Excellent food in great setting. Attentive service. Model like crowd but more noise than the subway.
We ordered summer rolls which were ok, but we’ve had better. We also ordered Chilean Sea Bass and spare ribs. The ribs were quite good, but the sea bass didn’t have much flavor.
only dish that sparkled was the spicey beef, portabello mushroom was ehh and salmon was unexceptional. Chocolate cake was amazingly good. Space is dim and I asked the bartender if he had a flashlight to read the drink menu and was essentially rude and said no. As if it was an dd request. Good service would have a light at the ready.
A New York classic, around since the roaring 80's. Always delicious, bustling and dependable when I need some old NY.
Indochine is a unique place with a distinctive vibe that never disappoints. It’s where we go with friends to have a special night. The food is excellent, the service efficient and the decor fun and elegant.
Overall very good experience. We enjoyed everything we ordered. Amok, eggplant, pho, and hazelnut choc dessert were our favs. Also reccomend veggie roll and skirt steak. We arrived at 6:30, the 3 of us could converse comfortably but by 7:30 it became little to noisy for each to be heard. We’d retyrn anyway.
Always delicious!! ❤️
Always attacked by the noise level which makes conversation difficult. I expect it but .I’m always surprised by just how loud it is.
Excellent food but we couldn’t wait to get out because the noise level was too much. It was impossible to talk between the four of us.
We left without even looking at the desert menu.
We came to Indochine from Toronto and had a wonderful experience. Our favourite dishes were the skirt steak and the crispy shrimp- to die for. All the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming!
haven't been in years, this place is pricey but does not disappoint. Excellent service, good food, inimitable Vietnamese tastes -- we had the prix fixe and enjoyed it all immensely.
Whenever I visit NYC, INDOCHINE, is always a the top of my list! My all time favorite restaurant. A NYC institute for over 34 years. Great ambience, exotic, tropical decor and THE FOOD, ohhh my my my, has ALWAYS been superb! The servers/service have continued to be wonderful and always friendly. Thank you Jean-Marc on your continued success. I wish you were still in LA.
Amazing as always!
one of the best restaurants in NYC. A veritable institution.
I haven’t been to Indochine in a few years and it was as great as I remember. The recommendations from the staff were terrific and the atmosphere and vibe were wonderful. Looking forward to returning
way too noisy
Seated immediately; food well prepared and attractively presented; service impeccable.
This is my 3rd or 4th time dining @ Indochine.
I have especially liked the ambience .
This particular evening (June 20), the place was very crowded and thus noisier than usual.
The food very good but we assumed that the rice came with the entrees NOT separately at an minimal but additional cost.
All in all a good experience but would have been better if a bit quieter.
Consistently delicious - varied Asian fare - Vietnmese? or Malaysian? The service is generally excellent without being pushy. Great dinner option for The Public Theatre - across the street from the theatre and they will get you out in time for whatever curtain you are making
Always love this restaurant for lovely, unique SE Asian food. Great selection of apps and beautiful fish dishes. A special place and ideal for celebratory occasions.
No matter how many times I go here, it never disappoints.
Great staff and awesome food.
The cocktails are delicious as well as the food, super quick service and everyone was so nice. I’m Vietnamese so I know good Vietnamese and it was delicious. Will def return!
Aunt was visiting from out of town.
I hadn't been there in years and since we were seeing a play at The Public across the street, decided to go again.
It did not disappoint. The food was excellent and the pre-theatre prix fix menu more than worth the price. Great choices.
It's great to re-visit an old friend that is still fresh and new. Plan to return next time I' go to The Public.
Waiter spilt a drink down my white trousers. Barely got an apology and they took $14 off the check at the end of the evening. The one drink they spilt.
Yes, for a restaurant that had its heyday a long time ago, to still have an attitude as to where they seat you (specially on a Sunday night at 7:00 pm) is not only deplorable but doesn’t make any sense business wise in these days and age..
Indochine has still got it. Ambience and food were excellent. Staff are fab and friendly.
Indochine delivers a consistent product and ambience that always reminds me when I return after so long that I should probably come back next week as well.
The only really negative aspect of our experience was the deafening noise level. We have dined there before and it wasn’t so bad. By 730 our group( 9) had to shout at each other to be heard. A minor quibble is that portion sizes were inconsistent. We had double orders of various dishes and they varied quite a bit. Food was very tasty and service attentive, though a bit slow at times.
Tutti i piatti di pesce non erano buoni
In particolare la zuppa di pesce aveva un odore sgradevole e un sapore di congelato
Anche gli antipasti modesti
Made us wait 40 min for our table when there were several empty tables
The food and our charming waitress made up for it
This place was ok. Very scene-y. Food was good, nothing special. Ribs we so salty they were nearly inedible. Service was dreadful. Took 10 mins to try and flag someone down to order rice. Probably won’t ever go back unless I’m not the one paying!
The food was appreciated by my guests but I’ve spent time in SEAsia and it was unfortunately dumbed down. The Amok bore no resemblance to Amok in Cambodia or Thailand. The summer rolls were disappointingly tasteless. There was no use of fresh herbs like coriander or mint or basil in anything I ordered. Too bad because people are ready for stronger tastes now. No need to tone things down anymore. I last ate here in the 70s! It’s great to see this restaurant still here, convenient to the Public Theatre.
We are never disappointed at Indochine. We ordered all the hot appetizers on the menu plus sticky rice. Everything was mega delicious. The waitpeople are friendly and gorgeous. We've been going here for years, always wonderful. It's an A+++
Great place, great peope! Got it recommended by a friend and I was not dissapointed. A must when in NYC!
After 3 decades, better than ever. Thank you!
Amazing food and ambience! We started with summer rolls, spring rolls, and junbo lump crab cake. For dinner we shared the spicy chicken breast, fried whole red snapper, and the bouillabaisse. For dessert we shared the pear wontons and the cream brûlée. I’m looking forward to coming back soon!
Nice spot, really. Charming people, wonderful food and nice waiters. everything to provide for a special dinner. (but please ask guests not to come in with their baseball cap on!!!)
Noise level great enough to make conversation difficult; otherwise, terrific.
We went to Indochine for the 7th or 8th time, this time for a combined birthday/anniversary dinner before the theater. The location of Indochine is great if you’re going to the Public Theatre. The people who work there, make and female, are all elegant and beautiful to look at. The ambiance is chic and artsy. It’s a place that people of any age or demographic who like something a little exotic, luxe, friendly and downtown-y would love. The menu has a lot of fish meals, which we love. Drinks are exotic and delicious. We had the Chilean sea bass and the red snapper. Both were delicious. The CSB was in a tasty broth, the snapper flash fried to crispy perfection. We shared the Vietnamese cake with sesame ice cream and coffee gratinée for dessert and it was romantic and festive. The only problem was service this time. We ordered a side dish that never arrived. In addition , my husband ordered a glass of wine that also never materialized. I don’t know what happened but no one came by our table for 15 minutes after dinner was served so by time they came by we didn’t even bother to mention it - it was too late to enjoy them with our meals. I would still go back. It’s still romantic, great for food and for the downtown people watching thing. Just not up to the service standard we’d exoerienced before.
