Our group of three had a great lunch here, following a morning hike. We tried the Martabak appetizer, which was very tasty. It was four individual pieces stuffed with a beef filling and accompanied by a small bowl of yellow curry dipping sauce. Yummy. We also shared the garlic noodles with shrimp, which was delicious, and the sautéed eggplant, also very good. For dessert, we had the banana fritters with vanilla ice cream. The whole meal was excellent, and there were leftovers, which I took home. I can't wait to return.

Had a reservation. Arrived on time. Had to wait for a table to be set although only 2 other tables were occupied. Orders were taken fine and plenty of help explaining menu. First drinks came timely and appetizers as well. 3 of the 5 meals came and a good 7 minutes before the other 2 came. Ordered another drink had to ask twice. Asked for soy sauce had to ask 3 times from 3 different people. Finally came at end of meal. Expecting to see a very busy indoor dining room when leaving to explain our poor/ slow service. Again, only 2 tables occupied and 4 or 5 staff sitting at a table eating. Great food should be accompanied by great service.

Good food. Very tasty. Service was a bit slow. We had to wait about 20 minutes to even get water or the server to stop by. Noise level is also very high inside and it may be hard to understand each other well.

Indo remains an elegant gem nestled amongst poorly aging strip malls on El Camino. They've created indoor and outdoor spaces that emanate calm and gentility. The food is tasty and well-plated. The ambiance is that of an elegant spa turned restaurant.

It is a really nice place but the table I got was shaking and was not balanced properly. No matter how good food is , if your table moves with each move of the fork or knife in your hand , it is a terrible experience.

The chair was old and was also moving as I was talking.

Dining is seating and eating. I just ate.

I cannot raise its place high enough for the experience that I had here. The food was fantastic, the staff was amazing, we came here to celebrate not only a birthday but some new success in business. The staff was also attentive and friendly it was the best dining experience I have had in quite some time. The manager made sure to introduce himself if we needed anything, which was never an issue because our server was so on top of everything.

My one complaint was a large group of terrible children that came in and were running around and playing with their silverware like they were the 3 musketeers. But the staff even asked them to chill, since the awful parents wouldn’t.

Great staff, great food, 10/10 will be back

Highlights of this meal were the spicy fruit and vegetable salad, the beef stuffed appetixer, the seafood green curry, the Chilean sea bass. The freshwater prawns were delicious but very messy and difficult to eat. The cocktails, especially the jalapena margarita and the gentleman, were superb. This is fifth time we have eaten at Indo. It is our restaurant of choice when we are in the Stanford area.

My parents grew up in Indonesia, and there only a few Indonesian restaurants in the SF Bay area. It was my mom's 83rd birthday, and I invited along a few of their friends who are also from Indonesia. We came on a Saturday afternoon, right after the lunch rush, so it was pretty quiet. The hostess and our waitress, Chang, were super accommodating and provided excellent service to our party. Chang was very attentive and very patient with my elderly parents and their friends. I really appreciated that. My parents and their friends also remarked how delicious and authentic the food was. Some of the dishes we ordered were: Roti, Nasi Goreng, Sayur Lodeh, Chicken Sate, Coconut rice, and Pisang Goreng. Overall, I've been to INDO about 1/2 a dozen times, and I'm always impressed with the food and their service.

We were initially seated in the main restaurant close to the bar and the stools....it was so noisy that we could not hear each other. We requested to be seated further away, and the staff were very accomodating in moving us. The food is very good, service could be a bit better (but it was a VERY busy night for them).

What?? I live right near here and have not been here since before the restaurant changed hands as was named something else...on a lark we decided to eat here and had no trouble getting a table for 2 on a Saturday night. The food was outstanding. Everything had great flavor and was cooked well. It might have helped that we were starving. We got the starter sampler (seems plebian on the menu, but taste was great with slight twists), the black pepper lobster (worth the hefty price tag), the salmon (worth more than the inexpensive price tag), and the Nasi Goreng with Chicken. For dessert, I highly recommend the mango mousse. Not really a mousse, more like a panna cotta texture, but was amazing. The place was pretty full, but not packed - not sure why I would eat there again in a heartbeat. Only ding was that it is a little expensive, but I felt I got high quality for the price. Oh, cocktails also delicious, pear martini well done. Was also nice and warm, service very friendly, and free dessert for texting something to something!

Great spot for a celebration. They have a nice outdoor patio and a long bar. The tuna tartar is good but they use a lot of ginger, so you'll taste it. Noodle dishes are great and they can make it not too spicy.

Went for Valentine's Day dinner. Food was very good, service excellent, ambience nice except for the volume of the music. It's hard to have a nice, romantic, fine dining experience when the music is too loud and everyone in the restaurant is having to talk loud over each other. Other than that, the experience was good.

I came here one time for a work dinner, and another for a quick lunch date, and both times, I was very impressed by the food. Good flavor, and easy to share. They're not afraid to have heat in the dishes, and quite tasty. The pricing is a bit steep for the dishes, but still very convenient to have Indonesian food in Palo Alto.

I went this restaurant a lot with my colleagues or business friends. Very good selection for veg and no-veg people.

I bring my family here this time , My wife love the duck kaptian and I very much enjoy the BALI Ribs.
The quantity for the ribs is a lot(considering $16), it is enough to share with two and duck is well cooked(slightly overcook per my preference ).

I also love the Roti and chicken satay , but seems like they didn't offer sampler this time.

Mango pudding is also another must try :)

Really enjoyed our New Year's Eve dinner! The specials for the evening were very interesting, we had the scallops. From the regular menu, we also ordered the martabak, the lamb korma, and the garlic noodles. All were wonderful; the martabak is very special with the sweet curry dipping sauce, and the lamb fell right off the bone.

We enjoyed our Friday dinner although this isn’t a good place for friends to talk if there are more than two of you because of the noise level.

We followed web suggestions and got roti, garlic noodles, basil chicken, mango salad and green beans. Perfect for three people with a small rice.

Service was fine but took a while before the server appeared after we were seated. Once we were “discovered” all was good.

We would return but next time I think we will try happy hour which runs to a generous 8 pm.


Overall: we enjoyed the restaurant even if a tad noisy for us. It was very good.

Really nice and consistent, food is excellent. Everything is well prepared. The staff is efficient and friendly. They bring the appetizer quickly, and then give you a break before the main, great timing. The only drawback is that it is very noisy, it gives the place the atmosphere of a hot place, but it is hard to carry a conversation.
