Poppadoms is a little family-run restaurant in Kelowna. For us, wholesome food starts with great quality raw ingredients. That's why we make our own paneer using local dairy. Our naan bread is made using local organic eggs. We only use seafood that's sustainably caught. Plus, all of our meat is free-range. Where possible, we like to change our menu seasonally to make the most of what the Okanagan and BC has to offer. We want to re-introduce you to Indian food and show you how each region in India is different with tastes, spice blends and techniques.

Fresh, original, great food.

I took my wife and son here this month, one of about 3 visits per year. It is always excellent. The food is always delicious! I wish there were a few more items on the menu and better chairs in the restaurant. Otherwise I don't have any complaints. I think in another location (downtown) with a... read more

Tantalizing the tastebuds in a relaxing atmosphere with friendly staff and a personal touch from the mother-daughters' business owners. My new favourite East Indian restaurant. We're re looking forward to our next visit!

Delicious Indian cuisine. We had a variety of dishes and were really happy with each one. Fresh food that is seasoned well and served hot! Will definitely be back!

We were pleasantly surprised by this friendly little place. Service was a little slow due to being understaffed that night but the staff were great.

The location is very odd. It seems like this restaurant should be downtown with lineups out the door because the food is so original and delicious. We really had a hard time deciding because so many of the entrees sounded unique and tasty. They have dishes from all over India which are different . I had the Indian style crepe... More

My boyfriend and I found this restaurant by accident, looking for somewhere to eat before a movie. The location is very stragne, tucked into a strip mall off the highway, but holy cow, it blew us away. On our first visit, the waitress took time to walk us through the menu - everything on it has the region of origin... More

Very impressed with our dining experience. Our server Chelsea was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. We started with an appetizer (can't remember the name) but it was described to us as similar to a deconstructed samosa. It kind of looked like an Indian version of poutine. Full of potatoes, yogurt, chickpeas.....yum! We shared a lamb vindaloo (when they... More

This is a pleasant restaurant in a dreary location but there is plenty of parking. Although the menu has traditional Indian dishes they were prepared in a modern way - no pools of red oil to be seen anywhere. We started with an order to share of "bits and Bobs" (cannot remember the Indian name) which were very flavourful and... More

Visited with my husband and brother in law. The atmosphere is a bit generic but happily there are no televisions playing sports games. Just a big TV over the bar playing their commercial (silenced) in a loop. I am no critique of Indian cuisine but thought the butter chicken with a side of cucumber rhita (sp?) was a nice introduction... More

Loved the food, loved the wine, loved the atmosphere and the service. This restaurant is great and would definitely recommend it. Try every cocktail you can because my gosh are they amazing using Okanagan produce. Can't wait to go back there!
