Opium specialises in oriental fusion cuisine, offering a mix of traditional Dim Sum and fusion dishes. We're open everyday and look forward to welcoming you here at 191 Hope Street. Located in the heart of Glasgow city centre, Opium is great for a working lunch or to catch up with friends.

Very good place to visit in Glasgow, Enjoying privacy, family type of atmosphere. It is close to Marriott with a short uphill walk. I tried the curry vegetarian dish, which was an excellent choice, I still feel the taste in my mouth, Friendly and quick service

I really enjoyed it, and I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Nice ambiance, great service, amazing food. I ordered the pre-theatre menu, which I think was a pretty good deal. It's a shame I'm in Glasgow for only couple of days, because I would love to go back. If you like Asian food and chilled out atmosphere, you will enjoy... More

Forget the name which reminds me of a certain perfume (!), this serves tasty, well-presented oriental dishes, prefer it to other oriental restaurants eg banana leaf, Nippon kitchen in the city. Choice, quality, decor are all significantly above average and service efficient and quite anonymous. Value reasonable too.

Been here on a number of occasions. The food is always great. Never had a complaint. Owner is always interested in your thoughts on the food and the dishes are better than your usual Oriental fair. Highly recommended.

I've been to Opium on a few occasions over the last couple of years- the most recent visit being in December 2015. We ate from the 3 course pre-theatre menu and the food was nice, simple Asian fusion cuisine. The food was served quickly and the service was very pleasant. My parents- who can be a bit fussy- also really... More

A descent place with a wide range of amazing food. Dim Sums, coconut soup and cod were outstanding! The only thing - when we looked at the bill, there were two drinks included into the bill (around £4 each) that we never ordered. When we pointed out to the waitress, she just changed the bill like it was not a... More
