Tao is mediocre at best, it's a sushi restaurant for people who have never had sushi before. The staff are not unfriendly or friendly, they just are, like being seved by an accountant.. You fill out want you want to order on a list and you don't get everything but they try and make you pay for all of it. The drinks are overpriced and slow. Never again.

I spent a very enjoyable two weeks in Leeuwarden and loved the fixed price or "all you can eat" concept adopted by many good restaurants. TAO is a great quality Chinese / Asian fusion restaurant: not the usual all you can eat buffet rubbish but great quality food that is freshly prepared as the diner ploughs through the comprehensive menu. Fresh and tasty Sushi is always a good indicator of a fine restaurants and TAO hit the nail on the head beautifully! The restaurant was packed during my mid week visit so bookings are almost essential. A slightly cafe like atmosphere and lacking in ambiance is the only thing keeping it from a 5 star in my opinion; the food is faultless and the staff were excellent. All you can eat for around €23!!!

Great value for money. In general I am not keen on all you can eat concepts (mainly because of the buffet or poor service) In this restaurant there is plenty of staff with good attitude and the range and quality of dishes is very good for the price.

The service and food were very good. All you can eat buffet. Well worth the cost. The food doesn't take long to come out either. Place was packed and we still got a table within 2 minutes.

The atmosphere at the restaurant is nice. Service is good. It is an all you can eat sushi place but of course you can also have other small dishes not being sushi/fish.
Quality of the food is good. I had the chardonnay wine, which was not so good. The sauvignon blanc was a very good alternative.
A bit of bummer was that you have to pay extra for the ice cream at the end, which in most places is included in the all you can eat price.
