Loved this place. Easily one of the nicest Asian style meals I have had. The starters were so good one of my friends decided to have another one for desert. For main I opted for Thai Chilli Beef with soft noodles, outstanding. Definitely going back soon, just to try more of the menu.

It has been years since I have been able to eat a Chinese meal with confidence. The knowledge of ingredients and adaptations to the menu meant I could eat with confidence and no ill effects. Also amazing cocktails.

I'm used to very down-to-earth dim sum restaurant, so Opium was a surprise. Extremely elegant, nothing bad with it, but it somehow "ruined" the experience! eheheh The food! The menu is limited but dim sum were good... I had saffron and salmon ones, duck rolls, and the dumplings with the strange flowers in them (can't catch the name anymore), and... More

Having lived in China for 4 years and really enjoyed the gastronomic experience I'm invariably disappointed by chinese food served in the UK. The menu didn't inspire, there are limited choices. We settled for a duck stir-fry, tofu and rice. It was okay, she liked it (and being Singaporean she claims to know). This food plus 2 western desserts and... More

Glasgow was extremely busy this Saturday early evening. We called into Opium and we're very pleased with our meal. A great menu, and not like many places who spoil by being to extensive, still something for everyone. One point might be it may not be a whole night out and more a meal as part of your night. Kung Pao... More

We went here for lunch and had their £12.95, 2 course lunch. The choice was a bit limited but what we had was very good. The starters were a bit small but tasty ( although my spare ribs could have done with being a bit hotter). The mains were excellent. I was not going to have a pudding (£4.95 extra)... More

Visited this amazing restaurant last night with a friend after hearing about it from a few people at work. We were not disappointed! We shared 4 small dishes between us to start with and our favourites by far were the soft shell crab and duck in black bean sauce. The flavours were just fantastic! Mains and desserts were equally as... More

Great atmosphere, combining an oriental feel with a modern, pared down look. The food we had was very nice but there were only a few options for vegetarians, considering the size of the menu, so maybe more veggie choices could be included?
