OWNER HAS CHANGED! The dimsum was cooked from frozen, which tasted like rubber. Overall price was too expensive as we were charged 4 tiny dumplings for £4.50. Tiny portions and seasoning was not right!

Great Japanese menu with something for everyone. Food was full of flavour and good portions. The service was polite and efficient, wine was good price and the bill was very reasonable. Will return.

I had looked excitedly at Opium, whenever I had passed the window and was just a little disappointed when I eventually visited... It was quite a busy lunch visit and I found the service adequate but not anything extra. The food was nice but not special. I had been exited as I like Thai food but the Nasi Goreng was... More

We eat out a lot and I have to say the service in Opium was the best I've ever experienced, professional and intuitive. Food was stunning and Dim Sum was outstanding. This was a culinary experience, and I would not hesitate to recommend.

i have visited opium with a variety of different people including friends, family and partner. I enjoy it thoroughly each time i go. I would highly recommend ordering enough small plates for your party instead of each ordering a dish each, the smaller plates are tastier, more exciting and more social! Whenever i fancy oriental i come to opium!

The interior was smart and the staff welcoming. We chose: Crab Meat chive dumpling that was ok, Opium's Ribs were very good, Hainan chicken and Malay Satay chicken and 2 rice, that were ok. 2 Lagers and 2 house white wines.The total cost of £50.

Between two of us, we had a mixture of 6 steamed and fried dim sum starters to share, followed by the king prawn and scallop in xo sauce to share. The dimsum was distinctly average; the main was tasty but none of the food we ate was worth the expensive bill (it included two bottles of beer, so drinks didn't... More

I've been to Opium with my boyfriend for Valentine's Day and had the set dinner consisting of 3 courses and a glass of complementary Prosecco. The food was all absolutely brilliant; great fusion of Asian flavours! The service was also very good, with very helpful and welcoming staff, which made the atmosphere really relaxing and the food to be delivered... More
