This restaurant has gone through a few changes in the past few years, but the Indonesian food remains delicious. The servers are knowledgeable and gracious, the choices wide, and the portions large. There is a nice outdoor dining patio and an large indoor dining room. Ask for a table away from the bar, since the music can be loud in... More

We came for a dinner to meet our daughter's new guy for the first time. Gained a new boyfriend AND a terrific restaurant. We started with delicious (and potent) mixed drinks, then moved on to a salad or two and four separate entrees, each tastier (and more varied) than the one before. And, since they started at a high level,... More

When arriving for my dinner, I had to pass through the bar section which was hopping and quite loud. I opted to dine in their patio area which wasn't quite as loud. The decor of the patio leaves something to be desired. The white corrugated plastic cover had a lot of debris on top, might not have been cleaned for... More

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.
