    We had another amazing dinner at Taxi. Just love everything about this fantastic restaurant. Great service, beautiful view over city & food is outstanding! Everything we ordered had a Wow factor! Standout dish, for me, was sake tuna entree, but everything was YUMMY!

    We went for lunch. One of us had the 4 course taster menu: the crayfish dumplings in broth was beautiful although the broth was a bit too salty, the sake tuna was to die for, the salmon with crispy skin was very nice, the barakunda was not to my liking but that is just a matter of personal taste, it came with scallops which were cooked to perfection. I had the tempura bug tails, first time having it, the tails were perfectly cooked and the mayonnaise it came with was lovely but a bit more batter than we’re used to. As a main I ordered the wagyu dumplings, what a disappointment! Was expecting beautifully tender beef, but it was grainy and dry. To accompany the meal we had tried a couple of wines before settling on a Riesling, was delicious. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable and patient as I know I can be a bit slow at making up my mind, the only reason for not giving 5 for the service was that when paying for the bill it was unclear as to how we were to go about it. The restaurant itself is lovely’s with an open kitchen which always inspires you that hygiene is paramount, was surprised of how quiet they were. All views around the restaurant were pleasant but the best views unfortunately seemed to be for single diners on stools lining one side of the room.

    If the waitress at the pay counter can have the eye contact and smile to the customer than looking annoyed, will make me feel better.

    The food at Taxi Kitchen was excellent. We had the slow cooked lamb shoulder which melted in your mouth, and the kingfish which was delicious. The service was wonderful and staff were very attentive!

    After a year of adventuring around and trying to find dining-experiences that were worth the time and money... I finish the year with one of my most memorable meals for not only the year but for my life. My wife and I had the 4 course meal and it was simply amazing. That coupled with an amazing host made for such a great dining experience at Melbourne. Thank you Taxi Kitchen!

    Fantastic food but they need more staff on. Staff were lovely but we waited half an hour for our table that we had made a booking for, then had to wait ages to get menus and ages to get our table cleared and get dessert. Food was amazing!!

    Served curly flat 2015 warm. When I asked for a cold bottle she said she’d already opened it and she would cool it but I had to buy it. Average service and not what taxi used to be

About the restaurant

Taxi Kitchen..

Taxi Kitchen has a new look, and vibe. One that’s more relaxed, carefree and fresh, appealing to both young and older dining crowds. With an emphasis on share plates (baked whole barramundi or slow roasted lamb shoulder), smaller dishes, (for the pre theatre, concert and football crowd).

Taxi Kitchen offers less fussy, more affordable, accessible food. Dishes to write home about would have to be the candied pork with coconut salad and red chilli dressing and the sesame-scorched oysters. You don’t want to be leave without tasting these two beauties. With one of the best views in Melbourne (almost 360-degree views of the city), Taxi caters to everyone that comes through the Federation Square hub. From tourists to casual diners and everyone in between.
