Proudly serving pan-Asian cuisine of a ridiculously high standard, Taxiboat is a chic spot in the heart of Northcote, one of Melbourne’s foodie hotspots. 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.
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!
Taxiboat was a great experience, the food was lovely and our servers were extremely helpful. I would definitely go back for a meal again sometime.
Fabulous food and service😊 Pad Thai was sensational as were the fish cakes and dim sum. Friendly and effective staff.. take home leftovers possible. Yum
The food is terrific - full of flavours and always consistently high quality. The venue is relaxed but a real buzz from the clientele. Only way to improve would be to allow BYO wine, which is the most expensive part of the meal.
