I thought the food was very nice but nothing spectacular, unfortunately where the real problem lies is the atmosphere, one of those places where you're constantly aware of people nudging to get past you and you're sitting so close to people you're conscience of them listening to your conversation. The tables were quite large too so sitting across from someone... More

Went on the 21st August 2014 after looking on trip advisor. We had a lovely welcome from the staff, seated by a window with a lovely candlelit ambience. We weren't dissapointed although the portions were quite small they were delicious, lovely dishes with a twist. I mentioned we were celebrating my husbands birthday which to our surprise once we had... More

Had dinner at Opium on Saturday night, on a recommendation, and not disappointed. Loved it. Great menu which is varied and has something that bit different, warm staff and overall fantastic experience. Will be going back.

We enjoyed our supper at Opium. After checking tripadvisor reviews for restaurants near our hotel, we walked over and were pleased with the result. Staff gave us a friendly hello and seated us by a window. I'm used to seeing dim sum only for brunch so this was a treat! The menu has many interesting choices. As my friend wanted... More

I visited Opium for the first time recently and can't recommend it enough. Although it may be more expensive than other Oriental restaurants, the quality of the food here is far superior to many other restaurants I have tried in Scotland. Don't expect to find thick, gloopy sauces and cheap, grisly meat here; instead expect an interesting menu of authentic... More

Once again everything was excellent from the sticky rice in lotus leaf, spring rolls, and main courses of malaysian chicken and sweet and sour chicken with pomegranate. This restaurant is definitely one of the best Chinese I have experienced
