The place has the right vibe, the service is efficient and friendly, and (importantly) the food is good. I sampled a spread of appetizers, it was all delicious. They have a happy hour (check their web site), which is great, but stay away from the house wine, it's subpar. All things considered, I can definitely recommend this place.

Sadly, going by myself meant only trying two dishes. I had maybe the most famous Indonesian staple, Nasi Goreng, a fried rice I ordered spicy (like home style with my Indonesian friends). I also got Bhun Goreng which is "glass noodles" (mung bean noodles) and crab. Both dishes were good. The Nasi Goreng was FIREY hot, the way I ordered... More

Book a table as its very popular. The food is awesome and a good combination of indonesian/thai/US tastes. They have definately hiked the prices, but still a reasonable value. Choose Bali Ribs and Chicken Rendang, flush it down with a couple of cold Stone Ipas

Good eclectic mix of south-east Asian cuisine albeit tailored to suit a more western palate. You'll find a mix of Thai, Indonesian, Malay and Singaporean dishes. It's got both and indoors & a great outdoor seating area. Pretty attentive staff. A must try if in and around Palo Alto.

The location is basically right on El Camino, but because of the subtle/invisible signage, it's not easy to spot. Service has been excellent each time, and the food is very good. Recommend the ahi tartare, the lamb curry, and the pad thai. Arrogant Bast@rd on draft, too! Woot!

Indo offers excellent south-east asian cuisine and plenty of options for everyone including vegetarians. Outdoor seating is pleasant and there is a quieter indoor section as well. enjoyed all the 3 courses there. worth a visit!

We were seated promptly and asked for drink orders. They came, but over a half an hour went by and no one had returned to take our dinner order. Finally, one of our group flagged down a staff member and we were able to place our order. No one at the restaurant seemed the least bit concerned that our table... More

Met with some old college roommates visiting from the east coast. wanted something unique and special, and INDO delivered. Recently remodeled on the location of the old Straights restaurant. Interior is very nice/pleasant/and conducive to conversation. Nice outdoor patio area as well. The food was well prepared, and very tasty. Some didn't want a lot of spices, and were not... More
