Much nicer than your typical Asian restaurant for a little more money. Creative and well prepared dishes (the calamari was amazing), Beautiful presentation and classy/ trendy environment (cool not stuffy). They were able to cater to members of our party with multiple food allergies and dietary restrictions (a vegetarian and MSG/gluten/dairy).

I have been to Indochine many times. This time my dining experience was very poor. The restaurant was not very busy, and the service was lacking.

We went for Tacoma Restaurant Week. The food was fabulous and were generous portions. There are unique seating areas and a nice private room in the back that could probably fit 10 people easily.

Had a great time celebrating one of our friend’s birthday. It was a last minute reservation and it was very convenient with our time. Right away someone called to confirmed the reservation. The service was great. Food came as expected. Our server was knowledgeable about the food that is being serve, her name is Kim. She’s very professional and her service provide an exceptional service to us. I will highly recommend it to friends over and over again. Been here more than 10 times. Celebrated my anniversary also, and I just love it.

Roomy space with wonderful bar seating, nicely decorated, cozy and quiet enough for easy conversation. Centrally located in Tacoma in historic building. Great food, large portions and excellent service.

The service was amazing - we loved our waitress. She never got irritated when we asked for clarification of things and she was pleasant the entire time. The drinks were fun and came with a beautiful real flower on them in addition to festive garnishes. The food was absolutely outstanding. We all loved our meals - one omnivore, one vegetarian and one vegan. We had the fresh spring rolls with tofu (with the fabulous sauce), green curry, red curry, and pad Thai. We tried the gelato for dessert and by far loved the vegan option we tried best - the yum-yum flavor. We had a wonderful experience and will absolutely be back again for dining in and take out. I highly recommend it.

The good was great but the service was bad. They add 18% service charge to every bill but the service was really bad. Took a long time to order and then a longer time to process the bill. Not worth the 18%

The food was fabulous and service was interesting . We had 3 or 4 diffferent people waiting on us ; do a bit confusing. The 18% service charge really detracted from our experience . I would much rather have a bit higher prices; it just presents better.

Absolutely terrible food. No flavor. 18% service charge on top of their overpriced entrees that made no sense to their East Asian theme. No kids menu as well. Uninspiring dishes that are sub par to a street corner teriyaki establishments standards. Placing an orchid and some dry slaw on every dish was super tacky too. Nothing made sense about this place. The bathroom was dirty. This place was an absolute joke. I literally thought I was in the twilight zone or would have had to think that someone was playing a cruel joke because I couldn’t believe how ridiculous everything was about this place that is centered in the heart of downtown Tacoma. The atmosphere is upscale and the layout was really nice just as I had originally remembered it from years past. BEWARE! You’ll have more satisfaction out of a night anywhere else compared to coming here and blowing money on this ridiculous place.

Food was amazing and the cost wasn’t half bad for the quality of food. Service was good and fast but a little brash. The music they were playing was horrible. I was forced to listen to 9 Katy perry songs straight followed by 7 Beyoncé songs straight. Would have appreciated some variety in the artists rather than being a victim of the sound disorientation torture technique.

We ordered two dishes as four star hot. When we got them, they were not spicy at all. One of the dishes was supposed to be made without bell peppers but it was loaded with them. We told the waitress about the un-spicy food and she brought us chili sauce for our food rather than offer to have it remade in the kitchen (as we ordered). I have been to Indochine several times but the portions were smaller this time and service was problematic.

Didn't like the 18% extra charge which didn't apply towards the tip (33% on top of the bill if you add a 15% tip to the 18% extra charge....$$). The server didn't come by enough to ask us if we wanted refills or more drinks. And the food was pretty blah. A 3 star Thai dish should be a little spicy but it wasn't. Great atmosphere but that was it.

The food was fantastic, and we haven't invented a word to describe how good the Flourless Chocolate Dessert is. The service was quick and attentive. It sure feels odd to leave the TIP line blank on the bull since they already added 18% to the bill. That being said it was a great value. Will return with friends.

Food was very good. Our servers were attentive and engaging. Food delivered to the table fairly quickly after ordering. Only complaint is they add an 18% service charge to your check to cover the new minimum wage instead of increasing their meal prices. I'm NOT a fan of this practice
