Restaurant TAO TEPPANYKI & MORE is located on the Vistula River, at the footbridge “Bernatka”, in one of the most beautiful and oldest districts in Cracow – Podgórze.
At the rear of a historic building “Under the Lion”, lies a beautiful garden, which can be viewed from the covered and heated terrace / winter garden. In 2014 we decided to expand the restaurant and enlarge her part of the garden, where you can sit and enjoy the delicious food in beautiful green surroundings.
TAO is the first and only restaurant in Krakow, serving TEPPANYAKI – meals prepared in a spectacular way on a special Japanese grill – “Tepan” – whose plate is heated up to 800º C.
Our Chef Allan Zarandin, who gained the knowledge and experience in the best Japanese restaurants around the world, is impressing guests with juggling demonstrations and outbursts of flames accompanied the preparation of dishes.
In the menu of our restaurant you can find Thai and Japanese specialties, sushi, or dim sum which is Asian “tapas”. Different types of Asian dumplings, a rich selection of pasta, soups and interesting entrees will satisfy both hunger and senses … The aroma of Thai basil, coriander, ginger, lemongrass and oriental taste of our meals, will take you into the world of the Far East.
TAO is the perfect place for a quick lunch or dinner during the week, but also a great place for a family dinner during the weekend.
In our restaurant we organize large garden space events, corporate events, communions, weddings, birthdays and chamber concerts.
We organize “Sushi workshops” – sushi eating with chopsticks and Japanese principles of “savoir vivre”. Moreover we organize teppanyaki events for children, where the chef entertains the children with magic tricks, teaches how to eat with chopsticks, while recorded video is the best memento of the great time!
