Went to Poppy Seattle Saturday Night. The place was packed and every table was full. The wait staff were nice, maybe a little too nice. My husband and I thought they all had smoked hookah before we all arrived; very smiley and laid back.
The décor was something out of Austin Powers movie. Not my taste.
We shared a starter, the eggplant fried with honey and salt. It was really good. Then we both had the Thali that is $32. It had 9 different things on it. All very good, fresh and flavorful. More Japanese and Asian flavors than Indian. But still good. Was the entrée worth $32? Probably not.
For dessert we shared the homemade malted ice-cream, which was fabulous.
For drinks I started of the pepper martini that they recommended. They said it tasted as a Bloody Mary. It was way too sweet for me. I couldn’t even finish it. I don’t recommend it at all.
We also did the 3 glass wine tasting with the food. The wine was ok.
Overall the food was good, waste staff little too smiley for me and the décor not my thing. Would I go back? Hmm, maybe sometime next year and give it another try. But I would tell you to at least try it out.
