About the Restaurant

Tao offers an authentic northern Chinese experience right in the heart of Toronto.

The difficult growing seasons in China’s north, which is marked by cold winters and blistering hot summers, means that residents have to make use of limited ingredients to produce hearty meals. Foods from the region emphasize the use of herbs and spices in their staples of rice, noodles and dumplings.

Tao offers up a menu not only representative of the cuisine of that region, but supplemented by other Chinese favourites, like sweet and sour chicken, and even the odd Thai dish thrown in for good measure.
