Went to Poppy Thai for a family birthday dinner. Strangely , despite a wine list on the table, their licence was not in evidence. We really wanted some wine and we really didn't want to go and find anywhere else to dine so the chef/owner...More

Food was not as good as other thai places we have tried before so it was disappointing. Food wasn't just not tasty, it didn't taste authentic at all.

The food was not as tasty as other Thai food i have had. My sister ordered a dish that was nothing like she normally received. Receptionist that took the order did not have english as a first language so made ordering a bit more difficult.

The service was poor, the food was med spicy but still had no flavor. Never go back, seems most want takeaways, they were busy with that more than diners. They didn't even light the candle on the table. Waiter had no personality.

A return visit to a restaurant we'd enjoyed the last time we were in Richmond (about three years prior) fell rather flat. Despite being the only diners for much of the time, a party of four managed to be served faster than the two of...More
