    Recommend the Mango Chicken. Complementary salad and ice cream is a nice touch.

    Try the Mango chicken as it's noting but perfection. I'm in love with food coma again. That's definitely the best Asian food I've ever had.

    This venue has changed its name due to a conflict. It is now Dao Fu.

    Heed the heat warnings. A 3 is still fairly spicy, if you have low tolerance do 1 or 0. A 3 is like medium spicy elsewhere.

    Awesome food! Be careful with the Spicy Scale - I like spicy food and went with a 4 and ended up sweating and clearing my sinuses!

    CAUTION: Make sure you double check your pickup order before leaving. I just had to drive all the way back here from home because they gave me the wrong one.

    It used to be called Tao, but it's still the same chef, food and owner.

    We come so often...not only because it is crazy flavorful...not only because it is very affordable but we can usually get a seat because they have not been featured on a food show...yet.

    Try the Oyster Mushrooms - With a sizzling black bean sauce and wild rice. Sauce has excellent flavor and a 5 on hotness scale is a 10 most other places..... This was amazing

    Love Tao! Best homemade tofu and yummy treats! Vegan or meat eaters there's something for everyone. (typical wait on weekends but well worth it!)

    The service sucks but they're nice people. The wrap it yourself rolls and the soups are generally the best bets.

    Very flavorful food, but be aware that they add tofu and/or fake meat to every vegan dish, even if it's not specified on the menu.

    Worst excuse for japanese food. The ramen had the wrong type of noodle and the broth tasted like fishwater. The yakitori was bland and cooked the wrong way. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
