Restaurant details
Reviewed July 5, 2012

I dine at the Indo Cafe (more or less a hole in the wall with outdoor seating and also limited indoor seating) every Monday lunch time and mostly sit down outside with colleagues. I am a long-term customer and have tried all the dishes on offer. Although all are good, my favourite is the beef rendang (yellow rice prefered but the plain rice is good too). I love this place and so do many other people judging by the long line of mostly takeaway diners that queue at lunch time. Ingredients are super fresh and good quality produce is used. Takeaway service is fast and it does not take long for takeaway diners to get their hands on the prize. Lunch box deal is popular and you get a main with rice or noodles (depending on the dish), an entree (mini spring roll or corn fritter) and a can of soft drink for 10 bucks... great value for a filling and delicious meal.

Indo Cafe is a hidden gem out the back of the Waldorf hotel building. It does takeaway lunch boxes - $8 for a lunch box and $10 if you want to add an entree and a softdrink.

The meals are already in takeaway containers ready to go and service is really quick as there is normally a decent queue of people lined up.

Food is tasty and the serving sizes are generous. Great for a quick and tasty lunch!

This guy has clearly been to Sydney, as he understands the time poor office worker's need for 'ready to eat' takeaway, at a reasonable price and with over a dozen choices of fired up asian takeaway. Situated in the latest part of the CBD to get the 'Flat Earth Society Upgrade' (ie new, level sidewalk), the Indo is situated in a visually appealing pedestrian cul-de-sac and is fast becoming a monument to itself and a testament to great lunchtime asian.

The chicken satay is not like the real one with bamboo skews. Large portion (for me). Also providing lunch box...and lumpia!
