Wild Poppies: A convivial Asian dining experience

Wild Poppies: A convivial Asian dining experience

Nestled in the vibrant heart of Athens, in a Stadiou arcade (stoa), Wild Poppies emerges as a beacon of pulsating musical delight, drawing both locals and travellers alike. Its vivdly-hued, inviting ambiance, bathed in blood reds and verdant greens, sets the scene for an exquisite pan-Asian dining experience.

The Menu: The menu, which offers small plates perfect for sharing is crafted by the talented Chef Spyros Mavroeidis. Expect pan-Asian tapas dishes drawing on the rich repertoire of Thai, Chinese and Japanese cuisines.

What to order: We loved the contrast of flavours: the tart yuzu freshness that came through in the croaker ceviche against the piquancy of the chicken breast in jalapeno sauce. Other stand-out dishes we recommend are the salmon tiradito and the nam tok salad.


The vibe:
What truly elevates Wild Poppies is its animated atmosphere, infused with the nostalgic melodies of ’80s and ’90s music remixed with dynamic house undertones. The mixology of both the tracks and cocktails celebrates the vibrant spirit of downtown Athens and the joy that can be found in its alleyways.

Expect to pay: €35 to €45 per person.
