This is my second review of Opus One. Unfortunately two of the three things that so greatly impressed me earlier are no longer there.
In my earlier review I commented that it was the synergy of a combination of everything that made for a great evening out. That combination no longer exists which renders the restaurant just one more higher end, somewhat expensive place to eat. And, there are lots of high end restaurants around Phuket island with much better natural environments or some special uniqueness.
The host Benny has left. He had the ability to make everyone feel special. That feeling of being special is gone. They used to have weekly live music which is gone. With out these things the limitations become much more apparent. Opus is in a larger business and retail building on a busy street away from the beach. It does not have beautiful grounds. It does not have beach, ocean or any other natural environment exposure or views.
I hope management can recapture the essence of what once made Opus One a "complete wonderful evening experience" but if they don't make some changes that feeling was just a point in history.
