We love Thai but not enthusiastic about sushi but Opium changed our minds. Excellent seaweed cones filled with spicy fresh salmon spices and sesame seeds and a Vietnamese moqueque to die for

Decided on Opium as we were craving Asian food and walking distance to/from our apartment. Appreciated they were playing different Olympic events on TV that we could watch. Connected to a nice hotel with a great selection of food and wine. Service was great,spoke English and wifi.

Came here for lunch with two friends in extreme need of a good Asian fix. Ordered the Vietnamese rice paper rolls for entree, and shared the Indian and green Thai curry with a friend. None of the dishes tasted authentic, and all came out luke- warm. Definitely did not meet my cravings, I guess it's difficult coming from Australia where... More

Oriental jewel in Ipanema, conveniently located and conected with a fine hotel, with a nice choice of good oriental and local flavors. With a chiken soup that restored my digestive health I can do no more than tell this is a quiet, romantic and quality restorant in the area.

This restaurant is located at the Ipanema Plaza Hotel, within less than three minutes walk from Ipanema beach. A very relaxing spot (in a bustling corner!) and in one of the most upscale neighbourhoods... More
