Price is reasonable, service is good. Food has really diminished in quality. I have been a semi-regular for 42 years. Of late, a group of us retirees have met there ~1/quarter. We have finally moved (some of the group have been resistant to change). I can't identify when the change occurred, but it was quit4e a sudden change. The group is pleased with the change.Like this review?Yes|Flag Abuse

I have been coming here since I was 15 and the food was fantastic but when the original family sold, the food has been going down hill. I should have stayed away when the health department gave them a citation for a dirty kitchen but I didn't.Tonight's food tasted really bad and the only good item was the rice and all they had to do was steam it. \r
Needless to say, they have lost another customer.
Tao Tao is a wonderful place to eat. We have been eatings at Tao Tao's since 1978.....
Awesome Chinese Food.. The best place for birthday parties and family dinners. A lot of many happy memories.
The best chinese food anywhere.... We give it 5-plus stars. Yummy...
I read most of the reviews posted here, the good and the bad ... and I agree with some of both sides. Being an East Coast transplant to the Peninsula, I have excellent food experiences from the restaurants on the East Coast to compare with. Tao Tao, in my opinion, has the best Chinese food in the Bay Area. I have eaten in Chinese restaurants fron San Francisco to Monterey and on both sides of the Bay.

Tao Tao beef has got to be one of my most favorite foods on the planet! If you've never tried it before, you're missing out.

They have a nice bar at Tao Tao's too. The Mai Tais are a favorit... view more
We arrived after the lunch rush was slowing down. The service was very poor. Our host was not friendly. He walked us to our table and just walked away before we had even sat down. We felt like we were imposing on him. Our server acted confused when we ordered and made us feel like we were ordering wrong. Maybe we could have used some help at that point. He just seemed annoyed with us.

I've been going here for 30 years. Always great. Until about 2 years ago. New management? New cook(s)?
All I know is that you never know whether you're going to get the ""good"" Tao Tao or the ""bad"" Tao Tao. And the bad is really pretty bad......
