“Just as good as the last time!”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

We went to Indochine last Friday for dinner. We last visited six years ago and it was as fab as ever. It's a very popular restaurant (with many more locals than tourists which is always a good sign) and rightly so as the Vietnamese cuisine is delicious - the spring rolls took me right back to Hanoi, and the bouillabaisse was fantastic, with a very generous serving of jumbo shrimp, scallops etc in an Asian sauce. We had just arrived in NYC having spent the previous 12 hours travelling from Scotland so the jet lag kicked in and we didn't stay for dessert, but they looked delicious too! We were however able to sample a cocktail or too! The staff are as attractive as ever, and are both efficient and polite. The front of house manager sets the tone just right. All in a lovely dining experience. Looking forward to going back on our next trip

the food is fabulous .. staff friendly and attentive in spite of it being so busy .. it's a great dining option if going to the Public Theater .. it is more quiet before shows and positively bustling late-night

“Too loud!”
Reviewed 25 December 2013 via mobile

Although this is a super famous restaurant and it's been here for more than one decade. I've found the food good, not excelent, the service was precise for that kind of establishment, even though they have the annoying tendency to refold your napkin every time someone goes to the bathroom. The crowd was vibrant, a little weird, which is ok, but way too loud!!!! I'm not sure i would go back.

A great restaurant, Indochine is apparently still one of the best restaurants in NY. The service was smooth and elegant. The host shaked my hand upon arrival. The girls working were mesmerizingly pretty. The wines by the glass make it uncomplicated. The chilean sea bass was one of the most exquisite things i have tried in my life!

“after 25 years how can Indochine still be this good?”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

Indochine used to be the star hangout in New York and you can tell it still has a stellar following by the authors of tis 35th anniversary book. The crowd tends to be a little older now but the food is really really good and the service is sans attitude..always a plus in an institution like this......the wines by the glass are ok....better to go by the bottle....order a few mains to share then a main course each. Tel the Maitre d' if you are not going to the theatre and have plenty of time. And we did a bit of star spotting but best you go there.....
