This restaurant was friendly with a relaxed atmosphere. The food was first class and was presented beautifully . The taste sensations were sublime and we were so impressed we went back a few nights later and ate again and were equally impressed the second time around.

A wonderful and complete dining experience, that was delicious and beautifully presented. We enjoyed a 3 course meal with a well chosen Gruner Veltliner, that worked with all choices. This is an absolutely fantastic restaurant. Don't miss this place.

This was our second visit to Opium...... its just a shame we left it so long between visits! We had a selection if Dim Sum which was beautifully cooked and presented. We then enjoyed tasty desserts. The cocktails are well worth trying! Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable when referencing the food.
