  • IndoChine Restaurant - Phuket

    Kalim Beach Restaurants & Dining


    IndoChine is a fitting name for a company with branches in Phuket, Singapore and Jakarta (oh, and Hamburg, too).

    IndoChine restaurant in Kalim, just north of Patong, is a very swank looking affair with ultramodern lines and design, a groovy musical backdrop and impressive views out over Patong all the way to Emerald Beach on the opposite side of the bay. With a pan-Asian menu and a decent wine selection it covers a lot of bases.

  • Where Is It?

    Located roughly two kilometres north of Patong, IndoChine is in a niche by a road leading up to some top real estate. If you’re staying in Patong it’s merely minutes away yet it remains a little too far to walk. You’re going to need wheels to get to it, but one thing is for sure; you cannot miss the striking-looking modern building with its large neon signage.


    IndoChine may have a cutting-edge design but stays fairly conservative when it comes to décor. The air-conditioned interior features a centre bar with tables placed to its western (sea view) side, a glass-walled wine ‘cellar’, Buddha images seated on the bar, overhead ceiling fans and red chandeliers.

    Outside on the terrace the theme is white with wooden deck floors and a great view out to sea and of Patong. Oh, and if there were a prize for the weirdest and most wonderful toilets in Phuket, IndoChine would easily win it.


    With a design this modern, IndoChine cannot help but be on the chic side (its Hamburg branch won a design award). The hip house music helps things along and the venue has hosted many a lustrous party.

    Still, as a rule, IndoChine is not a crowded and busy place such as you will find in Patong; the atmosphere here is relatively muted and calm. It’s more conducive to an intimate evening out than a party scene.


    IndoChine features a 50-label wine list amply representing a cross-section of the world’s wines from France to Chile to Australia to South Africa. With a carefully controlled wine storage area you’re going to get your tipple at the correct temperature.

    Our Fontanilles Pays D’Oc rosé is a perfect companion to the various dishes we sample – eschewing the heaviness of red or the sharp edge of certain white wines.


    IndoChine is dedicated to remaining environmentally friendly: You will not find shark’s fin soup, blue or yellow-finned tuna or any other threatened species on their menu in any of their branches.

    We sample an IndoChine platter – a medley of Vietnamese rolls, prawn quenelles on sugar cane sticks, sun-dried pork and crispy vegetarian spring rolls. This goes down well and is followed by a whole steamed sea bass in lemon and black pepper strips of beef ‘luc lac’ with rice noodles.

    Not necessarily ‘haute cuisine’ it is, however, a well-rounded experience and satisfactory. The menu is varied and leans markedly on Asian dishes and, for the uninitiated, it is well illustrated.


    Quiet and unobtrusive. As IndoChine is a relatively quiet place you’ll be guaranteed the full attention of staff members. IndoChine has free Wi-Fi.
