Description: 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 and yoghurt 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.

Amazingly mediocre. ..The food did very little to inspire the palate... it was overpriced and the naan a little lacking

Loved it at this restaurant...unfortunately I don't get to go often as hubby is not a fan of India fare. It is well loved by many in Kelowna and there are lots of choices on the menu.

I have eaten here several times and the food is outstanding. It is not the cheapest in the world but they use fantastic ingredients and I cannot say enough about everyone who works there. Friendly and professional - excellent all round. Try it if you are in Kelowna and like good Indian food.

The food was delicious. We had pakoras, they are amazing along with a wide selection of their menu items. My fiance and I only eat here for a treat. As it is quite a pricey menu it makes it hard to eat there often.

we went as a large group and the servers were very attentive and helpful. After quite a long wait, the average sized bowl of tikka masala was delish but at $17.00, I would have thought that a side of rice would be included - I ended up paying $2 for a bowl as did almost everyone at our table and...

Hi jjflood, i'm glad to hear you enjoyed your food. I'm sorry that you feel the price didn't match the quality. Just so you know we only use free-range meat - your lamb tikka masala actually cost $16 and your chosen dish did come with a choice or either a free plain rice or free plain naan. On your receipt...

Besides great healthy food, Harry has been hard at work inventing new drinks, competing, and winning!

We had an outstanding dinner great service ! The only regret... that we didn't go any earlier. We knew about the place but was a bit out of the way for us. Well worth the drive , food was so yummy everyone was happy. Also heard from a friend, that the cooking classes are great fun. Will try soon !... More

I had lunch here today with a manager and vendor from New Dehli. We all shared pakoras, garlic naan, Lamb Vindaloo, Chicken Tikka Masala, and mums yellow daal. Everything was fresh and heavy on the flavor. The Vindaloo packed some major heat. Best Indian food I have had anywhere. Our guest from India was impressed which tells you how authentic... More

The other day I took an Indian cooking class at Poppadoms Taste India in Kelowna. Poppadoms is a fabulous Indian restaurant offering traditional Indian foods with a modern twist using local and fresh ingredients flavoured with spices brought over from India. Poppadoms is named after the paper thin, crisp, cracker-like bread traditional in Indian cooking. The owners of the restaurant... More
