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!
Lovely atmosphere, excellent service and amazing food. Each meal had so many layers of flavour. Extremely impressed and plan to return many times again as a regular favourite restaurant and will highly recommend to my family and friends.
The food was excellent, my Rockling and Sake sauce on a Bok Choy bas was to die for. The wine was very reasonable which is always a lovely surprise for fully licenced restaurants. And the waiter who attended to us all night was an absolutely delightful professional (happy, friendly, not pushy but attentive). What more could eight people want for a birthday dinner?
Spoilt for choice at this new found restaurant. Delicious food with many choices that covered all tastes. Lovely attentive staff. Definitely be back here again
