    Overall the service was good. But in the end , our nice waitress invited us to the bar adjacent since we were done with food . Her very hostile workmate started speaking in Spanish saying that we were not allowed, he was incredibly rude and he completely ruined our experience at Opium .

    I didn't catch the bartender's name, but wish I had - one of the BEST Espresso Martinis I've ever had (which is saying something!) The service was excellent, food was delicious. It was a quiet, midweek night so perfect for a catch up with friends.

    Decided to book here for a meal as we were going to a gig in Whelan’s . Would have happily stayed the whole evening as the food service and ambience were really excellent. Quickest service ever! And that was a busy Saturday evening at 5:30 pm. Will definitely be back and will stay longer. Thanks 🤩

    I felt the descriptions on the menu weren't very reflective of the food served. I ordered the beef larb starter which was served stone cold, described as 'seared beef' so i had expected it to be warm. I then had the crispy chicken thigh main, I am coelaic so asked about gluten free and told it was. When I arrived it was battered in a gluten free batter which again I hadn't expected from the description thought it would be just crispy skin on a plain chicken thigh. The coconut rice was also very sweet and the dish overall was unpleasant. I have had many meals here but i think on this occasion ordered badly, not getting what i expected to get.

    Booked for our 5th wedding anniversary. Despite that i requested in a botanical garden in a standard chair, they put us in a high chair beside the bar which is so uncomfortable for me as i was wearing a dress. There was lots of empty tables and chairs, so while we were waiting our food i asked the waitress if we can move to the table with a standard chair unfortunately it was reserved but when we left it was still empty. The food was good for it’s value. I’ve also requested a complimentary anniversary cake and reminded again the waitress when we finished our food but she didn’t bother to come back to us to at least tell me it is not available. Not a good place to celebrate a special occasion.

    Food was delicious. I had a prawn main dish, prawns were cooked perfectly and dish was very tasty. Hubby had the lamb curry and was very satisfied. If nitpicking: too many gin cocktails on the list that can't be substituted with vodka. Good value and staff were very attentive and pleasant. I would definitely recommend Opium for a nice meal out.

    It was our first visit and it certainly won't be our last! The food was delicious - we all ordered different dishes and no one was disappointed. The wine we chose, a South African chardonnay was reasonably priced and went down very well. This is a true gem of a restaurant.
