    I have never eaten anywhere like it. The menu options sound weird but served together they are so delicious. Perfect fun tastes and perfect accompaniments to the main course. Loved it!

    The full thali menu can be a bit of a commitment, but excellent snacks are available from the bar menu, and the desserts are not to be missed.

    Great place to hang out with close friends. Reserve if you have a group as tables waits can be ~45mins! Marked Indian but the food is Americanized with Indian undertones; still great!

    Jerry Traunfeld continues to wow by applying his deep experience in local, seasonal cooking to the Indian thali format for small tastes, w/ plenty of global influences along the way. [Eater 38 Member]

    I looooove Poppy. Dinner is a taste sensation. Cocktails are the best in town, but save room for dessert. Sweet Thali for two! Nutter butters are amazing.

    Delicious fusion dishes with solid vegetarian options and a great wine selection. Love the cheaper fixed price options!

    If it's nice weather, ask for a table in the garden. Be sure to rub your fingers on the plants.

    Hmm almost twisted indian food and flavors too! Not bad and they change their menu regularly! Neighborhood is a good place to have a nice walk.

    The lemon gardenia ice cream with pistachio brittle was our favorite part of our two meals. It tastes like Trix cereal for adults!

    Try the 10 Item Thali - Neah Bay King Salmon with Seabeans, bacon and Pinot noir fennel sauce, lavender-rubbed moulard duck breast with rhubarb and black currants.

    A merger of Northwest ingredients in the "thali" style. Thali is essentially tapas that are served together on a platter. Poppy is a great place to try a new take on happy hour food.

    A bit pricey so save in advance. Incredible food and PLEASE try the sea salt & honey eggplant fries. They are to DIE for!

    Tried the black cod thali. It could have been seasoned more. The best thing on this was the naan. That was really good.

    Try the Octopus Thali - Long wait. But delicious. Alaskan octopus is so tender and the lamb sausage an interesting combo.

    The Thalis are amazing. And three for four people is more than enough. Indian/American fusion. Delicious!

    I have to agree with everyone. The eggplant fries with honey are killer. Make sure to save room for dessert and check out the garden in the back if you get the chance.

    Don't fill up too much on the starters - Thalis are delicious and substantial. Cocktails are completely worth it.

    Owner and chef Jerry Traunfeld once ran the region’s most venerated culinary destination; that bastion of nine-course, straight-from-the-garden meals. And he is, at the moment, the best chef in Seattl Read more

    They serve thalis, but it's not Indian! Delicious NW food, inspired by fresh herbs.

    Meh. Food is extremely sweet and salty, at the same time. Each bite in itself is very tasty, but having multiple dishes that all clash in flavor ends up just leaving a weird after taste.
