Great food

We've been to Indo a few times lately, for example for mother's day and a birthday, because we love the food! The ambiance is good and the wait staff are generally very friendly, too. And I like sitting outside.

Sadly, Indo continues a slide into mediocrity since its Straights origins. We will return after our family meal this Saturday evening, but we are not rushing to do so. I can say, Palo Alto wants to love this restaurant. We arrived at 5:30 pm and by 6:30, the place was hopping. They have a nice style, interesting cuisine and friendly... More

The food is fabulous especially the green curry. The service was charming and helpful. We asked for suggestions and ordered all the recommended items and they were yummy. However, we had to shout at each other because between the dreadful music (mostly bass drum) and other shouting diners- that was the only way we could hear one another. It was... More

The dishes were tasty and good. He had the sampler platter, Mie Goreng, short ribs, chicken pad thai, Curry Chicken, and we enjoyed them all. The coco Rice was also quite good. I can't complain about our dinner. The service was pretty good. I wouldn't say the food was the best I've had but it certainly was better than most... More

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!
