About Us

Proudly serving Pan-Asian fusion 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.

“Another successful experience”

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.
