Discover Tao Yuan 

The cuisine of Tao Yuan is guided by fresh ingredients that are available locally, infused with Asian flavors and a mixture of modern cooking techniques, to produce food that is unique, and that we hope you will find delicious.  Flavors vary from upscale versions of Asian street food, to the chef's signature pan seared duck breast with Satsuma, celeriac, galangal and macadamia nut cream; along with a variety of wines, beers, and signature cocktails, all served on small plates to allow each diner to sample several courses in a single meal.
