Thalis Galore

A new dining experience for me. Fresh, creative and tasty dishes. A great variety of food included in the meal. I had the chicken and absolutely loved it!

food combinations are imaginative, although I am not certain the combinations really work. The chef seems to be more intrigued with being unique than creating flavors that taste good.

As I am french... I am a bit difficult. The ambiance is nice and quiet. Starters are very good. Wine menu is interesting. The main courses are creative but there are too many different things in the plate. You loose the main element (shrimps for me...). A place to go anyway.

So, restaurant reviews are always quite subjective; as well, they can be so influenced by a single experience based on one night and one set of servings. All these things are true about the experience my wife and I just had a at restaurant in Seattle knows as Poppy. To start everything we ordered was excellent – well beyond “oh... More

First, let's talk about thalis (pronounced like trolley without the r). They are an entree with a bunch of super-small sides served on a tray in itty-bitty dishes. And, they are AMAZING! One reason is that you can easily bargain and trade with your group :). The concept is from India (I think) but the food is Northwest and beyond.... More

I am an occasional visitor to Seattle. Coming from the East Coast, I am skeptical of claims to its restaurant scene. Seattle is a good city to walk and I’ve passed Poppy several times as 10th Street bleeds into Broadway. Curiosity got the better of me. What a wonderful surprise and revelation. Relatively large, big storefront windows, tastefully decorated in... More

4 of us had our New Year's dinner at Poppy's this year. good food, excellent service and a knowledgeable wine steward. We spent a leisurely 3 hours- never felt rushed. I'd go back again. it was a good value, prix fix, 4 courses for $75.

Poppy is located in Capitol Hill in a very nice neibourghood. The place is very nice, quite big with a modern bistrot decoration. I liked it a lot. Staff is very friendly and describe very well the cuisine and give great advices for wine. Cuisine is not classical at all but creative and the quality is top, not too pricey.... More

We loved the Thalis menu. So much variety and bursts of flavor all on one plate. It seems like a lot of food but everything comes together and melds perfectly.

If I'm in the city, I will not pass up the opportunity to eat and drink at Poppy. Sometimes I go to Seattle just to dine here. You can go alone, on a date, or in a party and be equally comfortable. The menu always offers something new and unique - you will not find tired restaurant fare here. On... More
