4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

After two weeks of eating nothing but lamb, Angus beef and venison, I was in the mood for some good Asian food on my vacation. And Opium was just the place! Located within easy walking distance of my downtown Glasgow hotel, I soon found myself inside a bustling eatery with efficient servers running to and fro, serving piping hot plates... More

Definately recommend the squid to start and the green chicken curry and monkfish for mains. the staff were polite and efficient. Definately... More

This restaurant was highly recommended on TripAdvisor, and with good reason. We were at the door when they opened and observes that the place quickly filled up, especially with locals; always a good sign. Service was polite and quick. Food was absolutely amazing! The starter spring rolls can be highly recommended. Our main courses followed the same level of quality.... More

The dim sum are amazing and the set menus change often so that the food is never boring. Staff are very careful and friendly. A little pricey... More

Had a great meal at this place. The service was good the food was very fresh and some of the nicest Thai food I have had since Thailand. They did have the usual Curry's but also a lot of different dishes which were all fantastic.

As a visual non-typical Asian restaurant we were quite surprised with the quality of the food. The waitress was very friendly and we did not had to wait long. The decoration and music of the restaurant did not give away that it is a restaurant with Asian dishes though one does chopsticks and a spoon next to the dishes. That... More

We went to Opium for a graduation dinner, and were absolutely delighted with the whole experience! The Asian fusion food was incredible, and the vegetarian options were great (two of us are vegetarians). The environment was nice enough for a celebratory meal, and the service was very friendly and prompt. Overall would definitely be back, 100% recommend!

Wanted somewhere special for our son's graduation and he booked Opium. We weren't disappointed! FABULOUS service! AMAZING food! The deserts are worth saving space for! My Mum's first attempt with chopsticks and 'new' food- she's now converted! We'll be back!

We spotted Opium whilst walking and decided to give it a go. It's a very clean and well presented place. The staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The food was quick, hot, well presented and absolutely stunning, no other words for it. A total recommend

We ended up here by accident the spot we had planned to have traditional British pub fare had stopped serving. This place is open until 10 pm...... great as we had tried a couple of other spots and they stopped food service at 7:30 - 8 pm ish...... so although this isn't what we had in mind..... We were greeted... More
