I first came here a few years ago to celebrate a friend’s birthday and it immediately became my favorite Vietnamese restaurant in Brussels. Why? Well, the food is delicious for a start – succulent vegetables in interesting sauces, hearty portions of rice and excellent teas. You can get a type of Dim Sum if you feel like a light assortment or enjoy one of the warm soups on a cold Brussels day.
I also like my restaurants to be convivial, inviting and maybe even a little surprising. Indochine delivers all of that. It is decorated in a very evocative, colonial style, with seats that feel like old-fashioned railway carriages. An evening here and you’ll be surprised to step outside into 21st century Brussels at the end of the night. Even the outside windows are covered in political posters and messages, so you’ll never get bored if you have to wait for a table. I love coming to eat here and the friendly staff always make me feel very welcome.
