Overall a very good experience. A cool layout and the view of the kitchen in operation is nice. The food was a bit above ok. The salad could have some more taste. And overall worth the money.

This was my first visit to Taxi since it closed and reopened as Taxi Kitchen. We were disappointed with food and the service. My minute steak was chewy and the waiter warned me of this as he put the plate down. Apparently it's supposed to be chewy so maybe it's better to tell your customers when they order so you... More

First time I have eaten here and will happily go back. Booked for a friend's birthday and we were given a table that looked-down the river. Fortunately the blinds were down otherwise the sun would be right in your eyes, but as soon as the sun went down the blinds opened and it was a great view. The food is... More

Tempura bug entrée is very good, give the sake washed tuna a miss The spatchcock was barely edible the saan and duck were good. At $90 a head for the degustation menu it is poor value. Service was disinterested, and environment was noisy. Not going back

First time we'd tried this restaurant and initially we were impressed by the décor and views out over Fed Square. Staff were welcoming too. First disappointment came when we ordered 2 glasses of Stella beer. The menu clearly says it comes in 430ml servings, but the Stella glasses it was served in clearly showed the 330ml measure line. The price... More

It's been 3 years since I've been to Taxi Kitchen for a meal and things seems to be quite different. Where it was once crisp white table cloths and fine dining, it's now a noisy sticky table top experience. The service was also a little disappointing. Our waitress was distracted and seemed like she had too many tables to cover.... More

Very much enjoyed our meal here. Every dish was delicious. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. The decor is hip. It's located upstairs in a building at the front of federation square. We looked over to all the activity around flinders street station and Southbank.

We went for early weekday dinner (630). Hardly anyone there which was shame as the food is excellent. Yes it's more expensive than I would have liked but we couldnt fault the meal.

For the amount of money we paid for our meals we were not blown away. Steak strips were very tough and very small serving sizes, flavors average. Knowledge of gluten free options was good.
