Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Great food! Service was spot on. Wait staff worked as a team, our order was ready and some one other than our waiter brought the food "So it wouldn't get cold"."

  • "I always get the same thing...fresh spring rolls with peanut sauce and red curry. I think about getting something different but why mess with success?! I've never had a bad experience here."

  • "Thus is the better indoshine of the other one in Tacoma by Point Defience. It's a relative that has the other location but the prices on food is cheaper at the other location too. This one here on Pacific Ave is our favorite."

  • "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 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."

  • "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"

  • "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. "

  • "We were not impressed. They called us 4 hrs before our reservation to confirm the time and to let us know that we had to be out after 90 minutes because it was a "really busy night" and they had another table booked right behind us. I found this to be incredibly tacky and rude. We did everything we could to take our time while dining.... First we ordered drinks and they were the only good thing we had. They have a good cocktail menu and were able to make a nice mocktail. We then ordered our appetizer (lettuce wraps) and they were OK... Pad Thai Chicken was very generic tasting. Honey Glazed Walnut Prawns were TERRIBLE and way too sweet. The dessert menu left much to be desired, so we went to Pacific grill for dessert. Save your money!"

  • "We have been to Indochine many times but it has been a while as we moved out of state. We met our parents and my sisters family there. As normal we had excellent service and the food is always excellent. They are always consistent and large quantify of food. We always recommend this place and if your willing to walk across the bridge there is a fun little bar just across from Johnnie's Seafood Bar. They have great martini's and always again excellent service there too!"

  • "Excellent dinner here! Food is delicious, service quick and attentive. The two drawbacks were how cold the restaurant was (three of the four in our party kept their coats on for the entire meal) and having only ONE bathroom (= one toilet) for women and one for men. "

  • "As long as I lived in Tacoma I never be to this restaurant. Me and friend went for dinner, love the candle lit dinning. loved the décor, make you feel like you are in another place. the food was great, I had the drunken beef with rice noodles, mildly spicy and it was cooked to perfection! my friend had the orange chicken with a side rice and it was good as well. the portions are big enough to share so we did. would return to the restaurant again, I would suggest this place to anybody."

  • "The restaurant is gorgeous and in an awesome location - but other than that, I don't get the hype. We thought the food wasn't much better than your typical neighborhood Thai restaurant, the service was slow, and the prices are high."

  • "We were really looking forward to eating at Indochine. The atmosphere was nice. But the food was SO disappointing. Everything was bland - the battered and fried calamari was mostly fried batter. The dipping sauces tasted like they were right out of a jar, and my chicken was so tough and dry, I could barely chew it! The "house specialty" shrimp were bland and doughy too. I would expect this kind of food from a fast food place. Worst asian food I've ever had at a restaurant."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Indochine continues to provide good food and excellent ambiance. Although the quality of the food, and its associated costs, have remained consistently positive, the service quality has taken a bit of a dive. Servers do not seem to be as enthusiastic; it seems to take longer to be seated (even with a reservation) and orders to be placed, too. The most disappointing point during the most recent visit was entering through the rear parking entry after UW Tacoma campus hours. There is a call box at the door for guests to request entry. However, numerous attempts proved futile. Telephoning directly had somewhat better results: a server came to open the door ten minutes later. Walking around the block might have been faster."
