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.

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.

Truly one of the best restaurants in Kelowna, we were really surprised by the high quality of the food at Poppadoms. I'm not sure that Kelownians appreciate how good the Indian cuisine here is - after living near the Punjabi district of Vancouver for 20 years and frequenting Vikram Vij's fine restaurants, I can attest that Poppadoms is doing something...

we went to this restaurant as we were looking for Indian Vegetarian food the food fine, and service was great. Being from Calgary, we are used to getting a higher quality of Indian food at restaurants Again compared to what we are used to found the prices a bit higher, but it is a tourist town !
