whole in the wall with good food - Edit

This place isn’t fancy and isn’t in a fancy neighborhood, but the food is great! Flavorful, and well prepared meal. Good service.

better than loving hut, similar(ish) menu - Edit

I have been here 3 times so far, each of those occasions with a group of at least 6. Service was pretty good every visit, considering the size of our party (and that we did not all order or arrive at the same time on one of these occasions). I can’t say the food is amazing or not to be missed, but it’s consistently good. I have tried noodle soups and mock meat dishes, and bites of other people’s dishes, and liked everything I tried. The food is similar to, but better than, loving hut’s, and I like loving hut.

Better food at Wild Pepper - Edit

This place is disappointing. Everything was very bland or just tasted over salted. I haven't been back. Places like this do an injustice to vegan food. Cha Ya is down the street if you want something better seasoned and all vegan. For Chinese, check out Wild Pepper on 27th. Not vegan but they have a whole meatless chicken and tofu section.

Pros: All vegan

Cons: Bland, Salty

Delicious! - Edit

The food here was amazing, the pot stickers had shitake mushrooms in them which gave them a delicious umami flavor. Also got the Chef's fried rice, it had big chunka of broccolin it was very filling and a large portion for the price. Definitely would recommend this restaurant!

delicious, great variety, and good prices - Edit

Delicious! We came as four so we were able to try a lot of different things. The Indochine hot stone rice was amazing, but really everything we got was solid. This is good restaurant Asian food so not necessarily super healthy but it really hits the spot. The prices were very reasonable including the alcohol. Great spot!

Pros: great variety of Asian food, reasonable prices especially for

Cons: not so healthy but that's what we signed up for

Good find - Edit

Went here last week, loved the selection. We ordered the tofu sushi roll and the stone pot. While I wasn't impressed with the tofu roll, the stone pot was great! Definitely planning on going back and exploring more of the menu.

Pros: Good atmosphere, Great service

Cons: Hit or miss

outstanding find! - Edit

I had the hot and sour soup, which was yummy, but then the flavors of the kale and mushroom with organic brown rice blew me away! It was definitely worth the drive, the parking situation, and the walk. Thank you, HappyCow and Indochine Vegan! 💕

Pros: delicious food, quick service, friendly people

Cons: know how to parallel park, or else! then make a me

Sizzle sizzle - Edit

Been there 3 times now and been pleased every time! The claypot and sizzling dishes are really nice (forgot now which ones specifically I've had, I think the sizzling beef and the one with vegan ham). Also love the potstickers and won ton soup. Wasn't too much of a fan of the crispy noodles though (weird jelly-like sauce with an eggy flavour - too much black salt?) I think I'll just stick with the sizzling/claypot selection in the future :)

Decent Food - Edit

We had the potstickers which were delicious! It was a quiet night so they were extra attentive. Good value for the money.

Burned and subpar food - Edit

The waitress spilled hot tea on my mom. However, she did say sorry but her fellow co-worker was making rude facial expressions when I asked for ice for my mother's leg. Mind you I am just asking for the ice so it relieves the pain (thankfully she was wearing jeans). Also, the food was just okay and the only thing I liked was an appetizer, which were potstickers.

Pros: potstickers

Cons: burned my mom, service , attitude

Bland - Edit

I was very disappointed with the food here. The fresh spring rolls did not seem fresh... very little crunch and I could not figure out what the sauce was - I thought it was cashew since it was so light in color but it was tasteless. The yellow curry was seasoned with what tasted like curry powder (British style) - not very flavorful. The Crispy Chow Fun noodle dish was also very bland. Both the curry dish and chow fun were marked as spicey and I have no idea why. The jasmine tea was very tasty. The venue and service were very nice - clean, modern and prompt friendly service. There are just too many good vegetarian options in town to pick this one. I had a friend with me who is new to being vegan and visiting SF and I'm sorry she did not have a better experience. It was also way too pricey.

Pros: Clean, Modern Decor, Good Service

Cons: Bland tasteless food, Too expensive

terrible - Edit

There are many good Asian vegan options in San Francisco and around the bay. This one is not worth going to unless you're stranded in mission and everything else has sank in the Pacific Ocean. Service will underwhelm you, food will not meet your expectations, and by all means, steer clear of the hot and sour soup (unless you need a lot of vinegar for some reason). Yuck and Yikes.

