Authentic Asian Tao Cuisine & Lounge, Autocity, Penang (buffet)

27 of feb, Serene, me, Melissa, Youming and Joen was going to have a surprise dinner for Pui Shie's birthday. She did not know that we are going to have a buffet in Authentic Asian Tao Cuisine & Lounge. We covered her eyes and she sat quietly in the car because we said we are going to bring her for a new hairstyle.

I booked that place few days before and we were giving 10% discount for being early birds. If you arrive before 6.30pm, you can get 10% discount. The buffet cost RM51.75 including tax for discounted price. It is divided into 2 sessions, 5.30pm-8pm and 8pm-10.30pm.
Ya, we arrived Tao and we were welcomed by the nice ambience.
A board writing the informations of the buffet~~ Do make booking on weekend to avoid disappointment.
This is the lounge where you can listen to band performance at nite.
representing Tao?
This is the way heading to interior of the restaurant. nice?
This is one of the photo that I took once I arrived Tao.
Nice place to have your buffet here...comfortable.
Photo taken after the meal. Let's start the buffet. They are serving in All-You-Can-Eat style which means you order the food from the menu unlimitedly and they will serve dishes according to your order. This is the salad bar which is self serving.
Next, the sushi bar. People are grabbing for sushi~~
Wasabi Sari Abalone. Although it was not real abalone, but I still like it~This is the Wakatori Mayo. Chicken cooked with Mayo, I ordered this and I like it very much.
Tempura Mariowase. Fried vege and prawn. Ermm...we do not like the tempura serving here, tasteless...cant bring out the freshness of the prawn. Temaki. 2 California handrolls and Unagi handroll if I am not mistaken? forgot...We shoudnt order this because it makes you full very fast.
Sashimi mariowase. Wah~~I like it, fresh. Worth for the buffet right? As we know, the sashimi more than RM30 with this portion at Japanese restaurant.
Salmon Teriyaki. A must order. Try it, juicy.
Salmon Papaya. Yucks~~ Bad in taste, dunno whether only on that day or what, it was not fresh...my friends feel like vomiting while having that.
Motoyaki scallop. Thumb up for this~~~ spicy and cheesy~~
Miso Soup
Kushi Yaki. The seafood skewer. Not bad.
Jackpot which was ordered by the birthday girl, Puishie. She likes it so much. She do not like sashimi but she can accept this.
Grilled lamb shoulder. Try it if you come here. They grilled nicely and the meat were tender and juicy.
Sushi taken from sushi bar. I do not like they serve those sushi like this because the sushi that stay in sushi bar for long time tend to make the sushi rice hard.
Crabmeat with cheese. Yeah all of us like this because we are cheese lover. We ordered this for 2 times. Sinful cheese can be seen once you bite it.
Chawan Mushi. Steamed egg. Smooth~~ super small in portion and it is good because it will not make you full that fast. Agedashi Tofu. For me, the Tofu was not smooth enough. I tried a better one before.
Can you guess what is this? What is it looks like? It is 3 cup squid. A good appetizer.
Finally. the dessert, ice-cream~~~~Satisfied meal. So full~~we took photo before we leaved. Serene is the photographer, from the left, Joen, me, Youming, Pui Shie and Melissa.
Do visit their website http://www.tao-cuisine.com/ for their menu and call them for reservation. One thing I want to remind you is 100gm food wastage will be charged RM10, so make sure you finish all. Haha..
