Good food

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.

I dined here with 3 friends on a Saturday night. It was delicious and excellent value for money. Plus a nice change from western food. The restaurant was very busy, I would recommend making a reservation. We spent a total of 218 chf but ordered a lot -- 1 bottle of white wine, 1 green papaya salad (super good), 1... More

I wish I could rate this restaurant with 3.5 stars! I have eventually decided to go for 4 stars mainly because the restaurant offers good value for money and a very friendly service. The food is good and the portions are big enough - we could not finish our dishes, nonetheless my husband and I are no big eaters. The... More

Delicious vietnamese food, authentic and nicely presented. Restaurant is not on a very nice street but certainly worth the trip.
