Toorak Road is one of the main dining drags in Melbourne – befitting one of the most affluent and desirable areas of the city – and those choosing the spend their time and dollars on the many restaurants of South Yarra could do a lot worse than heading over to Tao Dumplings. They’re located right on the main strip, along from South Yarra train station, and they’re proud to offer some of the best Chinese in Melbourne, with a menu that boasts steamed dumplings, prawn shu mai, pork buns and shredded beef. The menu is simple, but what they do, they do well, and great Chinese cooking doesn’t require over-complication: hearty, traditional-style dumplings, steamed to perfection and served at the right price. Pay them a visit along Toorak Road and you’ll be bowled over immediately: just don’t expect to be the only people there. They get busy on occasion, so ensure that you get your table by booking online before you make the trip to South Yarra.
Great food, good atmosphere , decent service, more than dumplings but everything was very tasty. Service was friendly and responsive if a little devoid of initiative (it’s easier to drink if you have a glass!). Very reasonably priced. Recommended with enthusiasm.
My partner and I eat at Tao’s a lot and when I took my family there they were blown away! Food is fantastic and well priced, restaurant is amazing and the staff are so friendly. Couldn’t recommend them more. They are my go to Asian restaurant in South Yarra
Great service and amazing food, fast service and clean restaurant. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Will definitely come back to eat again. Five stars
The food was great, ambiance was excellent both combined to offset somewhat initial slow service. When the food started to come the delivery was fast, efficient and friendly.
Exceptional service and the staff were very friendly. We were running late for our booking, but they were very accomodating. Every dish we ordered was fabulous and very reasonably priced. (We ordered 11 dishes) would highly recommend Tao Dumplings in Sth Yarra and will definitely be a repeat customer.
I went to the wrong venue. This review is for camberwell. The restaurant was very busy and they accommodated my friend and I. The food was good but the service was slightly slow. This is an important factor for a lunch break in a working day. However, I would go back. This is a place I would recommend
Absolutely delicious! Best dumplings on the south side! Service is fantastic, staff are very friendly and attentive. We have never been disappointed, you'll not regret your decision! And the UBER eats too!
Food excellent, service friendly. This is a fairly new South Yarra gem, being a party of we tried a good selection of the menu and really couldn't fault any of the dishes.
Great ambience, very friendly and attentive staff, exceptional food with a huge amount of choices, very reasonably priced. We were surprised at how good it was and will return soon.
Food was fantastic! Service a bit slow and not available very often. Even though we booked online for 17:30, when we arrived our booking was set for 19:00. Have to say reasonably priced, fantastic food for any type of group, single diners or couples.
