Our experience tonight at Poppy was mostly positive. It was my first encounter with a 'thali menu' - which here means that each main course is surrounded by five small sides, each with a different taste, so the relation between the entree and the sides tastes builds itself. It was different, it was mostly good. The interior decoration is nice... More

oh no - what happened to Poppy? I'm at a loss...initially we were seated by the restroom (which I have to say had a minor smell), we ended up asking to be moved (no way can we enjoy dinner with people going in and out of the bathroom). Initially we didn't protest because it looked like a full place until... More

We eat out often and there are 'acceptable', 'good', and 'great' dining experiences. This one was off the charts 'an experience in your mouth" Delicious! We had the eggplant fries, octopus and crisped broccoli, figs on the brochettes, salmon and steak thallis, and then the dessert thallis with pandan ice cream w roasted coconut and hummingbird cake. WOW! If you... More

Had high expectations. The steak was good. The appetizer was good. The service was good. The patio seating in garden was sweet. The variety of condiments / presentation was 5 out of 6 good. The French wine was good. The fish was just okay. The odd 1 or 6 side presentation not so much. The dessert [shared] was too much,... More

The Poppy experience is like no other. I have eaten there four (maybe five?) times and each experience has been exquisite. I was finally able to bring my Mom to Poppy this time and share the experience with her. The staff are always so easy going and friendly and helpful and warm. The food is always amazing ~ the flavors... More

Thalis are the way to go. Never have I had so much fun exploring all of the different dishes on my plate. Incredibly unique, incredibly fresh (garden in the back!)---incredible through and through. Came here at the suggestion of a friend and couldn't be more grateful. Thank you, Poppy!

I had no idea what to expect with Poppy, but our hosts had been telling us for days. We got an appetizer each, a drink for each person, and then 2 thalis for the table. We chose the beef and the salmon, both main courses were great. The sides were interesting and tasty, but for how much the dinner cost... More

Poppy is a really unique place - each preset dish includes so many flavors that you have to be ready for a taste bud explosion - so make sure you are hungry! Great staff and service!

Visiting from out of town and went here with friends. Definitely get the eggplant fries. Just excellent. The four of us had four thalis and we finished everything. The variety of the flavor and textures was impressive. Really a food adventure. Easy to recommend, but not for the steak and potatoes crowd.

This charming restaurant in Capitol Hill showcases spices and herbs in its diverse large and small dishes. My duck thali was beautiful to look at, tasted great, smelled wonderful, and hit the spot. Even the drinks benefit from the use of fresh herbs, spices, fruits, and veggies. Good for omnivores and vegetarians alike.
