After being a patron of Indo Chine's flagship restaurant in Singapore, the Phuket offering was a big let down. On a Sunday evening in the tourist season we expected the place to be busy or at least populated - maybe even buzzing. It wasn't any of these.
We were the only patrons at the time we arrived, and by the time we had left only six others came into this large restaurant, four of whom left after a short stay. This is not a good sign!
The menu is exciting, as you would expect from Indo Chine, with a selection of dishes from across Asia. However, when the meal came it was disappointingly average. It is safe to say that nothing stood out and a steak dish was best described as burnt morsels of beef.
We had an outdoor table which was a mistake. This restaurant is on the main road out of Patong and Kalim Beach and as such there is a lot of vehicle noise. We could have gone inside but then what intiamcy are you going to find in an empty cavernous restaurant.
We arrived to an empty restaurant and left it being equally empty. Quite clearly, Indo Chine's slick design and culinary promise is lost on Phuket's tourists, or maybe it has not made the grade in a fiercely competitive market.
I wish I had something good to say about this place..... I haven't. The highlght of the evening was the drive back to Patong in a hi tech van with a flashing lights interior and a sound sytem to match.
Our recommendation. Give it a miss.
