More about Taxiboat, Northcote

Outside of their pan-Asian cookbook, the team at Taxiboat has one heck of a recipe to make their Melbourne restaurant a real success story. First, they carefully select a soundtrack, then they serve the freshest Australian local produce that it’s possible to find. After that, they constantly ensure the stylish dining space is kept absolutely spotless, then, lastly, there’s impeccable service that demonstrates warmth, graciousness, efficiency and knowledge. Sound too good to be true? Well, diners of Northcote, it isn’t. You can find this fantastic little eatery on High Street, and we know you’re going to love it.

Settle down in Northcote and begin your dining experience with dim sum – Taxiboat are famous for their Shanghai pork edition – or enjoy some homemade Thai fishcakes. For mains there are Asian favourites as well as refined modern takes, consider mango curry chicken with a touch of vindaloo, or lemongrass satay chicken with a light coconut milk and lime sauce. You’d be a fool to pass on Taxiboat’s yakitori ginger beef, complete with sesame and chilli, but a simple bit of fried tofu with a side of Asian greens will also hit the spot. Melbourne is not short of fantastic Asian eateries, but the pan-Asian cuisine at this Northcote nook deserves to be hunted out and savoured. Reserve a table now!
