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.

This is a terrific restaurant which we were kindly brought to by friends. I’m starting to think that all the good Vietnamese restaurants are now off Victoria St. This was a very happy experience. It’s a lovely stylish modern space. I’d call this modern Vietnamese...More

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.
