Disappointed

Very disappointed in quality of food which did not live up to the appearance of the restaurant. Spotlessly clean but meal was served on cold plated and was not very warm. Also served with hair in the food for which they were very appologetic. Discounted on the final bill for inconvenience. Will not be back

Nice decor & food

I ate here on Friday night and as it was my first time at this restaurant I decided to try out one of the set menu's. The food was lovely especially the spare ribs. We didn't like one of the dishes offered so they allowed us to change it for another one when we ordered our meal. There was more than enough food for two.We had set menu for two, 2 soft drinks one glass of wine and a coffee on the house total bill was around 50E as we had chosen the more expensive set menu.The service was good friendly but not in your face staff.

Middle of the Road.

We had been meaning to try Tao`s for ages and finally got around to it if only because the brand new restaurant we set out for was closed on Mondays!

Tao`s, in the heart of the restaurant area of Kato Paphos, looks good from both the outside and the inside. We got a pleasant welcome and the service was efficient and friendly but, that said, it wasn`t a busy night.

We ordered Special Dim Sum and Salt & Pepper King Prawns as starters. The Dim Sum was a little too stodgy for my liking but the Salt & Pepper Prawns were excellent.

These were followed by sizzling Cod, special Chicken in a terayaki sauce, deep fried crispy broccoli, noodles and steamed rice. The cod and the broccoli were excellent, the noodles good and the chicken wasn`t bad - just a little uninspiring.

We were fairly full after this but interestingly we weren`t offered any desserts which suggests they don`t do them? Either way we were kindly offered coffees `on the house` and opted for a coffee and a mint tea. Disappointingly the coffee was DIY instant with the iniquitous sachet and they didn`t serve Jasmine tea.

The bill came to Euros 56 including a gin & tonic, a beer and a large bottle of water which we thought was fair. It also came with their card offering a 15% discount the next time we went.

A very pleasant meal but Tao`s is not, in our opinion, the best Chinese restaurant in Paphos.

great food

I came here last year and brought my partner this time who loves sushi and so was delighted that they had a japenese manu. We ordered sushi and spring roll starters and then sizzling chicken and cod with steamed rice. We asked for proper rice bowls as we were eating with chopsticks and they brought a more suitable bowl for us no problem.
The spring rolls were excellent and they brought out an extra piece of sushi for us.
The main courses were tasty and the rice nicely sticky as it should be for eating with chopsticks. We were full so had no room for dessert but they did offer drinks on the house which we declined. However, the owner/manager camne over with a Baileys and a Brandy. I hate Baileys and my partner was driving so we had to decline again! Hope they wern't offended.
Price was about €45 for 2 courses with beer and water, the sushi was expensive though at €6 for 3 pieces.
