We were just looking for a casual dinner in an asian restaurant and ended up in Opium just by chance. We loved it from the beginning. Authentic asian staff, impossible to make a choice from the menu, so we ended up withnordering two starters and a main course. Each dish was delightful. the Sichuan Won Ton was my personal favourite,... More

We love this restaurant and visit frequently. The dim sum is amazing and the main courses are lovely as well. The staff have always been very friendly, a major plus point since we used to put up with the sour faces of amber regent. Great value for amazing fusion food. Best dim sum in Glasgow. Prossecco goes down nicely too.

To be honest, I don't normally eat Chinese food - I'm allergic to MSG and not a big fan of a plate piled high with rice and sugary sauces.
