One of the best in WLG

A lovely little restaurant tucked away in Khandallah. Comfortable surrounds, not too noisy, not too quiet. Very good food presentation. Friendly owners. Overall, the food was great.

A lovely little restaurant tucked away in Khandallah. Comfortable surrounds, not too noisy, not too quiet. Very good food presentation. Friendly owners. Overall, the food was great. On seating, we were given complimentary cucumber and cream cheese amuse-bouches. My entrée of medium-sized scallops in a very light curry served in a papadum worked very well, and was delicious - best... More

The food was tasty and presented well but quite dear. I was with a group of twelve at a long table against the wall. It was hard for the people in the middle to get out if needed. There were white serviettes and a white table cloth on the table but this tablecloth was covered with white newsprint. I suppose... More

This place is amazing. I have been driving or walking past it for about a year now and never bothered to come inside, as it is right across the street from my regular pub. However - we had a spontaneous night out and decided to give it a go. From the very first moment, as the staff greets you inside,... More

We arrived at Taste expecting it to be pleasant and came away delighted at our new find. Fantastic service always starts things well and this was no exception but the food is the star of the show. Taste is all about simple, delicious, classically prepared dishes that will have you enjoying 3 courses when we really only wanted one. The... More

A suburban dining experience that offers consistently high quality. Pleasant, if slightly dated décor, in a restaurant that is part of the Khandallah Village. One of the delights is that it is not noisey, the dining area being divided into two main parts. The menu is not extensive but probably covers most tastes and therefore is adequate. Several dishes are... More

Was down to the weekend and checking out the old haunts with my wife and came across this place. It was brilliant. Even though we were early and the second couple in, the place was welcoming and the ambience relaxing. The service was personal and the food devine. All in all a little gem. Hope it does well so we... More

All we can say is: Excellent! Good food, great atmosphere, cool service. A little on the pricy side but worth every cent!

Staying in the area prior to catching the ferry we did not want to drive into the city and risk getting lost, we opted to climb the hill into the suburbs for our meal. Fortunately we were able to get a table and even managed to get the window seat. The reception was very friendly and the food choice was... More

We've been eating here for years, and never had a bad experience yet. The service, coffee and good is consistently excellent, and it's great to find a menu that isn't your standard Eggs Benedict and big breakfast fare.

My wife and I celebrated our Wedding Anniversary with a beautiful meal at Taste last weekend. We have been going to this restaurant for years and are never disappointed. We were seated at their best table for two which is in the corner by the window. Their menu seldom changes so you can always rely on your favourite dishes being... More
