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.

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.

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!

A great family run restaurant. Staff explained each menu item and the family connection to it (example "grandma's receipe"). Great value for the portion sizes. Drinks were a little expensive for the size but that's minor issue.

I have been visiting Poppadoms since it opened. The made to order Naan Bread, the delicious Tika Marslala, melt in your mouth Butter chicken. They change the menu to reflect what is available locally. Book early for your reservations, fills up quickly.

Poppadoms, in my opinion, is without a doubt the best serving authentic Indian food in Kelowna, BC. This restaurant is run by an Indian family who are passionate about quality Indian food and who aren't afraid to switch up their menu to keep things interesting. I have not, to this day, tasted better Indian food so fresh, flavourful, fragrant and... More

This place has the most amazing cuisine if you tell them you want real East Indian. It is in an obscure location but is worth the visit. Do not anything fancy except the food and the service.

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 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.
