  • Review by Sam C on January 11, 2010:

  • I've never eaten a thing at Dao Palate I didn't like. As similar as it is to its sister restaurant Wild Ginger, it isn't Wild Ginger by another name; Dao Palate is slightly cheaper (location, maybe?) and the food is a little bit better.

    Recommended dishes: pineapple fried rice, tofu skin wraps, avocado salad, steamed greens, citrus soy protein, and Malaysian curry stew.

    I've always enjoyed competent service here. Their delivery is fast and brings the right food, so yeah, this place rocks!

  • Mmmmmmmm,their Malaysian curry soy protein was absolutely delicious: tender, very spicy but edibly so, yummy carrots and potatoes. Only drawback: not enough...it was just so good :-)
    I will be returning for this dish and others.

    Nice atmosphere, server a tiny bit rough 'round the edges but it made it less pretentious so that was fine with me. Lovely decor, prompt service. The drink I had: cucumber, apple, (and something else I can't recall) was great as well....large size, perfectly blended and smooth. The vanilla ice-cream had a a bit of a homemade texture which I liked but it could have been sweeter...actually it's probably better that it wasn't.
    Overall, I liked very much!

  • I think that this is restaurant is much more consistent that "Vegetarian Palate". In fact, every meal I've eaten at Tao Palate has been exceptionally good, and beautifully presented. The portions are a little stingy but I could do with eating less. The last time I returned however the portions seemed a bit larger, but I think, also the price boosted a bit, too. Anyway, quality over quantity. It's a very nice place, and completely enjoyable to dine in.

  • Review by BankBank on February 9, 2009:

  • I've you've had Wild Ginger, you've pretty much already eaten at Tao Palate.

    Are you into cutlets of fake meat swimming in savory sauce and cubes of well-executed but soulless deep fried tofu? Do you have an on-again off-again relationship with General Tso? Mayhaps you have a dangerous vegetable oil and iodine deficiency? Then TP is your JOINT!

    I don't know. I mean, I ain't gonna lie, it tasted good. It just isn't exciting, it isn't new. It's derivative. And the stupidest part is that it opened up very close to Vegetarian Palate, which has fairly similar food. These places are the Subways of fake meat Americanized chinese food, popping up 3 to a corner just all over.

    Stuff I ate:
    A5. Deep Fried Tofu in tempura sauce - pretty much not the jam, 'cept for some seaweed
    M23. Crispy Soy Protein with savory tomato sauce over kale - sorta the jam. enough food for 3. Can I has kale??

  • Review by Smurfo on January 10, 2009:

  • As a Park Slope resident and a vegetarian, I eagerly hope Dao Palate will succeed. What I have seen up to now however hasn't been altogether encouraging. The first two times I ate there the food was passable enough, though perhaps not out of this world. But tonight, I went back with a friend and had a bad experience. One appetizer, avocado, yam and mango with soy didn't really come together as a dish. The Bi Bim Bap meanwhile was totally inedible. On the plus side, this place has a quiet atmosphere which I appreciate. Plus, I got a $5 free coupon for the grand opening, which slightly softened the blow of the bi bim bap. I hope this place improves, may stay away for awhile in hope that it gets into shape.

  • Although I can't figure out if their name is Tao Palate or Dao Palate and even if I could I'm not quite sure why they are not just called Wild Ginger since it seems like the same menu... but anyway...

    This place is awesome!

    I get takeout from them a lot and they get the food to me super quick and fresh.

    The papaya salad is super, as is just about everything I've had there.

    High quality food that brings a smile to my good food lovin' vegan face.

  • Review by janet on December 20, 2008:

  • There's a vegan restaurant graveyard in part because promotion is so poor. What other explanation for this place being a short walk from my home, and my only learning of it more than three months after it opened, despite being in multiple v*n groups, from a mass mailing?

    We ordered for delivery on a dark and stormy night. The order-taker told me what our total would be (a first for any delivery place I've ordered from!) and the food came faster than they said it would. The pumpkin soup was amazing, as were the sweet citrus soy protein with kale and almonds and the vegi seafood and vegetables in white sauce, even if the "seafood" was a little creepy in its seafoodness.

    I've not rated "atmosphere" because I've only had delivery.

  • Review by Jdvjess on September 28, 2008:

  • I love this place. with the same menu as Wild Ginger Brooklyn and arguably an even nicer atmosphere I now have the comfort of a more upscale alternative to Vegetarian Palate which is right down the block. I brought my aunt, who is not at all vegetarian and often wary of trying new foods, to the restaurant for a birthday dinner. She absolutely loved it. The food was great.We had samosas for appetizers and shared two main entrees and topped it off with a pumpkin cheesecake for all under $50 w/tip. She was impressed with the presentation of the food and the decor of the restaurant and I was really happy that she was able to really sample some great vegan food without feeling in the least uncomfortable. I wish I was around during the day for the lunch specials!

  • Review by debya on August 21, 2008:

  • Tod wrote a great review, so I'll leave it at this:

    Appetizers (scallion pancakes with mango & yam and taro tempura) were awesome. Entrees (pineapple fried rice & soy cutlet sizzling platter) were awesome. Dessert (mango lassi & pumpkin cheesecake) were better than awesome.

    Staff were super friendly and attentive.

    In sum: I'm never moving.

  • Review by todemko on August 20, 2008:

  • I tried this place as soon as they first opened, before they even finished obtaining their liquor license (which they'd get a few days later). I tried innocuous sounding appetizers (crispy soy in plum sauce), slightly more daring main courses (a mango soy dish and a citrus soy dish), and a better-be-good dessert (chocolate soy cheese cake). And I have to say, absolutely everything was amazingly good. Even the crispy soy appetizers, which many places tend to gloss over in the taste department, were absolutely eye-widening.

    The dessert was simply an explosion of happiness-inducing flavor (the cake was complete with the hard-cookie-crumb-like bottom layer between ridiculously dense chocolate soy cheese). And the main courses were each delicious to a surprising degree. The kitchen had a mix-up and I ended up getting a faux-beef looking dish instead of the the citrus soy, but it looked so good that when they realized the mix-up and offered to take the dish back, I told them I'd deal with this new dish somehow and finished it in a couple minutes.

    The staff also apologized for the lack of liquor license, and thankfully turned a blind eye when I spiked my own drink even though they weren't allowed to be byob. Or maybe I'm just sneaky. The waiters were generally quite attentive and fessed up right away (offering various solutions) about anything they weren't up to speed with yet on their opening week.

    The only detraction from the experience there was the fact that, although the place is impressively decorated, they had sawed-off coral nailed to the walls. I looked closely and they seemed real, which made me frown. Other than that, everything about the place pleased me greatly.
