I paid my visit to Tao's restaurant on valentine day for their valentine special set dinner. For your information, they serve regular set course menu for lunch and dinner. Luckily I called for booking in advance before 3 weeks. It was full house on the night. We are at the last slot 8.30pm so we can enjoy our dinner at no rush. The ambience of the fine dining restaurant is modern and spacious. You will get a better view of Singapore river if you sit at the window side which I recommend.The food wise, everything was served in order. The foods were well decorated in nice plate. As starter, we had scallop & sea urchin tempura, escargot platter. They wrote "my valentine" on the middle of the plate for the special occasion. Taste is good for the scallop but not the escargot which I don't like the smell. As cold dish, we had lavender bluefin tuna, compressed watermelon. The tuna was so fresh and so was the sweet watermelon.As side dish, we had soft shell crab tempura, truffle mash. The soft shell crab was mediocre but the truffle mash was impressive. It was mashed sweet potato with truffle. It was so tasty with the natural sweet of sweet potato. The best mash I had.As soup, we had pumpkin soup and cream of mushroom. The cream of mushroom is more recommended even I'm a pumpkin lover because I thought the pumpkin soup could have done better in flavor.As main courses, we had bbq pork rib, apple cider braised red cabbage and crispy skin fillet of Tasmanian king salmon. The BBQ pork rib is highly recommended which was so juicy and tender. However, the salmon was a tad overcooked.As dessert, we had sticky date pudding with vanilla ice cream. The pudding is good match to eat with the ice cream to balance the sweetness. As tea, we had hot rose apple tea and ice summer peach tea. Both were good.I will visit them again for their regular menu set. continue reading

Always love the ambience of the restaurant, a good place to have gathering with friends in their private rooms. Went recently again and found out they have a new menu. A bit pricey though, $55++/person.However, was plesantly surprised, the quality of food is worth the dollars. The airflow sashimi, Tuna and Kurobuta Pork belly! I will definitely recommend my friends to try the Pork belly when they go.Overall, love the food, service and ambiance. Will definitely come back and try their other new dishes! continue reading

Used to love the Tao's at Pomo. They shifted to the Central - and there seem to be much lesser people (the prices have increased as well, probably that's why)Appetizer. Complementary plum drink. Good to start off a mealFruit salad - normal fruits with salad. probably something u can make at homeThis Escargot is surprisingly good. Love itGrape mallow tea and apple rose tea. Love them - refreshing and not too sweet.Creme Brulee. Normal. But nice. Not too sweet.An overall good meal. But will be awesome if it stays at the old price continue reading

Bacon & Mushroom gratin as starter and it's delicious. Eat together with the bread stick and it's awesome. Tao's signature BBQ pork ribs. Erm... Had a higher expectation for the main course, the pork ribs din disappointed me. The pork ribs is tender and juicy, but the bbq sauces a bit salty for me. Overall, it's good.Iced rose apple tea. Drink the iced rose apple tea after those oily food is refreshing. continue reading

I have been a frequent customer of Tao's ever since they opened at PoMo, and now they occupy Zero Zero, which has better ambience. Love their starter, the Bacon and Mushroom Gratin, goes very well with bread, but can be quite filling. Had their baked atlantic flounder with cheese - cheese was alright, not overwhelming, and fish was fresh, but not a very impressive dish. Also love their iced fruit teas, very refreshing on a hot day. The grilled mushroom was something new, and I liked it as well, as I like mushrooms a lot. continue reading
