“No matter where we go; we will always come back to our root. We make a meal according to our memories, we cook to recall our memorable past, to preserve the heritage we were passed down by our ancestors.”
Mrs. Quỳnh – Founder of Indochine Hanoi
A restaurant doesn’t become a legend by accident. And so does Indochine Hanoi. The restaurant was given a soul by the famous and anonymous guests who have dined there and truly fallen in love with its cuisine, philosophy and ambience.
In 1994, Indochine Hanoi Restaurant was born out of an urgen of that specific time: In the Doi Moi period, when Vietnam had just decided to open up and immerse itself into the diversity of cultures. We needed a place representing authentic, exquisitive Vietnamese taste to the world.
Its name, “Indochine”, was taken from the imaginary of the French colonial period, and Indochine Hanoi is in fact serves the dual role of being both a historical landmark and a classy restaurant. Being one of the oldest continuously operating restaurants in town, it has witnessed a century of change.
