Really good food, that was so clean and tasty. The service is also very good and having a 9 week old baby was no trouble for them. **

Fantastic food with very friendly staff, although wasn't overly impressed that when I ordered Vodka, lime and soda for a drink, because they couldn't find soda I was presented with just vodka and lime!!! Eashhh!!

Opium is a fabulous little restaurant. The food is really tasty and there are loads of things to choose from. I'm vegetarian and often have little choice but here was different I was spoilt for choice. We both had soup to start which they brought out with the Dim Sums. The dim sum were wonderful, new unusual little morsels. The... More

First time in Glasgow and wanted a nice meal on a Tuesday night. After reading the Tripadvisor reviews, I decided to visit and I'm so glad I did. The Dim sum selection is amazing, better than many I have tried before. Will be back!

I've eaten in many much worse chinese restaurants than this, but I've also eaten in much better one's too. The service, presentation and wine list is good, but the menu is a bit pedestrian and whilst the dim sum fine, but not fantastic. Would return, but might look elsewhere first. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

The food was lovely - hot and sour soup and vegetable wont on were very... More

We went to try some of the dim sums after hearing so much good reviews about this restaurant, but was a little disappointed with the quality of the food which was not as good as what we thought it would be. It was also a little over-priced. Nice atmosphere though.
