Visiting New York from London for my sisters 30th birthday. Booked this restaurant as the menu looked lovely (reservations were easy to make) and there were quite good reviews with regards to the food but not the service. I can clarify that the service was APPAULING - most of the waitresses thought they were too good to be there and were not at all warm and welcoming. It is such a shame as the place has potential but the staff had let it down. The tables are also very close together with no room to get up without knocking into the table next to you. Our waitress in particular kept elbowing AND leaning on my sister when taking orders and serving the tables either side of us. The food was delicious, can't fault it at all.

Food was excellent but service is far too fast and they kept on interrupting. Without even waiting us to finish the appetizer they brought the main course. Our conversation was constantly interrupted by waiter for service, request....

Food was okay. the entrees were better than the starters. Initially the waitperson was not very pleasant and seemed very unhappy. Mid meal her attitude did improve. Hostess had zero personality and was put out that she had to retrieve our checked coats. The experience as a whole was disappointing.

Hot spot with amazing food and a nice scene with great ambiance. The only negative thing id the hostess’ attitude that is outstanding for it’s lack of service and professionalism.

We did not receive all the sharing dishes we ordered, but the last item (the special for only 16 dollars) was still added to the bill. When we pointed that out, our waiter said the kitchen insisted that it had been sent out and the waitress thought she had seen it on our table although we had not received it/eaten it/seen what it looked like. They refused to take it off the bill ultimately - basically meaning that four paying customers were lying. Worst service ever.

I have never had a meal at Indochine that I’ve enjoyed but the staff is so great, the decor such a retro delight that I always have a good time. It’s my guilty pleasure so yeah I’ll be back but not for the food. Whatever “it” is that makes you want to return to a place, Indochine has it. I’m just glad it’s still there.

Lots of tall people, lots of noise getting louder as the evening progressed.
Couldn't sit down until the third person in our party arrived. Wierd?
Food good, very much like good Vietnamese or good Thai restaurant food from untrendy ethnic restaurant.

Too noisy for me at 71 yrs. But maybe good for young people who don't care what anyone else at the table is saying

Excellent bottle of Cote de Rhone!

Wonderful inventive Vietnamese food - interesting combos, tasty options. Try to go with more
than a two people to taste various offerings. The atmosphere is fun and interesting. The wait staff couldn't be more solicitous without being over bearing - and they were great looking - all of them.

We loved Indochine since it first opened in the 80s. Having lived abroad we recently revisited finding it busy as in its heighdays. Surprisingly the ambiance and design have not changed at all. The food is still enjoyable, we liked the whole crispy fish especially. Service appeared a bit stressed at times and the noise level was high.

Aucun plat n etait bon, tout etait terriblement epicé (pourtant j'aime bien le piment)
