FOOD?

Consistently decent traditional Vietnamese food. I recommend the buns (pronounced ‘boon’) which are the rice vermicelli dishes served with salads/vegies and your choice of meats. The Vietnamese egg pancake was tasty and the filling was satisfying. Ordering the usual Vietnamese dishes are a safe bet as these are their specialty so you can’t really go wrong here. Also, noodle soups are perfect during Winter to warm yourself up!

SERVICE?

Waitresses are straight to the point which can come across as a tad rude. Don’t expect 5-star service.

AMBIENCE?

Indochine is usually packed with a mixed bunch of mostly locals and regulars. It is noisy inside due to the busyness but it adds to the atmosphere.

VALUE?

You could go to Springvale and order the same meals for several dollars cheaper but having said this, Indochine meals are quite affordable. It is BYO wine so that is a plus and perfect for a quiet night out.

BOOKINGS?

Yes, book ahead to avoid disappointment especially during weekends as it is usually busy. If you’re dining with one other person this should be okay but you may have to wait a bit depending on the night.
