The Asian-inspired cuisine at Indochine is part of an evocative, fine dining food theatre, where delicate flavours come alive. Discover Asian tapas turned into an art form, or experience a tea ceremony, find signature dishes like pork belly and duck – everything is served to create an all-sensory dining experience. Virgil Kahn, Head Chef at Indochine, is an expert craftsman of Asian-influenced food. With his signature South African twist, dishes are light and lean with explosions of flavour where beauty and balance shines through. Enjoy every moment in an intimate setting beneath the stunning Swallows in Flight art installation, sculpted by Lionel Smit and Andre Stead, where over 1300 swallows become part of the incredible views that stretch across to Table Mountain.
What an excellent restaurant. Top notch service and wonderfully flavourful food. The octopus starter with squid ink was fantastic and I would highly recommend the Penang Lamb as a main course.
The service was good and the sommelier knowledgeable, however, when the chef tells you in a blasé manor that the abundance of lemon pips in your Tom yum starter is last minute flavoring, one can only expect average to terrible food.
Lovely setting, food portions small and somewhat disappointing. I think there are far better (and cheaper) Asian restaurants in the Cape. The service definitely was lacking and seemed to be no communication amongst the staff.
