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.

Foodies heaven!

Poppadoms is in a league of it's own when it comes to Indian food in British Columbia. Aman and Jas, a mother daughter team are dynamite together. They stay true to their roots, promoting and supporting farm to table local produce and spices from their personal supply. Aman, a self taught chef has... read more

The food is incredible, but the irony of a resaurant named after a food that ISN'T on the menu?? My question is How? and Why?... If you dont want poppadoms (lentil chips) then this is an amazing place to go, but if you love them as much as I do, you'll be disappointed.

I saw this place on the way from the airport and as I am Sri Lankan, felt compelled to stop in. The reviews are all raving and though I probably wouldn't go that far, it was way better than I expected. I had a local beer which was a bit tart and the lamb vindaloo which came with rice. It... More

Quality of food is superb. Waitress was gracious, with enthusiasm. Third time at this spot and I maintain best Indian food I've had. Obvious love in the preparation.

We were out bed shopping and since it was dinner time decided to try out Poppadoms. Despite living here for 13 years there are still so many places we haven't eaten at. Pity! We had the butter chicken and the tandoori shrimp and garlic naan bread. The food was terrific. Flavourful and fresh and perfectly spiced. We knew we had... More

This is a gem in Kelowna! We had such a great experience. The atmosphere is cozy with very friendly and prompt service. The food was hot (temperature) and you could increase the heat (spiciness) to your liking. This is a family run business serving original Indian food. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a visit.

We came with a group of eight people and the ordering was a little clumsy but that had more to do with our group than the staff however, the food was fabulous. We ordered some excellent appies including wonderful pakoras that we shared. We then had individual dishes rather than group sharing but they offer bowls to fit that style... More

I've tried Indian restaurants in UK, USA and Canada and this is without doubt the best Indian restaurant I've ever eaten at. The attention to details is incredible and the taste of the dishes out of this world. Highly recommended.

My sister lives in Kelowna and she's been wanting to bring us here for awhile now, so we finally had a chance on our most recent visit to check it out. The restaurant has a nice, cozy atmosphere with some comfy booths on one side. Our server was awesome and he had a good sense of humor with us when... More
