I always enjoyed the food and the café viennois when I go there. Waitresses give good service. Owner? Or the one man dressed like the owner who came at the door only because we fetched for him downstairs. Not so much. Yesterday (the 5 July 2016), around 6 PM, restaurant was empty, and he turned my husband and I around... More

First time back since 2007 or so and it's still good. Not expensive either. We both had vegetarian options. The coconut curry tofu was very good.

I love the tamarind soup here and the lunch specials. They use fresh mint and basil. My friend is vegan and they always accommodate her.

On a cold winter evening the place was lovely and the food was great. The small fireplace upstairs sets a lovely tone, along with the white walls. Get one of the specials, they come with the wonderful soup!

For a bowl of pho for $14, I was expect something more flavourful and authentic. The service at Cafe Indochine is really good. We also tried Bun Bo Hue, spring rolls and curry beef with rice. For the portion and quality we received, it is overpriced.

Ran into this place just before a thunderstorm and it was a great choice. The service was prompt and food was tasty, although a little smaller than we've been used to of late. Definitely recommend.

We had dinner in this small and cosy restaurant and we had absolutely delicious viatnamese food which was all home-made an freshly prepared. The prices were reasonable, the staff was polite and we were well looked after. We would defenitely come back.

Pricier than many of the pho places in town, but the Market location and the presentation made it worth it. The seafood stir-fry on crispy noodles was excellent, as were the tofu dishes.
