Arrived for happy hour but chose to sit in the patio. Happy hour only available in the lounge.

Had coconut rice dish, pad Thai and spicy noodles. Portions were large. We all took some home. So did most of our table neighbors.

Came here with friends for a casual evening out and a continuing quest for a "goto" Thai restaurant. Take it to say, we are still looking for a Thai restaurant worth returning to. Indo's happy hour looked pretty good (4-8pm). We were seated quite quickly, but felt abandoned after 7 minutes of inattentiveness. I stopped a waitress asked about their happy hour menu only to be told "happy hour service is only served at the bar". I looked over at the bar area which was packed. While we waited another 10 minutes for someone to take our drinks and/or dinner order, I contemplated walking over to the bar to order our drinks. Another person in our party had actually gotten up, twice, to request someone come take our order. There were more people tending bar than waiters serving diners. Finally, we got our order in. Angry Baastard draft beer was good, but $10? Calamari and roti flatbread appetizer was good, Indo pork ribs were tasty but tough and needed more cooking time. Panggang salmon was good, curry vegetables was great, garlic noodles were forgetable. Do order dessert as the coconut creme brulee was tasty, chilled, and the topping was crunchy good. I'll come back to try their happy hour, but restaurant service needs work. The servers were great, there just weren't enough to serve the entire restaurant.

Great appetizers - black pepper mussels and roti prata stand out. Main courses range from excellent (short ribs, garlic noodles), to so-so, (Chicken Rendang and a pallid Pad Thai).

The serving teams do a nice job, even when the place gets crowded. (It is spacious and attracts large groups). Drinks are on the pricey side but well executed. Overall a favorite restaurant when I stay at the Creekside Inn.

The food was very authentic and delicious. We enjoyed the chicken satay, gado 2, roti prata and rujak mania. Great job! Excellent and prompt service, friendly staff. Hardest part was finding it, don’t give up.

Sunday dinner got crowded quickly. The dining area was kind of noisy. But the food was great, and service pretty good despite the rush.

Ginger greens were real fresh and flavorful with a gentle crispness. Size was suitable for two.

Organic Chicken Bumbu Rujak was cooked perfectly with just the right amount of sauce. This was flavorful.

Bihun Goreng had to have a noodle substitution to rice noodles, which made it very filling but slightly off with the crab. I yearn to try this as the menu depicts.

Finished with a mung bean desert that hit the spot. We shared one, thought we would need another, but backed off to the one.

Parking in back, and maybe on nearby side streets. I would recommend reservations, although I didn't see a wait. Has a closed patio with heaters.
