The menu choice was really good with a nice combination of meat and fish with varying flavours and for the blokes nice puds!! Good... read more

We walked into this fine establishment at 8.15pm on a Friday night without a reservation to a virtually full house and were greeted by an exceptional staff member who asked us to be patient while he found an available seat for us. He did within a minute or two and we were placed alongside the windows overlooking the Yarra and... More

Amazing food, we had the pre theater three course meal we were amazed how great the food looked and tasted. We eat out a lot in the cbd and this resturant did certainly exceed our expectations, the view was lovely and the staff were all very helpful. We will certainly go back there again soon. We both can not wait.

Overlooking the Yarra and Arts Precinct, servicing food are outstanding with an Asian fusion twist. Late lunch timing will get a great table!

Service way over the top and quite slow - even when less than half full. Strange menu items. Strange people and atmosphere. Not our scene at all.

We found this restaurant via our hotel concierge an was he right. It's not the cheapest place to eat but is it worth it? defenitly Yes! Lots of flavours persented in an original display on your plate. My salmon with lemongrass was a surprise. what an good combination. If you're in for something special, this is the place to be!

I have been to Taxi numerous times and have never been disappointed. Food and service have always been 5 star and what a great view to go with it! Most recently I had the Sake Tuna and Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder and they were both amazing, in saying that I haven't had a dish yet at Taxi I didn't enjoy!... More

This was our first time at the new incarnation of Taxi (it recently changed from Taxi Dining Room to Taxi Kitchen), but we had been to the old version several times and loved it. Unfortunately, this experience came nowhere near previous visits. First the good: it still has the same great views and a nice ambience, and our appetisers were... More

Having recently returned to Melbourne, this was my first much anticipated return visit to Taxi. For me, a significant part of the Taxi Kitchen experience is the view over the river and the Arts Centre. I was assured on making the reservation one was available and I would get it. The very rude and pretentious manager opted to jam us... More

Three of us decided that instead of having traditional entre and main that we couldn't go past the entres so we had a long lunch of every entre on the menu. The only one that didn't blow our socks off was The oysters, which were beautiful but could have had a 'wow factor' every other entre was full of the... More
