Tao Authentic Asian Cuisine, Auto City


Tao Authentic Asian Cuisine – when we first saw this name, I heard the services was lousy, food was expensive. However, a year later, they opened a branch in Auto City, Juru. So, you could imagine how good or lousy of their services?

I have never been to this place, due to the above mentioned. But, why am I here this time? Well, out of curiosity that’s why am here, second reason is a free treat from family, so, why not, huh?
[haha, that’s the main reason]

When I entered this place, first word from me was a ‘Wow!’. Just look at these pictures… it’s nicely decorated into a Balinese design, it was so cozy to dine in here. They even have man-made lagoon, water fall, and so on.

This is the only outlet which has a lounge where you could have a glass of beer after you have your meal on the other side.

Total 8 of us, we were just ordered, ordered and ordered. The waitress that took our order kept reminding us that every wastage of 100gram will be charged RM10. We were just looked at her and smiled. Cuz, these are the bunch of glutton here, how could have wastage? [grin]

Look at what we have ordered…


Hot & spicy scallop
Assorted sashimi
Assorted sushi
Tempura
Seafood teppanyaki
Pan grilled lamb (wonder why Japanese food has something so western)
Curry lamb
Salads
California rolls
Cawanmushi
Unagi maki
Pan grilled salmon
Cold soba
Last… Papaya Salmon

Which we do not know what is it, but the waitress kept recommending this to us. Well, since this is highly recommended, we gave it a try.

Oh ya, did I tell you that orange juice & green tea are free flow?

i wouldn't recommend this restaurant if anyone preferred better service for the price paid in fact the staff can certainly learn something even from fast food chain store..... they rating is so bad i would rate only 5/10...... they even set all their worker to mostly foreign worker who don't really understand English... to make the matter even worse the manager so sarcastically reply me when i ask about the order mistake done by the worker ... wont go again in the foreseeable future
