Why have we not been here before?!

This is a very long overdue review. I came here with my family after hearing all these stories from friends when they visited. I can't believe we've not been here before. Just the best Chinese meal we've had. We'll definitely be back and I can't recommend this place enough!

I have been to Opium on a few ocassions and I can honestly say that the food is to die for and the service is outstanding.

The food was excellent and the decor atmosphere was contemporary. We ate dim sum and enjoyed the specialty drinks. The customer service was very good--attentive without being overwhelming.

Hello TallyHoNow! Thanks for visiting, we spent a lot of time working with interior designers from the Glasgow School of Art and an artist called Dinu Li to create the theme for Opium which is why we're very proud of our decor. We're glad you had a good time here and thank you for the review, hope we'll see you... More

This restaurant was friendly with a relaxed atmosphere. The food was first class and was presented beautifully . The taste sensations were sublime and we were so impressed we went back a few nights later and ate again and were equally impressed the second time around.

A wonderful and complete dining experience, that was delicious and beautifully presented. We enjoyed a 3 course meal with a well chosen Gruner Veltliner, that worked with all choices. This is an absolutely fantastic restaurant. Don't miss this place.
