Dinner at Indochine is a treat when visiting Saigon (yes, that's the name on the railroad station and on your airline baggage ticket). The dishes are exquisite and there is a terrific selection of wines (mostly from France and notoriously expensive because of taxes). If you can afford it, Indochine is a must-do.

It is reviewed in every single Travel Guide. More hype and it will implode. Maybe we went on an off day for them but it was the worst restaurant with the worst staff we visited in Vietnam only second to a really awful joint in Da Nang. The staff were unhelpful and very unfriendly and the food was average. Great... More

Indochine was nice. They really cater to the tourists (when were were there, there were long tables in the courtyard with European tourists) but we had just had a big day and didn't feel in the mood to deal with anyone in broken English or do the menu guessing game, so this place fit (but normally it wouldn't) We were...

We had dinner here. The food was good and the ambience is very pleasant, with live music. Service was okay. Price of drinks are a bit higher than many places in Vietnam, but much cheaper than in Australia. Vietnam is the 40th country that we have visited over the years, so we have eaten in many restaurants in 40 countries.... More

Lunched here today after a great visit to the War Relics museum. It came highly recommended by our guide but proved to be nothing special. Good portions but pretty routine otherwise, and so something of a disappointment after generally great food throughout the Vietnam leg of our holiday. But then you cannot win them all .....

The garden setting is beautiful and contains lots of interest including a pool and a lovely old car. The staff were attentive, welcoming and efficient. We had the set menu - the food was served at a sensible pace and was nice enough but we certainly had better during the holiday. Nevertheless the restaurant is worth a visit.

We were taken here as part of a private tour and had the set menu which, theoretically, looked reasonably okay, if a bit tourist-oriented. The garden courtyard was quite nice and food arrived promptly. The food, however, was seriously bland and serving sizes were tiny. The food served up to three of us wouldn't even have been enough for two.... More

We had such a great time at Indochine Restaurant. The staff was very nice, making sure we had everything we needed. We felt like being in a busy bistrot in the heart of Paris. The food was tasty and very well presented. They're not lying by calling themselves "authentic vietnamese restaurant". The band was playing international songs with a jazzy... More

As the title says it - the ambience is great let down only by the average food. We had a good mixture of fried rice, spare ribs, fried soft shell crabs, soups, vegetables and banana fritters. Nothing to shout about as we didn't clean all the food off the plates. There's definitely better places out there.

During our honeymoon, in Vietnam, we had lunch in this restaurant, since it was included in one of various tours we did, in Ho Chi Minh. When we arrived we thought that it would be a nice meal, seeing that the restaurant had good appearance and a nice setting. Also, everything seemed clean and tidy. We had a set menu... More
