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.

Great East-Indian food.

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... read more

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

When on our travels, it's a must that we try out places that we can't find back home. So after shortlisting a few places to celebrate my birthday as a family with a baby, we chose Poppadoms due to the rave reviews and our preference for Indian food. We weren't disappointed! We ordered the Lamb Shank Rogan Josh (with kale,... More

Poppadom's is one of my favorite places for Indian food. The blends of spices they use are amazing and it's difficult to say which is my favorite. We shared Pakoras and another appetizer - it's name slips my mind but it was basically a deconstructed Samosas. Then for dinner we shared a Lamb Vindaloo Lamb Shank. Food was delicious and... More
