Cafe Indochine

Good value, nice atmosphere

What we say: 3 stars

An understated restaurant on a busy road, Cafe Indochine pays nod to all countries of former French Indochina, though the focus is on Vietnam.

Daily specials marked on a board outside offer a good introduction to Vietnamese cuisine and good value considering its elegant decor. For example, set #3 includes lemongrass chicken, fresh spring rolls, soup, rice, and a fruit platter for 40,000 kip.

The staple dish of Vietnam, pho bo, can be executed perfectly with steaming beef broth, firm noodles and fresh herbs, priced at 20,000 kip. Unfortunately, service and food quality can be hit or miss, with the fusion dishes falling flat in odd, ultimately unsuitable combinations.
