    It was good just one comment… we went on a Sunday night and it wasn’t that busy but the waitress brought a plastic cup for my husband to drink hot tea in. So my husband inquired I really need a ceramic tea cup. She said they were out of tea cups. (Weird) so we suggested a soup bowl. So we are at this restaurant. With luckily our children and their spouses and my husband was drinking about of a soup bowl.

    Our waiter Brendan V. was so horrible to us. He continuously gave us attitude, walking away from us when we were talking to him - scoffing at us because he got our receipts wrong. We waited over 30 mins for our checks because He was too busy talking to other customers after I got his attention and stated we were ready for our checks. The food was good, but this service makes me never want to come back.

    Delicious lovely but odd….. wanted to enjoy longer but restaurant had emptied and we were the only table. Employees were restless …. Could have stayed for another round of drinks✅ We were uncomfortable so checked out. No sooner did the doors close and all the lights went out and doors were locked!

    First time back after COVID. Food was good although menu was shorter and no specials. Dishes were not ever cleared from table when finished so we were sitting chatting with all the mess for a while. Server was very eager and attentive. Parking and getting there a total nightmare. Really made the trip not worth it to pay $18 for reduced parking at Whole Foods....

    The half lobster tasted horrible but the rice was good. My wife got the first pasta dish on the menu and it had an after taste of dirty dish water. She didn’t even eat it. Cocktails were good. Spent over one hundred dollars there last night. Needless to say, it was our first and last time there.

    What a delicious break from the "normal restaurant food" in Nashville! If you love Asian food, you will ADORE Tansuo. Our food was delicious and the presentation was unbelievably artistic. Too bad we didn't take pictures, because we ate EVERY delicious morsel. Food was delivered in a timely fashion, and cocktails and wine were on point. Our service was just the right amount and the server kindly recognized our son's 18th birthday. Thank you, Tansuo for a fun, festive night out!

    The restaurant, drinks, and staff were amazing as always but this time I was disappointed with my meal. The side were great but when it came to the Nashville hott lo mein, it looked and tasted very different from what I had grown to expect since I order the same thing everytime I go. That disappointment is the only reason for the lower rating because otherwise everything was amazing.

    Food was generally good. Chow ,Ein with shrimp was flavorless and overcooked. Generals chicken sauce was perfect. Seemed like the siracha sauce on the chicken pot stickers had catsup mixed in. Not ideal.

    Food was very bad. We ordered dry aged steak and it was awful. They have added sesame oil which spoil the steak with bad taste. I regret ordering this dish. Fried rice was ok and shrimp Rangoon was bad as well , it had a spoil taste. My wife got sick today after eating this. I think the butter or cream they use inside the Rangoon had something off which gave that awful taste. Oil Dumplings was salty. Service was great , no complaints!!! Place is beautiful 👍. They need to improve their food 🥘cocktails were nice 👍.

    The restaurant was lovely, but the food was unimpressive. The General Tao’s chicken was tough & chewy & impossible to cut with a fork- no knife was provided. No veggie included with the dish for $28.

    Unfortunately I did not enjoy the food. The ambiance and the staff were very nice and tried to make it right. The lobster and the beef tasted spoiled. The manager was polite about the food, but instead of offering my meal for free, I was charged.

    Tansuo has been my favorite restaurant in Middle Tennessee since it opened. But the pandemic has taken a big toll on it. The food is still very good, but the menu has gotten a little stale and the service has dropped back from terrific to average. I hope it makes it back to pre-pandemic levels. Right now, it’s nowhere near that lofty status. And it truly hurts my heart to write this.

    Had a wonderful dinner. Everything we ate was delicious. The service was top-notch. The vibe was very subdued in a pleasant way. A lot of places in Nashville are very over the top loud. It was nice to be able to have a conversation without shouting to be heard. Definitely coming back the next time I am in Nashville.

    Excellent food and service! Interior could use some attention. I noticed a split vinyl seat and dust thick enough to be visible on two hanging objects that looked like disco balls? Will definitely return again and hope that these small details are corrected.
