Excellent

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... read 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

Is it something about Khandallah and not being bothered to head into the city to dine ? Or is it just being easily satisfied, or a willingness to accept or even crave for the same old menu ? Nothing ever seems to change. If you are contemplating dining at Taste just be weary and be sure of what you expect... More

Both waiters are delightful. They made my family feel welcome. Out with Granddad visiting us from Britain we are eating out every third night at the minute. Excellent wine and atmosphere, but where is the art? Not a picture in sight - bare walls :-( Our young children were served fish and chips. Great. Except they were frozen chips. Really?... More

This was our first visit to Taste, in passing, as we tried to book for an evening meal the same day (and quite rightly were told they were full - always a good sign in my book!). So we stayed for a spot of lunch and it was delightful! The service was excellent, the food tasty, plentiful, well-presented, plus it... More

My wife and I have been a regular dinners (average once a week) at Taste for over ten years and in writing this review, it needs to be taken into account that (a), many years ago we operated a licensed restaurant facility for over 10 years and (b), we've dined in many of the more exclusive restaurants (Michelin star rated)...
