I don't often give 5 stars but this was absolutely worth it. Portion sizes were spot on, and the flavours were superb. The hospitality was just right as was the timing. We had pate and eel mousse and the spinach pea and mint soup starters...More

Taste is reliably excellent every time we go. A relaxed atmosphere envelopes you as soon as you walk in, and David and Gary make you feel very welcome. The menu is brilliant - tasty comfort food at its best!

A great place, awesome food, especially desserts. Attention to details. We first came to this place for dessert by chance, for my belated birthday. And have been going there repeatedly for special occassions.

Consistently good, Taste is a great "local" for us in the Khandallah village. Uncomplicated but classy food, done well...every time! Worth a trip to the burbs.

We have been to Taste quite a few times in the last few years. We always have really good food and the service is also always great. It is normally busy but you don't have to wait that long for your meals.

This place is always good. The menu doesn't appear to have ever changed which means you know what you are about to have served. The service is always good and the food tasty. You must book as this is a small restaurant.

A modified old house that contains a modern if conservative restaurant. It serves excellent but not exotic food which is cooked to near perfection and the wines are good. If you want a really good night out with good food and service, then make a...More
