    Indochine: Indochine

    IndoChine Clarke Quay is the latest outlet in Singapore comprising of the
    Restaurant Madame Butterfly and Bar Cocoon both of which make up one of Southeast Asia's biggest art gallery cum dining venue.

    Great Ambience! You can choose to dine by the Singapore River or enter the Forbidden City. The building 1st captured my attention.

    Try the Vension Meat on hot plate and their Beef Stew. When odering their beef, be sure to ask the waiter.
    I ordered a plate of raw beef marinated with salt and herbs ;p Got to down it with my glass of Butterfly Effect.

    IndoChine waterfront restaurant: Chic, sophisticated and excellent food

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are looking for an excellent restaurant, with a lot of choices and focus on western people, indochine is the right choice.
    - A lot of different food from different countries (Thai, Chinese, Vietnam, Indonesia, ...)
    So, a good way to experiment several kind of tasting
    - Staff very efficient, as usual in Singapore
    - Quite expensive (but it worth)
    - Lovly ambience with the river and the view on boat quay
    - A chic Oriental decor
    - Slightly Sophisticated

    Reservation is recommended. Strongly recommended for a business dinner, not for a birthday party with fun as 1st motivation.

    Favorite Dish: All, with a "plus" for the Thai soup, really excellent

    Indochine- Club Street

    by gueto Written Jun 28, 2007

    If you want to taste a nice and elegant dish and are willing to spend some extra bucks don´t miss this restaurant.

    Located on a very fashionable and renovated area of Chinatown, on Club Street where you can have a walk afterwards.

    There are different restaurants that belong to Indochine. This restaurant is especialized in Vietnamese, Laotian and Cambiodian cuisine.

    The atmosphere is very nice and calmed, ideal for a couple.

    Favorite Dish: Well, all dishes are well thought and presented. Personally I loved and totally reccomend Duck with curry and the Papaya salad to start with. Be aware that papaya salad comes quite spicy if you don´t ask to be it light. Lemongrass lamb is also great to taste.

    Indochine: Best Vietnamese-french food and best atmosphere!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are 3 restaurants of the same chain.
    The best is located in the river bank in boat quay. In the opposite side of all the touristy restaurants.
    It has an incredible exotic decoration, expect lots of Budas, palm trees , groove music and an excellent outdoor terrace.
    Blend of French and Vietnamese cuisine to the perfection

    Favorite Dish: Papaya salad
    Fish in coconut sauce
    Sticky rice with mango

    L"Indochine: Food with a view

    by Ramonq Written Feb 24, 2006

    This is a fine restaurant which is overlooked by tall skyscrapers from across the Singapore River. It is in the colonial heart of Singapore where many old buildings have been done up and transformed into galleries and restaurants. The food is of Indochinese fare. I had a Cambodian-style meal and reminded me of the trips to Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. This is where we had a VT meet before proceeding to the Raffles Hotel. Attached is my VT meet with imstress.

    Indochine: Beautiful restaurants, but not worth it

    by trisanna Updated Apr 13, 2005

    The Indochine restaurant group has several restaurants in Singapore and one in Germany. They have Indochine, Siem Reap(more cafe like), Nude (Wisma Atria at Orchard Road) and some other locations. I know people, who love these restaurants. They are beautiful and decorated well. The Indochine restaurant at Empress Place is stunning-mixing crystal chandeliers with antique Buddha images.

    The service at these establishments is so bad. I had to wait three hours for dinner. I have been here several times-due to my friends dragging me here and it's always the same i am sad to say. I would really love to like there restaurants.

    Indochine serves mostly Thai, Lao and Cambodian cuisine with a French twist. I was impressed with a beef stew i had. The dessert was nice.

    Siem Reap is alright. Cafe fair. Some asian and western dishes. I felt the asian dishes are better at local restaurants or hawker centers and much much cheaper.

    On thursday and weekend nights-they usually have a band playing outside.

    But you never know-it may be perfect when you go there. I don't think it's worth it. There are so many better restaurants in Singapore.

    Indochine Waterfront: Pricy but wonderful

    by SPW Written Jul 22, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wonderful ambience, on the river with dining on the terrace or indoors in the icy airconditioning.
    The food is wonderfully flavoured, South-East asian themed, and beautifully presented.
    There is an extensive, expensive wine list which obviously adds to the cost of a meal.

    Favorite Dish: Was it the soft shelled crab, or perhaps the mango dessert. Choosing a favourite is almost impossible.
