I really liked the tom yum...got my hopes up. Too bad. The chicken satay looked like it had been cooked days ago. The pad Thai was tasteless and overcooked. The water was good though.

Service was bizarre. The restaurant was empty and the server was turning guests away because the till or computer wasn't working. Eventually when pressed, she admitted that she could write the orders down on paper as a workaround. Food was mediocre - Tom Yum soup was mostly onion, and Pad Thai was overlooked with rubbery chicken and noodles that were... More

our visit to poppy Thai was a very pleasant experience. The service was very friendly, perhaps a little bit slow but we were out for a relaxing evening not a fast food experience. The food was all very tasty and the price was great for the quality of the food. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Attractive table settings looked inviting. Our order was quick and hot. the meals were tasty and contained a good... More

Great service! Our food came quickly, the waitress checked on our table regularly. However, the food left a lot to be desired. The pad thai was burnt and the peanut chicken was watery. We won't be eating here again any time soon.
