About
Introducing Opium KL! Established on 12th July 2014, this unique outlet focuses on Asian Oriental delights with a twist; such as Phoenix Dumpling, Fern Leaf Salad, Crispy Duck Noodles, Wagyu Beef Rendang, and the signature Beef Brisket & Tendon Stew just to name a few. Inspired by the Opium regimes of the east, the interior speaks for itself. Furnished with age-old artifacts such as an opium bed in the Rose Room, opium pipes and huge Chinese wine pots displayed vividly at the Communal area, the outlet aspires a 1930s-1960s look and feel. It's slogan, Eat Drink Man Woman takes a more subtle approach to distinguish Opium KL as the place for people to unwind and focus purely on the food, conversation

The food was really delicious and the waiter Roy was really attentive and served very cheerfully. The atmosphere was really welcoming and is a very well decorated place. The toilet was really clean as well. Overall, a very delightful experience.

We came as a group of 11 and the staff were very helpful. Food and cocktails all delicious - Asian fusion style. On the pricey side but worth it. Special mention to our waiter Roy for his excellent service, thanks !More

Hi Nicoleyappp, Thank you for the lovely review. Opium is an addictive combination of exotic Shanghainese glamour and contemporary cocktails paired with Asian-inspired cuisine. Try our cocktails next time you’re back here. We hope to see you again soon, and bring a friend!
