We had three different mains and everyone really enjoyed the food. We had a selection of starters to share and again these were excellent. The service is efficient and friendly and the surroundings very relaxing, all in... More

Opium, even in the gloomiest of days appears inundated with light, coming through a series of big windows. Its rather sparse interior follows the minimalistic school of interior design, though it is definitely not an unfriendly place, as we were promptly welcomed into the busy contemporary space of the restaurant and immediately seated on black comfortable chairs.

My husband and I had a one night stopover in Glasgow and no plans for dinner. This restaurant was conveniently just down the road from our hotel and appeared quite busy, especially for a Monday night so after a drink in a little pub across the road we ventured in and we are very happy we did. The menu was... More

this restaurant has been transformed since our last visit. Service was fast and efficient. The menu was a manageable size and our choices turned out to be excellent. Our only quibble would be that the hard decor without drapes makes the space quite noisy .

One of the best restaurants that I ever tried out!! All the ingredients were very fresh and tasteful. I tried different DIM SUM and THAI red snapper for main. Every dish was presented beautifully and attractive. All together a great experience which I look forward to repeating.

The restaurant is simply but beautifully decorated. The food we were served was absolutely delicious. The presentation was excellent and the service was top notch too. Couldn't fault the place, if in Glasgow definitely worth a visit.
