Another visit to Poppy for a happy hour ‘dinner ‘. I had the Tandoori chicken Naanwich, which was very good and my friend had the Thali which was also delicious. We shared a cinnamon basil ice cream with blueberries, wonderful! Highly recommend a visit!!!

Food is tasty, ambiance is good, servers are very interactive and will try to keep you engaged till your order is ready but overall place is too pricy. They have the fusion food, and with the type of cuisine comes very small portions.

Fantastic food. This was the first Thali / meal based on Ayurvedic flavors that I'd ever tried and it was great. Each of the little dishes was it's own experience and then combining 2 or 3 of them together created something totally new. If you're...More

Poppy is outstanding every time we go, and it's unlike any other restaurant I know--it's seasonal Paciifc Northwest food with Indian influences and lots of fresh herbs, grown on site. The Thalis--a platter with about 9 different items--are amazing. There is always one vegetarian Thali...More
