It's not in the usual Victoria Street Little Vietnam area and it's not your usual Vietnamese restaurant either. It's darkish a moody space to linger and savour the tastes of well presented Vietnamese francophile dishes as they arrive. Spicy by some accounts, tasty and delicious...More

A brief encounter but none the less a worthwhile experience. Friendly staff and like the owner Jason, spot on with wine recommendations. Very much enjoyed the Bellvale Pinot and the Konrad gewurztraminer. Shared the scallops and prawns. More than happy to return.

Cochin (pronounced co-shin) is a casual but slick 60-seat restaurant and bar with dark timbers, earthy interiors and contemporary lighting. Our tapas-style share menu features French Vietnamese dishes like sautéed soft shell crab, beautiful duck a l’orange and tender chateaubriand. The drinks menu is wide and varied with specially designed cocktails, the usual suspects in spirits and a comprehensive wine list focusing on French wines.
