in East Rutherford, NJ. A very large menu to choose from and very reasonably priced. From sushi to steaks they've got it covered. Each time we have had terrific wait staff too - always friendly.
