“Fantastic restaurant, quality service and amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

I have eaten here countless times since the place opened and have always left feeling this is the best asian cuisine in Glasgow. The food is inventive and carefully prepared to ensure an excellent meal. The staff are very genuine and easy going and create a comfortable atmosphere. I have had business lunches, meals with friends and dined as a couple and Opium ticks all the boxes.

The only problem with the place is that you'll have difficulty in choosing what to order!

P.S Try the chilli salt and pepper squid! Its the best thing we've ever tasted.

“Highly recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

From its sophisticated, minimalist decor, through its elegant, black clad and unobtrusively attentive wait staff to its delicious Asian-fusion food style, this restaurant ticks all the boxes. Loved it. Highly recommended.

“Worth visiting Glasgow for...............”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011

My wife and I dined here last Saturday, after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We are regular visitors to Glasgow and always like to find a good restaurant, and Opium certainly did not disappoint.The starters were excellent, the mains were awesome and the after dinner cocktails mmmmmmm.
Great service from the staff topped off an excellent evening at Opium, you could get addicted to this place!!
