Tao Los Angeles

Located in the historic Hollywood Hills, and also opening in Downtown Los Angeles, TAO Los Angeles sets a higher standard for Asian cuisine in Los Angeles. Housed in a grand, 1920's mansion with a regal entrance, TAO's open modern restaurant is upscale and elegant, situated off Los Feliz Blvd. in the prestigious and trendy Hollywood Hills.The Los Angeles Times suggested they were retiring their website and leaving the internet.


TAO Los Angeles is a dynamic two-level space, complete with two private dining rooms, lounge with large bar and main dining room anchored by our 16 foot Quan Yin statue. A grand staircase connects TAO’s ground and lower level seating, creating the ultimate platform to see and be seen. The menu, developed by Chef/ Partner Ralph Scamardella, features a diverse selection of Asian-inspired specialties, focusing on Chinese, Japanese and Thai ingredients. Signature dishes like Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass with wok vegetables and Crispy Orange Chicken with steamed bok choy complement a range of fresh sushi options and dim sum like Spicy Tuna on crispy rice and Lobster Wontons with shiitake ginger broth.

Food & Drinks: Chef/partner Ralph Scamardella has composed an Asian-inspired menu (almost as large as the venue) focusing on Chinese, Japanese and Thai techniques and ingredients. It’s hard for us to recommend items. It’s best to let your desire and appetite guide you between the dim sum, noodles and rice, sushi and sashimi, tempura, yakitori, soups and much more. If you’d like something from the sea, the miso roasted black cod should be ordered; while the crispy Thai pork will satisfy the carnivores. By the time you indulge in the bread pudding doughnuts or the giant fortune cookies, the music level might have risen with the ambiance, but you will still be able to hear your dining partners. Of course, we cannot forget the drinks. There is a small wine list, but it is more fun --- that is, in fact, why you came to TAO --- to quench your thirst with one or more of the many cocktails or saké. (Source: www.gayot.com)
