Second time to Glasgow and second time to Opium. Due to time constraints we booked for 4pm on a Saturday afternoon so relatively quiet. A few tables by 5pm and pretty much full by 6pm already and I can see why. The staff were quite attentive and courteous but the important thing about this place is the food! I've been... More

You will walk into a spotlessly clean restaurant, you will be welcomed with a lovely smile, you will then be served the most delicious food. And as you pay your bill you will be working out how soon you can return for another delicious meal.

I thought the food was very nice but nothing spectacular, unfortunately where the real problem lies is the atmosphere, one of those places where you're constantly aware of people nudging to get past you and you're sitting so close to people you're conscience of them listening to your conversation. The tables were quite large too so sitting across from someone... More

Went on the 21st August 2014 after looking on trip advisor. We had a lovely welcome from the staff, seated by a window with a lovely candlelit ambience. We weren't dissapointed although the portions were quite small they were delicious, lovely dishes with a twist. I mentioned we were celebrating my husbands birthday which to our surprise once we had... More

We enjoyed our supper at Opium. After checking tripadvisor reviews for restaurants near our hotel, we walked over and were pleased with the result. Staff gave us a friendly hello and seated us by a window. I'm used to seeing dim sum only for brunch so this was a treat! The menu has many interesting choices. As my friend wanted... More
