Taxi is chic and classy with its funky architectural designs and breath-taking views across the city and Yarra River. It boasts a high-quality and creative Contemporary Australian menu, with Japanese influences. Every dish is a work of art when it hits your table and tastes superb , with all components playing a crucial role on the plate. It would definately be a challenge to choose a favourite!

my favourite dish was probably the salmon and yabbie dish..the dill used in the dressing went very well with the seafood:)
