Indochine is a New York classic, and we had an exceptional pre-theater dinner. Across the street from The Public Theater, the location can’t be beat for performances at The Public. And the staff is very conscious of the pre-theater requirements: efficient but not rushed service. The pre-theater dinner at $35 was excellent – perhaps one of the best. There were... More

I'm from the midwest, but that doesn't mean I'm easily impressed. My cousin thought I'd like this place and it was fabulous. We were greeted by four fashion models, one more beautiful than the next…. We had reservations and were seated in a cozy spot. I was facing the back but the mirrors were so well placed, I could see... More

Great atmosphere plus good drinks and food, pretty much guarantees a great night. Indochine checks all the boxes. Try the sizzling beef, you won't be disappointed.

It could have been any year from 1965 until 2015 at Indochine last night... seriously the hostess looked like a cross between Naomi Campbell and Grace Jones and the palm leaf wallpaper reminded me of something from my grandparents home in Florida. Loud in a fun way, boisterious in the best sense of the word, service up the wazoo and... More

Indochine is a "landmark" restaurant of our beloved New York City. Serving the most delicious Vietnamese food in an unique ambience, filled with exotic flower arrangements and signature picturesque banana leaf wallpaper. The staff is extremely well dressed, good looking + nice too. Never mind that you get to seat next to the hippest new yorkers among them some heavy... More

You can't get away from the fact that the food is outstanding. Spoiled for choice menu everything we ate was superb. However Indochine suffers from the New York curse of a very noisy dining room where conversation is difficult, crowded tables almost on top of each other and a maitre d' who seats his stylish 'friends' before guests with reservations....

A group of us went for a prearranged dinner. The food was very good, the service was efficient. However, the noise level stifled attempts at conversation, which was my only disappointment.

I was a guest here, and totally underwhelmed. First of all, reservations had been made because we were a party of about 9 or 10, there for a birthday dinner celebration. And it was early, after a show across the street. And yet...they kept us waiting for our table for nearly 40 minutes around 7pm. Most New Yorkers haven't evened... More
