    My friend and I went there for a catch up on the recommendation from another friend. This is a licenced Asian inspired eatery with lots of options for both meat eaters and vegetarians, it is reasonably priced and IT IS DELICIOUS!! The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive and it felt like they could not do enough for us. We stayed until they were closing, but we didn't feel hurried out and they offered us the choice of a glass container (about $5) or a plastic container ($1) to take the leftover food. The glass container you can bring back to use if you are getting take away. I cannot rate this place highly enough.

    We dined at Taxiboat and it was amazing. The ambiance and energy was relaxing and cosy. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. The green curry was hearty and full of flavour.

    The food was ok, the venue was quite loud and just had constant noise. We never received our 30% discount from fork either. Overall it was a little disappointing

    Taxiboat has terrific food, lovely staff and a good atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal (Pad Thai & rockling) and would be happy to come again.

    We were welcomed and served by warm and friendly staff. Great variety on both the wine and food menus. The atmosphere is lovely, where the restaurant isn’t loud and the decor is just beautiful. The food was amazing. Myself and my accompanying diners thoroughly enjoyed all of our choices from the entrees of spring rolls and pork buns to our mains that consisted of Kung pao chicken, Mongolian beef, and calamari. Couldn’t fault anything. Would come back in a heartbeat!

    Yum! Excellent! This was my first time to Taxi Boat and it will not be my last! The food was sensational, lovely wine and excellent service. Can't wait to go back soon and try lots of other things on the menu. Just wish they were BYO, that would be perfect :-)

    Great atmosphere in a nicely fitted out interior, busy and lively on a Tuesday night. Fast service from warm attentive staff. Well executed Asian classics that used lots of fresh herbs and veggies and full of complex flavours. Excellent price point absolutely loved it. All your favourite Asian dishes will be found here.

    My booking through the fork never came through to the restaurant,so when we arrived they were fully booked and no table available in the main dining area. I had booked this over a week ago, got the confirmation and even spoke to the owner. My purpose to visit this place was to check it out as a possible venue for my birthday dinner in a few months. The food was beautiful, but the place a little bit dirty, squashy and then we got placed in the private area upstairs (you walk up a flight of stairs that are very narrow and dangerous). Understandably we got this room because thats all that was available, but it was dirty, cold, and lacked atmosphere. Thus I will not be using this place for my birthday dinner. AND IT IS NOT BYO........we got charged $10 per bottle because we had already opened it. I found this bad form, considering we didn't have a table when we arrived and we got a room that was not nice at all.

    Thank you for your positive review on food and service. Recently we had our annual health inspection carried by the Darebin City Council and we were pleased to receive an outstanding health report for the restaurant. Thank you for your feedback regarding our function room upstairs. Yes the stairs were a little steep. We have taken a action plan to address your concerns. We had a mixup with your reservation and we apologise for error.

    The service can be a bit hit and miss at Taxiboat but the food is always great. It's a really nice atmosphere in the restaurant aside from the rather bright lighting in the front part of the restaurant. Great place to dine before seeing a movie at the Westgarth.

    Taxiboat

    Service is very important for a restaurant as this defines a restaurant. It was a very busy weekend (no excuses) and training a new team is alway challenging. We have a new menu board in the front, we will turn the the brightness down today. Thank you for your feedback, I will pass your review to the team.

    My second visit to this place, good food... service can be a bit better.....but on expensive side for portions served... chicken green curry lacked chicken and was overpowered by too much eggplant...
