The setting of this restaurant is really stunning. We'd struggled to find anywhere in the area that was recommended for its food, but wasn't in a shopping mall or hotel, so we were delighted to discover Indochine. Great character, right on the waterfront, with views across to Boat Quay and surrounded by historic buildings, with a backdrop of skyscrapers. Service was very friendly, efficient and relaxed. The food was really lovely and fresh - the prawn rolls and the lemongrass infused beef were real highlights. The atmosphere was perfect. With the warm breeze and the view of boats on the river and the lanterns from the string of bars on Boat Quay, it had real character and was a wonderful place to spend an evening. It wasn't cheap (£75k per head for three courses each and a bottle of wine between two), but it was worth it and I would love to return.

Basically Vietnamese food, but selections of other Asian foods, and even an English/American page in the menu. The view on the boat quay is important here, so sit outside. You can enter directly from the Asian Civilisations Museum, or from the boat quay. This was my first visit, so I cannot comment much on the offerings, but I would like to return here on my next visit to Singapore, and I would recommend it strongly.

We decided to eat here because the outdoor setting looked so good. We were not disappointed. The food is a real mix of cultures with Indonesian, Vietnamese and Thai being at the forefront. We shared a delightful array of fried fish and vegetables to start and I had duck in green curry for main - absolutely delightful! We will definitely be returning here.

If you can't find something you like on the menu at Indochine then you might want to re-think your diet. There is a wide choice on the menu and all the dishes we had were well cooked and presented. Indoor or outdoor the restaurant has a great atmosphere. The service is very good with a high ratio of waiters and waitresses to customers. I would recommend Indochine for group dinners. There's plenty of space and with such a varied menu everyone will find something they like.

This is a mid-priced restaurant attached to the Asian Cultural Museum on the waterfront of the Singapore River. The food is good -- maybe 7 or 8 out of 10 for a restaurant with this type of cooking. Service was good but there seemed to be an extra effort to sell a bottle of wine or an extra course, and it got to the point of being a bit annoying. Four of us ad dinner outside and it was nice to have a view of the river and the skyline on the other side. The ambiance was relatively calm and quiet.
