Description: Poppadoms is a little family-run restaurant in Kelowna. For us, wholesome food starts with great quality raw ingredients. That's why we make our own paneer using local dairy. Our naan bread is made using local organic eggs. We only use seafood that's sustainably caught. Plus, all of our meat is free-range. Where possible, we like to change our menu seasonally to make the most of what the Okanagan and BC has to offer. We want to re-introduce you to Indian food and show you how each region in India is different with tastes, spice blends and techniques.

“Excellent Bengali mustard sauce on halibut”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

I was told that the owner didn't want to put the halibut with mustard sauce on the menu until the right spices arrived from India. It was worth the wait! The fish, the sauce, and the side dishes (mango chutney, raita, and seasonal vegetables from the Okanagan Valley), were all delicious.

“Quiet and great food”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Located in a small shopping complex with a movie theater and EnergyPlex, we found the service great and the food even better. The chicken tikka was on par with some of our favorite places back home and the chicken butter cream sauce was great too. The only hesitation would be that the Nan bread was just okay - not bad, but not as wonderful as a few other places we've tried in other cities.
Overall though a good experience and a nice quiet atmosphere with good service.

“Very Tasty Lunch”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

We had wanted to visit this restaurant for some time and finally in May of this year we were able to make it for lunch and it was well worth the effort. We found all that we ordered well presented and very much enjoyed the flavours and spices. The portions were somewhat small for my husband and the prices a bit higher than we had experienced elsewhere but it all balanced out with the very good freshly prepared food. Our waiter was vigilant without being intrusive. We will return.

“Excellent flavours, beautifully presented”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Wonderful food, reasonable prices, friendly service. We phoned ahead as we were arriving late. They held the kitchen open beyond usual 9pm close for us to eat. Would recommend!

“New Favourite Indian Restaraunt”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We went to this restaurant for the first time last night and it was very good. I have been craving a GOOD butter chicken since The Palace shut down in Vernon and this definitely hit the spot. The menu isn't huge but they have a good selection and the atmosphere is great. Friendly staff and the owners are great. Love the video above the bar showing how they make some of the dishes!! We had the Tandoori Chicken starter and it was great!!! We will be back for sure!! My new favorite place for Indian food! You will not be disappointed
