“Have it your way”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

I was looking for a meal that I could take back to my hotel room one evening when I was in Halifax. Indochine was on the same block as my hotel. It is a small place with a limited menu but I was happy with what was offered. I loved that you could choose from a variety of options in terms of what you wanted in the sandwich - there were a number of meat and poultry options as well a a "vegetarian pate" for the protein. They also offered a whole wheat baguette option.The quality of the ingredients was good and it hit the spot for me that night. I recommend it for a quick and easy option.

“So fresh and delicious! Love it!”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

For a little location, Indochine is big and rich in colour with their design and food choices. This is the kind of place you order a special, take a seat and then people watch through the wall of glass as crowds go along South Park Street to the right.

My friend Emily highly recommended the Korean tacos and she knows her Korean food so I got the 2 tacos for $7.50 deal. I ordered the Bulgogi Beef and the Spicy BBQ Chicken.

These are the healthiest, tastiest and freshest tacos I have ever had! The sprouts were so crunchy and the flavours delicious. The Bulgogi Beef was very tasty but the Spicy BBQ Chicken was unbelievably delicious. Seriously, I have not enjoyed something that much in a long time. I wish I knew what that sauce was they used. Stunning! It is good I did not realize that it was the spicy option at the time or else I might not have had the guts to order it. Not super strong hot, just lots of great flavour.

Emily got the Jerk Chicken taco special and really liked it and Jen got her usual, the tofu taco and loved it. As usual.

To wash it all down I got a mango smoothie with I think pineapple and coconut water. This was my first introduction to coconut water at all. I liked the smoothie but there was a funkiness to it that I could not place back then. However, I am pretty sure now it was the coconut water.

Indochine Banh Mi makes their recipes from scratch and they were not kidding when they said the food was fresh, delicious and healthy. I would eat here every day if I could. I love it when a restaurant delivers on its foodie promises. Next time I will just skip the coconut water in the smoothie and everything will be perfect, I just know it. I give this restaurant experience four and a half out of five wooden spoons.

“Excellent.”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Indochine Banh Mi is one of the best restaurants I've been to in awhile. Their flavours are amazing and their food is fresh and often locally sourced. I eat here at any chance I get and would choose eating here over all other restaurants in the area. I absolutely recommend trying this place out!! I try to bring new people with me whenever I visit and everyone I've taken there has also loved it.
Absolutely excellent.

“Loved it”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

We picked up a couple sandwiches from here before heading up to the Citadel. I got the chicken, and my friend go the spicy beef, they also have a veggie option. But it was amazing, they pickle all their vegetables themselves and it is the perfect combination of crunchy goodness. Their drinks are also made with real food and prices are extremely reasonable and SUPER nice servers!!

“Excellent sandwiches”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

We have ordered the pork meatball sandwich here over a dozen times.
They make the most delicious sandwiches. The flavours are incredible and fresh. The meat is spicy and tender. The special homemade mayo sauce makes my mouth water. I brought my cousin and her partner here when they were visiting from BC and they raved about the flavours.
The bubble tea is a winner and the soups look yummy.
I think the price is reasonable considering the size of the sandwich and all the fresh ingredients.
I look forward to going back all the time and would definitely recommend.
The location is also superb as it is right across from the public gardens.