Delicious! - Edit

Ordered from here for pickup and got the noodle soup, pot stickers, & the burger and it was delicious. Went back again to sit down and had an avocado cucumber roll and the wonton soup. So good! In my neighborhood, will be going back again for sure. I wasn't very hungry and didn't eat too much of the soup although it was delicious, and got it to go. The waitress asked very genuinely if I did not like the soup and requested any feedback in order to improve. Very nice and delicious.

Pros: Good Value, Friendly Staff, Good Food

Must try the pot stickers. Clean place. Delicious food - Edit

This is a smaller restaurant that can sit around 50. It's clean, nicely decorated.
There is a payed parking a couple of min away and also street parking if you are lucky.

I really loved the pot stickers and the Vietnamese fragrant claypot rice. We also tried the lemongrass vegan tofu which was not the best but it was ok and fresh. The dishes were a bit oily but still delicious.

They have a lot of dishes with mock meats and some with textured soy protein, but also some options with veggies and tofu.

Service was fast and friendly.

Will definitely become a favourite in San Francisco. Will be back because we loved it

Pros: Delicious, Fast, All vegan

Cons: no parking, a lot of dishes use mock meats, but they also have

So good, went there two times - Edit

The first time I went there was on Saturday evening and it was sooo good. The restaurant was crowded an I had Chinese broccoli with this fancy protein stuff. Then I went there a second time on Tuesday evening. There were just a few people, so it was kind of strange atmosphere and the dish I had (sweet and sour something) wasn't that good like the first time. Because of that one star less. But all in all I really like the place!

Yum! - Edit

Best non-dairy Thai iced tea I've had in SF! The food is good, but I'd stick to the Asian dishes as the American plates are below restaurant quality. I definitely bring non-veg friends here for a tasty dinner.

Pros: 100% vegan

They dropped our food on the ground and served it... - Edit

I almost never say anything negative about a 100% vegan restaurant, but unfortunately Indochine chose to serve us food that dropped on the floor in view of myself and our whole table, and when asked about it, they asked us what is wrong with that. They even still charged us for it. I'll definitely never eat their again because I can't imagine what is going on in the back if that's what they will do in the front.

Nice restaurant but food just okay - Edit

Went to Indochine for the first time about 2 months after their opening. The location is in the busiest part of the mission district, near BART and many bus lines, with metered street parking -- but finding a spot would be hard most times. Inside, the restaurant is quite nice for a casual place. It's a pretty relaxing environment, and the best part is they provide real chopsticks, not the disposable wooden ones. There's seating for around 40.

The service was good, not superb but not problematic either. They seem to have plenty of staff but slightly disorganized. I'm sure they'll continue to figure this out.

For the food, we saw a few really appetizing dishes come out -- stone pot rice, cheesecake. We also saw some other dishes that weren't disgusting but weren't great either -- crispy spring rolls, teriyaki "chicken", chow fun. Those lacked a bit in flavor, presentation, and proper cooking of all the ingredients. So, it seems like some of the menu is worth going back for while other dishes I would not get again. Next time I'll look for something that comes in a stone pot!

In addition to the core pan-asian dishes, they have small Western and Sushi sections on the menu. That definitely seemed strange as there are better restaurants for those down the street; it might serve them well to narrow the focus and spend time refining each of their offerings. Many dishes on the menu were very very similar to some I've seen at other vegan asian restaurants in SF, like Golden Era and Loving Hut.

While not dirt cheap it's definitely affordable, and I'll be back to try other things.

Pros: Nice interior of restaurant, Convenient to public transit, Affordable

Cons: Some dishes not tasty/exciting

Really delicious food - Edit

So far I've only been here once, but I hope to go again soon and try more dishes. The bibimbap was huge and came in a stone pot which was a huge plus and which was the first time I've seen that at a non-Korean restaurant. It was so filling and tasty and I had plenty of leftovers.

I'm really glad they opened.

Pros: tasty, huge portions
