Guests are transported from the City of Sin to the Pacific Rim inside TAO Asian Bistro, a 60,000 square-foot, multi-story “Asian City” housing a restaurant, banquet facilities, lounge and nightclub. Lush velvets and silks, waterfalls and century-old woods and stones accentuate the experience, and the restaurant’s signature 20-foot Buddha watches over every corner of the restaurant while floating peacefully above an infinity pool complete with Japanese koi. <br /><br />Corporate Executive Chef Ralph Scamardella has developed a menu for the 400-seat restaurant by incorporating culinary components from China, Japan and Thailand. Signature dishes include offerings from sea, sky and land including Chilean Sea Bass Satay with Wok Roasted Asparagus, a preparation of Peking Duck that consistently receives accolades, and Kobe Beef Shabu Shabu along with a full sushi bar. <br />

"Went to Tao not knowing what to expect. Young vibe, dramatic decor, fusion cuisine. Everything turned out well, from service to food. Spicy tuna tartare on crispy rice beautiful and delicious. Pork dumplings flavorful with light pastry. Spicy eggplant ratatouille surprising (in a good way). Omakase sushi was fresh, professionally prepared and well-presented. Sake menu could use some annotation, but the wine list is fine. We were never rushed but always attended to. This is a fine restaurant anywhere."

"We were disappointed throughout the meal. The wine markup is absurd: wine by the glass priced more than the price of a bottle retail. Amuse bouche of salmon tartare was fishy. Oysters ok but mignonette watery and indifferent. Scallops improperly prepared, hidden under greens. Most interesting was a black bean, okra & lobster succotash, advertised as a side but was an appetizer. The specials included king crab legs, which shockingly were $80 - no information or caution in advance. Shouldn't have to ask the price of a special in a good restaurant. This is Las Vegas, where money is king. I guess Aquaknox doesn't have to care with tourists and conventioneers. It shows. AND, no evidence of sustainability in the menu, as is advertised."
