Exceptional meal

I recently moved to this area and found it as we were driving by. It would have been quite difficult for the restaurant to cater for us as we have a 3 year old and a 4 month old however this was no trouble for the restaurant and we were treated incredibly well.

One of those restaurants that you'd like to try everything on the menu. Fish, chicken or beef you name it! Desserts are phenomenal and you'd be a fool not to smash one down! You wont leave disappointed.

Went here for my daughter's 15th birthday. Lovely night! Great wine list. The girls enjoyed the food. Meat and fish always succulent. Nice ambience, and comfortably warm inside, which we appreciated the night we went as the weather was freezing. Will be returning!

This is a comfortable reliable place with varying standards of food. The scallops were beautifully cooked but we're swimming for their lives in a sea of curry sauce. The pork fillet was over cooked and dry in a fruit sauce but also with some more of the curry sauce lurking around the edge of the plate. The dessert of baked... More

This is a local family restaurant in Khandallah set in a beautiful building. The prices are a little on the high side, but the restaurant is cosy, quiet, with an older clientele rather than family, and was full on the Saturday night that we visited. The food was very nice, but the mains took quite some time to arrive. My... More

Its been quite a while since we last visited Taste and felt it was time to return. It has been one of our favourite restaurants over many years and it is local. Upon arriving mine hosts David and Gary made us very welcome . The menu as we found was unchanged in fact I don't think it has changed since... More

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
