I travel all over the world so am lucky to have wide experience and now days am so often disappointed, but not here. We had a range of... read more

After reading reviews regarding this restaurant, we were expecting something special. Venue is trendy and bustling, staff friendly and helpful, food disappointing. We started with scallops which were very tiny and overcooked. Crayfish ravioli , pasta was cooked well but filling dry, next we shared the asparagus and scallop risotto, 4 tiny overcooked scallops, on a bed of runny rice,... More

We had a good but not mind blowing meal at Taxi. The staff were friendly and the views over the city were incredible. Overall a good experience although we'd probably try somewhere else before returning.

One of my oldest friends booked this establishment for lunch as our first choice was not open. The staff wear quaint t-shirts with "on duty" emblazoned on the back but to be honest waiting 20 minutes after being seated for the menus and to order a drink we discussed that the staff had popped on the wrong t-shirts and were...

Have been here half a dozen times plus we have referred several groups of friends and neither we or our friends have been disappointed. Situated in our fabulous Federation Square, another one of our favourite locals, location and view are fantastic. We love the environment taxi kitchen has created. Every dish we have tried and shared has been delicious apart... More

Dinned here with group of friends for lunch . Busy and loud but in a good way ! Slow roasted lamb shoulder melted in the mouth. Wide selection on the menu to suit all. If your a visitor to Melbourne be sure to ask for a table with river/city views!

This restaurant never disappoints. Visited several times and the food is always incredible and fresh. Love the fresh asian inspire salads, they are to die for! Treat yourself to dessert aswell - the passionfruit soufflé is mouthwateringly good.

We had a party of 26 and Taxi Kitchen catered perfectly. Whilst the food did take a while to come out, the staff were very prompt with drinks and were extremely accommodating. I had a taste of a few different entrees and they were excellent. The meat I had for main was perfectly cooked and it's difficult to fault this... More

Huddled inside a massive concrete jungle, called the federation square is a canteen like restaur aunt called the Taxi Kitchen. The menu is compact but everything, catering for both veg and non veg, is appealing. We ordered fresh oysters and seared scallops for starters....superb. Followed that with some wag you creations....superb. Supplemented that with some fries and green salad....superb. What... More

Given it was a Friday night, was pleasantly surprised to secure a table the day prior. We were in need of a nice, speedy dinner before a show, and the staff were very helpful. I suppose it helps if you book a 6 pm table. Had a few share plates & then the baked Barramundi. Have to say, it all... More
