Indochine serves Asian-inspired cuisine presented with a contemporary yet delicate twist. Only the finest seasonal local ingredients are used, with menus featuring fresh organic produce grown in the greenhouse on the Estate. Flavours are lively, aromatic and robust while maintaining a style of cuisine that's synonymous with vitality, wellness and healthy living. Diners have the choice of enjoying the contemporary interior or an alfresco experience, with wraparound views stretching over the valley below towards the majestic Table Mountain. Hotel guests may enjoy breakfasts in the privacy of their Lodge or at the restaurant, where an indulgent array of dishes await, with gourmet ingredients handpicked from the area - berries from a nearby farm, the region's best charcuterie, organic dairy and decadent pastries - in addition to a selection of beautifully presented hot dishes.

Nestled within the Delaire Graff wine estate, Indochine tickled all the senses. The setting, dotted with art by Anton and Lionel Smit, was stunning. The food was exquisite, the favours pulled together by an alchemist. The wine was up to the standard of the food. The pricing is not shy, but reflects the experience.

We have a very rigours diet and we requested before they opened to cater for our diet and what a way to do so. The food quality here was of a Michelin star restaurant. From the starter all the way to dessert every dish was an experience. We ordered two starters, a main and a dessert and the chef kept... More

We had a wonderful evening at Indochine! The food was delicious! We had the five course menue and the beef. Everything was very delicious and nicely arranged. The service was very good as well as the sommelier. Great views on Stellenbosch! We would definitely come back!

The food is decidedly Asian, so don't go looking for steak and potatoes. If Asian food is something you enjoy, you will rank this at the top of your list! Top quality, delicious and beautifully presented. Loved the soups! Ask for a semi circle banquette table!

I came with a friend, and my parents for lunch. The vineyard is a lovely, very beautiful place. Unfortunately, the service and staff at Indochine was the complete opposite. Starter soups arrived cold and had to be remade. This delayed the next course. 40 minutes after the soups were cleared, still no next course, which was painful because only two... More

We really enjoyed our lunch at Indochine. I suppose the only negative is that by local standards it is quite expensive, but nevertheless did deliver reasonable value for money The service was first class, both friendly and knowledgeable. We asked not to be hurried, and they were happy to oblige Our starters and main courses were perfect, but my green... More

Food was fantastic, seating (curved benches) was worn out and became very uncomfortable after a while.

Indochine is a restaurant at Delaire Graff. There is so much to the whole winery including another restaurant at which we did not dine, however, Indochine did not disappoint. Wonderful flavours of the east, making an eclectic cuisine. Superb service. We loved it and the entire estate.
