A Sydney taxi driver will fight accusations he indecently assaulted a female passenger during a late-night journey last month.

Mian Amer Mehboob, 45, was charged with assaulting and indecently assaulting a 25-year-old woman who got into his taxi late on December 16.

Police said the woman left a licensed premises in the Sydney CBD about 11.45pm and took Mehboob's taxi to Leichhardt.

It's alleged the taxi driver indecently assaulted her a number of times during the trip and once in Leichhardt, tried to stop her leaving the cab.

Mehboob appeared in the Downing Centre Local Court on Friday, and his lawyer indicated the taxi driver was pleading not guilty to both the assault and the indecent assault charges.

Mehboob, who is on bail, was excused from having to appear in court when the case returns on February 24.
