Nothing Indonesian about this place, except its name. Close your eyes and you could be eating anything, anywhere. Very average, vaguely Asian food and service.

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.

We had an awesome experience here! The food was delicious (had the calimari, flatbread, and garlic noodles), and the happy hour drink specials were also really well made. The service is great, and the restaurant has a lovely ambiance.

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.

Every other time I've been to Indo, the food has been outstanding. However, when we went there this past Sunday, both the Chilean seabass and the salmon tasted off. Maybe we shouldn't have ordered fish on a Sunday, but if Indo can't make sure the fish is fresh, it shouldn't have it on the menu. I would like to emphasize, though, that I normally love every single thing at Indo.

It was incredibly noisy inside so we sat outside even though it was raining. Heat lamps were helpful. Had basil chicken with veggies. Chicken was overcooked, very few veggies, minimal sauce. Overall disappointing. Have had dinners here that were good. This was lunch and I wouldn't come again.

I really enjoyed the food. I ordered the fried rice and it was delicious. So delicious that I wanted more. I don't feel the portion was enough to substantiate the $15 price. It is just rice after all. Someone in my party ordered the Pad Thai and their portion was huge compared to mine, so I feel as though the portion sizes could be tweeked a little. My biggest complaint was the ambiance. The entire place was lit by candlelight, which is great if you're feasting on the hunt in your cave, but not so good when several people have to pull out their cell phones to read the menu. The other gripe is that the acoustics were not very good in there. It was very loud, even though the restaurant was not very busy, and several members of my party remarked that they could not communicate members at the other end of the table. Overall, great food, but disappointing ambiance.

The prices make this a special occasion restaurant for me. Upscale but not pretentious. Creative use of ingredients, beautifully presented. Attentive and friendly service. We were seated upstairs which is probably a quieter area. Tables are far enough apart to not hear other conversations.
