    This is my go-to in Tacoma and again Indochine did not disappoint! We missed our reservation time and the place was packed w Katy Perry fans among others on a beautiful evening. They got us in anyway. The lettuce wraps were vibrant and spicy crispy. I loved the pot stickers w crews wrappers and almost a sausage type filling. Then we finished w stir fried beef and brown rice. Only regret was no room for mango sticky rice...

    Went there for a pre-concert dinner. Had reservation, were seated immediately, ordered drinks and then had a very relaxed, pleasant dinner. Drinks were delicious, portions were very generous and food was delicious! They also had private rooms for special occasions which looked very cool. They were kind enough to call me beforehand and let me know that because of the concert there would be extra traffic in the area and to allow extra time; so nice! Close enough to walk to the Tacoma Dome for our concert (free street parking) and then afterwards we just jumped right back on the freeway and avoided the clogged/congested post concert traffic.

    When asked where my daughter wanted to eat for her 18th Birthday dinner she chose Indochine. Why? Because it's her favorite restaurant. We were seated immediately thanks to making reservations with OpenTable. Our waiter was absolutely fantastic and we felt very special. The entrees we ordered were good sized portions and very delicious. Our waiter made this a five star experience with his tentiveness and always filled water glasses and just his happiness of loving his job!

    Dined on 9/6/2014
    The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, but the seating is clumsy. We were seated in bench seats that obscured the view of the restaurant. I was facing a window with direct sunlight, so it was hard to see. Service started good, but went downhill. Our waitress was on 20, so she was unable to give advice on wine selection. She did not offer to have a more experience waiter or waitress help. Next, she brought the wrong drink. Last, she rung the wrong table with my card, posting an additional $100 to my bank account which I hope will be removed. As for the food, it was terrible. We order 3 and 4 star (spice) meals, and neither dish had any flavor or heat. Not once did anyone ask if our meal was OK. I doubt I will return.

    Dined on 8/21/2014
    What's not to love about Indochine downtown? From appetizers to dessert, the four of us raved about our menu choices, shared tastes and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Service was perfect. The wait staff was knowledgeable, helpful and right on time. The quality of ingredients, preparation and presentation were all top notch and the prices are reasonable especially when compared to comparable restaurants in Tacoma. Actually, Indochine rises above any other Tacoma restaurant we've come across. Décor and ambiance make it a special occasion spot for sure. Because we are seniors, we needed to be seated at a table with chairs as opposed to the backless bench style seating at some tables, but our request for that was readily accommodated.

    This may be the best thai food I've ever had. Our server was genuinely friendly and cared that we had a great experience. When we told her we were vegan she had great menu suggestions. Even vegan gelato!!! (Made with coconut milk.) The decor and atmosphere are wonderful as well. I wish I lived in tacoma so I could go there more often!

    Even though we ordered our food somewhat spicy, there didn't seem to be much hint of spice at all...pretty bland, but still good. Took a long time to get our drinks in the restaurant. Wait staff and bartender were excellent, ambience great w/ perfect lighting and music. It was a fun time overall; 4 of us shared 4 different dishes which made for a great variety.

    Made a reservation for my husband's 50th birthday and noted that on the reservation. Absolutely no acknowledgment and didn't meet my reservation request. My food was cold and not fit to eat. My husband's meal was okay but not great. They do have a good vegan selection on apps which worked for our son's dietary restriction. The ambience is excellent, very beautiful. Our server was not great, slow on drinks and forgot to bring a few things we asked for. Price was reasonable except for my meal which was expensive and awful. I ate three bites and gave up.

    I got the drunken beef noodles. The noodles tasted super fresh, and the beef was beyond tender. I was so impressed with it until I got to the veggies. Carrots, green beans, and baby corn was all from a frozen batch. You can tell the difference in texture between frozen and thawed veggies, and fresh veggies. The restaurant could save some face by doing fresh veggies (and less of it if they are trying to cut costs) SO not worth it to be throwing frozen in with what could have potentially been the best shrunken beef noodles ever.

    I love this restaurant! Easily within my top 5 places to dine in Washington State. The ambiance is wonderful, the food exquisite and delicious, the wait staff attentive and adept. The only problem I had was with the noise level. This stems from all the patrons being loud enough to talk over the other patrons talking over the humdrum. Additionally, the music that was playing (which was barely audible) didn't quite match the style of the restaurant.

    I went there with my husband and 2 teenagers for dinner on Father's Day. My husband works close by and often eats here and said the food and service at lunch are always very good. He suggested I order the garlic prawns and even he was surprised how the meal came.. More like a soup rather than a stir fry. My children ordered the orange chicken which they were disappointed with. My daughter said she had it before when she was there for a bday party and it was much better then. Our server Brittany was very slow awkward and also disappointing. The gal who cleaned our table looked angry at the world and had trouble smiling. I have no desire to ever eat there again

    I ordered the calamari for an appetizer and the Mongolian beef as an entre. The calamari was ok but nothing to establish the dish as special. The Mongolian beef was horrible, greasy, fatty, lacking taste. All around I would expect the same food quality at a chain Chinese restaurant, in which I refuse to eat at. They do offer to replace your meal if you're not satisfied, however I find this annoying and a great excuse for not making every dish to standard.

    Indochine is a great local restaurant with high caliber cuisine. I love to take out-of-towners here to show them a little bite of Tacoma and it never fails to impress. That said, the service is sometimes hit or miss. Sometimes it's excellent, sometimes just so-so. Still, it's absolutely worth it for the food. Delicious!

    I'm a long time fan of Indochine. Best Pad Thai I've had in the Puget Sound and even in many places in Asia I've travelled. The curries are rich and flavorful, the fresh spring rolls are cool, crisp, and delicious. Save room for the Chocolate Nemesis cake (flourless) and a scoop of the Gelato they make in house.
