I love this place, normally, but our service last time was not as good, especially when we were shoved off to a table out of the way. The food is good, and worth a visit, but I was disappointed by the treatment of customers.

Met a friend for dinner. First we split a bottle of Sauvignon blanc, then ordered fried chive potstickers. They hot and crisp and wonderful. We then had beef skewers with asparagus, coconut glazed pork skewers, and finished with two different maki rolls. You should definitely...More

Good, not great. I had the Chirashi, which I always get at Japanese restaurants. Decent sushi but not a lot of variety or any sides that typically come with this dish. Again it was good but not great for the price.

Indie is a perfect Thai and Japanese restaurant. I love Drunken noodles, Pad See-Ew, and sushi, the Emperor combination, fresh and reasonable price as always, plus nice atmosphere. Indie is a warm and relax restaurant. We will come back again.
