Great flavors, varied menu. Very well cooked food and well presented. Service friendly and efficient. Lively atmosphere, indoor or outdoor seating. Don't be put off that El Camino Real entrance is shabby and worn. Once inside Indo makes up for this with it's vibrancy of food and spirit. This was our first visit, and we will definitely return again. We... More

Our first visit to INDO and won't be our last-awesome cocktails and appetizer sampler. Also had the lamb korma, duck kapitan and coconut fried rice......all excellent and so well seasoned and the service was polite and prompt. The only down side were so many people enjoying themselves and talking quite loudly- we just stopped talking and ate non stop! LOL

Our son took us to INDO on El Camino, not far from the center of Palo Alto, on a Sunday night. We took advantage of the 1/2 off special of any wine purchase and had a very good Pinot for only $24. The Asian inspired food was uniformly excellent with lots of choices. Service was very helpful and prompt. We... More

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
