Great Thalis but short on Atmosphere

Interesting food with a unique serving style. Great flavors and wide range of choices. Great food and wait staff let down a little but lack of ambiance and rather noisy. Vegetarians are well catered for.

I took my wife here for her birthday as we are both vegetarian hoping to enjoy some upscale dining. We found the vegetarian option very strange (goat cheese flan) and the rest of the thali unappetizing. The atmospheres is pleasant and the service is fine just a letdown overall for us

This is a treat - especially for foodies! The prices are reasonable for what you get. The menu is different every day, with very unusual side dishes and preparations. Definitely for the adventurous.

Went to Poppy on a Saturday night with my spouse and two grown children - we were in a festive mood to begin with because my son was graduating from UW, but even so the food and service at Poppy just blew us away! Service was impeccable and the wait staff was extremely knowledgeable about the food and the cocktails... More

The food is definitely unique and interesting but we waited over an hour to get our food on a Thursday evening at 6 with the restaurant half full. The hostess blamed the crowd that came at once but there was no crowd. People who came in 1/2 hr+ after us got their food at the same time or before us.... More

Delicious is the word to describe each of our meals. The entrees are lovingly and individually prepared. We were warned immediately that after we ordered it would be 25 minutes before we would receive our dinners because each is made from scratch. It was well worth the wait. Actually, it's not the sort of place you to to anyway when... More

First time going here, will not be the last!!! EXCELLENT salads and I don't eat salads!! The main dishes are enough to share and have the concept of tapas. Cannot say enough about the food-chicken w pineapple curry sauce and different vegetables around the sides. Excellent fish and lamb entrees with delicious sides to compliment. Great wine choices.

The food at this restaurant was absolutely extraordinary. My mouth is still literally doing a happy dance days later. We shared several appetizers- the homemade "cracker" with the cheese tray was delicious as was the eggplant fries drizzled with honey. I had the salmon Thali platter. The salmon was cooked to perfection and the herb sauce was amazing. ALL of... More

Complex flavors thrown in together. Nothing tastes like you would expect it from its looks. The sockeye salmon was very good and well cooked with a heavy butter based sauce. Most flavor from the sides I tried where salty or oily and it left me wanting something more from its unusually selected ingredients.

The food at Poppy is striking and unusual. The four main dishes come with a variety of small dishes, two cold, two warm that compliment the main dish flavors and provide lovely contrasting textures and flavors. The service is warm and the room is very comfortable, stylish without being fancy or pretentious. I made the reservation because I have been... More
