“Worth the visit”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Me and my boyfriend came here for dinner for our anniversary and we could not fault the service or the food. It was wonderfully light inside and every member of staff was so attentive. Would like to thank all the staff at Opium for a wonderful evening. Everything was delicious and the presentation was impressive. The food looked and tasted beautiful and the service just as good as Michelin started restaurant I've visited. We both said that we would return there again.

“Consistently Fabulous food”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

We have eaten here on several occasions and have found the food to be of a consistently high quality. Beautifully cooked fish/seafood with just the right amount of kick. Have eaten here as a couple and with family and we all agree it is one of the best in Glasgow.
For starters the crab and sweetcorn soup is delicious as are the dun sum. The chilli salt and pepper squid is just fantastic (my absolute MUST dish) and for mains the steamed sea bass is excellent as is the Thai red snapper or Xo Tiger prawn and scallops with noodles.
All of the food is freshly prepared and beautifully presented. Whenever we are thinking of going out for a meal Opium is first on the list. Book ahead if you are thinking of going there at the weekend.
