TAO, meaning ‘balance and harmony ‘ is a simple and elegant dining experience. The contemporary Asian fusion restaurant is affordable yet classy and authentic, yet modern.

Start off with a ‘little something ‘ like spiced edamame, Tao deep fried chicken cutlet with sweet chilli sauce and mouthwatering chicken. Delicious main courses include braised lamb shank with potato mash, Basa fish fillet in Sichuan hot chilli sauce and stir fried venison in XO sauce. Tao’s renowned dumplings are also a must-try, available with different meat, seafood and vegetarian fillings. Save room for something delicious and unexpected from our ‘sweet things’ selection.

The bar offers a good variety of your favourites New Zealand wines, beers as well as Chinese tea. The intimate setting is beautifully appointed and is perfect for a relaxed meal and drink with friends.
