    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.
