It's low profile on the main drag of El Camino Real is deceiving. Beautiful exotic interior is such a nice surprise. This restaurant must have same chef as it's previous mgmt Straits! Excellent service and a great mixed Asian fusion menu. Their roti prata w/ a fabulous curry sauce and rice dish with shrimp never ceases to please! A hip... More

The title of this review says it all. I eat here a lot because it`s trendy without being uncomfortable. Everyone is so friendly from the servers to the bartenders. The food is obviously Thai/Asian, but there is something for everyone. Don`t miss Happy Hour. Good prices on appetizers and $5.00 cocktails. My favorite entree is the Salmon.

The food was very good however the service was a bit slow to start. Once we finally got someone over, the meal went smoothly. Everything was fresh and well prepared. I would definitely return.

We had the murtabak and the nasi goreng. Both were excellent and well spiced. The murtabak is a bot different from what I've heard of with it looking a bit like samosa but it was delicious nonetheless with the sauce.

I've had the pleasure of going to INDO a few times, and always found the food delicious, normally having a Thai green curry or lamb Korma (both excellent). The reason I am writing this review is that this time I chose a steak. I wouldn't normally decide to have steak at a Restaurant that specialises in eastern cuisine, but I... More

Indo, despite its name, is nowhere near authentic Indo food. Instead, it is a fusion of chinese food with some indonesian spice influence, but catered to a western palate. Satay - This was free with Yelp check-in. Yay!!! This satay was pretty good, not too dry and the meat was soft. Definitely recommended. Roti prata - A tad too oily... More

I come here just about every time I come to the bay area which is usually once a month. Love this place - quality food and great service as my earlier review indicated. They recently changed one of my favorite dishes - the Balato beef - from off the bone to a braised short rib and, while tender, the introduction... More

Great happy hour drinks and food menu. Everything we drank and ate was GREAT!! Pear vodka with ginger syrup and lime juice...to die for. Great vegan options on the menu and they worked around our limited diets as well. A big A+.

We attended a family party there with close to 30 people and the food was pre-ordered. The servers brought the food promptly and everything was delicious including the desserts. There is also a bar. My only complaint is that it is very noisy.
