Having discovered Papadams accidentally, I am pleased to say this is one of the very few authentic Indian restaurants out there. They have a good range of dishes on the menu and all of them are made ot perfection. I am picky about my Indian food and Pappadams ticks all boxes for me. It isn't a fancy restaurant but the... More

This restaurant was recommended by a work colleague as being fabulous so I thought I would give it a go. I have to say, that the place is very small but was quite busy. The food seemed to be very good, nicely cooked and very tasty. I had a mixed starter and a fish curry and jeera rice, not something... More

This was great food, great service the upstairs where we sat was great plenty of room, and not possible to disturb anyone though it may have led to difficulties getting drinks.... I did enjoy it and we got great food with friendly service. Some negatives were that it was roasting in the corridors and that there wasnt a choice of... More

We've been here a few times now & without a doubt, one of the best Indian meals I've eaten in Reading, there's not a Bhuna insight. You'd be better off parking in the Oracle or Queens Road & walking as parking on the Kings Road is limited & expensive. The food will speak for itself, the service is just right... More

Some friends and I visited here. We booked a table and made our way to the restaurant. It is approx. 5-10 mins walk from the Oracle for car parking, but you can find parking outside. It has seating upstairs and downstairs ( the air con is a lovely). Really nice decor and staff with a great choice of menu and... More

The food was good and the portions were quite big. The Indian food taste was good. There were quite a good variety of choices available. Really enjoyed the lunch there. However, service has some scope for improvement. The space is a bit crammed. But all the deficiencies can be ignored because of the taste and quality of the food.

Prefer to visit Indian restaurants when I am in UK, because not so many choice where I live. Found good recommendations for this one on Tripadvisor and decided to try. Most of the other visitor were Indian, so I was pretty confident the food would be OK. Restaurant is rather small and interior seems a bit outdated but the food... More

I frequently find indian food tasting pretty much the same in every restaurant I eaten in. This is not the case of Pappadams. My partner and I were in Reading for a week end and not sure where to have dinner one night. We checked Tripadvisor and found this small restaurant with good reviews. We decided to give it a... More

We visited the restaurant on a Saturday night. The restaurant quite busy,and we got upstairs area but the staff was very attentive and took time to explain and recommend the menu. Food was excellent, especially the Indian seafood was amazing. Our waiter recommended us to try different starters and had our 3 choices shared and served on two plates .... More

This is a fantastic Indian restaurant with a great selection on the menu at reasonable prices. I chose to have the goan fish curry and it was gorgeous. The fish was cooked beautifully. Nice atmosphere. Well worth a visit.
