Went there with no reservation on a Saturday night and we were lucky to get a table. The place is very small and crowded. The food was really good and the service was excellent.

We booked a table for after 9 which was accommodated. The restaurant was quiet with a nice calm atmosphere. I had the sweet and sour with fried rice, which was delicious. We had a bottle of wine which was ok. Service was good and attentive. Excellent little find and we will definitely be back

I really enjoyed Opium, the food was great and service to much. I had set menu for lunch at £12.50. The food was freshly made, the chicken and lemongrass dumplings were crispy and delicious, the pork teriyaki was pretty good too. I will be back for more!
