This place has kept its reputation. Good food. Great ambience but they have changed their menu. Most things on the menu are spicy. Certainly everything under seafood for example. Hubby and I struggled to find something totally non spicy. Really not easy! Pls consider those...More

The reviews don’t lie. Very welcoming staff and great service. Menu has some of the expected Chinese food but also lots of surprises from different parts of Asia. Very reasonably priced. Food was delicious and freshly prepared.

The food here is amazing the ribs literally fall off the bone. The dim sum is delicious and a must try. We had a 3 course meal and were surprised at how cheap the bill was. Great atmosphere as well.

First class again, as always. Been here many times now. It's hard to eat anywhere else in Glasgow now as it can never beat the food or service you get in opium. Steamed dumplings are not to be missed. Well done opium.

Hi. Yes I do believe their menu carries option of being gluten free. I am sure they could help with dairy free if you asked.
