Welcome to TAO



Tao, an ancient Chinese philosophy, is translated as

the path of all life.  Seeming opposites balance each other and reveal the truth:



Out of the small, arises the great,

out of the nothingness, flows all that is to be,

out of humility, emerges power,

out of emptiness, evolves fulfilment,

out of discord, comes harmony,

out of want for nothing, comes peace.


As life is about balance, like the balance between Yin and Yang, black and white, hot and cold; TAO, the restaurant, seeks to lend balance and engage the senses with an unexpected combination of flavours:


A Fusion of East and West Cuisine.


The Taoist ideal of health means harmony with Tao - the path of all life. Nourishing the body is as important in harmonizing with the path as are philosophy and meditation.


TAO, the restaurant, is dedicated to a nutritious and delicious dining experience, which contributes to a balanced and healthier lifestyle.


TAO offers a unique dining experience, achieving equilibrium, reflecting food from both East and West, complemented with outstanding service in a harmonious and comfortable environment.


We wish you peace and harmony and most of all an enjoyable meal.
