Late Lunch / Early Dinner

We stopped by for a late lunch /early dinner. The kitchen served up some piping hot, delicious and fresh food! This is our second visit and we were not disappointed!

After making a reservation and arriving on time, with our full party, we waited upwards of 40 minutes before getting a table. We were then first cramped into a table of 6 (we were 8), then moved to a larger table. We had some vegetarians among us and we let the server know. When the food arrived, the waiters serving...

I held my 50th birthday dinner party here on January 19, 2015, for about 30 friends. I held off on writing the review because I wanted to detail every excellent point. Then stuff came up and I never wrote it. So here goes now-- from the planning of the menu and drinks, to location options (indoors or outdoors), to helping... More

Our family just had a wonderful experience at Indo. We shared six plates among four of us. All were great, especially chicken satay, short ribs and garlic noodles. Service and ambience were exceptional. This is now on our list of favorite Palo Alto restaurants and we will go back frequently.

We were seated on their patio - it was too noisy inside. The patio was pleasant. The food is very good. We especially loved the tuna tartare and the chicken satay appetizers.

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
