Checked online for a central Glasgow restaurant and chose Opium. We had been on a family day out and wanted a meal before heading home. Opium welcomed us even though they were busy and made it clear we needed to leave our table after about an hour as it was booked. Service was professional and speedy and whilst we were... More

We had an amazing meal during our trip to Glasgow. The tofu with exotic mushrooms dish was so good that I'm still thinking about it and desperately trying to reproduce it at home. Great service as well, we highly recommend it!

I go to Opium every week and I am never disappointed! The thai green chicken curry and the duck are just awesome. The chef also told me that they use only free-range chicken which is a good point for me. The pineapple fried rice with chicken is also amazing, this one is not on the menu but you can ask... More

Visited on a Saturday afternoon with my son. Not the widest selection of food on the menu, but something for most tastes are available. I went for the Thai Chilli Beef with my son choosing the beef clay pot. The service was quick, courteous and attentive, the food was exceptional. The restaurant had a busy but laid back vibe, and...

i read a glowing review of Opium by Joanna Blythman, my favourite restaurant reviewer so sought out this restaurant when I was in Glasgow. I imagined it would be difficult to get a table at lunchtime but that was not the case. So we settled into our seats in the window and, at leisure, enjoyed an accomplished, interesting and above...

I've been waiting to try Opium for ages (I pass it daily going to work) and the other reviews speak very highly. On Saturday we finally had opportunity and went for dinner. The place was busy which is a good sign but does mean you will need to book. The service is good, very pleasant and quick. We had a... More

Having been recommended to me by a colleague me and my partner though we would pay Opium a visit. Unfortunately we had plans for later so only had time for a main course. The menu looked excellent and we were certainly impressed with what we ordered - all the produce seemed very fresh and he sauces were packed with flavour... More

Returning to our home town and one of our favourite places. Always a pleasure; good food, excellent value, attentive service. Busy so usually have to book but an all round pleasurable experience.
