Description: 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. As night falls our interior transforms, it's perfect for an intimate dinner or a celebration with family and friends.

Visited with a friend during our weekend trip after reading previous reviews and we weren't disappointed. Food and service was excellent. The wine and drinks seemed really good value as well. There was a great atmosphere about the place and we had a very enjoyable evening. Would certainly go back if I visited Glasgow again.

Went here Pre Christmas with several other couples and without doubt one of the, if not thee best restaurant in Glasgow. Staff were so attentive without over stepping the mark, starters and main course's were all excellent and the presentaion superb, topped of with delicious desert menu. Will definetely be back very soon. True saying you get what you pay for.

Went here for dinner after selecting it from tripadvisor during a weekend in Glasgow.
Its the best Chinese Ive had in this country, very authentic and no gloopy sauces. As we went early evening, we just had the Pre-Theatre Menu, It was perfect for what we needed, with good choice of dishes. The staff were immaculate and very efficient. As a few other reviewers had mentioned the cocktails, I had to try.. the parma-violet one was mmm! Overall a very nice experience.

We visited for the second time on Hogmany and the meal was every bit as good as I remembered. The staff were friendly and seated us without a reservation, the dim sum was the best I've tasted in the UK and the cocktails were exceptional (especially the one with the whole chilli on the rim of the glass!).

The decor is upmarket and the atmosphere is excellent overall - we definitely would return.

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!
