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 Restaurant is rather small and interior seems a bit outdated but the food...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.

Thouroghly enjoyed the evening... More

A group of 14 of us came for dinner. We had booked a table for 18:15 and half of our table were late but this was not a problem for the restaurant. We had booked by email and communication was great beforehand. We had a couple of fussy eaters but the staff were happy to cook some unspiced dishes that... More

I've lived in Reading most of my life, good curry restaurants go on and off the boil. I had to arrange a meal for 10 and wanted good food as the first priority. Looking through the front window the restaurant doesn't look very special at all but the reviews on here looked ace. The food and service were excellent just... More

Easy to find from the station. Good food, good value and good service. Definitely better than the average Indian restaurant. Would go here again.

Amazing food and service. Had a chicken hydrabad biriyani - which was very good, and had a real good flavour. Also had Malabary Mutton Curry with Naan bread which was like heaven in my mouth! The location, or the look of the place doesn't do justice to the food they serve. Don't judge the place by it's appearance, the food... More
