Description & Atmosphere
Dramatic doesn't begin to describe Tao — not
only does it house one of the hottest and most visually stunning
restaurants in Las Vegas, it also features a cool ultra-lounge,
large banquet facility and one of the Strip's "hippest" nightclubs.
Like its New York counterpart,
Tao's complex features
decor, waterfalls, and a variety of exquisite Buddhas — including
a hand-carved 20-ft.-tall Buddha that sits
an infinity pool filled with Japanese carp.
Tao Dining Areas
Tao has three floors — the main dining room and sushi bar
(just off the chic lounge/bar area), 2nd
floor mezzanine level
and the "hot"
Nightclub on the top floor.
The main dining room has more "buzz," especially near
the kitchen and sushi bar. For more intimate dining, we recommend
level, overlooking the main dining area and giant Buddha.
Tao's specializes in Hong Kong Chinese, Japanese and Thai cuisines.
Following the tradition of Asian cultures, Tao has designed the
menu for sharing — more to taste!
Menu standouts include everything
from Kobe Beef to traditional
Peking Duck — all prepared
by master chefs from
Our favorites include:
Crispy Tuna Sashimi Roll with Edaname;
Thai Stuffed Shrimp with Garlic, Lime and Thai Chili Sauce; Peking
Duck Spring Roll with Hoisin Sauce; Spicy Hoi Yin Eggplant, XO
Chinese Long Beans, and Miso-Glazed Chilean Sea Bass with Wok
Chic Lounge & Bar Area
Tao's chic lounge and bar area
is a fun place to enjoy a cocktail
and people-watch. The darkened room
quite large, yet has an intimate feel to it.
Cosmos and Martinis!
Tao's mezzanine level (photos below) is
ideal for quieter conversation and restaurant views — it
overlooks the main dining area, giant
Buddha and infinity pool.
A small sushi bar is located in the main
dining room — good for last-minute reservations if you can't
get a table.
Semi-Private Party Room
A small semi-private room is located
just off Tao's main dining area.
Banquets for Special Events
Tao can accommodate 20-2000 people for special
banquets and events.
Reservations are recommended during peak
Exclusive Valet located directly in front of the Venetian.
