Description: A sense of Indochina located in the heart of the city Inspired by the movie “Indochine” by director Regis Wargnier, the Indochine Restaurant was opened right in the heart of a bustling street, yet still remains its isolated nature. Leaving behind any daily worries, customers will go on a pleasant journey as soon as he or she step into the grandiose old 19th century villa – where Indochine Saigon is located. Following the unique and excellent design, the Indochine Restaurant is skillfully divided into different room sections, from the separate cozy dining rooms to spacious and elegant ones, as if to bring customers back to the old Saigon. The beautiful garden adorned with a “cloud-shape” lake which is skillfully made by master craftsmen is eminently suitable for any outdoor parties or events. A beautiful and elegant designed public bar with dozens of types of drinks made from Vietnamese traditional fruit would bring great joy to any customer. With a wealth of experience and passion in their expertise, chefs in Indochine Restaurant have spent an adequate time to visit any corner of this country to discover, experience and, literally cook with regional inhabitants. From what they have experienced, chefs in Indochine Restaurant will capture the very essence of every meal they have tried and create such an extensive and colorful menu that we currently have. Customers can detect distinguishing smell and taste of different unique meals which could only be found in this restaurant. With the above special features, Indochine Restaurant would present the perfect choice to anyone who has a savor in Vietnamese cuisine

We had the most delicious Vietnamese set meal in this restaurant which is set in an old french villa.. We sat outside on the patio by a small pond The atmosphere was magic as everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves particularly a group of locals across the pond. The patio was decorated with trees, shrubs, plants and fairy lights. Our waiter was charming and our dining experience was further enhanced by a small band of very talented musicians

“Wonderful atmosphere”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

This Restaurant provides excellent food in a wonderful atmosphere especially if you sit in the large patio outside. There are small private dining rooms also available in side but if it’s just the two of you or the four of you I recommend outdoor dining. We had local food and have been surprised by the wonderful decoration of the dishes. If you like an alcoholic beverage we recommend the local beer not the wine. Wines are quite pricy in Vietnam.

“Excellant Vietnamese Restaurant”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

This is a large restaurant set in an old bungalow and provide indoor and outdoor seating, they do provide private rooms for indoor.
We had great food because a local who is knowledgeable picked the food for us. This place has a large outdoor area among trees and a small pond, with a bass, guitar and violin band in the evening. They cater to tour groups as well. Generally when food is prepared in large quantity they tend to be not as good as when done in small portions, plus tour group organisers can be cost conscious.
All in all I will be back, in fact this is my second visit.

“Nice but predictable”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We had a set menu here as part of our tour. The food was decent, the place was nice but the atmosphere was not that nice. It really felt like a tourist trap.
