    I LOVE THIS RESTAURANT!!! I don’t want to do leave a review because others will know how great this restaurant truly is. The restaurant is an amazing Indonesian/Asian fusion restaurant. The Chefs are very knowledgeable. The presentation and the taste of the dishes are so well balanced that I found myself saying “mmm”. The desserts are extra special too. No let’s not forget about the cocktails. All of the cocktails are super delicious and very innovative. Aaron and Pam are the managers tell them that Esperanza sent you. 🥰 Enjoy!

    Boat scallops were perfection. We ordered most of our favorites like chicken satay,, wok eggplant and garlic noodles. My mom didn’t know what to order and settled on Bali ribs, she said they were perfection.in addition we had sea bass, duck and spicy basil chicken. Two of the dishes arrived cold but when we stated we didn’t wish to wait for it to be warmed up we were comped a dessert. We tried all 3 at our table. Each unique. Nice birthday and retirement celebration.

    I think the wait staff needs to understand how. to pronounce the drinks and dishes. Our waitress was very scripted, and anything off script was annoying to her. Not so fun.

    The food we had was uniformly excellent we were there for lunch and it was not too crowded so not sure about noise level if a larger crowd. My only complaint is that I was not served the tea I ordered and my companion ordered 2 small plates which were served simultaneously rather than served in sequence to coordinate with my appetizer and main course. I will definitely go back since the food was so good.

    Indo food is amazing and meets the Indonesian cuisine standards. The service could have been a little better. I would expect the waiters to be a little more patient and smiling rather than showing their unhappiness towards customers

    We have been coming here for many years and have especially enjoyed the varied and interesting flavors of the dishes and the patio seating. The patio seating is still nice but the food and service have slipped. The wine list for single glasses consisted of very low end wines. The green seafood curry had a few shrimp in it and no other seafood (despite the server's protestations that he saw the mussels and salmon in it- hard to miss mussels). The server was polite and tried to be helpful but he was not very attentive nor did he seem knowledgable. The mussels were delicious and the sauces were tasty.

    My family if 5 celebrated our Christmas dinner together at Indo for the first time. The food was delicious and cocktails were creative. We paid with a gift card that I received pre- pandemic and they had difficulty checking recourse on the card. We waited quite a bit and the manager finally just honored it. We tipped well because it wasn’t her fault or the service staff. Definitely be coming back gorgeous the prawns with garlic noods dish.

    We were there ti celebrate one of our friends birthday and we have 1 pm reservation. They close at 2 pm but they let us stay until 3 and we had a very enjoyable experience accounting in the service, food, drinks, ambience, etc. you name it and its a check boxed for this place. Seeing the decor and set up I believe it will be more beautiful at evening. Perfect place for a quiet romantic date. Our server Eder went beyond to make our occasion special. Would highly recommend this to anyone

    This place has great potential but fell a little short of my hopes. Service was excellent. It was quiet at 6pm on a Friday night but that's not too surprising. I got the passion fruit caipirihna and it was decent. Papaya salad was great. Veggie spring rolls were disappointing. It was one long roll cut into small bites, fine, but it was loosely packed and not full. We got Nasi goreng with shrimp. I love this dish and it has good flavor BUT the quality of the ingredients was sub par, clearly frozen peas and carrots. It's not terribly hard to elevate this dish with fresh veg. Mei Goreng was excellent. And the beef ribs were also really flavorful and I enjoyed. It's a nice big restaurant with great staff, just needs a few small tweaks to make it really standout.

    I come to INDO often and it never disappoints. The service is always superb and they are all very attentive. They have an amazing cocktails and the menu has a lot to choose from. The ambiance is fun, romantic indoor and the patio is fun with twinkling lights above the ceiling. The food is AMAZING. I have so many favorites. Appetizers, I love the Roti, Chicken satay and Scallops. Main dishes , I love the beef braised stew, green seafood curry, black pepper prawns and yummy eggplant. My favorite dessert is the Black Sesame Brûlée. They have an amazing menu. Whatever you get, I know you’ll love it. Say hello to my friend, Pam!! 🩷

    My husband and I dined here on a Friday night with a 7pm reservation. In fact, we could have reserved pretty much any time because most of the tables (indoor and outdoor) were surprisingly empty when we arrived. It did fill up a bit more about the time we left. There is a good variety of food. Maybe not quite as much as Straits, but decent. We tried the martabak, poh pia, scallops, bali rib, sea bass, and nasi goreng. The martabak were folded into triangles rather than the usual square and kinda looked like samosas, which was unexpected. Came with 4 pieces and a nice yellow curry dipping sauce. Pleasant, but was hoping to be blown away by flakey roti canai. Will probably try the roti prata next time instead. Pohpia was fresh and served with a nice hoisin sauce that was just enough for the number of pieces. Scallops were...odd. They had looooooong thin breadsticks stuck in them, but you couldn't use them to pick up and eat the scallops because they were too thin and kinda pointless. Bali ribs came with 5 meaty ribs that fell off the bone. I'm surprised the sea bass isn't marked as a signature dish, as it seems to be the most photographed. The sea bass is served perfectly crispy, with a light broth that's perfectly balanced and complimented by the vegetables that included shimeji mushrooms, sweet onions, and red bell pepper. The nasi goreng was ... more like chinese fried rice, a bit bland. Overall, the food was tasty enough, but definitely adapted for the american palate. It was still a nice switch from the standard chinese/japanese/korean food we usually get. I enjoyed the small sharing plates, and appreciated being able to order several different items without feeling like we over-ate. Service was great. We were seated promptly, had an attentive server, and any other staff who passed by paused to see if we needed anything.

    Our overall experience was good. We felt very rushed though. We had barely taken a bite of our appetizers and the server was ready to take our orders for mains. Promptly at 9pm the music was turned off, and the lights were turned on. We were not planning on staying till midnight but maybe be a bit more tactful?

    Dining in the outdoor area is a pleasure. Excellent ambience and sound level. The food was fairly good with interesting variations of classical dishes. For example, the spring rolls were served with an intense spicy sauce instead of the usual dipping sauce. The pad Thai was OK, but improved when we requested lime to improve the spice level. The service was remarkably hit, or miss, considering a relatively small number of diners on the evening we visited.
