Description: Asian-inspired cuisine at Indochine is an evocative, fine dining food theatre, where delicate flavours come alive and each dish is synonymous with vitality, wellness and healthy living. 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. Enjoy every moment of exquisitely balanced Asian-influenced flavours in an intimate setting. Inside, a vibrant blue and copper colour palette creates a calming backdrop. Dine under 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.

Indochine was the surprise of the trip. Supposedly the alternate dinning choice, wow can’t imagine getting better.

The wine pairings explained by Kyle the Sommelier made the meal. Can’t imagine the meal without him.

This was a 6 out of 5 in flaver, Service and ambiance.

The restaurant is beautiful, and the service attentive. I though the menu was a bit lacking in choice, and not very special when the dishes arrived

The manager, sommelier and waiter could not have been more friendly or more helpful. This really made for a delightful evening. The exquisite food (incredible detail) helped as well. Lamb tikka quails scotch egg and seafood vindaloo followed by an extraordinary combination chocolate dessert. Lots of little extra tastes arrived at the table.
Lovely wine pairings suggested by the glass, including their excellent dessert wine.
The people made this a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

This restaurant is situated in an excellent estate. The drive up to the restaurant is great. I went there on a day when the sun was out and the landscaping was in it's finery. The outdoor part of the restaurant overlooks the garden and the breeze adds to the place. The service is attentive.
The food was a bit of a surprise. It was quite unlike any Thai food or Thai fusion food I have had anywhere in the world. Besides an absence of 'thai-ness' in the food, I found a distinct mismatch in their concept of spiciness. I was informed that the Thai Green Curry was a 7 or 8 on the spice scale, and I found that it had nearly no spice, not even warranting a rating of 1.
So I enjoyed the view, ambience and wine, but the food was distinctly underwhelming.
I do not recommend this restaurant for the food.
