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

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
