Find it on the vibrant High Street opposite the famous Art Deco cinema of Westgarth and step into a bohemian setting that radiates one thing: cool. And it’s handy, really – given Taxiboat’s mission to uphold Melbourne’s reputation as the culinary capital of Australia – that all ingredients are fresh and sourced daily to ensure those bold pan-Asian flavours are nailed every time. This is Australian cooking at its best, delivered with service that you will remember.

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!

Exceptional food and decent wine list. Very busy at 7pm. If you want a more intimate experience, go for 8pm. Friendly attentive staff. One more thing....toilets were very clean.

Fantastic Food and service. Warm welcoming ambience. We will be back. My local Thai restaurant has paled into insignificance & I probably won't ever go any where else locally except to Taxiboat.

A very friendly welcome when we arrived, enough time to study the interesting menu before ordering, a delicious meal which arrived within a reasonable time and an efficient and pleasant waiter made our experience at Taxiboat one that we will certainly want to repeat soon.

We have been to TaxiBoat probably 6/8 times - always after going to a movie across the road at the old Westgarth Cinema. It's not just handy though, it's delicious and fairly priced. Always a good menu variety although we keep coming back for their yummy fishcakes and always have the fried rice with another main - try the rockling! Excellent wines by the glass, the staff treat us like family, the owner/chef is an absolute character - we have never walked out of there unhappy. Paul.

My friend and I loved Taxiboat! The staff were friendly and very helpful and also accommodated us as we only had a short time to eat before going to see a movie. The food is so fresh, delicious and tasty! We will back!

Excellent meal with great service. Interesting selection of wines with a very special Spanish Aria sparkling. I would recommend Taxiboat for anyone looking for a mix of Asian Cuisine and a relaxed atmosphere.
