I have eaten there twice, once for lunch and once for dinner- the lunch was much better than the dinner. They do a range of asian standards, covering thai and indonesian cuisines, though on reflection they are rather pale imitations. For example there was a duck dish, where there was supposed to be a sauce, which when we finally found... More

Went without reservation and sat at bar. Service was on point and food was fantastic. Ordered from the happy hour menu and the main menu. Will be back.

Although the food was wonderful, the clientele was a loud crowd. It was very difficult to talk and hear across the table. So if your intention is to have a dinner for 2 or 4 or a business discussion go somewhere else.

Went today to indo for lunch. The restaurant is huge and had only maybe six tables that were occupied. The chicken appetizer was sooo sweet and the salmon sooo spicy... the food is not good enough to make you want to come back and the ambiance is so poor you wonder how this place is surviving... it is too bad...

We ordered several dishes for the table including appetizers, salad, curry chicken, a rice dish, and a noodle dish. Every item was well presented and tasted wonderful. The... More

The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere, and excellent service. The menu offers a great selection, with items available at a variety of prices. The food was great. Had a nice evening, but for a week night the Indo was packed with people so conversation was difficult.

I was invited to Indo for lunch, its an easy going atmosphere, pleasant service and excellent food. Maybe it was an extra good day, but all of the lunch meals were excellent, I highly recommend the Salmon lunch plate, very fresh and a tasty sauce to go with it. The theme is Indonesian food, with a number of curries, I... More

I went to this restaurant without knowing what to expect. It turned out to offer great service and excellent food. The food is Indonesian I believe, which has a lot of elements of Thai cuisine. We had the appetizer sampler which was amazing. Excellent choice! The ambience is very cool as well and the restaurant has a big patio which... More
