The food is simply amazing. I believe they have changed their chef. Bo Bun is delicious, Pho I could order every day, dumplings are making my mouth water. Service is smiley and professional. Perfect place for lunch or family dinner.

if you like Asian food especially south East Asian food, this restaurant you MUST TRY. They serve very traditional Vietnamese food. Especially beef Pho and Bun. If you think dinner for you is expensive, try lunch menu during weekday. Lunch menu is valuable and fast. Owner is a nice person and speaks French and English of course Vietnamese. Last but... More

Food is good and value for money excellent for Lausanne. Place is not huge and fills up so you need to reserve in advance. Service is a bit hurried for my taste. Waiter forgot our wine order as he was quite busy. All in all recommendable for a nice, not too expensive meal.

Returned after long time, good food. Service a bit slow but we were not in hurry. Loved the fondue. Better reserve.

We went for a Vietnamese meal, which we enjoyed. The lady (owner?) was pleasant and efficient. One of the waiters, though was rather dozy... The food was good, especially the red tuna. The portions were large and everything was hot. I would recommend this restaurant. The prices were correct but not cheap.

It's a long time we're going to the Indochine, but the service is less and less good, dishes always the same (some are quite good), they do not have a decent pimento (they first tried tabbasco, then sambal oeleck, it's a shame for a decent asiatic restaurant). Last time they forgot the pimento in the "papaye verte salade". So quality... More

The service is OK, the quality of food too and the price is average. Big lack of parking in the area...

An ok meal was ruined by appalling service by the owners and mistake in the bill. The restaurant is understaff. The bill machine printed the wrong price and we had to pay their mistake. They even threaten to call the police when we challenged the price. Unbelivable.
