Yet another Chinese buffet. There was no Thai food apart from a green curry with slimy battered fish - tasty but not Thai. The rices, noodles and stir fried vegetables were cold. The duck was dry as bone. The dim sum was poor in quality...and taste and the sauces not authentic. Apart from the soy. There was a basic offering of sushi (maki only). And you could make your own Pho with chicken which was quite good. Otherwise, cheap industrial food- not authentic, not enjoyable unless you like quantity over quality.More

Indochine is a Thai buffet restaurant with delicious and FRESH choices. Very popular for dinner, it is just a few minutes walk from the train station. Self service, a little more expensive than the usual Chinese buffet, but well worth it!

Whenever I crave for asian food, L'Indochine is always were I go. Good range of quality food (chinese, japanese, vietnamese) so anyone can find something to his taste!

This buffet is okay.. sufficient if you want some Asian food. Small. I would rate it lower than Panda Express.

L'Indochine Thai restaurant in the center of Tours is a real delight! Far from the omnipresent run of the mill Chinese buffet restaurants in France offering all-you-can-eat meals made from frozen food imported from China, L'Indochine's dishes are FRESH, beautifully presented and delicious. Here you...WILL NOT see enormous buffet tables full of trays heaping with unappetizing slop drying up under heat lamps! Instead you WILL SEE nicely presented, healthy, fresh asian dishes tempting you from small crocks and trays presented all around the main room. My party of 3 came for lunch on a Saturday and were immediately impressed with the cleanliness and decor of the downstairs buffet room. Service was prompt and friendly. Starting at the salad table I counted 3 completely different salads available, all prepared in individual single serving bowls. Sushi, spring rolls, nems, were varied and well presented. Main dishes with peanut / cashew sauces? Sure, but much, much more too: From shrimp and squid to beef, chicken, duck or vegetarian, there were at least 10 main dishes to choose from, most in small crock pots along one wall. The dessert offerings were much better than the typical asian buffet choices of super sweet syrupy lychees! Here there were many healthy choices of fresh fruit, melons and so on. More than a Thai restaurant, L'Indochine offers a variety of asian cuisines as healthy and delicious as they are beautiful! Not to be missed!More

Returning from a trip to the Alps, we stopped in Tours for an overnight rest. One of our party quickly researched the area and suggested this Asian restaurant. Early as it was, we were welcomed downstairs to the then vastly empty dining area whilst food...was gradually being brought out. We were not only impressed by the immense variety [Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese] of dishes offered, but more pertinently the quality of all which we savoured. Fresh flavours and structures abounded bountifully. The surrounding tables were quickly filled. Having initially sought a brief feast away from the Alpine heartiness we'd been indulged with the past week, we found ourselves unable to restrict our palates to two or three helpings as each one of us brought another dish back to the table which proved only to stretch & test each others temptation. Every dish we sampled was a delight. Despite the wealth of diners during our meal, our hosts were both attentive and courteous throughout. A truly welcomed discovery.More

Chinese food is generally not too good in France but this is above average. I have been there several times for lunch with friends and we have always enjoyed the food

From a locals point of view i think there are better asian restaurants in tours. Had to wait quite a while before waiter came to take drink order but staff is very pleasant. Buffet is reasonable price and food is good quality and topped up...frequently. Limited choice for dessert. Good value for money but nothing special.More
