Tao Li Chinese Restaurant in Ho Chi Minh Vietnam
Tao Li Restaurant has opened in town, not with the typical ancient-like appearance of bare-brick walls and tile roofs as seen on many buildings around town, but rather with a modern look in harmony with the developing urban area in the city’s District 7.
The restaurant is the latest among luxury eateries set up by Khaisilk Corporation in the city, providing more options for gourmets in town who are searching for a restaurant where they can take business partners, friends or families, depending on the occasion.
Tao Li is quite different from its sister-restaurant, Ming Dynasty, which is located a few blocks nearby. Ming Dynasty has a closed-in design, protecting it from the noise and dust of the streets. The approach to the restaurant is through a wooden gate and the atmosphere is quiet and calm. Customers can enjoy their meal with partners in private deluxe rooms.
On the other hand, the Tao Li Restaurant is bursting with modern life, with an open-plan architectural concept making it accessible and convenient for local residents and diners who want to chat about business with their partners. One can stop for breakfast in the morning on the way to work, or come for supper before going home.
Located on the ground floor of a building called Grand View, Tao Li Restaurant is designed with two sections. Those who enjoy the open-air can choose to sit in the spacious terrace outside for breakfast or a cup of coffee in the morning or in the afternoon. Although it is rather close to a large road, it is still quiet owing to the fact that there are fewer residents and vehicles traveling on the road.
Decorated in Chinese style, the indoor yellowish lighting casts a soft light upon dark brown tables and chairs, making the restaurant cozy. The indoor section is separated into areas for groups of people as well as for private diners. Chinese expatriates will feel at home among lanterns hung here and there around the restaurant.
Tao Li Restaurant offers an extensive menu of primarily, although not exclusively, Chinese food. Chinese food lovers can savor their favorite dishes prepared from chicken, duck, and seafood, or enjoy a dinner with fried rice prepared with Chinese ingredients. In addition, Dim Sum is a traditional dish that gourmets should not miss when tasting the Chinese food there.
Prices start from VND25,000 and vary according to each dish.
