I am going to write this in The Gutter Food of Fail Uncensored style.
Ok, so me and my friend lap cheong go to tao to celebrate lap cheong’s birthday. Both of us starved for 2 months to save money because we want to eat something expensive. So we choose Tao authentic asian cuisine the all you can eat buffet. Lucky we made reservation, if not we got no place to sit, we have to go back Kepong eat chili pan mee, so if you want to visit tao, you have to be smart like us, call and make reservation.
So we starved for the day and go to Tao to eat until they cry.
The lighting in my place is very bad, most of the time i also don’t know what i am eating. You see the picture you know already how bad is the lighting.
Tao buffet can order from menu and the waitress will help you to take order and send the food to your table. So you don’t have to go war with the aunties in the food bar.
Eat buffet how can not eat oyster. No eat oyster in the buffet means you lose money, we don’t want to lose money so we take oyster. Oyster is not – not fresh but is not fresh also, is somewhere is the middle of becoming not fresh. We have buddha heart so we try to help them eat as much as we can.
We had this mixed sashimi plate because we come here for the sashimi. But me and lapcheong feel that we are more oily than the sashimi. Salmon sashimi is dry, shime saba is a bit salty but white tuna and maguro is nice just the slice is too thin.
How can we no order unagi, unagi is a must order in japanese style restaurant. But tao unagi is like auntie cook with sweet soy sauce only. The sauce is too sweet and we barely can taste the unagi.We need some vege so we had this butter mushrooms. This butter mushrooms took half an hour to cook. The chef really use a lot of butter to cook the mushroom so is very butter mushrooms.
We had many more other dishes too. But we suspects the chef is ABC sweet sauce lover, he likes to make every things sweet, the grill squids, yakitori and other teriyaki dishes were as sweet as me. The softshell crab is not good, the crab is oily and cold but we still eat it because we don’t want to waste food and let people curse. Sake hamaguri is stir fried clams with japanese wine but the chef want to save water to play ice bucket challenge so he didn’t clean griddle after he done cooking with ABC sweet sauces dishes. So the japanese wine taste a bit like ABC sweet sauce too. But is the clams is fresh and tasty.
The chawanmushi is good. Grill prawn is sweet and fresh but not the sweetness from ABC sweet sauce, is the sweetness from the prawn. Grill shitake is soft and tasty too.
They have peach tea, japanese green tea and ribena for you to choose. We like peach so we took peach tea, but peach tea is too sweet to go with the sweet dishes so we have to take the japanese green tea, lucky they save some sugar from japanese green tea if not me and lap cheong have to take the orange from the fruits bar to squeeze the juice to drink already. Lap cheong is a ribena lover so he order the ribena to drink but he got angry because he said is not ribena, how can a ribena not a ribena, lap cheong said this ribena is not the authentic ribena this is cheap cheap sunkist or sunkiss or other grape flavor concentrate pretend to be ribena, lucky i didn’t take the ribena because it was very sweet too.
From 8:30pm we eat until 11pm, they have variety of foods for you to choose and eat. The waitress and waiter is friendly and nice. The environment is not bad and the floor is clean.
We went on Saturday night, 8:30pm section. Total damaged is Rm62 per person + 16% taxes.
