Tao Cuisine And Lounge @ Auto-City

Recently, hubby & I dining out less frequent as we previously did. Besides the economic reasons, I'm opting for more healthy home cooked meal. I'm currently in the progress of touching up some precious knowledge in nutrition. :) I found it very interesting.

Ok, back to the topic. This is another back-dated post, which was pending since last August. We dropped by Tao for an enjoyable dinner on our way back from SP. We didn't call for reservation, but we were lucky to get a table on the crowded Saturday night.


Tao is a place serving Japanese food buffet style, where you pay a fee to taste all the food that the menu's got to offer. There's no limit to the number of orders that you make. The only limiting factor is the time. :)


Mitoyaki Scallop. We love this very very much. The sweet, sour & slightly spicy sauce is really appetizing. We couldn't stop ourselves to place 2nd and 3rd order. :)


Tako Sunomono. Squid is always my favorite whenever visiting a Japanese restaurant.


Abalone slices in Mayonese.Taste is so so, not sure why they put the colorful bits there.


Teppan Smoked Duck Breast.


Grilled Salmon. Taste good but real small portion. If you are a fish eater you'd like to order more of these.


Golden Fried Dumplings. Nothing special on this.


Kushiyaki...some sort like seafood satay.


Miso Soup, I was wondering why hubby want opt for this. ?? :P Simple miso soup with Japanese taufu and some vege. Taste more like ajinomoto soup.


Tofu...deep fried tofu, but very smooth inside.


Taiwanese Mantis Prawn. It looks so so only, but it's a great finger food.


Tempura Shrimp & Vege. Hubby will not miss to opt for tempura. His favorite dish.

Unlimited order for the first hour. If you still not full, you can go for sushi and fruits.
Buffet dinner for 2 cost at RM110.40, inclusive of 10% service charge and 5% government tax. A little too expensive huh?

If go in a gang then you can get the chance to taste a lot more dishes, then only will feel like "hmm...worth loh!" :)

Food For Tots said...

If the food quality is good, then it is worth the $$. But I am not a fan of buffet as I had bad experience of throwing out. :(

Cariso & J2kfm, also we don't take Sashimi, not worth haha...

mimid3vils, oh izzit? Will drop by your post to figure out if you've posted it.

Food For Tots, oh, sounds bad. I don't usually go for buffet, cuz I can't take much food.

Faye fly, hi you're new here. Welcome. Yes, the scallop is really good. Just the size is quite small.

squall said...

i went there before...i think is this year end when i go bac penang...the food are not bad...

worldwindows said...

Japanese buffet usually expensive. But if I got time it is great provided the food matches my enthusiasm in its quality.

Little Inbox said...

Squall, yes, a lot of variety there.

World Windows, but this one got time limited for unllimited order. Also, one's stomach got limited capacity.

buzzingbee said...

lots of ppl have tried and blogged about this buffet, but I have yet to try it :(
if the food quality is good, then I guess the price is rectified.
But one hour is quite a rush isn't it...considering it's buffet sytle :P
I prefer to slowly eat and enjoy when having buffet *lol*

Little Inbox said...

buzingbee, after one hour, you still can enjoy other sushi stuff, and fruits.
