Reviews for Taste Restaurant

A lovely little restaurant tucked away in Khandallah. Comfortable surrounds, not too noisy, not too quiet. Very good food presentation. Friendly owners.
Overall, the food was great. On seating, we were given complimentary cucumber and cream cheese amuse-bouches. My entrée of medium-sized scallops in a very light curry served in a papadum worked very well, and was delicious – best scallop dish I’ve had in years. I could have had that as a main. My main was pork, which I found quite average – a little tough and bland. My dessert was a home-made honeycomb icecream stacked with some kind of profiterole material, with lashings of chocolate sauce. Although it wasn’t very honeycombey, it was popular with my table-mates.
There seemed to be only one waiter who wasn’t one of the owners. He seemed to be attentive, well-groomed and professional, without being obtrusive at all. He was also cute.
Although the food and environment were nice, I found the overall price to be about 25% more than I would expect for similar food in a similar place.

Great service, and the food is absolutely phenomenal. It is the best food I have had in Wellington and I have eaten at a lot of restaurants in the city. Really nice owners, and the wait staff are attentive but not intrusive. Will certainly visit again and bring our friends.

We used to dine here regularly but hadn’t been in about 2.5years due to having a child. We decided to go for lunch today (with small child in tow) and had yet another fantastic dining experience. The food, coffee and service is consistently of a high standard – we’ve never experienced a single off day – and they were very flexible and accommodating to our three year old (not really their target audience) by offering to plate her a half potion of anything on the menu. The menu steps a little outside the mainstream lunch/brunch offerings as well, which makes a refreshing change. We will be back!

We have been to Taste several times over the last few years, and are always really impressed with the experience. It is definitely our favourite restaurant, and being local makes it even better. The service is absolutely flawless – friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. The food is delicious. The ambience and decor is relaxed yet classy. if I had one recommendation it would be to dim the lighting a fraction, to create a more private setting. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to those wanting a more ‘special’ dining experience.

We’d heard great things about Taste, so tried it one Saturday morning for brunch. We weren’t disappointed. Service was impeccable and the food absolutely delicious.
Turning up with 3 children in towto what’s quite a stylish place didn’t cause a ripple – we were offered half portions, and in the end a large breakfast was plated between two beautifully. Ingredients fresh, high quality and presentation excellent. Coffee fantastic.
Pricewise, it’s up there certainly. And they could have done with making the blue cheese on toast breakfast a bit more substantial – but it’s quality through and through.
