“Brilliant little restaraunt!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

First visit to Opium was in November for my birthday. I went with my girlfriend and both of us were astounded with the excellent service and fantastic food - so much so, that we went back on New Years Eve with another couple! Again, the food was excellent and this time we sampled more cocktails since it was NYE. The cocktails were fantastic and went down very well with the two girls.

We love opium so much that we are coming back in a few weeks for my girlfriends 21st and we can't wait!

“Simply Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

The Dim Sum was amazing, though I could have eaten everything on the menu if physically possible. Great food, atmosphere and service. Pricing is also very reasonable. Deserves all the accolades it gets. Would recommend it to anyone! Will defiantly be back.

“lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

First visit to this restaurant for my husbands birthday. Had booked a table and was glad as very busy for the first Saturday in January. Nicely decorated and lovely ambiance, liked that chop sticks & serving spoon on tables as standard and not knives and forks. Plenty of waitresses on hand to look after you. Food was excellent, everything we ordered was gorgeous, lovely dim sum and lots to choose from, we had the sea bass which was two fillets and lovely and fresh also the chicken satay sauce was to die for. Will definitely be back in the near future and would recommend to try.
